Film Reviews by Grae Drake

Movie maven about town

Grae Drake

Grae Drake began her love affair with cinema as a wee bairn, as she spent every weekend corralling her friends over to the local cinema to see the latest flick. Soon, her hunger for film became ravenous when she starred as an extra in the short film Alexander the Grape, directed by her high school crush that she really, really wanted to impress (she failed, by the way, but she blames the script).

Having sat through everything from The Bicycle Thief to White Chicks, she remains a cinephile with varied tastes (although she has a special love for documentary, as she believes watching them takes the place of paying for grad school). Her undergrad was spent at the University of Texas at Austin, shooting, editing, and producing films that were honored at Sundance and the Directors Guild of America.

You can keep up with Grae at her movie review podcast The Popcorn Mafia, or on Twitter at twitter.com/popcornmafia.
