What’s a film that changed your life? I saw both of these when I was in my pre-teens…

  • Blue Velvet by David Lynch – the first film that genuinely scared the hell out of me and haunted me for a while.
  • Dancer In The Dark by Lars Von Trier – it left me speechless.

The five guests you’d invite to your dream dinner: Barack Obama, Maya Angelou, David Lynch, Nicola Tesla, and Marie Curie. I think the mixture of politics, music, film and science could work really well.

When do you feel most happy?
