I love movies, particularly foreign, art house and classics. Predictable Hollywood is fine to pass the time of day but it only rarely does it for me – Scorsese, Coppola and Michael Mann shine among others. I have an ever growing collection of classic dvds, but I am constantly perplexed by the fact that many of the classics – Tarkovsky and The Third Man for instance – is still not available in a widescreen dvd format. TV cropped imagery does my head in!!!
Above all I enjoy watching a work of art that looks good and connects with the emotions – a very rare combination these days. I am 49 not that it’s all that important.
