What films move you?

“‘Casablanca’ and ‘La La Land.’ Both are powerful purely through artistic quality. I think filmmakers should rely on this visual subtlety. ‘La La Land’ moved me in the same way that ‘Casablanca’ did, especially in the ending. The bitter-sweet conflict between dreams and reality is the romantic’s perfect ending.”

How does film compare to other styles of art?

“Film has the potential to be the most powerful medium of art because it combines the two existing art forms, the visual and the literary.”

What films move you?

“Many of my favorite films are French or explore different cultures.  Some memorable viewings include those that play with the imagination like ‘Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain;’ ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind;’ ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon;’ and ‘Pan’s Labyrinth.’”

How does film compare to other styles of art?

“In France cinema is called le septième art, the seventh art, and is imbued with the same reverence as architecture, sculpture, painting, music, dance and poetry.”
