Os filmes em DVD favoritos de DD.
The Greatest Guy Movies Ever By David Duchovny

[table of contents]:
Greatest Guy Movies Ever
You'll find them in actor-director David Duchovny's DVD player.

from the Critics Choice Awards; all the other pics are stills

Director's Cut
David Duchovny's DVD Picks

Spare him the alien-abduction jokes: The former star of THE X-FILES
has been reinventing himself as a writer-director. With his first film,
HOUSE OF D, in theatres in mid-April, David Duchovny returns to an
era and a locale -- 1973, Greenwich Village -- that are familiar turf.
The sentimental film is told from the perspective of an artist
living in Paris who looks back at events that transformed him
from a 13-year-old mensch into an emotionally closed expatriate.
Of the similarities between protagonist Tom Warshaw and himself,
the 44-year-old filmmaker says, "I worked at a local meat market.
I was a scholarship student at a private school, and I was pretty much
raised by my mother." Needless to say, he's not a guy you'll catch
renting PORKY'S.

ELEPHANT ($20, HBO Video) "Of all the Columbine-inspired films,
ELEPHANT is a cut above the rest because it is so deceptively
simple in the filmmaking. Director Gus Van Sant's story of a
high-school massacre has the confidence to take its time. It's
so rare when any kind of movie comes out these days that doesn't
have to impress or hook you in the first 3 minutes. There is
just this dread that keeps growing over the course of the movie."

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS ($30, Universal Studios) "My buddy Peter
Berg chose a documentary style to tell this story about football in
Odessa, Texas, and that style gets you invested in the characters
as if they were real people. I think Billy Bob Thornton gives a
great performance as coach Gary Gaines -- very funny, knowing,
and wise. The movie is a nonstop ride from beginning to end,
yet it's comprehensible; it's not like a music video."

DONNIE DARKO ($27, Twentieth Century Fox) "This movie,
about a high-school kid (Jake Gyllenhaal) and the demonic rabbit
that appears only to him, is creepy and original in its imagery.
That rabbit is unsettling. I had to see this film twice to figure
out the truth of it. Gyllenhaal was a find, and writer-director
Richard Kelly is really talented. This was his first feature film;
I can't wait for him to make another one."

I HUCKABEES ($28, Twentieth Century Fox) "It's so
hard to make a movie about ideas, but that's what David O. Russell
(THREE KINGS) has done with this story about a guy named Albert
(Jason Schwartzman) who hires existential detectives (Dustin
Hoffman and Lily Tomlin). It kind of hurts your head to watch,
but I appreciate that. I'm just sorry Isabelle Huppert had to
have doggie-style sex in the mud."

HOOSIERS ($15, MGM Home Entertainment) "Like BRIAN'S SONG
for basketball lovers, this is a perfect sports film. Every note is right,
and they got the basketball right, too. Sure, it's '50s basketball
(which is a little slower and easier to depict), but I hate sports films
where they get the sports wrong. Even MILLION DOLLAR BABY, which
everyone loves, got the sports wrong. The boxing doesn't look like boxing."

RESTAURANTE FAVORITO EM NY.
NY Post

MY FAVORITE PLACE
by Neil Rosen
David Duchovny
Gobo
401 Sixth Ave. at W. Eighth Street
212 255-3902
"Eu gosto de comer comida saudável. Algumas coisas feitas com carne podem matar voce. Então eu amo o fato de que este restaurante tem um menu estritamente vegetariano. O prato que eu mais gosto é a sopa de macarrão com curry. as sobremesas são realmente saborosas".

("I like to eat healthy food. That meat stuff can kill you," says the X Files star. "So I love the fact that this restaurant has a strict vegetarian menu. The dish I enjoy best is their curry noodle soup. The desserts are really tasty.")


Música preferida de Elvis Presley:
Revista People de maio/2005
Perguntaram a varias personalidades qual seria a música preferida cantada por Elvis Presley. A de David Duchovny foi
Burning Love.

This is from a 1997 TV Guide BBS Chat with David:

What is your favorite X-Files episode and why? -- Kim Huff

"Small Potatoes" is one of my favorites, definitely, because of just the acting challenge, getting to play Mulder as Darin Morgan's character. That was a wonderful chance to do some subtle but funny acting. There are episodes that I think are more exciting in terms of thrills, classic X-Files shows. There were two last year that took place in Russia that I thought were real exciting and fun -- I like it when we make it look like a movie, when people say, "Oh my God, I can't believe this is a television show." Those are fun. As far as acting goes, there was a show called "One Breath" in the second season that I was proud of as an actor. I like "Duane Barry" a lot.



