What are your favourite shots? (Style and just in general)
I’m not really into cinematography since I’m not that smart but I know what I like aesthetically. I love faceless shots and hand shots. Just intricate little details, really. My favourite shots of all time are definitely the body being wrapped in the Union Jack in LNotP, the final scene of Il portiere di notte on the bridge, and one of the last shots in Cabaret where the emcee’s face is reflected into the glass, and the nazi patrons are revealed to be sitting in the club. The most haunting is easily in The Cook…. When they’re stood in front of the cooked dead body. Red in the background, shot focused on… well, yknow how the scene goes

did you prefer a field in England or in the earth? I’ve never seen either and don’t know which one to watch first
imo in the earth is less confusing and has sort of more of a plot? but then again I saw it in the cinema so it had that edge over AFiE. Saying that I really loved AFiE, it’s just in the earth is more gory and feels more like a traditional horror film with elements of slasher films mixed in

the intricate rituals of a wizard making you lose your mind in a tent, feeding you alcohol/runes/hallucinogenics, making you a homunculus, and using you as a human dowsing rod on the end of a rope

hurry up and wait, to have and to hold and last gasp
hurry up and wait: do you tend to jump to conclusions or do prefer to critically assess situations before acting?
I’m an absolute weapon when it comes to this because I prefer the second but I am so impatient that sometimes I just end up doing the first. It’s a double edged sword because for so many times in the last year I’ve been caught out by the first, but then eventually proved right. I’m trying the second more every day though.
to have and to hold: what’s your biggest fear?
oooft if we’re going deep hours it’s definitely dying before I’ve had the chance to do everything I want, or losing people I care about (which is an unfortunate reality that seems to be happening more frequently as you get older). On a surface level it’s just snakes. I have a completely irrational but insanely intense phobia of them, so much so that I can’t see pictures of videos of them.
last gasp: do you have a favourite piece of celebrity memorobilia?
I’m not really one for celebrity memorabilia and collections and things! I have a doctor who poster from the 80s of Colin Baker as owned by him, and I suppose if it counts I’m big on first editions of books, signed by authors and things. I have a lot of first edition Wodehouse.

deadline n wuthering heist
deadline: do you believe in ghosts?
ehhhh, I don’t know. I’ve definitely had some weird experiences but I just think it’s the brain playing tricks. There’s so much we don’t understand but I find some things impossible. If you were to ask me after a few pints I’d probably say yes though, so there’s that. I change my mind every day.
wuthering heist: which role would you play in a heist movie?
I like to think I’d be the mastermind of the entire operation, but in reality I’d be the timid one (with a minor role - a driver?) that gets 7 minutes of screen time before they’re inevitably made an example of for trying to escape

zanzibar, empty orchestra and private view
empty orchestra: what’s your go-to karaoke song?
Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen or Sweet Caroline
private view: what’s your worst habit?
Compulsively checking social media and my phone, as well as deliberately provoking my anxiety and jumping the gun a bit and being short with people (impatience, really)

the trial of elizabeth gadge and once removed !
the trial of elizabeth gadge: why would someone accuse you of being a witch?
Bewitching the village with my slow moving tapestries of Reeson Shiresmith. Also just being on good terms with the Devil, I guess.
once removed: do you prefer traditional story-telling structures or ones that challenge your perceptions?
Interesting. I like the predictable and the traditional structure - it’s why I like old movies so much (Astaire & Rogers, anyone?) but I do like to be challenged, as long as it’s not patronising. I think it’s good to not have too much of one thing. It’s nice to come out of a film and feel like you’ve been asked to think differently
