    I've stumbled upon a series of articles in the NY Times where one of their writers sits with a movie personality and watches a movie of the celebrity's choosing. The latest celebrity is Woody Allen watching Shane. Here is a list of all of the articles. You can access them here.
    Woody Allen (August 3, 2001)
    Kevin Smith (July 20, 2001)
    Julianne Moore (June 15, 2001)
    Michael Bay (May 18, 2001)
    Harvey Weinstein (April 27, 2001)
    Wolfgang Petersen (March 30, 2001)
    Ang Lee (March 9, 2001)
    Steven Soderbergh (Feb. 16, 2001)
    Kevin Costner (Jan. 19, 2001)
    Curtis Hanson (Dec. 15, 2000)
    Ron Howard (Nov. 3, 2000)
    Janusz Kaminski (Oct. 6, 2000)
    Quentin Tarantino (Sept. 15, 2000)
    I realize this series has been going on for a while and I apologize if it's already been noted in this forum.

    It's been mentioned before, but it's worth mentioning again. It's a fascinating series. Even if you don't like the person being interviewed or the film he or she chooses, the juxtaposition often provides a different and intriguing perspective (Woody Allen on Shane? Michael Bay on West Side Story??).

    I joined the NY Times website just to read the site. They seem to get directors I would like to see do it (Woody Allen, Kevin Smith, Quentin Tarantino, Steven Soderbergh) The last obvious one is Scorsese.
    I too like the diversity of films-a Roy Rogers film for Tarantino, Allen and Shane.
    I really hope they keep this up, but I wish they'd stay away from some of the lesser names-Joel Silver, Michael Bay, and Costner.
