A number of top film directors have been revealing on Twitter the TV shows, books and films they are using to pass the time while they stay inside to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The first to offer suggestions was Pan’s Labyrinth and The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro who has been forced to stop filming his upcoming feature Nightmare Alley.
His top film pictures included Gustaf Molander’s A Woman’s Face, Ermanno Olmi’s Il Posto, and Celine Sciamma’s Girlhood and Tomboy.
Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson replied to del Toro by saying he was enjoying Alex Garland’s new TV show Devs which has just ended its run on Hulu.
“It is a compelling thriller built upon some very advanced science/philosophy many-worlds theories and the visuals are gorgeous,” he wrote. “Just an amazing show.”
Black Swan’s Darren Aronofsky said that he had recently enjoyed Barton Fink, Amelie, Rashamon, and Total Recall.
