Fun Fridays – Director’s Favourite Films – Ralph Fiennes and Paul Verhoeven

Hello Film Doctor friends.

A very busy February for The Film Doctor Team already – we’re almost fully booked – but some relief is afoot as another Fun Friday arrives!



This Fun Friday connects with 3 theatrical openings – one is the release of Jose Padilha‘s remake of “Robocop” (2014). Paying dues to the original “Robocop” (1987), let’s revisit Paul Verhoeven‘s Favourite Films .

Film Doctor Ralph Fiennes

Then, the Charles Dickens biopic “The Invisible Woman” opens on limited release this weekend (with wider UK run from 21st February 2014) we turn to its star & director,  Ralph Fiennes

  •  (1963, dir. Federico Fellini)
  • Vertigo (1958, dir. Alfred Hitchcock) quoted as Fiennes’ favourite Alfred Hitchcock movie.
  • Don’t Look Now  (1973, dir. Nicolas Roeg) – quoted as Fiennes’ favourite horror.

And  “Dallas Buyers Club” gets a ‘Special Mention’ – the Golden Globe-winner (Matthew McConaughey for lead and Jared Leto for supporting actor)/ Oscar-nominee (6 in total) has finally arrived at the UK cinemas as well.






We are yet to find out its Director Jean-Marc Vallee‘s cinematic influences, but we can enjoy some insights from this interview for Interview Magazine and one for Flavorwire.
