Hello dear e-traveller, and welcome to my humble, yet salubrious, e-bode… The House of Reed. Simply stroll through the rooms above to discover everything you’ve ever wanted to know (or more likely not) about Josh Reed… filmmaker, artist, philanthropist, self-aggrandiser.
Joshua S Reed Esq.
I’m a writer, director, animator and doe-eyed lover of all things transgressive. I’m Australian, although I was born in Islington, within earshot of the Bow Bells, so technically I’m a Cockney. I sprang from my mother’s loins a Pisces, but changed my star sign to Taurus because it’s tougher. I weigh 65ish kilos and am 177.5cm tall. I used to be 178cm but lost half a centimetre when I broke my back, crushing my T12 vertebra. I also had a kidney transplant when I was 22 which failed 7 years ago, and I've been back on dialysis since then. But I'm still going, so I choose to believe I can't be killed. No one's proven me wrong yet.
But back to film.
I love film. I love the way it looks and moves and tells stories, I love its innate profanity and elusive potential for the sublime. I love that film embraces every other art form and treats them so shabbily.
And I operate on one very simple conviction: that films are better when people die.
