01

Days of Heaven, Terrence Malick, 1978

Watch the film

I’m fascinated by this film. I don’t know why but it’s the only film that relaxes me at any time. I watch it and feel at peace. It might be thanks to the actress Linda Manz's voice over. Maybe one the most interesting voices of cinema!

02

Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick, 1975

Watch the film

A classic. Everything is perfect. On top of its incredible cinematography and mise en scène, I think it’s the story that attracts me to it. I love the idea that the the hero is a huge asshole. And I cry every time his son fells off of his horse. That’s maybe why I never rode a horse.

03

Out of the Blue, Dennis Hopper, 1980

Watch the film

A fantastic film by Dennis Hopper. A great portrait of punk rock youth culture in the early eighties, in which, here again, you’re hypnotized by the performance and voice of Linda Manz.

04

Streetwise, Mary Ellen Mark, 1984

Watch the film

I’ve rarely seen a documentary where the camera was that invisible. It almost feels like you're seeing a fiction film when you watch this film about homeless teenagers and prostitutes in Seattle in 1984.

05

Rosemary’s Baby, Roman Polanski, 1968

Watch the film

I just love this film for how modern it is. It’s still so much more modern than many films today. And I’m in love with Mia Farrow in it.
