Cultural life: Jared Leto, actor and musician
Friday 17 May 2013
I've been watching a lot of documentaries lately. I really liked Restrepo – it's very powerful and immediate and it takes you right into the battle of the Afghanistan war in a way I hadn't previously experienced.
The soundtrack to The Last Temptation of Christ by Peter Gabriel: it's ethereal and evocative, simple and beautiful.
Punchdrunk's Sleep No More was interesting because it was interactive. It normally wouldn't be at the top of my list of things to see, but I liked that it was breaking with convention.
I read a book about the history of antibiotics in the Thirties called The Demon Under the Microscope by Thomas Hager. I was battling out a cold when I happened to stumble upon it. I think so many of us take for granted the ability to get well quickly and easily.
I collect art. Dan Colen's work combines irreverence and simplicity in a way that's both jarring and playful. Damien Hirst did the cover of our new album. I'm also a fan of Jonathan Yeo's work.
