Shooters Q&A

Films I wish I had made

IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER (and ever-changing/expanding anyway)... Gremlins Night of the Creeps The Hitcher (original) Dirty Harry The Lost Boys Fright Night (original) Class of 1984 Any of the Death Wish films JOHN CARPENTER The Evil Dead trilogy Withnail & I The Apartment The Truman Show Forrest Gump Big Point Break Road House Paris, Texas Ruby Sparks Her Frank The Limey Sex, Lies, and Videotape Hobo with a Shotgun Wait Until Dark Re-Animator Near Dark The Perks of Being a Wallflower Crazy, Stupid, Love Little Miss Sunshine Last Night (1998) Green Room Public information films. I could go on for many, many hours... Rather than do that, why don't we discuss it?? My tastes are far more varied than this list lets on, and I'm ALWAYS open to discovering something new!

Directors I love

JOHN CARPENTER Bruce Robinson Kathryn Bigelow Sofia Coppola Tom Holland Sam Raimi Martin Brest Penny Marshall Woody Allen Clint Eastwood David Lynch Werner Herzog Mark L. Lester Fred Dekker Kelly Reichardt Claire Denis Jason Eisener Jeremy Saulnier Richard Massingham

Writers I respect

Eric Red Bruce Robinson Tom Holland Hunter S. Thompson Jon Ronson Sofia Coppola Bret Easton Ellis Woody Allen Steve Coogan David Lynch & Mark Frost Melissa Mathison Jane Goldman Abi Morgan Jennifer Lee Michael Morpurgo

The best thing I own

Probably a golf shirt personally signed by Clint Eastwood.

More about me

I am a big believer in AMBIENT (music, cinema, horror, radio...)
