Saoirse has recently talked to Rotten Tomatoes about five of her favorite films, her love for classic cinema, her appreciation for David Lynch, and her experience on the set of The Grand Budapest Hotel. Read the interview below:
Taxi Driver (Martin Scorsese, 1976; 98% Tomatometer)
[Taxi Driver is] a film that really kind of struck me on an emotional level and as somebody who works and can kind of appreciate how films are made. I remember when I saw Taxi Driver for the first time, and I saw the creativity and the imagination that went into the shots that Scorsese chose, and to really kind of capture a very particular kind of New York. I thought it was really wonderful. You know, you can watch certain films and there are certain things that will stick out for you. It can be a great character or a performance or an ensemble performance or whatever, but when everything seems to come into play, it’s always really impressive, I think, when every single cast member is very strong. So I felt like with this film, cinematically, it just kind of ticked all those boxes for me.
