Signup & Support

I am excited and grateful that the pieces I post here on Plot and Theme even get read at all, especially by strangers.  It’s rewarding to know that I can connect with film lovers of all types through my writing.  If you enjoy the writing here on Plot and Theme, please sign up to my mailing list, located in the sidebar to the right. This is probably the single-most important way you can lend your support, while simultaneously being the cheapest. What a deal! ——->

In addition, i have set up an incredibly simple pool at PayPal for Plot and Theme, located here:

Finally, and most confusingly for you fans of fiat money, I happily accept Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash donations to Plot and Theme’s personal Addresses.  If you want to learn about Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash (which you should), I encourage you to go to where you can click around, educate yourself about cryptocurrency, and even get yourself your very own wallet.  After purchasing some bitcoin from an exchange, you can donate to the addresses below.

Plot and Theme is also a Brave publisher, meaning that you can donate to the above address anonymously and in proportion to the amount of time you spend here if you’re browsing with Brave.  If you’re interested at all in Brave, give it a look-see.

Brave is a really cool thing, made by the same guy who created Firefox.

If you would like to contribute in another way then please leave a comment and let me know that there is demand for something else.  And, at this point I’d like to reiterate:  Plot and Theme is always going to be free to read, and always going to be absent ads.  I love watching and writing about movies, so I am going to keep up with regular posts regardless of donations.  I’ll also always be grateful for your readership, commentary, and suggestions, because these levels of support are just as important as anything else I’ve listed on this page.

  1. Hi, I love this website, I stumbled upon it as I was looking for analyses on Silence of the Lambs. You should also have a PayPal account for donations – all you need is your email


  2. Hello Mr. Jacobs,

    I am a senior at Hamilton College, majoring in Cinema Studies and French. I have learned a lot from your cinematic analyses. I particularly like how you devote space to important shots in a film and reflect on the role they play and on what they reveal about a director’s style. Would you be interested in publishing articles that follow a similar analytical method on your blog? I have some experience in writing about film and am eager to learn from you.

    Thank you,
    Ghada Emish
