Patrick Williamson walks the fine line between cinemania and obscurity. Thanks to Netflix Watch Instantly, he is rarely seen, but is notorious for furiously ranting to no one in particular about film and music, some of which end up as incoherent posts on his blog Red Herrings. He resides in the seclusion of a clown college in the Chicago suburbs, and is perhaps best known for his 1951 novel, The Catcher in the Rye.
