Fun Fridays – Director’s Favourite Films – Steve McQueen

Hello Film Doctor friends.

So the time has come for the first, fresh, Fun Friday post of 2014.



For those of you unfamiliar with Fun Fridays, it’s simple. We share the favourite films and film influences of top directors (living and otherwise) so that you can expand your filmic knowledge, palette and see where they shaped their film style. Buy/watch/rent these films!

With “12 Years Of Slave” opening in the UK this weekend,  we rightly turn to its Director  Steve McQueen (“Hunger”, “Shame”), for his list of cinematic inspirations.






Here they are (first listed in the Sight & Sound magazine):

  • Couch (1964, dir. Andy Warhol)
  • Contempt (1963, dir. Jean-Luc Godard)
