Over 30 Movies Paul Thomas Anderson Wants You to See: Indie Wire
Any list rounding up the greatest American directors working today most likely has Paul Thomas Anderson at the top or very near the top of it. In naming the 100 best films of the 2010s, IndieWire included three Paul Thomas Anderson movies ("Inherent Vice," "Phantom Thread," and "The Master"), more entries than any other filmmaker on the list. Part of what makes Anderson's films so vital is that the director himself is one of the most eclectic cinephiles in the world. What other director cites "The Silence of the Lambs" and "Big Daddy" as two of his or her most beloved movies? That's Anderson for you.
