My name is Frank Falisi. I’m a New Jersey-based writer. I wrote for Tiny Mix Tapes and currently contribute as a staff writer for Bright Wall/ Dark Room. My writing focuses on theorizing alternative cinemas as well as thinking about NJ/ NY film histories and Classical Hollywood Style in alternative ways.  That writing can be found on various other corners of the internet—some of those corners are listed below. Most days,  I work with the theater group Shakespeare 70 and walk my dog, Finley.
