Movies Made Me

Movies Made Me

Virtually every one of us has had a film experience that altered us in some way, that gave us a passion, a fear, a way of looking at the world. I task my guests with talking about the five movies that have made them, well, them! We'll explore how each movie changed them, while also looking at three other influences, from the broad spectrum of their experience, that made them who they are today.
