Review: “10,000 Saints” will rock you gently.

 10,000 Saints follows three screwed up young people and their equally screwed up parents in the age of CBGB’s, yuppies and the tinderbox of gentrification that exploded into the Tompkins Square Park Riots in New York’s East Village in the 1980s. This film is essentially the story of how small life connections become the ties that bind a group of estranged friends Read More →

However, it wasn’t until a 2nd semester Voice Production and Speech class in which I got up in Read More →
