Dr Anton Bitel was born in Australia in 1970, and has lived in the UK since 1989. Now a father of twins, occasional academic and full-time caffeine junkie, he compensates for a general sense of disgruntlement by moping about in darkened cinemas watching other people's joys and sorrows.
He seeks elusive thrills from all genres (even romantic comedy), but tends to prefer anything extreme, odd, miserable or tawdry. He is at home with horror, 'arthouse', the avant garde and East Asian cinema.
Anton freelances for Sight & Sound, Little White Lies, Real Crime Magazine, TheHorrorShow.tv, SciFiNow, Scene360, TwitchFilm and EyeforFilm. He is a member of the London Film Critics Circle and Online Film Critics Society.
