Irish Opinion David Kitt October 22, 2008 The Irish singer-songwriter David Kitt talks Movies… With 5 studio albums under his belt, the Irish Choice Music Prize nominated musician is currently hard at work on his next album – the eagerly anticipated Slacky Tidy. Kitt took some time from his ever-hectic schedule to talk film with Movies.ie: Q: How often to you get to sit down and watch a movie? Not that often these days. I don’t have cable, actually I have no TV channels. All I’ve got is an underused video player, so I watch videos when I get a chance. Q: What was the last video you rented? That would be ‘Oh Brother, Where Art Thou’, with George Clooney. Q: What is your favourite Irish movie? Eat the peach. Q: What is your favourite movie of all time? ‘Down by law’ the 1986 movie with Tom Waits, from director Jim Jarmusch. I also like a lot of Woody Allen too. Q: What movie could you never sit through again? The one thing that pi**ed me off, was that Spike Lee film ’25th hour’. I hated every minute of it, I can’t understand why others thought it was good. I’d have no problems putting it on my ‘worst movie of all time’ list. It was crap. Q: Describe your ideal movie cast… (actor, actress) Actor is definitely Sean Penn and actress Chloe Sevigny – I think they’d work well together. Q: Favourite TV programme? I like stuff like, ‘The Fast Show’, not watching TV doesn’t help. Q: Have you ever cried during a movie? Which one? I always cry towards the end of ‘Double Life of Veronique ‘ by Kieslowski.I tend to cry at the more stupid movies too, like ‘Rocky’ and all those. Q: Who would play you in the movie adaptation of your life? I don’t know if anyone could play me but probably Sean Penn, ah no…Maybe Joaquim Phoenix or Johnny Depp, they’d both make better David Kitts.