From Entertainment Weekly 2002:


DUCHOVNY "Ice" [episode 7, in which the agents are stranded at an arctic outpost fighting a killer virus] was important, and probably my favorite from season 1. It was the first time the characters went in another direction. Morgan and Wong wrote a really fun, scary script.



From Entertainment Weekly 1996


David Duchovny's Top 3 Episodes:
1. Ice
2. Duane Barry
3. Ascension



From USA Weekend 2000

Anderson: Any thoughts on the end of the show?

Duchovny: We'll do another movie, at least, so I don't think it'll actually end. There'll be an ending image, but by the sheer fact that it's a self-conscious ending image, I think it'll be overloaded and won't work. My favorite image of the show's seven years is the end of the black-and-white episode, where they had us slow-motion dancing. However it ends, to me, that's my favorite.


_Well, we know that David does not eat meat. Or maybe it's red meat. Not sure about the Lobster. Me i don't eat either except for meat sauce once in awhile
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


In that AMERICAN WAY article, DD praised the tuna
sashimi, oysters, and salmon to be found in Vancouver
restaurants, so he does eat fish & seafood.

Rereading that article, I notice he described one of his
favourite restaurants (Il Giardino di Umberto) as being
"authentically Italian" -- so if he cares about his Italian
restaurants being "authentic", that would seem to weigh
against an Olive Garden sighting.

Aha! Their sharing Melanie Greene as a manager/friend
may explain how DD apparently knows Paul Bettany
(& wife Jennifer Connelly) well enough to dine with
them in New York last fall ...

www.gawker.com/news/culture/...sses-026295.php

[posted 11-24-04]:

David Duchovny, Paul Bettany, Jennifer Connelly, and
Geoffrey Rush were all dining at SoHo House Saturday
night (I think together in a private room). David never left
the private room that I saw, but Rush and Bettany both came
into the smoking/game room by the bar. When Bettany came
in, he looked around and then, making a pouty face said,
"Nobody's smoking in here. I'm not going to smoke in here."
Although, in fact, there were a lot of people smoking.
He later overcame his shyness and did smoke in the smoking
room. Saw Connelly wandering about looking exquisite but,
yes, yes, much smaller in real life.

Healing the Shame That Binds You
By: John E. Bradshaw
Price: $7.96
Phile Connection: David mentions this book in his Movieline Article entitled "An Actor and a Poet". The reference is as follows:
Q: Have you ever read any self-help books?
A: Oh yeah. One that I read that helped my self was called Healing the Shame That Binds You. Terrible title. It's by John Bradshaw, who's a famous family dynamics guru.
Q: How long ago did you read it?
A: Ten or twelve years ago. It was good for me.
Q: What were you ashamed of!
A: Everything. Of being a failure. Sex. Money. Anybody knowing my feelings. I was just very afraid to have anybody know what I really wanted or who I was.
The same Movieline article contains David's published poem, Cliche Juice.

Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror : Poems
By: John Ashbery
Price: $11.96
Phile Connection: This is a book of poems DD mentioned in an interview with Movieline back in 1997: Hiding in Plain Site, citing the title poem as one of his alltime favorites. Amy adds, this is from one of my favorite DD articles, the photogrpahs are amazing, just look at this image inspired by the poem in question. "Jesus, this is one of my favorite poems. How did she (the interviewer's editor) know? It's called 'Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror' by John Ashbery. It's about a man who's painting his self-portrait, but he's looking into a mirrored ball, and the closer he gets to it, the further away his image seems to be going. For me, that would be the acting style that I'm trying to do. I'm trying to protect what I advertise. That's my stance on any kind of self-expression. That's as far as I need to go." He pauses, then says, "You could look at this poem for weeks, just weeks." Thanks Sif for this recommendation.

The Beauty Myth : How Images of Beauty Are Used Against Women
By: Naomi Wolf
Price: $11.16
Phile connection: David went to graduate school with Naomi Wolf, which I have to add awed me. From David's interview in Playboy (that just struck me as ironic). "In our graduate Romantic Poetry class with Harold Bloom, there was a precocious undergraduate, Naomi Wolf, who has since become known as a feminist writer. She was the only one who would talk. Because she didn't care, she didn't have anything to lose. Bloom was always bemoaning something in his fitting, sad voice, asking about what something would be like, and we'd all be silent, afraid to be exposed. But Naomi Wolf would raise her hand and respond, "It would be a world without adjectives." And he'd say, "Exactly, my dear." And I was like, I'm in the wrong place. Not only did I not get the answer, I didn't even understand the question. A world without adjectives. I just don't get it. Though that would be a good name for a book, wouldn't it?" You can read the whole interview .

