José Roberto Landaverde Cinéfilo and music lover. I am fascinated by writing, listening, reading and commenting on everything related to the seventh art. I think Fleetwood Mac is underrated. I’m a fan of Rocky and Back to the Future and obviously one day I’ll upload the « Philly Steps » and drive a DeLorean. Faithful believer that cinema is the best teleporting machine, and also that on the big screen we can all see ourselves represented.
