John Nesbit writes curriculum materials professionally for a computer company in the Phoenix area, but reviews movies for enjoyment. Writing technical materials pays the bills, but he would rather be hanging around the Camelview 5 or Madstone Theaters and writing critiques of the latest non-mainstream films to arrive in town.

Since Thoreau is his favorite author, it's no surprise that this product of the '60s has marched to the beat of a different drummer. John graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in English before teaching at an inner-city high school in Detroit for a year.He then did graduate work at Michigan State University to teach special education for the emotionally disturbed in Georgia for 5 years, and moved on to teach English at Tuba City High School on the Navajo Reservation for over 20 years. During those years he became locally famous for coaching a 4-time state championship chess team and became somewhat infamous among the school administration for challenging its film-rating policy when developing a film appreciation course.

Without ever taking formal courses in film study, John's self-taugh knowledge of film began with countless hours of viewing, reading, and researching films he used for teaching. Being relatively isolated from cinematic culture on the reservation, he began buying many videos by Hitchcock, Truffaut, Fellini, and other classic directors. Since then VHS and DVDs have multiplied greatly.

Now early-retired from teaching and avoiding school administrators forever, he spends a great deal of time watching and reviewing films--foreign and art-house films being a special interest. He serves as editor-in-chief at media review site and is a member of the Online Film Critics Society. Other passions: traveling around the United States, hanging at music concerts (especially blues), and following the Arizona Diamondbacks during baseball season.
