Reading and Watching List

MW here —

What follows (as I have been asked this question a lot over the last barrage of interviews) is what I have been reading and watching.  It got me thinking a bit about how my choices towards films and books has been leaning as of late.  Since much of what I watch and read now is many times influenced by my own filmmaking tendencies,  over the next year (2013-2014) I’ll put it all up here, (the films in CAPS and the books in CAPS/ITALICS) and see where it goes.
