Book - For fun I read a lot of nonfiction -- big into film books,
anything with starlets, shocking scandal and Classical Hollywood
works great; in equal measure I dork out to history and theory
things as well. Crime and Punishment was my favorite book for a
long time. Other novels I loved were The Corrections, witty wacky
stuff like Murakami. Lolita is it's own category because it kicks
so much ass.
Movies (general in life) - If you've seen a movie recently - any
movie - it's very possible you've seen me at a movie and do not
know it. I'm a ginormous film nerd. I'm just really, really
ridiculously into film.
I love old Hollywood - anything with bright lights, leading ladies,
and the men who sought them. I'm a big fan of movies about women -
actual women, not women as men define them - and am equally into
movies where dudes blow shit up good to protect their heterosexual
world view. In the artsier realm - anything Chris Marker,
Hitchcock, Claire Denis, Bresson, Godard, Lynch, etc... you can
catch me in them real deal art spots, espresso on the tongue.
