I Kill Giants Director Anders Walter’s Top Five Influences

I Kill Giants Director Anders Walter's Top Five Influences

To celebrate the UK DVD release of I Kill Giants, Academy Award-winning director Anders Walter discusses five of his biggest movie inspirations and the power of film to transport us back to childhood.

“Every year I maybe see ten fantastic movies, but they don’t stay with me the same as when I was young. They might become classics in their own way. But people’s favourite films, I think, always have to do with when you are most open to the world in general. And obviously that is when you are young.”

The Neon Demon (2016)

Of all of the films released in 2016, Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon is one that I have thought about most. The reviews of the film are polarizing. Some people loved it, others hated it. Films like this are exactly the kind that I love to watch, films that really bore into your brain; films that you can’t quite pin down into a genre or a simple one dimensional theme. I could feel the director’s narcissism through the screen… I am still not sure how to feel about The Neon Demon, but since viewing it some time ago, I still can’t seem to get it out of my head.

“Beauty isn’t everything. It’s the only thing.”
