Ali Güngörmüs’ Movie Pick

I must admit: I thought that Ali Güngörmüs — like most outstanding chefs — must be a bit of a workaholic. But he certainly finds time to watch movies because he immediately had an interesting selection of favourites. Such as Clint Eastwood’s Gran Torino (which I like). Or P.T.Anderson’s No Country for Old Men (which I like very much). Or a film by Turkish-German director Fatih Akın: Head-On (which I like very, very much). By the way: Ali Güngörmüs worked as a consultant on Akın’s movie Soul Kitchen. The operative word there is clearly: kitchen.

Thomas Beckmann’s Movie Pick

Given the fact that he’s made a whole CD based on compositions by Charlie Chaplin, it’s small wonder that one of the cellist Thomas Beckmann’s two favourite films of all time is the Chaplin masterpiece Limelight. And given what Thomas told me about his dreams as a boy (see my blog), there’s a certain poetry to his second pick: Akira Kurosawa’s magical 1990 movie Dreams – based on the director’s own dreams.

Oskar Roehler’s Movie Pick

Oskar Roehler’s favourite movie of all time is the weird and wonderful David Lynch classic Eraserhead. Made in black and white, just like Oskar’s own outstanding study in strangeness No Place to Go.

Nina Pauer’s Movie Pick

 As someone who’s given so much thought to the existential crisis faced byGermany’s twentysomethings, it’s perhaps no surprise that Nina Pauer’s favourite movie features a young woman looking out on life and not quite knowing what she sees. And that movie is Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation – which, I was surprised to discover, is already a decade old.

Alina Levshin’s favourite movie of all time

Alina Levshin is best know for her portrayal – in the movie Combat Girls – of a young neo-Nazi girl, the world she lives in, her aggressions. So it’s interesting that her FMOAT is a movie about a young man, his clique, the uniforms they wear, their aggressions: Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange.
