I left the cinema during

Never left a movie. If it's bad, I stay to try and figure out why it's bad.

Directors I love

Tarantino, Spielberg, Scorsese, Nolan. These may seem like uninspired answers, but god damn it they're bloody good.

Writers I respect

Tarantino, Diablo Cody, Woody Allen, Mamet.

My desert island discs

Gotta be "The Best of the Beatles"

Books I have given my friends

A visit from the goon squad. George Washington - A Life.

More about me

I grew up in a time and place where "making movies" was considered the stuff of fantasy, for other people. I've lost a lot of good years following the bad advice of people who'd given up even having dreams. This is all I've ever wanted to do. So I'm doing it.
