Watch 5 Films Director Ridley Scott Loves!

Ridley Scott's list of favorite films is as eclectic as they come.

He made a name for himself in the late-70s and early-80s with his brand of dark sci-fi cinema, like Alien and Blade Runner, but eventually went on to cover cop thrillers, war films, and pretty much everything in between. And inspiring the work of so many young filmmakers, it makes you wonder if the films that inspired him are as diverse as his filmography. According to a video by Fandor, they are:

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey
  • Star Wars
  • Muriel's Wedding
  • On the Beach
  • Gilda
