Julien Bassignani

I am a French film buff who has been living in London since 2008. Cinema has always been my passion and I am particularly fond of movies from the 40s to the 70s. My favorite directors are Alfred Hitchcock, Henri-Georges Clouzot, Jean-Pierre Melville, Claude Chabrol, Roman Polanski, Brian de Palma and John Carpenter. I'm currently Home Cinema Lead for The Digital Fix.
