Spanning several generationsa€”from newcomers to Oscar Award-winning veteransa€”this volume features a discussion of the movies that shaped the careers of these filmmakers and, in turn, cinema history. Here directors, including Peter Bogdanovich, Kimberly Peirce, Arthur Hiller, and John Waters, explore the film they saw at an especially formative moment, how it influenced their own worka€”or, in some cases, led them to tell stories through movies themselvesa€”and the effects it had on their thoughts about cinema. Revealing stories include how after watching Rebel Without a Cause, John Woo started combing his hair like James Dean and even began talking like him; Apocalypse Now inspired Danny Boyle to take risks and make larger-than-life films; and a line in The Wizard of Oza€”qWho could ever have thought a good little girl like you could destroy all my beautiful wickedness?qa€”has become almost a personal mantra or prayer for John Waters.And they cut out some of the Cyclops sequence. Landis: Well thata#39;s completely silly. Ita#39;s ridiculous. But his longevity hasna#39;t been impacted much. Therea#39;s a bar in Monsters, Inc. called Harry Hausena#39;s. In Spy Kids 2 the skeletons show up.
