Movies: Favorites are hard to pick because I've seen so many. I
love Film Noir both of the classic period like Out of the Past,
Sunset BLVD, The Setup and Kiss of Death and neo noirs like LA
Confidential, Chinatown, Memento and Le Samouai. I like Kubrick,
Gilliam and Jeunet. Christopher Nolan and Alfonso Cuarón are my two
favorite working directors.
