That's like a life goal of mine, haha.

I've been writing here for nearly 2 years. In general, reviews about under-the-radar movies don't get read. There are exceptions, of course. You can find some writers who have success writing film lists - Eric Pierce or Simon Dillon for example.

But in my experience, it's extremely hard to get people read about not well-known films. Here's an example: just last week, I wrote about Lamb. It's a really weird horror/drama that was getting more attention on Twitter lately. I wrote a short piece on it. It currently has 20 reads. (https://medium.com/vulnerable-man/what-would-you-do-with-a-half-lamb-half-human-baby-1e06327c9597).

But a little while ago I also wrote about The Empty Man (a failed horror that gradually became a cult film), which garnered around 1,5K views. Mostly external views, though.

There is no right or wrong stratergy, you're right about that. You need a bit of luck, too.

I'm glad if you were able find some encouragement in my piece since I know how what I wrote sounds. My advice to you would be to start with classics, or well-known films first. In that way, you might find a better response and read ratio, which will keep you going and then later on you can begin introducing good, under-the-radar movies gradually.

Good luck and I hope you come back to chat more since I can see you're a true cinephile, too. :)
