The Guardian newspaper has a neat little feature where they ask people a series of questions about their movie watching lives and illustrate it with stills from the films. I thought I’d try it on meself……
What’s the film you’ve seen most often? The Searchers, I’m part of the messianic cult that can go on for ages about this without drawing a breath…..
What scared you at the movies? Behind you in THE RED COAT!!!!!! Spoiler if you haven’t seen Don’t Look Now…..
What excites you? Always, Forever, Eternally……Claudia…..
What Angers You?
Straw Dogs…… really Peckinpah? This is just ugly……..What makes you laugh???
Monty Python, the Marx Bothers, Bringing Up Baby, Some Like It Hot, but most of all Preston Sturges.
What makes you cry?
I think I got dust in my eye there……not the butterfly, this image from All Quiet On The Western Front
What’s the best landscape you’ve seen on film?
Monument Valley with a line of Indians on the horizon just thrills me….
What movie star do you look like? I get Chris Walken a lot, but I just don’t see it….I think it’s the hair and maybe the attitude….amused cynicism.
Who would you like to look like? Alain Delon of course……
……or maybe Mitch…..
If you were a baddie who would you be? Kirk Douglas in Out of the Past surprising Mitchum in his hotel door with the classic “I hate surprises myself, you wanna shut the door and just forget it?”……
……or Conrad Veidt as Major Strasser in Casablanca
The best film I’ve never seen?
I can’t believe I still haven’t seen Yojimbo…..
