Rob Ager - A name to take notice of

If you've found this site, then you're probably a movie fanatic. We all are.

But how far does your fanaticism go?

Do you enjoy the occasional cult film when there's nothing good on TV? Do you own a sizable collection of most "classics" and continually search for more "hidden gems"? Do you spend a lot of time reading and writing about movies, watching making-ofs and partake in online discussions?

Whatever level your obsession with films may be at, there are few amongst us who can compete with Rob Ager.

He is not content with merely watching, reading about, or even making movies of his own. He has taken it to the next level.

Spending innumerable hours doing tedious research, he does incredibly in-depth analysis' of more or less mysterious classics, and have actually re-discovered secrets and meaning in movies which have generally been regarded as meaningless, or films that are simply disregarded as mindless entertainment.

Don't believe me? Here's his analysis of Pulp Fiction

If that's not enough, here's his analysis if 2001 A Space Odyssey, commonly labeled as "The movie nobody understands." There has been several attempts at analyzing 2001, with several very interesting ideas, but nobody has ever found what mr. Ager points out:

If you even want to call yourself knowledgeable in the movies, you cannot ignore taking a look at this person's amazing website at:

  1. That's one of my favorite web sites along with this blog. His theories on The Exorcist were really top notch
