On a recent visit to London the performance artist, director and musician took time out to talk about her 13 favourite films with Mat Colegate


On The Waterfront (Elia Kazan, 1954)

I love broody stuff and fights and this has one of the best fights ever, as well as all the classic lines that you hear in all different types of conversations. And also because they live on the waterfront, and I've lived along the waterfront long enough to see it change a huge amount. So this film feels like a historical work for me.
