Best movies.. well, influentially, Jean Luc Godard's 60's stuff makes me want to quit photography.. David Lynch awakened my sense and appreciation of beauty, whether dark or classic.. I saw Ang Lee's The Ice Storm on tv yesterday, for some reason it reminded me how much i liked Curtis Hanson's last two films, Wonder Boys and L.A. Condfidential. American Beauty was good, blah blah anything by kubrick etc etc hi silly! bye!
