Shooters Q&A

Films I wish I had made

ALL ABOUT EVE, THIS IS SPINAL TAP (I know, it was improvised), several zillion others

I cried watching

GONE WITH THE WIND - politically indefensible, but gotta love that Scarlett O'Hara (note tribute in my The Secretary File)

I left the cinema during

THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT - well, didn't leave so much as fell asleep. Would probably leave most Adam Sandler movies and violent gore flicks if I went to them in the first place

Directors I love

Howard Hawks, Michael Powell, Billy Wilder, Preston Sturges, Stephen Frears, David Lean, Todd Haynes, Chris Guest, Spike Lee, Amy Heckerling, Richard Linklater, several zillion others

Actors I admire

Too many to list

Writers I respect

Anyone who gives it the old college try

My desert island discs

I don't know, but whatever it is, it's got to be funky
