Shooters Q&A

Films I wish I had made

I wish I'd made a lot, but the first was Raiders of the Lost Ark.

I cried watching

I cry a lot, but La La Land was a good workout even for me.

I left the cinema during

I never have - but the times I've really wanted to have always been down to people in the audience, not the film on the screen.

Directors I love

David Lynch. David Fincher. All the Davids.

Actors I admire

Mark Rylance. Emma Stone. Frances McDormand. Emily Blunt. Oliver Reed.

Writers I respect

Coen Brothers. Michael Frayn. Dennis Potter. David Lynch. Nora Ephron.

My desert island discs

Carter Burwell. Alexander Desplat. Warren Ellis. Angelo Badalamenti.

Books I have given my friends

The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Because if I'm not happy why should they be?

My death row meal

Recently became vegetarian so this is complex. For now let's say Thai fried aubergine curry with noodles.

The best thing I own

I have a bottle of whiskey from the 1970s. I don't think I'll ever dare open it.

More about me

If I was on death row I'd morally be already compromised so might order crispy peking duck instead. It's complex.
