Having once toyed with careers in filmmaking, film history, and film preservation and restoration, I ultimately took a more conventional route. I am now just a simple fan of good films, with a simple hobby—okay, Wallet, I hear you!—an expensive, but beloved, hobby of collecting films. Other films I would love to be included in the Criterion Collection are: Adaptation.; After Hours; Caché; The Celebration (1998); Defending Your Life; Die Welle (The Wave); Downfall; Elephant; The Elephant Man; Funny Games; The Haunting; Husbands; I'm Not Scared; Last Tango in Paris; The Lives of Others; Marathon Man; The Master; Mikey and Nicky; Norma Rae; Ordinary People; Peppermint Candy; The Secret in Their Eyes; Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall...and Spring; The Station Agent; Take Shelter; The Tenant; The Thin Man; Zodiac

  • Favorite director: Too many to list here!
  • Favorite Criterion edition: John Cassavetes: Five Films
  • Most wanted in the collection: Memories of Murder