Adventures of Don Quixote
By: Miguel De Cervantes
Price: $7.16
Phile Connection: When asked in the article "Closing The X-Files" in Focus Magazine, Which historical character does he most identify with?, his response was, "Don Quixote, or in his case maybe it should have been Don Quicksand! Or maybe Sherlock Holmes." You can Read the entire interview here

The Sportswriter
By: Richard Ford
Price: $9.60
Phile Connection: David mentions that this is the last book he remembers reading in the article "Closing The X-Files" in Focus Magazine: Magazine: We've talked about music. What about literature what was the last book you read?
David: Oh, that's a sad question - that's really sad. I don't even know I think it was The Sportswriter by Richard Ford, but I'm not sure if I even finished it. I haven't been reading much at all recently - my mum will be disappointed. But did you know that reading is like the TV of the l5th century? It's respectable now, but when it first came out they said it would kill young minds [grins] with those fantasies and stories of faraway places -just like they are saying now that computers are like that. We say reading is good for you but I'm not so sure [smiles]. We're probably the last generation that will read! You can Read the entire interview here

Murphy
By: Samuel Beckett
Price: $9.60
Phile Connection:As Mentioned in an article from US Magazine entitled "David in Love", David's 1982 Princeton senior thesis was "The Schizophrenic Critique of Pure Reason in Beckett's Early Novels.":
Here is a random passage: In Murphy's theology, undifferentiated chaos confronts God with its unnameable yawn. Like a sculptor with flawed stone, God does his best with what he is given and puns on the word to create the world. It is not a great pun and certainly not one of Murphy's favorites. The only evidence of theophany appears as the verbal transformation of the lowly neurotic into the holy psychotic schizophrenic. There will be a right time to mention the thesis. But not yet.
You are read the entire David in Love interview.. You can look for more of Beckett's works at Amazon.com. I own Waiting for Godot, and I enjoyed it.

The Power of Myth
By: Joseph Campbell, Bill Moyers (Contributor), Betty Sue Flowers (Editor)
Price: $10.36
Phile Connection: From David Duchovny's X-Factor in Vanity Fair Magazine:

"As the show took off, Duchovny helped imbue what might have been a mere sci-fi drama with what he refers to, a bit self consciously, as its mythology--a creative contribution that reportedly earns him a higher-than-scale piece of syndication revenues, which seem likely to reach $1.5 million per episode. A seminal influence was--and still is Joseph Campbell. "It isn't Campbell specifically, but Campbell is a structural anthropologist--he's like Levi-Strauss, boiling down all stories into archetypes," Duchovny says. "I wanted Mulder to go through an archetypal journey: starting from a position of innocence, which is one of trusting his father--the elders, in mythology--being a good boy and a good son, to being an outcast, feeling like his father is Darth Vader, then going to almost as innocent a phase, in which he believes that everyone's a liar, and everyone's out to get him, then maturing to a kind of enlightened cynicism."

Slowness
By: Milan Kundera, Linda Asher (Translator)
Price: $10.00
Phile Connection: From David Duchovny's X-Factor in Vanity Fair Magazine:

The radio squawks: "David in five." A change of clothes is needed, so Duchovny strips down in his trailer bedroom. He favors dusty-rose Jockey shorts--a factoid for the fans who swooned at the sight of him, in one episode, in a tight red Speedo bathing suit, and crowded various David Duchovny Web sites with feverish speculation about what might lie underneath. It's strange to be a sex symbol; and Duchovny's wariness of it seems genuine. In the recent Milan Kundera novel Slowness, Duchovny recalls, "there was a question one of the characters posed: 'Who would want to drag the pots and pans of celebrity behind him?' I feel that way when I walk down the street, like I've got these pots and pans."



Interpretation of Dreams
By: Sigmund Freud, James Strachey (Editor)
Price: $4.79
Phile connection: In the April 2000 Movieline, David had the following Q/A:
Question: What about Time choosing Einstein as Person of the Century?
David: That seems like such an odd idea, the best or most influential person. Einstein may have found out more truths, but Freud's probably the most influential in how we think now.

