Bio: This is a fan profile for Groucho Reviews, not the real Groucho Reviews. My name is *Groucho Reviews*, and I hail from San Jose, California. I am a professional film writer and teacher. In what I laughingly refer to as my \"spare\" time, I act, direct, and write. I\'ve been writing film reviews and articles since 1987. My reviews have appeared in the San Jose Mercury News, Palo Alto Weekly, Alternate 101 (a Bay Area arts-and-entertainment weekly), and ON Magazine (a monthly published in San Jose). My reviews also appear at Rotten Tomatoes and Additionally, I am the chief film critic for Celluloid Dreams, a weekly, local radio show devoted to film (Celluloid Dreams runs on KSJS--90.5 FM--every Monday at 5pm).
