Shooters Q&A

Films I wish I had made

Blade Runner

I cried watching

Home Alone...seriously...the old man...

I left the cinema during

Never. But I would have had I seen Die Hard 5 there.

Directors I love

Bergman, Kurosawa, Tarkovsky, Lumet, Copolla, Spielberg, Scorsese, QT, Ridley Scott, Friedkin, Hitchcock, Leone...too many.

Actors I admire

The usuals (De Niro etc) but my favourite actor, the most interesting and unique for me is Rutger Hauer. He's done things you people wouldn't believe. You want an underrated actor? Eric Roberts. An actor capable of a Rourke-esque Wrestler style resurrection. Watch Star 80. Amazing performance. Most reliable? John Goodman. Never anything less than stellar.

Writers I respect

Bruce Robinson, Robert Towne, Mamet, Lynch. Early Tarantino. Copolla (FF and Sofia). Jonathan Glazer. Kurosawa. So many.

My desert island discs

Purple Rain, Zep 4, Back In Black, Somewhere In Time, Thriller.

The best thing I own

My daughter. Although I think she owns me really.
