Jason Reitman's Five Favorite Films

Election (1999)
Jason Reitman : "Election inspired my voice as a director more than any other film I've ever seen. When I think about the perfect balance between comedy and drama on each of my films, the standard that I hold myself to is Election."

Jason Reitman : "It was my introduction to dark humour. I don't think I knew what dark comedy was until I saw Dr. Strangelove."

Jason Reitman : "It's the cinematic definition of charm. We can all only aspire to find love like Harold and Maude."

Jason Reitman : "Alien is a perfect film and if I were to ever make a sci-fi or horror film, the benchmark for me would be Alien. I would put Alien and Aliens side-by-side, actually. I think Alien 3 is mediocre and I think Alien: Resurrection is a travesty. AvP is fun. Whoever wins, we lose, you know -- why not? I would love to see a return to greatness for that franchise. Knowing that David Fincher was given a chance, it's actually kind of confusing. I think with better writers Alien 3 would be measuring up, because obviously he is as quality a director as Scott or Cameron. Jeunet is a brilliant director too, but just not right for that series."

Jason Reitman : " I like to write movies about people who can talk. That's kind of a defining characteristic of my films. People who are unusually convincing and who do not lose their cool. If I could be reborn the coolest guy alive, I would be reborn Ferris Bueller."
