Shooters Q&A

Films I wish I had made

The Sound of Music. Pretty good ratio of investment to return!

I cried watching

Almost everything, these days, for one reason or another.

I left the cinema during

Prospero's Books. Dreadful and unintentional bringing to life of the first act of the Emperor's New Clothes. And Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence, to have a big fight with the cinema manager for my and everyone else in the theatre's money back, because it was being projected so badly. Really badly - the perforations were running through the sound gate and all you could hear was a buzzing and the sound in the background somewhere. I got about 50 people sets of complementary tickets. Good times.

Directors I love

Lots of them. Kubrik, Mendes, Clint Eastwood and Woody Allen for their workmanlike economy of style, Oliver Stone, Terry Gilliam, (Ridley)Scott... and all the ones that don't spring to mind that would make me say "oh yeah. Them as well".

Actors I admire

Too many to list. Acting is tough. Why do they do it? I wouldn't want to.

Writers I respect

Sorkin and Peter Morgan, and the Pixar guys.

My desert island discs

I have so many discs, I could build a boat with them.

Books I have given my friends

God is Not Great, by Christopher Hitchens, and The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett

My death row meal

Humble pie, my words and my hat.

The best thing I own

I got burgled one time and realised that defining yourself through things you own is not a smart move. When someone takes them all away, you're still you.
