"I love 'Husbands and Wives,' Woody Allen's movie. It's like one of my all-time favorites. I could watch it over and over again. And obviously I love 'Annie Hall,' which is a bit of a cliché to answer, but they're such masterful films, and I think as a Jewish New Yorker [laughs] who grew up in the art world, they have a really nostalgic quality for me, and they feel really authentic, and I think our films are very inspired by Woody Allen's films.
"And, gosh, I grew up really loving Hal Hartley, like 'Amateur' was a big movie for me. I was young, but it was like, music is really important to me and he had such good music and soundtracks, and they were so integral to the storytelling. They were like, bad ass, and they were indies but there were guns in them. I really dug him."
