Time Magazine have released their Top 100 Most Influential people list. Boyhood’s director Richard Linklater, Julianne Moore who won this year’s Best Lead Actress for her role in Still Alice and Interstellar Director, Christopher Nolan all made the list.
Talking about Linklater’s groundbreaking work in Boyhood, actor Ethan Hawke wrote, “We may never understand Rick’s unorthodox path and how it led to movies like School of Rock, Before Sunrise and Boyhood: the vegetarian baseball star from Huntsville, Texas; the years of hard labor on offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico; teaching himself the history of film through the ingenuity of starting the Austin Film Society (with the help of a local Kinko’s and a 16-mm projector). But the consistent thread in Rick’s career has been a passion for cinema that cannot be defeated or undermined in any way.”
Fashion director and film director said of Moore, “I was fortunate enough to witness Julianne’s incredible skill as an actress firsthand when we worked together on a film that I directed called A Single Man. I remember looking through the camera lens before the first take and realizing that she projects something very rare: an actual luminosity that is dazzling in life and that can be captured on film. This is the difference between an actor and a star.”
Michael Caine who worked with Director Nolan on six films in a row said, “Christopher is very secretive, and each film has a code title. He had us call Inception by the name Oliver’s Arrow. On the set, no matter how hot it is, he wears an overcoat and sips tea all day. You wouldn’t be able to pick him out as the director. There’s no shouting and screaming—he’s a very quiet gentleman. If you get it wrong, you just do it again. It’s like working with a philosopher.”
The list also includes Lee Daniels, Reese Witherspoon and Bradley Cooper
