Shooters Q&A

Films I wish I had made

The 40s? HIS GIRL FRIDAY (all that politics); MY DARLING CLEMENTINE (all that love); THE THIRD MAN (all that human nature). The 21st c?: THE TREE OF LIFE; THERE WILL BE BLOOD; ETERNAL SUNSHINE...; PAN'S LABYRINTH; THE BIG SHORT; HELL OR HIGH WATER; ELLE.

I cried watching

A QUIET PLACE - the smooch. ROMA - the stillbirth. MARIANNE AND LEONARD - the last concert. SORRY WE MISSED YOU - the hand-written note near the end.

I left the cinema during

a Kieslowski, due to noise from the action movie playing in adjacent auditorium.

Directors I love

Still coming up trumps: Anderson (Wes), Denis, Fincher, Haneke, Joon-ho, Malick, Ramsay, Verhoeven, Villeneuve.

Actors I admire

Lee Marvin. James Caan. Tilda Swinton. Samantha Morton. Ryan Gosling.

Writers I respect

Milo Addica, the Coens, Dudley Nichols, Mankiewicz (Herman) - latter not least for getting Ben Hecht to Hollywood

My desert island discs

Those in my vertebrae

Books I have given my friends

'A SEASON IN HELL' - as a loan. 20 years on, he claims it's been his all along. Any reason in hell why I can't borrow it?

My death row meal

A fig - devoured as in WOMEN IN LOVE (1969).

The best thing I own

Sanity - in a crazy world. Or am I just deluded?
