'Taxidermia' - György Pálfi

'Requiem' - Bernd Lange
'Odishon' & pretty much all by Miike Takashi
'Funny Games' both versions - Haneke
'Sprpski Film' - Srdjan Spasojevic
'Martyrs' - Pascal Laugier
Heavy & often controversial films, made with passion. But I also have a soft spot for movies that bring back childhood memories like E.T., Super 8, Back to the Future etc.
In other words, cinema that is often visceral, or magical. Or downright hilarious (huge Sasha Byron Cohen fan over here!)
Food: I'm a true foodie. My favorite food, guilty pleasure and addiction is: good sushi. You can wake me up in the middle of the night for a plate of this delicious treat. I love to cook, and secretly watch a lot of cooking shows (don't tell anyone!)
Music: don't even get me started. I play in a band as a lead guitarist/songwriter. I also do all lyrics and artwork and photography. Music is my greatest passion of all. We're currently planning dates for 2013. We've played over a 100 shows in a few countries. Playing abroad is so much fun! That's our main priority for the moment.
While we play extreme, sometimes (modern) classical influenced death/black metal, I listen to a vast amount of genres. From jazz to classical, from elektro to new wave, from dubstep to post rock, I'll listen to it. As long as it's played with a true passion, integrity & love there's a big chance I'll listen to it.
