Alejandro Cabeza

Interview with Alejandro Cabeza

OA: What is your favorite film of all time?

AC: Even if it seems weird. I always come back to black and white. If I had to choose a cinematic figure who arouses in me the deepest admiration, no doubt I would pick Chaplin. I understand his critical sense of humor very well. If I were forced to choose only one of his films it would be very difficult... Perhaps Monsieur Verdoux. Overall I am a big fan of historical, thrillers and science fictions films; but I certainly enjoy any good film regardless of the genre to which it ascribes. As I noted in an interview before a genre that inspires me especially from the professional point of view is the western, by the widespread prevalence of landscapes. I also appreciate movies with a neat soundtrack; for me, music is important. Among the movies I've seen recently, and lately I don't find so many films per year that excite me, I would recommend All is lost, because of the message and Robert Redford's interpretation.

Interview with JoEllen Electra Mays

OA: What is your favourite film of all time?

Jem: Most probably it would be Stanly Kubrick’s groundbreaking film, 2001: A Space Odyssey for its use of symbolic imagery and complete lack of spoken dialogue for the first twenty minutes of the film. The film was already old when I saw it for the first time as a teenager at a midnight matinee but, its impact was overwhelming and lasting. The profound sense of isolation was certainly something I could relate to and the illustration of abstract ideas through metaphorical imagery was right in my wheelhouse.

ShawN ShawN

Interview with ShawNshawN

OA: What is your favourite film of all time?

SS: One of my favorite films of all time is The Shining by Stanley Kubrick. The original novel was written by Stephen King. What stands out in my mind is the play of isolation, increasing madness and supernatural possession. The little boy, Danny, in the movie has an imaginary friend who acts out the fear of this massive hotel that is possessed and has many mysterious murders over its long history. The hotel was built on Indian burial grounds and has the motives throughout the hotel in the carpeting and decor. The scale of the hotel and living there alone is well captured by the scenes of Danny riding his Big Wheel through the corridors of the hotel and the scene of Jack, the husband, throwing a ball against the walls of a massive room as he stirs in boredom and writer's block. Besides the slow build-up in terror, mystery and later horror, Kubrick was able to take a popular novel based on a possessed hotel to a blend of natural break-down of human nature in isolation with the illusion of a possessed hotel, which drives a fine line begging the question: was Jack delusional or possessed by the Shining? Of course, I have painted a work dedicated to The Shining, "Overlook Hotel, Maui".

Polly Tomlinson

Interview with Polly Tomlinson

OA: What is your favourite film of all time?

PT: I don't have one particular film favourite as what I watch really depends on the mood I am in and where I am. I would say Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is one of my all time favourites as is The Shawshank Redemption. On the other hand I can get sucked into 'cheesy' films on a Sunday afternoon... things like Dirty Dancing or Bodyguard.

OA: What music are you currently listening to and why?

PT: I have just got back from Glastonbury Festival yesterday as I love music. I watched 29 different bands, solo artists and DJs in 3 days.. it was a blast! And very diverse from Dolly to DJ Hannah Wants to The Whalers. I think my favourite though was James Blake, his layering of sounds is fantastic.

Jo Pilkington

Interview with Jo Pilkington

OA: What is your favourite film of all time?

JP: An easier question to answer would be "what are your top ten favourite films?” as I seem to have so many :) However, today I'm going to give my vote to a relatively recent film: The Fighter.

OA: What music are you currently listening to and why?

JP: This month I'll be mostly listening to IAMX! IAMX is an independent music project founded by the former front man of the Sneaker Pimps - Chris Corner. Also, I tend not to listen to many female singers but I can't get enough of Lana Del Rey at the moment.
