Film bits and bobs


industrial-scene-from-Eraserhead-2Anton Bitel was born in Australia, and has lived in the UK since 1989. Proud father of twins, occasional Classicist and full-time caffeine junkie, he compensates for a general sense of disgruntlement by moping about in darkened screening rooms watching other people’s joys and sorrows. He seeks elusive vicarious thrills from all genres and non-genres, but tends to prefer anything extreme, odd, miserable or tawdry.

He is at home with horror, ‘arthouse’, the avant garde and Asian cinema. A regular freelancer for Sight & Sound, Little White Lies, TheHorrorShow, FilmlandEmpire, Twitch, FilmDivider, Grolsch FilmWorks, Film4 and EyeforFilm, he joined the Online Film Critics Society in 2007 and the London Film Critics’ Circle in 2009.
