Shooters Q&A

Films I wish I had made

One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest; The Lives of Others; Jaws; Pans Labyrinth; Angels with dirty faces;

I cried watching

Ice Age - don't ask!

I left the cinema during

I have never left the cinema voluntary, but I was thrown out of watching Star Wars in the seventies. Does that count?

Directors I love

Sidney Lumet; early Ken Loach before he became miserable

Actors I admire

All actors who put their success on a par with the success of the whole project.

Writers I respect

Richard Curtis - don't like his films, but you've got to admire a man who consistently hits his audience. And who can forget that immortal line: 'C'mon Dad, let's both go and get the shit kicked out of us by love!' Brilliant.

My desert island discs

Those thick vinyl 78s that I could bind together with palm trunks and make a cunning escape to civilisation.

Books I have given my friends

Can't think of a book but last week I spotted an article about moving out of your parents house and setting up on your own - I gave it to my son.

My death row meal

Got to be a Ruby!

The best thing I own

My car - too modest to tell.
