Music, Movies, and Books

BOOKS
everything about my interests.
Above all, I'm an essays-reader (social sciences, philosophy, history, economics, politics, psychology/psychoanalysis..).
Thus, my favourite novel writers are just the classics: Omero, Dante, Hugo, Melville, Camus, Musil, Proust, Calvino, De Lillo...
I love preromantic and romantic literature, and Eastern Europe classics, from Gogol and Chekhov to Dostoevskij, Tolstoj, Bulgakov, etc.
I love also the philosophy of Enlightenment.
Finally, I like post-modern literature and art (of course we can talk a lot about what exactely post-modernism is).

MOVIES
My favourite directors:
Leone,
Aronofsky,
Lynch,
Jarmusch,
Weir,
Deren,
