Adrienne McIlvaine

What is your form of artistic expression?

I've been writing for as long as I can remember and since both my parents are writers it just seemed inevitable. Originally I planned to major in journalism but switched to film studies. I never really wanted to be a filmmaker but I love movies. Now I'm a freelance film critic and write about film, TV, and pop culture. 

If you could have a creative session with any famous person, living or dead, whom would it be?

Sitting down and talking with Stanley Kubrick or David Lynch would be the ultimate. 

Who is your personal style icon?

Bjork and Tilda Swinton. Women who create their own reality. 

If you could go back in time and live in any time period, in which period would you choose to live?

I lived through the '80s but I'd love to go back and do it all again as an adult. So much of the art and music I love was being made then, all over the U.S. and Europe, and it would be amazing to experience it as it was happening. 

If you we an alcoholic beverage what would you be?

Jalapeño margarita (salted rim, of course)

If you could bring one album with you to a desert island, which would you bring?

Kraftwerk, Minimum - Maximum.
