Hitchcock. And, since I still have characters left, other favorites: Chaplin; Russian Ark (amazing undertaking); Little Miss Sunshine; Waiting for Guffman; anything with Steve Buscemi, especially Miller's Crossing, and Lonesome Jim (directed) which he says portrays how his life probably would've turned out had he never gone to Hollywood; movies about journalism/mass media/politics - All the President's Men, Shattered Glass, Frost/Nixon, A Face In the Crowd; the classics, especially with Robert Mitchum as the bad guy (Night of the Hunter, original Cape Fear), or Humphrey Bogart as the good guy (Key Largo, African Queen); and other favorites include State of the Union (Tracy & Hepburn), Barefoot in the Park, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Broadcast News, American Beauty, Good Will Hunting, The Magnificent Seven (or any Steve McQueen), History of the World Part I, all disaster flicks (the more unbelievable the better), Boogie Nights, and 310 to Yuma.

I moved to Portland in May 2013. Previously I lived in Yosemite as a backcountry guide, and Ohio as a librarian/bartender. I was hoping Portland would offer an outdoorsy lifestyle plus the intellectual stimulation I've been missing lately.
