The Best Films of Our Lives is composed of film reviews and general cinematic musings of Ethan Gates, a graduate of Amherst College and NYU’s M.A. program in Moving Image Archiving and Preservation. This blog stretches back into his college days as a critic for The Amherst Student, and since then he has contributed film reviews to The New Republic and Diabolique. It used to have a lot more ramblings about the Oscars, but after fleecing his friends in various betting pools over the years, the fun’s gone out of that a bit.
Currently, he lives in Connecticut and works in digital preservation for Yale University Library, and you can find his preservation and technology-related ramblings at his other blog, The Patch Bay, or in project updates for the Scaling Software Preservation and Emulation Infrastructure program.
