She also spoke about what it is like to work with Lynne Ramsay and Bong Joon Ho and how it was working in the Oscar-winning Michael Clayton.
Here are eleven of her favourite films:
I Was Born, but… / Tokyo Story (Yasujiro Ozu)
Journey to Italy (Roberto Rossellini)
La Belle et la Bête (Jean Cocteau)
M (Fritz Lang)
Medea (Pier Paolo Pasolini)
My Childhood / My Ain Folk / My Way Home (Bill Douglas)
Stranger by the Lake (Alain Guiraudie)
Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (Apichatpong Weerasethakul)
“Exquisitely atmospheric summer cruising. Boys looking for boys and the idyll of abandon. A breathtakingly swoony study in wicked tension, the romance of danger, and real erotic yearning,” the actress said about Stranger by the Lake.
“One of the most elliptical and mesmerising films I know. George Sanders and Ingrid Bergman caught in a landscape of alienation — from each other, from southern Italy: a study in inarticulacy, loneliness and longing, built on a radiant belief in miracles,” she wrote about Journey to Italy.
