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


Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941)

I don't know if I think it's one of my favourites because it's so many other people's favourite, but it is a text book film. I love it for it's gloominess. I think the plot is not very exciting, but I love the way the camera moves in that film.
