I love film, but I lack the patience and attention to give it the time I think it deserves. My childhood favorite films were almost all sf or war movies; as my current love for directors such as Tarkovsky and Kurosawa shows, these days I prefer more space and ambiguity in my movies. I would love to see The Criterion Collection pick up some of Peter Watkins's movies, especially The Gladiators and The Voyage, but I think it would probably cause a fissure in reality for him to get so much mainstream attention.
