Great SWINTON article in this week's NY Mag. I read the page-long piece three times on the train this morning, as I knew that anything I read after this article would probably be a disappointment. Highlight:

"If one has to be banal and think of a favorite filmmaker, mine is Robert Bresson, who so often looks at people who have never seen themselves onscreen and who of course made a film about a donkey, which I think is the greatest performance ever. The donkey. That’s what one should aspire to be: the donkey.”

Well said, SWINTON, well said.

Swinton, what is banal about having a favorite filmmaker? Be charming and eccentric, but don't be snotty.
