TBAW is introducing Must Must Watch, a biweekly series where students will list their favourite movies of all time. This week, Emil Viscony tells TBAW about the 15 most important movies of his life.
Emil’s Must Must Watch
Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) – Gambit (2013) – True Grit (2010) – No Country For Old Men (2007)
“I know people say that Inside Llewyn Davis was a boring movie, and it was. It was pretty uneventful, and it was really sad too, but I think if you stick to it, you can actually get something from it. I ended up thinking about it for a long time and I came to the conclusion that I actually liked it. Especially that cat – the cat was my fav.
There Will Be Blood (2007) – Punch Drunk Love (2002) – Magnolia (1999) – Django Unchained (2012)
“I know Adam Sandler has made a lot of bad movies, but I actually really liked him in Punch Drunk Love. I don’t know why he does crap like Grownups and Happy Gilmore, because he actually can be a decent actor.
Four Rooms (1995) – The Station Agent (2003) – The Master (2012) – A Serious Man (2009)
“Four Rooms is like the first movie that I ever remember seeing. It’s pretty cheapish comedy, but I’ve watched it a couple of times since and it just makes me feel good, so I like it.”
Grindhouse (2007) – Inglorious Basterds (2008) – Boogie Nights (1997) – Fargo (1996)
“Theres a lot of Tarantino on there, because I really like his stuff. I mean, have you seen Django Unchained, it was no doubt my favourite movie of 2012. Especially the final scene, crazy good.
Burn After Reading (2008) – Cigarettes and Coffee (1993) – O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)
“Burn After Reading was a damn funny movie. I mean really funny. Also, George Clooney and Brad Pitt together on anything is already going to be gold (Oceans) I’ve seen it a couple of times now, and at first I didn’t really get it, but then when I saw it about a year ago, I loved it.
