Welcome to the John Bleasdale Universe, a collection of John Bleasdale's writing. And a blog.
I write mostly about film but also occasionally politics. My writing has appeared in The Guardian, The Independent, The Skinny, CineVue and The What and the Why, as well as Il Manifesto in Italian.
I recently attended the first Pingyao International Film Festival, which I wrote a blog post on as well as reporting for the BFI's Sight and Sound Magazine.
My name is John Bleasdale. I'm a writer based in Italy. My work has appeared in a number of internet sites as well as The Independent and The Guardian as well as the Italian daily newspaper Il Manifesto. I've contributed chapters and essays to a number of books. Some of my reviews are collected at Rotten Tomatoes and you can also follow me on Letterboxd.
