About The Author

William Paul Jones is a fearsome, elemental concoction of machismo and concrete, emotionally sensitive and bred for intense post-modernism. He holds degrees in film, theater, and television from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (a place that he is forbidden from ever returning), and splits his money-making time evenly between film editing and daring heists. His once and future pursuits include freelance blogging, guitar serenading, soccer commentating, script writing, acting, teaching, and generally being cool. Clearly, he is not to be trusted. His favorite movies are The Usual Suspects, The Fellowship of the Ring, Airplane, Fight Club, and Dead Poets Society. His wit is outdone only by his sex appeal.

Movie Review: Monsieur Lazhar
