I cannot believe how many comments I read on this site that badmouth so many classics.

Favorite movie: In the Mood for Love (Directed by Wong Kar-wai)
Favorite Director: Probably also Wong Kar-wai

I first saw In the Mood For Love about 11 or 12 years ago and I instantly fell in love. I had never felt that way about a film before and was only marginally interested in the medium. After that, it was like the doors were kicked open and I needed another film experience to match that one. It still remains at the top of my personal list and nothing has quite reached the heights of that first taste, but I have since discovered many favorites. I don't love every film I see, but I do enjoy quite a lot of them. Over the last few years, I've seen everything (that I could locate) by Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Stanley Kubrick, Federico Fellini, Jean-Luc Godard, Wong Kar-Wai, John Carpenter, Francis Ford Coppola, Jean Renoir and Ingmar Bergman. Right now I am working on trying to see everything I can by David Lynch.

Quote: "He remembers those vanished years. As though looking through a dusty window pane, the past is something he could see, but not touch. And everything he sees is blurred and indistinct." - In the Mood for Love
