Princess Old Lady
By all accounts born at the wrong time, Princess Old Lady’s cinematic desires lie-not in the bloodshed and gore of horror, nor does she particularly pine for the schmaltz and sass of the era in which she grew-up (1980’s) – however, that being said, she is a lady of varying tastes. The dreary-greyness of a 1970’s kitchen sink drama will light a socio-political fire within her soul, obscure documentaries about life and love will maketh her emotional cup runneth over and the wild, psychedelic meanderings of Asian cinema will remind her that’s there’s more to life THAN THIS.
Princess Old Lady loves to scour Netflix and Amazon for obscure films about relationships, love, life and most importantly: the apocalypse. Once fervent in her search for cheap import Asian DVDs in the past, she has a colourful and magical side that desires to indulge in the imagination of the East. Yet, suggest a bona fide film about the end of the world, and she’s just as delighted.
