April Showers...

THE PIANO
Hunter is so expressive, like a firework (intended) exploding again and again.
❞ - Henry

THELMA & LOUISE
I took a "fluff" class senior year of high school called Mass Media, and we were allowed to do a project on anything we wanted. My friend Meaghan and I decided to do our project on Brad Pitt,..I had never seen "Thelma & Louise" and found myself obsessed with it. I think I watched it five times by the time my senior year was over. ❞ -Jakey

Reader: Christian in Barcelona

We're getting to know The Film Experience readership. Today we're talking to "Peggy Sue" who you know from the comments. Though he is more likely to answer to "Christian" in person ;)

Hi, Christian. Let's start at the very beginning. Your first movie memory?

CHRISTIAN: Mary Poppins' cough syrup. I'll explain. As a kid I was always sick, so I vividly remember being amazed by her changing colors medicine. Mine was brownish and disgusting so I thought the whole flying thing was OK, but the syrup was utterly amazing!

What is your relationship to Pedro Almodóvar and his muses?

CHRISTIAN: Total devotion. My favorites are Carmen Maura, Verónica Forqué and Chus Lampreave.

Your three favorite actresses in general?

Three? Man, you're tough! I'll stick to the living ones: Kathleen Turner, Michelle Pfeiffer, Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon, and Meryl. Plus almost every single British actress out there and half of the Argentinians. I'll also say that I'll watch anything with Bates, Bening, Channing, Hunter, Lange, McDormand and Moore in it.

That is way more than three. When did you start reading TFE?

When you posted what I call "The Turner" and can be described as Kathleen's reaction shot at the Oscars spiced up with your witty comments!

The tragedy of March 30th, 1987 illustrated

I felt vindicated after years of reading all over the Internet that Sigourney Weaver was robbed (Shut up readers! I love Susan, I'm not a hater).

How often do you go to the movies?

Usually one or two on Fridays and Sundays. During the week I'm more devoted to my two hundred favorite TV-Shows.

How do you pick what you'll see?

I usually pay attention to critics/awards buzz. That includes you and Nick Davis. I saw A Separation months before the Oscar madness just because I read your review. Big draws? If someone sings something I'll probably go see it and if they're all British and wear corsets and laces I'll be there too.

I AM APPALLED BY THE LACK OF OSCAR QUESTIONS.

Oops sorry. Take one Oscar away / Give it to someone else.

Oh! You just opened Pandora's box, here I go: Matlin/Turner, Foster/Close, Tandy/Pfeiffer, Hunt/Dench, Paltrow/Montenegro, Swank/Staunton, Witherspoon/Huffman, Bullock/Mulligan, Streep/Davis...

I said one!

Yes, murder was invented even before man began to think. Now of course man has become known as the thinking animal."

Can you guess the movie?
