I like films. Films are a place one can go to feel. Just when the edges of things
seem to be shutting down all around, I can be sure that a few hours spent with
a good movie will split me wide open like an egg. I might be particular about the
films I prefer to watch, but time and its relative spending is important to me.
Once in awwhile I need something totally brainless and silly to allow my mind
some breathing space, but those times are few and far between. I want to be
showered in imagery and symbol, I want to be flooded withthe sort of films that
linger and haunt. I like artsy films, okay? Here are some of my favourites.


"Forgive me, Majesty. I am a
vulgar man! But I assure you, my music is not."

American Beauty

"Look at me. Jerking off in
the shower. This will be the highlight of my day."


Breakfast at Tiffany's

"We're alike, me and cat. A
couple of poor nameless slobs."

The Breakfast Club

"Chicks cannot hold their smoke, that's what it is."

Dangerous Liaisons

"You'll find the shame is like the pain, you only feel it once. "

Ever After

"You cannot leave everything to Fate, boy. She's got a lot to do. Sometimes you must give her a hand."

Far Away, So Close!

Fight Club

"You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everything else."

House of Yes

"If people are going to start telling the truth around here, I'm going to bed."

Human Traffic

"What's your name? What have
you had? Reach for the lasers.
Safe as fuck."

Immortal Beloved

It is the power of music to carry
one directly into the mental
state of the composer.


"I ask for so little. Just fear me,
love me, do as I say and I will be your slave."

Michael Collins

"We wanna be free, free to do
what we wanna do. And we
wanna get loaded, and we wanna have a good time.

Moulin Rouge

"Truth. Beauty. Freedom, Love."

The Mummy

"Rescue the damsel in distress,
kill the bad guy, save the world."

Nil By Mouth

"my blues, if you like, about
what was outside my window. The film is very much based on my experiences and impressions of growing up and living in London"

Run Lola Run

Saving Private Ryan

" if going to Reméal, and finding him so he can go home, if that earns me the right to get back to my wife, well then... then that's my mission. "


"What sick ridiculous puppets
we are, and what gross little stage we dance on, what fun we have dancing and fucking, not a care in the world, not knowing that we are nothing . We are not what was intended."

Sleepy Hollow

"Truth is appearance, but appearance isn't always truth."

This is Spinal Tap!

"I, for one, do not think the
problem was that the band was down. I think that the problem may have been that there was a Stonehenge monument on the
stage that was in danger of being crushed by a dwarf."

Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas

"What's this? There's children throwing snowballs instead of throwing heads."

The Usual Suspects

"Keaton once said, "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser Soze."

Velvet Goldmine

"The world has changed because you are made of ivory and gold. The curves of your lips rewrite history."


Wings of Desire

"To smoke, and have coffee-and if you do it together, it's fantastic. "
