In the day, Carsten Knox works as a journalist in Halifax, Nova Scotia. At night he stares out at the rain-slick streets, watches movies, and writes about what he’s seeing.

He became a film fan through his parents, who exposed him to the early work of Clint Eastwood and Steven Spielberg before he was PG-13. In his 20s he worked in film production in Toronto, including a stint on X-Men and an action movie called Highwaymen.


These days he’s a jack of many trades, master of a few. He hosts The Knox Office film review column on CBC Information Morning Radio in Nova Scotia.

His favourite films shift with the seasons, but the list has included Lost In Translation, The Russia House, Nikita, Blade Runner, Chinatown, and Booksmart.

He appreciates your visiting the blog and hopes you enjoy his many opinions, even if you don’t always agree with them.
