Drunk on Film: An Introduction
Drunk on Film is an Instagram account born out of a love for Film and Craft Beer. The account is curated by me, Benton Edwards, and focuses on pairing what I consider to be the best (past and present) physical media releases, and whatever beer I have in the refrigerator at the moment. Sometimes themes can be derived from these pairings, but mostly it's just whatever I'm feeling at the moment. I do love the happy accidents though!
While I don't believe anything will ever beat the moviegoing experience, there's just something so satisfying about being in the comfort of your own home, pulling a film from the shelf (while delighting in the cover art and liner notes), and pressing play to be transported into another place or time. Add a tasty beverage to the mix and the experience is really hard to beat!
This is why I'm so excited at the prospect of expanding Drunk on Film to a semi-regular column here at Genre Squad. In a time where internet culture can be so negative and sometimes downright vile towards the things we love, a site where we can celebrate genre cinema and build a community around our love for the art form sounds like a very enticing proposition.
As always, drink responsibly and enjoy the show.
