One of the earliest movies that shaped Jerome's tastes in film would have to be Fight Club. The psychological game that the movie plays on the viewer- a main character with no name & quick flashes of Tyler Durden foreshadowing the narrator's transition to his alter ego- caused him to break away from mold of main stream summer action flicks. Movies such as Clockwork Orange and Donnie Darko suddenly became more appealing with greater appreciation for character and plot development. Content rich movies took Jerome from a glazed eyed, barely-there-viewer, to an actively engaged analyst and critic. This love for character development and plot spilled over to television mysteries and drama, and even to books.
