Fun Fridays – Director’s Favourite Films – Tim Robbins

Hi Film Folk!

Welcome to the end of the week & the new Fun Friday edition. The Film Doctor Team has chosen to dedicate today’s post to the “towering-softly-spoken-liberalist” Tim Robbins.

Tim, an Academy Award-winning actor, has brought to life an array of impressive characters, from Norville Barnes in Hudsucker Proxy” to Shawshank Redemption”Andy Dufresne and Mystic River“‘s Dave. However, he is also an equally talented director.  “Dead Man Walking” (1995) and “Cradle Will Rock” (1999) both garnered critical acclaim and award nominations.

Here is a, rather sophisticated, list of some of the films that – might or might not – have set him off onto the film path.

  1. The Battle of Algiers (Pontecorvo, 1966)
  2. The Clowns (Fellini, 1970)
  3. Don’t Look Back (Pennebaker, 1967)
  4. The Lower Depths (Kurosawa, 1957)
  5. McCabe & Mrs Miller (Altman, 1971)
  6. My Man Godfrey (La Cava, 1936)
  7. Nashville (Altman, 1975)
  8. Network (Lumet, 1976)
  9. Underground (Kusturica, 1995)
  10. Waiting for Guffman (Guest, 1996)
