While Hollywood's top filmmakers are understandably not making films to stem the growth of coronavirus, they are certainly watching them if their social media accounts are to be believed.
A number of top film directors have been revealing on Twitter the TV shows, books and films they are using to pass the time while they stay indoors to combat coronavirus.
The first to offer suggestions was "Pan’s Labyrinth" and "The Shape of Water" director Guillermo del Toro who has been forced to stop filming his upcoming feature "Nightmare Alley."
His top film included Gustaf Molander’s "A Woman’s Face," Ermanno Olmi’s "Il Posto," and Celine Sciamma’s "Girlhood" and "Tomboy."
The 55-year-old director has also been introducing his kids to “bulletproof stuff” such as Gene Kelly’s "Singin’ in the Rain" and Alfred Hitchcock’s "Rear Window."
As for Television, del Toro lists "Ozark," "Better Call Saul" and "Chopped" as his favourites.
"Doctor Strange"director Scott Derrickson replied to del Toro by saying he was enjoying Alex Garland’s new TV show "Devs" which has just ended its run on Hulu.
“It is a compelling thriller built upon some very advanced science/philosophy many-worlds theories and the visuals are gorgeous,” he wrote. “Just an amazing show.”
"Black Swan’s" Darren Aronofsky said that he had recently enjoyed "Barton Fink," "Amelie," "Rashamon," and"Total Recall."
"Midsommar’s" Ari Aster has rewatched season 3 of "The Sopranos." Rian Johnson recommended Robert Altman’s "3 Women."
