Q: Which film do you love that might surprise people?
JS: I don’t know if this will come as a surprise to anyone but would have to say Blissfully Yours by Apichatpong Weerasethakul. I love the characteristically oblique and subtle manner of the film. The pacing of the film is exquisite, melancholy and beautiful long takes of the couple is like reading a poem.
Q: If you could pair up any two actors/actresses, living or dead, which two would it be & what kind of film?
JS: Moon So-Ri and John Malkovich in a drama
Q: Which film has had the biggest impact on you personally, and why?
JS: Amour, everything about it from set design, sound fx, music, cinematography, acting, to the props. The film is an absolute masterpiece.
Q: If you could have one prop from any film what would it be?
JS: The moped in Olivier Assayas Personal Shopper
Q: Is there any subject matter which you would not make a film about?
JS: I wouldn’t do a subject matter on Christianity also I wouldn’t be good at making horror films. Although there are some good horror films. If it’s not done tastefully you could essentially be creating black magic.
