Current.com and The Rotten Tomatoes Show have been getting a lot of interesting directors and actors to pick their top 5 movies in a short video segment called Five Favorite Films. This week’s guest is documentary filmmaker Errol Morris. I’ve listed his picks below… interesting to note: only one is a documentary!
5. Detour (Dir. Edgar Ulmer)
4. The Fallen Idol (Dir. Carol Reed)
3. Psycho (Dir. Alfred Hitchcock)
2. Sullivan’s Travels (Dir. Preston Sturges)
1. The Emperor’s Naked Army Marches On (Dir. Kazuo Hara)
On a related note, Errol Morris also recently wrote a 7-part series of articles for The New York Times about master of forgery Han van Meegeren. It seems thorough and exhaustive as only Errol Morris can be.
