'The Ides of March' was a fairly cynical film.
'The Iliad' includes some snappy sports reporting, and writers ever since have been probing athletes for signifiers, for metaphor amped by grit under pressure.
'The Iliad' is about a war 1,200 years ago that solved nothing and achieved nothing. Most of our wars achieve very little. But whatever agenda I have gets buried in a work this great. If you're being honest, you realize that, as an artist, you're not a policy maker.
'The Imitation Game' is a celebration of Alan Turing's life and legacy, and Joan's final monologue is our eulogy. It's the thing we all wished we could have said to him.
'The Imitation Game' is a very British film.
'The Immigrant Story,' which took me about twenty-five years to write, was a very simple story, but I couldn't think of how to tell it. Then twenty years after I started it, I found this one page and realized it was going to be the story. That's the only way you get it sometimes.
'The Importance of Being Earnest' is important, but it says nothing about anything.
'The Impossible Dream' is, in my opinion, one of the greatest songs ever written. Here is a man, an old man, a very old man full of daring, bravery, courage, determination, romanticism and dreams.
'The Inbetweeners' would have been a success with a totally different cast because the scripts are good -- so while we were fortunate enough to be cast in it, we feel we still have a lot to prove.
'The Indian Runner' was easy. It had been incubating in me for eight years, and by the time I sat down to write the thing, I had all the pictures in my head.
'The Infinities' is a shortish book but densely loaded with Nabokovian slyness, gorgeous imagery, and disturbing insights into what it means to be mortal.
'The Invisibles' by Grant Morrison is my favorite series of all time.
'The Invitation' is a meditation on grief and loss carried within a suspense drama. At its core, it's about a dinner party gone horribly wrong and about the consequences of denying our pain.
'The Irish Duke' is a sequel to 'The Decadent Duke' about Lady Georgina Gordon who married the Duke of Bedford. 'The Irish Duke' tells the story of their daughter, Lady Louisa, who married James Hamilton, the powerful and wealthy Duke of Abercorn.
'The Joshua Tree' was the soundtrack of my life when we were making 'Appetite.'
'The Judy Show' would be the name of my TV show if I had one, but I don't.
'The Jungle Book.' It's one of the best animated films ever. I saw it when I was small at a cinema in Tehran.
'The Kids Are All Right' is amazing. The performances are insanely good. Julianne Moore is going to wreck you. This is the best I've ever seen her, and I've seen everything she's ever done. I like the story, and I think it's a great alternative to the big summer popcorn blockbusters.
'The Killing' has a really great combination of qualities: Even though it's very sad and deals with mourning and grief, it's still exciting. It's about real people and it doesn't shy from the painful points of life.
