Back in January, I added two new writers that would be joining the site, and not long after that I announced another. Now, with the year coming to a close, I have another very exciting announcement to make. Director's Cut Movies is recieving another expansion, and this comes in the form of our latest writer, Michael Leibert. I've known Michael for quite a few years now and it's with great honour that I'm able to announce that he will be joining our little community.
What's most exciting about Michael's joining is that he will be hosting a weekly column here on the site. Every Wednesday (or Tuesday for you overseas folks, as us Australians are living in the future), Michael will be discussing a Movie of the Week. He'll be doing a write-up/review on what makes his movie of choice worth checking out, and personally I cannot wait to see what he's got in store for us all. He's a very talented writer with an enormous passion for film. To learn a little more about him from the man himself, check out what Michael's got to say:
Hello there, my name is Michael Leibert. Film is an important part of my life and I believe it to be the most important art form that we currently have. It's been a huge part of my life since 2008, it was that year in high school film class where I witnessed one of my all time favorite films, "Requiem For A Dream". It forever changed my perspective on art and films as a whole. I've been pretty much hooked since. I've worked on some short films and I plan to act in some next year, but I don't create films myself. I've always been on the analysis side of film-making. I'm currently pursuing a career in criminal justice and plan to always have film as my main passion and hobby. I was extremely flattered that Jack asked me to be apart of this ensemble team, and I'm looking forward to talking about films of the week.

Michael's first Movie of the Week will be up on Wednesday the 21st of' December here in Australia, so make sure to stay tuned for that, then check in every following Wednesday for his latest picks on what you should be checking out. I can gaurantee they're going to be some seriously fun reads!
