To celebrate our Movie Issue we asked some of our favourite people to share their most beloved films. Bianca from CocoRosie has an expectedly eclectic selection…
A Saturday Night Live spin-off featuring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey as best friends and co-hosts of cable network program Wayne’s World. In his film debut, Myers stars alongside Rob Lowe, Tia Carrere and Lara Flynn Boyle. The whole thing was reportedly shot in just over a month.
Directed, written and produced by the Wayans Brothers, Shawn and Marlon Wayans star as FBI agents who impersonate a pair of white heiresses in order to save their jobs.
THE COLOUR OF POMEGRANATES
A 1968 film directed by Soviet Armenian director Sergei Parajanov, The Colour of Pomegranates in a non-linear biography of Armenian poet Sayat Nova. It aims to tell his story poetically rather than literally and deals with the poet’s soul and destiny. Michelangelo Antonioni called it a film “of a stunningly perfect beauty”.
PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK
Adapted from the novel of the same name, this 1975 Australian mystery tells the story of three schoolgirls and their teacher who disappear during a picnic at Hanging Rock on Valentine’s Day in 1900. Roger Ebert described it as “a film of haunting mystery and buried sexual hysteria”. It was critically accalimed in Australia and abroad and the cinematography has a distinct ethereal aesthetic, apparently achieved by placing the a piece of bridal veil over the camera lens.
