The first I was able to pry from him was Shane Meadows' A Room for Romeo Brass and the next was one I hadn't heard of. Warren said, "Nil by Mouth." I couldn't be sure I'd heard him right, "Sorry Warren, was that Nil by Mouse?" "No, Gary Oldman's Nil by Mouth - if you haven't seen it man, track it down."
Finally he expanded upon his trepidation — "my list is always changing as I grow and you move through the different stages of your life. Like one film I love is The Abyss. It's a great film but I remember watching it with my Granddad so it's tied up in my memories of him."
