Five Favourite Films with Renny Harlin
The 12 Rounds star picks his list.
"Another movie that is hugely influential to me and I never get tired of watching it. The cinemascope photography is unbelievable, evolutionary and fantastic. The performances, the production design and the pacing - it's kind of slow but it draws you into it and it makes you wish there could still be movies like that nowadays. I mean most movies these days are made for teenagers. It's almost as if people's brains work differently these days. Maybe its commercials and music videos and videogames and you just want more stimuli at a faster pace. Filmmakers seem to be afraid to trust the audience more. I don't mean that movies should be slow and boring, but if you have a good enough script you should be able to use the power of the image to tell a story. It's like if you look at Pixar movies like Wall-E, actually I do think they have a slower pace, there's such richness in every frame."
