What is the main focus of your site?
A Potpourri of Vestiges is primarily a movie review blog dedicated to cinema, especially as an art-form. The blog aims to bring to life the cinematic gems that have lost into obscurity.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
Cinema is not only my passion, but also my greatest obsession. My favorite movie-makers include Akira Kurosawa, Stanley Kubrick, Luis Bunuel, Andrei Tarkowsky, Federico Fellini, Ingmar Bergman, Satyajit Ray, Sergio Leonne, Francis Ford Cuppola, Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan. I also have a penchant for writing, and the ability to metamorphose the mundane into sublime through the use of words comes second to none to me.

Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
The purpose of the blog is to get people acquainted with the true purpose and potential of cinema, not only as a medium of entertainment but also as a medium of education and enlightenment. Thus, the more interactive the blog becomes the closer the blog gets to fulfilling its purpose.

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
The site has been active for about 8 months…I published the first blog in May 2011, but the topics used to be random then. Since October, I have tried to solely focus on cinema as a movie review website. I am fairly active and try posting 2-3 posts every week.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Ran (1985), Dersu Uzala (1975) and The Godfather (1972)
