Pen pals is a column where our friends in the media write us a letter and fill in some blanks. Today’s pen pal is Matt Hoffman, he writes about film and conducts interviews for Scene Creek and Film School Rejects. He enjoys French cinema as well as the films of Meryl Streep, Isabelle Huppert, and Jacki Weaver.
In the beginning I wanted love. But then I found it with Character Actress Margo Martindale. If I had to

My favourite thing about my job is the excuse to eat popcorn. But sometimes it can get a little buttery. My
best work habit is sitting through long French films. When I need to cool down I watch The Bachelor.

At night I dream about the perfect slice of pie. Right now I’m loving the films of Andrzej Żuławski. I’m

Before I go, I want you to know I love you.
Take care, brush your hair,
