Let me start off with films by saying that I believe that Manhattan
is far superior to Annie Hall (it's much more complex), Me and You
and Everyone We Know is probably my favorite film of all time (I
love films that satire our modern forms of communication and really
make you think. And, I love Miranda July...), Citizen Kane is in my
opinion the greatest film of all time, The Godfather, The Third
Man, The Squid and The Whale, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
Mind, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Antichrist, Breaking the Waves, Black
Swan and anything by Ingmar Bergman or David Lynch (probably my
favorite Director). Oh, fuck the social network.

On Music: As John Cassavetes said, "I like all music. It makes you
feel like living. Silence is death."
