I'm listening to Jacques Brel but I love Scott Walker.
Also - Tom Waits, The Tiger Lillies, Neil Young, Ennio Morricone,
Kate Bush, that type of thing. Jazz, Folk & Classical and
something from a musical.
Film, I love many films, here's a list with no order - The
Innocents, Deep Red, The Wicker Man, North By Northwest, The Spy
Who Loved Me, Vertigo, My Fair Lady, Blade Runner, Studio Ghibli
output, The Long Good Friday, Brazil, Get Carter, Performance, Blow
Up, 2001 and too many more to list. Though I have favourites I'll
watch anything of merit. And if you're Terry Gilliam in a wig I'll
I particularly enjoy horror and comedy which is why I'd say The
League Of Gentlemen is probably my favourite televisual
Reading - very important to me but I've struggled recently to find
the time, I think I'm half way through three right now. Some
favourites - ghost stories, Dostoyevsky, Goethe, Zola.
Other television - I, so far, have never tired of watching Jon
Pertwee as the Doctor and Roger Moore is the best actor in the
world in The Persuaders. Gerry Anderson's optimistic, naive,
industrial space age future (Captain Scarlet, UFO, Space1999) does
it for me while I worship the Monty Python lot and a great deal of
their solo projects.
I make a point of trying to discover lesser know and rare archive
film and television. I find that British and European cinema
suffers from massive neglect especially relative to the vast
American film machine. Therefore many trips to the BFI.
