Raiders of the Lost Ark
"My favourite movie, when you say the word favourite there's a little bit of guilty pleasure in that, and a little bit of who you are, what makes you smile, that kind of thing, that would be Raiders of the Lost Ark ."
To Kill a Mockingbird
"I think if I had to pick just one film to which I had a very strong reaction and can remember vividly how I felt, it would be To Kill a Mockingbird . I think it had all of the elements of a great film and it had such a strong moral register."
Harold and Maude (1971)
"[Harold and Maude, 1971, is] my favourite film of all time. I think it's for the very same reasons that I love Little Miss Sunshine . It's very real and very human, just dealing with life and death and all that's in between."
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)
"My favourite movie of all time is a very serious film, one that's dear to my heart, called Anchorman . It's an unbelievable movie and I've seen it... I can quote it if you like. I mean, I really do know this film backwards."
Bicycle Thieves (Ladri di biciclette) (1948)
"The prototypical movie of Italian neo-realism. Directed by Vittorio De Sica, with a cast of non-professional actors, [Bicycle Thieves, 1948] captures the bleakness of the period in the poverty and humiliation of the thief, seen through the eyes of his young son."
Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)
"If I was told that I had to pick one film, I think it would be Meet Me in St Louis , because that's where my father [Vincent Minnelli] met my mother [Judy Garland], and I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for that movie. So I guess that's my favourite."
The Philadelphia Story (1940)
"For me, I watch that movie [The Philadelphia Story, 1940] and it's the sort of the epitome ... the perfect suspension of disbelief. There's a moment when you really don't believe that they're going to be able to be together and the trick is turning that corner in a way that you didn't expect it. For me, that story does it. I always return to that."
