Tim Sweeney


Tim is a fastidious slob, a liberal conservative, and a pragmatic anarchist. His film history got off to an early start. At age eleven, Tim would use his lunch money to pay the janitor of his grade school to forge notes to the video store. The notes claimed to be from Tim’s parents and said that Tim was allowed to rent R and NC-17 films. He starved during the day, but he knew that he had Scorsese and Kubrick waiting for him at home.

Tim was born in Billings, Montana, raised in Madison, Wisconsin, lived in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, and resides in Austin, Texas. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a major in English and Journalism which took somewhere between four and eight years. The delay was likely due to an extensive film addiction. For those who would like some frame of reference, Tim’s favorite films by decade are: THE GENERAL (20s), MR SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON (30s), THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE (40s), 12 ANGRY MEN (50s), DR STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB (60s), TAXI DRIVER (70s), PARIS, TEXAS (80s), MILLER’S CROSSING (90s), and ADAPTATION (00s). He also believe that THIS IS SPINAL TAP is the finest comedy ever made. His personal site is The Man From The Garage.  It is not recommended for people under the age of 28 or over the age of 31.

Tim considers himself good friends with Bill Murray, the Coen Brothers, and Charlie Kaufman. They do not reciprocate that sentiment.
