Christopher Nolan’s Favorite Movies: 30 Films the Director Wants You to See (The Tree of Life) – IndieWire

Christopher Nolan has decided to partner with IndieWire and name his 30 favorite movies of all-time. The list isn’t half-bad at all. I’m especially approving of his Terrence Malick inclusions (“The Thin Red Line” and “The Tree of Life“). However, as it is with all lists, one must wonder why a few films appear on his list. “First Man”? Really? I loved Damien Chazelle’s “Whiplash” and “La La Land,” but “First Man” seemed like a step back for me. Also, 1978’s “Superman” is not and never will be as good as Richard Donner’s director’s cut of “Superman II” and yet the former appears in Nolan’s picks and the latter doesn’t.
