Somewhere in Scotland — often with the curtains drawn — lives our most prolific member, at least in terms of his tally of films watched. You won’t find much of an online presence for Adam Cook outside Letterboxd, but within the site his depth of knowledge, generosity and authoritative writing style are all on show. We asked Adam a few questions for the first in a series of red-carpet interviews with the people who make Letterboxd great…
Adam seems to possess an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of films, as evidenced by the list he created where people give vague descriptions of often-obscure films they can’t remember the name of and he identifies them.
Social sites often talk about how their users are what makes them great. It becomes a cliché because in fact it’s incredibly true. We have some amazing people on Letterboxd, writing thoughtful, intelligent reviews and creating interesting (and funny!) lists, and it’s a humbling thing to have such amazing people using a service you had a hand in creating.
