The movies that meant a lot to me were ones I saw when I was like 16, 17 years old, but of course “E.T.” was important to me as a kid. Bertolucci’s “1900” was a big deal. Another big one in our house was “The Blue Lagoon.”
I think the most influential movies are the ones you see at formative times in your life.
Just like you can’t choose your name, you can’t choose the movies you love. It’s something that happens to you, and all of a sudden it’s a part of you.
