I love films. I have a deep passion for films and filmmaking. Thus, I wish to express it through film reviews, unique lists, editorials, featured polls, links to movie-news, and more.

My blog’s title refers to the “Allegory of the Cave” written by Greek philosopher Plato in his work The Republic. Many individuals have noted parallels between Plato’s Cave and the modern movie theater. I agree with many of the parallels, so I decided to make “The Modern Allegory” my title.


Please bear with me as I continue to establish this site. I hope you will find my site enjoyable, informative, rewarding, or useful. Comments and debate are welcome!
