Today I talked about working with a great American composer on the Radio. Elliot Goldenthal, as befits a true artists, eats breakfast about 6pm which is when he gets up. He invited me to do the shoot at his apartment in Manhattan after lunch - it was more or less 1am. I began with a visit to the toilet as I was afraid to wet myself with excitement. When I came out I wanted to say to him: 'Elliot, man, we both do cool stuff, we both have an Oscar, although mine is a distant cousin in France, but blimey, the view from your loo's window does knock mine down.'
