This week’s Director’s Favourite Films is focusing on the multi-hyphenate talent that all of the industry and wider world have been talking about….
Affleck seems to have made a rather smooth transition from in-front-of to behind-the-camera. In a recent interview, he even admitted: “The scripts I get as a director are way more interesting than the ones I get as an actor . Or else maybe I have a different eye that I apply to it.”
His directorial inspirations come from some of the best heist & thriller movies in film history, both European & USA produced:
- Rififi (dir. Jules Dassin, 1955)
- Heat (dir. Michael Mann, 1995)
- The Usual Suspects (dir. Bryan Singer, 1995)
- The Killing (dir. Stanley Kubrick, 1956)
