More generally, in no particular order: Werner Herzog, Marcel Proust, Andreij Tarkovski plus many others. Mostly reading non fiction these days so bookwise it's kinda hard.
Movies I appreciate alternative, non mainstream. Worked in different cinemas in Amsterdam so i've seen a lot of movies.
Same holds for music. Love White Stripes, Bach, Moss, Muse, Drum n Bass, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Radiohead, Steely Dan, Talk Talk, dEUS, Phoenix....
Food is wide open, love indian, Thai, sushi, but open to everything (more or less)
