Hugh Lilly is a freelance film critic living in Auckland. Over the years he’s written for the New Zealand Listener, ONFILM magazine, and The Pantograph Punch. He likes Wes Anderson more than most people, and every time he watches Vertigo it seems like the best movie of all time. (The same thing happens with Paul Simon’s Graceland.) He knows all the words to the Ja Rule & Ashanti track “What’s Luv?” He has sporadically maintained a blog at cinefile.net.nz, and tweets at @insequential.
