Shooters Q&A

Films I wish I had made

I'm not gonna touch the masterpieces of cinema, as any filmmaker will drool at the idea of being responsible for the Godfather or Citizen Kane. More down to earth and things I really wish I had made myself are Being John Malkovic, The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Stranger than Fiction, Little Miss Sunshine, Adaptation, the Big White, Fargo.

Directors I love

Tim Burton, Pedro Almodovar, David Fincher, Clint Eastwood, Terry Gilliam. Orson Welles is a personal all time favourite, but isn't that pretty much obvious for anyone who is even remotely interested in filmmaking?

Actors I admire

I'm a real sucker for those actors who change haircut and clothes and morph into a character. Much as I don't like labels, I guess it's character actors who really rock my boat. If you really need some names, I'll go with Bryan Cranston, Hugo Weaving, Bruce Greenwood (watch him in Atom Egoyan's movies), Brad Dourif, the ever great Orson Welles, in his every shape and form and eyebrow movement. For slightly more sentimental reasons, having created characters that made me into the filmmaker I am today, I'll also mention Boris Karloff, Robin Williams, Rutger Hauer, Kenneth Branagh, Lance Henriksen, Monica Vitti, Alberto Sordi,

Writers I respect

Charlie Kaufman and Richard Matheson are my all time scriptwriting heroes, up there on a pedestal. Quentin Tarantino for his great plots and lines. TV writer heroes, definitely David Milch. He is a gem, his dialogues are like water for the thirsty. Chris Carter, whom I believe was one of the first show creators to give serialised drama a real top quality status. Vince Gilligan, who has created probably TV's best show in history.

My desert island discs

Blade Runner, Ladyhawke, The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Stranger Than Fiction, Little Miss Sunshine, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Fargo. TV series Deadwood, Millennium, X-Files, John from Cincinnati and, it goes without saying, Breaking Bad.

Books I have given my friends

"Good Omens", Jasper Fforde's books, Terry Pratchett's "Mort"

My death row meal

Pizza Margherita

The best thing I own

My brain

More about me

The night doesn't belong to lovers, sorry Mr Springsteen... it may do a bit, but it really belongs to writers!
