HE reader and moviepilot.com contributor Konstantin “Tino” Jochimsen, whom I met early this evening at Yuma Bar, Reuterstrasse 63 in Berlin-Neukolln (near U-Bahn Hermannplatz). He’s an avid movie scholar, knows his stuff cold, has read the Inside Llewyn Davis script, and cares enough about keeping abreast to plan an 18 hour round-trip to Paris over a forthcoming June weekend to see Prometheus and three other films that will be opening there (but not in Germany until August).
