2009 Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom

imaginative, poetic, emotional, supernatural, honest and deeply felt. I love this film so much.


1958 USA

Like a dreamscape. Obsessive characters, Jimmy Stewart at his best, just sublime imagery and filmmaking.

Wild at Heart

1990 USA

As a young actor I remember this film making a big impression on me. The front-footed emotion. Again, I love the dream landscape world and imagery of this film, gorgeous.

Tokyo Story

1953 Japan

Beautiful construction of shots, understated, gentle emotion, deeply felt.

Un prophète

2009 France, Italy

Love the camera work, the documented feel of the film, the raw acting style.

Petite maman

2021 France

A quietly powerful film that envelopes you in its world. Céline has such an original voice. I’m excited to see what she does next.

Picnic at Hanging Rock

1975 Australia

I love every film that Peter Weir has made but if I had to choose one it would be this. Atmospheric, disturbing, an Aussie masterpiece,

The Age of Innocence

1993 USA

Beautiful acting, cinematography, inventive storytelling, immaculate filmmaking.


2019 USA, Sweden

The best soundtrack for a horror film, disturbing, beautiful imagery, knock-out performance from Florence Pugh.

The Squid and the Whale

2005 USA

Brilliant intelligent dialogue, funny, moving.
