What made you become a film buff?

I can pinpoint almost to the day when I became a film buff instead of just a casual viewer. It was in August 1978, and we had moved into Sendagaya Mansion, Tokyo, as a stopgap before a house. In the lobby they had some paperbacks lying around, and I picked up The Book of Lists. The film section had ten best lists from the likes of Orson Welles. To my great surprise, I knew quite a few. I decided then and there that I was going to explore further...