The Annotated Milton : Complete English Poems With Annotations Lexical, Syntactic, Prosodic, and Referential
By: John Milton, Raffel Burton (Editor), Burton Raffel (Editor)
Price: $5.56
Phile connection: In the April 2000 Movieline, David had the following Q/A:
Question: Saul Bellow said: "love has become a consumerist phenomenon because we judge people as we judge commodities -- we can do better, we can get another one, we can always replace what's lost."
David: We live in a world where in the 10 hours that I've been up today I've probably had access to more information than John Milton had in his entire life. I don't think that's a good thing. You see so much. Nothing is local, everything is global. I have access to all these lifestyles, all these people's experiences, all these cars, all these women, all these grass-is-greeners. And it f%$^ with the human mind.

Jim Carrey Movies
Phile connection: In the April 2000 Movieline, David had the following Q/A:
Question: What did you think of GQ's describing you as being as murky as swamp water, the anti-Carrey?
David:Murky as swamp water is fine. I try not to be that clear. I'll take that one. The anti-Carrey thing I didn't quite buy. I don't think Jim Carrey is clear. I would think Tom Cruise is clear. Even Brad Pitt is more clear than Carrey. Carrey seems to me a very difficult guy to read. I wouldn't set him up as the paradigm of simplicity or clarity.

Tom Cruise Movies
Phile connection: In the April 2000 Movieline, David had the following Q/A:
Question: What did you think of GQ's describing you as being as murky as swamp water, the anti-Carrey?

The Catcher in the Rye
By:Jerome David Salinger
Price: $17.50
Phile connection: In the April 2000 Movieline, David had the following Q/A:
Question:You've compared yourself to Holden Caulfield: hating hypocrisy and pretension. Where do you most see that?
David:There's a lot of it everywhere. I see it in people who all of a sudden start having English accents after they get an award. It's a young feeling to think that the world should be without pretension. It's like a 14-year-old saying, "Why can't you just tell the truth?" Mulder is like that -- a guy who wants everybody to tell the truth, which as you get older you see is not the way the world works.

Bruce Springsteen - Greatest Hits
Price: $13.99
Phile connection: In the April 2000 Movieline, David had the following Q/A:
Question: What greater performance than that could you have seen?
David:When I was 17 I saw Springsteen in Jersey. That meant a lot to me.

Moonstruck (1987)
Starring: Cher, Nicolas Cage, et al.
Price: $13.99
Phile connection: In the April 2000 Movieline, David had the following Q/A:
Question: Quiet, romantic pictures don't have an easy time in today's market. What are your expectations?
David: There's always space for a good romantic movie. I've seen the film and the experience was very much like when I saw Moonstruck. I wasn't an actor then, but I remember thinking, this is fun, I don't want it to end, I like this world. When I knew Return to Me was about to end I felt, Oh, too bad, I enjoyed being diverted into this world for two hours. Tea felt the same way.
You can read the entire interview Here. Moonstruck is also available on DVD



The Complete Stories
By: Franz Kafka, Nahum Norbert Glatzer, John Updike
Price: $12.00
Phile connection: In the April 2000 Movieline, David had the following Q/A:
Question: Harold Bloom noted in The Western Canon that Kafka shared his unbelief in God with Freud, Woolf, Joyce, Beckett, Proust, Borges and Neruda. Do you believe in God?
David: I like that company. Who's on the pro-God side? (Laughs) I'm not sure that those people didn't believe in God. God as the white-haired man with the long beard who doesn't believe in birth control and wants to send you to hell because you curse, I'm not sure I believe in that anal-compulsive God. But Beckett tells a joke in one of his novels that sums up his idea of God, which is good for me: this guy goes to a tailor for a suit and the tailor measures him and says to come back in a week. The guy returns and the tailor says he needs more time. The guy comes back in another week, it's still not ready, and the tailor tells him to come back in three days. Guy comes back in three days. "Can you come back on Monday?" He comes back and the tailor says again it's not ready. The guy finally explodes and says, "What the hell are you doing? It took God only six days to create the world." And the tailor says, "And look what a job he did." I like to think of it that way.

Oliver Stone Movies
Phile connection: In the April 2000 Movieline, David had the following Q/A:
Q: You were in negotiations to be in Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday. he wanted you for the assistant doctor's role, which Matthew Modine eventually played, and you wanted the Dennis Quaid part. But Stone said you didn't have a thick enough neck to play a quarterback.
A: (Laughs) He said that, it's true.
Q: What do you think of the film?
A: Oliver Stone is always two steps ahead as a filmmaker. This was football as war, it was like watching Platoon with a ball. Very visceral. Playing a song like DMX's "My Niggas" over black guys getting ready to play football was a very courageous shot.

