Five Favorite Films with Like Crazy Director Drake Doremus

Summary

You may not recognize Drake Doremus's name, but that's likely because you probably haven't seen any of his films. The 28-year-old Southern California native directed his first feature, Moonpie, in 2006, and his second film, Douchebag made its way to Sundance and a small theatrical release, but neither wee big box office hits. Earlier this year, however, his latest film, Like Crazy, picked up the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, marking him as a young independent director to watch. Starring Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones as a young couple trying to navigate the tricky waters of an international romance, Like Crazy has received some impressive reviews thus far, leading to a Certified Fresh stamp. We asked Drake to name his Five Favorite Films, to which he responded by narrowing it down to his five favorite love stories. Read on for the full list! Back to Article

Great list. Need to see "Head On". "H&M" is classic, flabby buttocks and all.

Thrilled to see Eternal Sunshine on a list. I love that movie. A reviewer described it as "the feeling of being in a dream where you know that you've lost something, something deep and important, but can't remember what." I thought that was perfect. My only gripe was the cop out ending.

Eternal Sunshine is one of my favorite movies, Charlie Kaufman is the shit. But that is the only one I have seen on this list.

"Eternal Sunshine..." is one of my all-time most overrated, but this list is saved by "Harold and Maude." It's the ultimate forgotten treasure and it will pretty much change your life.
