Wayne D’Mello

After winning the Best Young Critic award at the 17th Mumbai Film Festival, Wayne joined Film Companion as the youngest member. He writes, researches, entertains and pesters fellow employees with nagging questions. The only thing Wayne talks about more than his love for Linklater, Scorsese and The Beatles is why veganism is the need of the hour.