Terms of Endearment (1983)
Starring: Shirley MacLaine, Debra Winger, et al.
Price: $9.95
Phile connection: David hosted is quoted in the The Chicago Sun Times aritlce about which movies make men cry:
David Duchovny: "I hate to admit this, but I do love `Terms of Endearment.' I think this is still a manly thing, because who knew Debra Winger was going to get so sick? It kills me when Shirley [MacLaine] is demanding those pills in the hospital. I'm weeping." Pause. "Can I change my answer to `The Terminator'? It makes me sound more like a guy." [Amy note: as if we questioned his "guyness"--that's one of the things we like most about him]



The Terminator (1984)

It kills me when Shirley [MacLaine] is demanding those pills in the hospital. I'm weeping." Pause. "Can I change my answer to `The Terminator'? It makes me sound more like a guy."

Sportswriter
By: Richard Ford
Price: $25.00
Phile connection: David is quoted in the 'Focus' 1998 when asked the last book he read:
David Duchovny: "...it was The Sportswriter by Richard Ford, but I'm not sure if I even finished it. I haven't been reading much at all recently - my mum will be disappointed. But did you know that reading is like the TV of the 15th century? It's respectable now, but when it first came out they said it would kill young minds [grins] with those fantasies and stories of faraway places - just like they are saying now that computers are like that. We say reading is good for you but I'm not so sure [smiles]. We're probably the last generation that will read!"

Phile connection: David on choosing Jesse L. Martin for Unnatural:
David Duchovny: "Well, I'd seen Jesse in the musical Rent a few years ago and he was great. Then I saw him on Ally McBeal and he was great on that, and he just had the right feel. The other major parts were all recurring characters, so I only really cast Jesse."



The Perfect Storm : A True Story of Men Against the Sea
By: Sebastian Junger
Price: $3.49
David from 1997 discussing what books he's recently read:
Let's see... I just read A Perfect Storm, which is an account of a fishing boat that sank in the Northeast a few years back. It's kind of a nonfiction, fictional account of that, and I'm reading it because my wife gave it to me and it was a real page-turner. I'm a drive-by reader: I see it, I pick it up, I start reading and if it catches me in five pages, I read it. But I rarely go out anymore and buy a book or go to the library and take a book out. People used to send me more books -- either they used to send me more, or the people who work with me used to give more to me. I can't tell sometimes. Because they know that I write poetry, the fans often will send me books of poetry, which is really nice and actually that's the kind of reading that I can do on the set because you don't have to sustain hourlong spurts of reading narrative. You can just read a poem for five or 10 minutes and then move on.



Greatest Hits Vol. 1-2
Artist: Billy Joel
Price: $$28.77
From US 1998
So, let me get this straight. Before you had sex, you explained a Jethro Tull lyric to her, and she still slept with you? Let me explain to you. It was a tripartite seduction. The first step was an explication of the lyrics to "Skating Away on the Thin Ice of the New Day." The second part was writing out lyrics from Billy Joel's Piano Man. The third part was turning out the lights and flashing a Bic lighter and creating a strobe in which we eventually started to hold hands and then kiss. That's patented, by the way.
But: Billy Joel lyrics?
"Your sister's gone out, she's on a date / So you just sit at home and masturbate." That was heavy.

And I sing Bad Company's "Ready for Love" and "Feel Like Makin' Love." -from US interview 1998.

"We have a solar-paneled house and I drive an electric car," Duchovny explained. "The cool thing is that I drive it everywhere. Since we’re solar-powered, I can charge it up at home."
Reading that quote, for a moment, I felt such pure, unadulterated envy. Not jealousy. ENVY.

Duchovny drives a ZEV (zero emission vehicle) powered by electricity generated by the sun. For a second there, part of me really did *resent* that he's got that independence ... that self-reliance, and I don't.

Screw hybrids. ZEV is my holy grail. Or maybe, the mirage in my desert.

In 2000, enter the Prius. Add an extra battery, and presto, a ZEV. The plan was to save for my 1st new car, a Prius. I've owned 4 POSs with great gas mileage. 2 yrs ago, my last rent-a-wreck died, and a POS that broke down on a whim was no longer 'cute.' I had cash for a new car but not that new car. Short-term reliable trumped long-term reliable. I gave in and bought a new car that runs on gas.
