Ridley Scott helped define an era of dark, mystifying science fiction films with Alien and Blade Runner. But over the course of many decades as a director, Scott has directed sword-and-sandal historical epics (Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven), capers (Matchstick Men), war films (Black Hawk Down), and even romance (A Good Year). With that kind of eclectic filmography, it’s natural that Scott’s favorite films would also be diverse. This video highlights some of his favorites, from a classic film noir and Toni Collete’s breakout film to two of the most beloved science fiction films to come before Scott’s own genre-defining work.
