Johan Sigg

I'm a young aspiring filmmaker who loves to watch and study classic films, and I love the Criterion Collection dearly. I also enjoy listening to music and reading books. I enjoy and love almost every kind of music from the old greats of Jazz, Blues, Classical, and Classic Rock to the more modern wonders of Hip-Hop, Electronic, Hardcore, Emo, Trip-Hop, Punk, and various "Posts" like Post-Rock and Post-Hardcore. With books, my great love has turned out to be Russian literature like Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, and Chekhov--but I return to many great authors (Camus, Hemingway...) and try to read as much as I can. Reading is wonderful.

  • Favorite director: Andrei Tarkovsky, Akira Kurosawa, Federico Fellini, Sergei Paradjanov (He MUST be added!), Ingmar Berman, Jean-Pierre Melville, Ozu, De Sica, BRESSON, so many more...
  • Favorite Criterion edition: Army of Shadows
  • Most wanted in the collection: Stalker, Repentance, The Color of Pomegranates
