That’s right, although Friday Favourite Movies might be catchier I’m going to save Teresa Palmer’s choices for the end of the week and bring you a director’s double up now. By that I mean the favourite movies of Oscar nominee and Boy director Taika Waititi and the man with the number one movie in the country at the moment, Stuart Beattie. For those of you playing at home, said movie is Tomorrow, When The War Began, which looks likely to make its budget back within the first month of Australian and New Zealand release.
Anywho, I spoke to both of the lads recently and here is what they had to say about their fave movies:
Taika Waititi -"My favourite period is 70s cinema. I love Korean cinema and a little bit of Japanese. I'm not really into my French films, perhaps a little of the British films but not really. But I'm mainly into Korean at the moment. I’m sure it's just the kind of filmmakers you would expect me to be into based on how my films are made. People say `oh, you must love Wes Anderson' and I do, but his films are way more stylish than mine. I like anything that's original. The only thing that I've seen recently that I really liked was The Hurt Locker."
