Uwe Boll's Five Favorite Films

Sort by: Showing 5 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 3932 Average listal rating (2454 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.4


Uwe Boll : "One of my all-time favorites is Apocalypse Now, because it shows the craziness of war, and you have the feeling that the shooting also was a big adventure. And this is what I like.

What is lost, if you see war movies today -- not like Pearl Harbor, that's one of the worst movies of all time -- but like Mel Gibson's Once We Were Warriors or Soldiers or whatever (2002's We Were Soldiers), all that stuff, you feel it's all fake. You feel they go in the evenings to their hotel rooms and it's all good.

But in Apocalypse Now, you feel like these guys were f---ed!"

Uwe Boll : "I love a big adventure; it's one of the reasons I like Dances with Wolves, also on the list. Because I feel that this was also a big adventure [to film] and I like the very realistic feeling, what Kevin Costner did with that movie. I love that movie. It's emotional, and it's real, in a way. I really like it."

Uwe Boll : "A Clockwork Orange would be [on the list]. Clockwork Orange and Citizen Kane, because they're both all-time favorites, and I think Orson Welles did with Citizen Kane so much interesting stuff for the year that he did it, what nobody else did before. The same with Kubrick for Clockwork Orange. They broke a lot of filmmaking rules and the subject matter is, for me, very interesting."

Uwe Boll : "Citizen Kane is, like you see now, P.T. Anderson's There Will Be Blood. It's a good movie; it's the same kind of thing. You follow a crazy character who gets really successful, and in a very bitter way. So I really love those two movies.

It's still one of the biggest crimes of Hollywood that they didn't finance Orson Welles' movies after a while. To have a genius like him, sitting there and trying to get his last 5,000 bucks together to make another movie after he did a movie like this..."

The Searchers (1956)


Uwe Boll : "Number five...like I said, it always changes. There are a lot of good movies out there [that are] from time to time favorites. I would do The Searchers, from John Ford, with John Wayne. I'm a big Western fan, and this was a great Western.

John Ford is interesting; if you are younger, you don't appreciate John Ford so much. I liked more Howard Hawks and William Wyler Westerns when I was younger, and now, later, if you get a little older, you like John Ford more and more. It's the same with some writers. There are some writers you love when you're 20, and when you're 30 or 35 you think it's completely silly bulls--t what the guys wrote (laughs), but you appreciate other writers."


.....Holy Shit.
