Favorite Films"I started getting excited about movies, it was foreign films. La Strada for instance, and Eight And a Half. Persona, Hour Of The Wolf, all of Jacques Tati's films. I also liked Sunset Boulevard and Hitchcock, particularly Vertigo and Rear Window."
"Myself, I love 8 1/2. My take on what Fellini was trying to do there may be different from other people's."
"Rear Window is one of my favorite movies. I love Rear Window because it got such a mood, and even though I know exactly what happens next I enjoy to be in that room and feel that time. Itīs almost like I could smell it."
"Almost every film I like is black and white: Sunset Boulevard, Lolita, Citizen Kane, 8 1/2. The only exception is Mon Oncle by Jacques Tati: I find the colors in that movie really extraordinary."
"Kubrick is the coolest, and Marty [Martin Scorsese] is right next door."
"I also like Stanley Kubrick. I think right now he's about the coolest, I guess. The Shining really grew on me. I never miss it when it's on cable. His best film for me, though, is Lolita. I'm absolutely captivated by it. Also, I like him because he likes Eraserhead. He said at one time that it was his favorite film."
"I have a profound admiration for Fellini. I met him lately and he's just fantastic. I feel very close to him even though he's very Italian. But his films could have been made in every country. When I say, I feel close to him, then also because we're both born on January 20th."
