Brady Corbet shares with us five films he loves.

01

The Devil, Probably, Robert Bresson, 1977

Watch the film

One that changed my way of approaching movies, as a viewer and as a filmmaker. I often recommend films that have an unconventional narrative, such as Tarkovski’s Andreï Roublev or The Mirror. These are the ones that made me understand cinema differently.

02

The Passenger, Andrzej Munk, 1963

Watch the film

I just love this film. Nobody has seen it. Whenever I mention it, everyone thinks of the Antonioni one… It’s tragic and disturbing, but also extraordinary for its level of craftsmanship, its impressive camera movements…

03

Pola X, Leos Carax, 1999

Watch the film

I have a strong affinity for this one. I remember the first time I saw it. It was like a fever dream. I was maybe eleven and had picked it up in a video store in Colorado because of the poster.

04

Day of Wrath, Carl Theodor Dreyer, 1943

Watch the film

Just because it’s Dreyer’s best film.

05

The Virgin Spring, Ingmar Bergman, 1960

Watch the film

It's strange, I don't really like the Medieval period however three of my favorite movies take place at that time: this one, Andreï Roublev by Andreï Tarkovski and Marketa Latzrova by Frantisek Vlacil.
