Hi. My name is Jeffrey Rex Bertelsen, and I’m Jeffrey Rex is my blog, my outlet for my true passion, it is my home. On I’m Jeffrey Rex, I write and publish reviews of television shows, documentaries, and movies. As such, I refer to myself as an amateur critic. I don’t get paid to write reviews, but I am by no means an unskilled reviewer.
I am from Denmark. Therefore, English is not my first language. However, I believe that I am able to provide reviews for readers that have English as their L1, so to speak. Now, why is that? Well, I have a relevant degree from the University of Copenhagen. I have a master’s degree in English, and Film and Media Studies is my academic minor.
Now, that may not be as important to you as the fact that I am a Ravenclaw, but I think it needed to be said. Because this is what I want to do. I want to write about movies. It is my passion.
When I started this blog back in 2013, it wasn’t intended to be a blog solely about film and television, but that is what it is now. I’ve got a bunch of opinion pieces on the blog as well, and you’ll still be able to find some of my thoughts on sports, politics, and the like if you look at some of my more outdated drop-down menus or deep in my blog archive.
You can reach me in the comments below, on Twitter, or via email.

Reading your review of “You Were Never Really Here” was a delight and I could tell, as I was reading, that here is a talented and insightful writer. Yes, quite an impressive blog. I too began with writing on various topics, and I still do. There is definitely a distinctive joy to crafting a solid movie review. Wish you well, sir.
Hi Henry! Thanks for the wonderful comment and the well-wishes. I had a great time writing that review, and it really does make me happy to hear that you enjoyed it! Best wishes to you and yours.
I look forward to reading more of your reviews.

Hi Jeffrey, this is a messages from Mexico City where there are many danish cinema fans. We were following at distance most recent Thomas Vinterberg’s Druk movie in festivals, and movie theaters are always packed to the ceiling to watch Lars Von Trier’s movies. I know that this blog it isn’t only about Danish cinema and is independent and that’s why is very valuable: there are many ‘independent’ cinema critics sites disreputable.
Thank you for the nice comment. I always love to hear people’s reactions to Danish films and it makes me very happy to hear that there are many fans of people such as Vinterberg, Trier, etc. in Mexico City. While, as you say, this blog isn’t solely about Danish films, I do find great joy in telling the world about the gems of Danish cinema. Thank you very much for saying that that is very valuable.
Best wishes to you and yours,
