Five Favorite Films with Push Director Paul McGuigan

by |

Summary

Given his filmography of stylized thrillers, Scottish director Paul McGuigan (Gangster No. 1, Wicker Park, Lucky Number Slevin) seemed a fitting choice to helm February's supernatural actioner Push, a Hong Kong-set sci-fi adventure about normal people endowed with super powers starring Chris Evans, Dakota Fanning, and Djimon Hounsou. Accordingly, one may be taken aback to hear that McGuigan names romantic auteur Wong Kar-Wai among his favorite directorial influences, but as he demonstrates in Push -- which captures the vibrant streets of Hong Kong in lush detail, appropriately -- McGuigan possesses a strong visual finesse that belies his history of making brutal crime movies and Hollywood suspense flicks.Back to Article
