Quinn Armstrong is a Seattle-based director of indie films, including 2020’s Survival Skills. Listen to our interview with Armstrong.
The closest thing I have to a favorite movie. Incredibly restrained, and deeply heartbreaking.
An 11-minute short made on an optical printer. The scariest thing I’ve ever seen.
F for Fake
Orson Welles’ best movie. Might as well be an essay about modern politics in America.
Night of the Hunter
Comedy and horror are separated by a hair’s breadth.
If I had to make a case for an objective “best” director it might be Wilder.
Fires on the Plain
Harrowing, adjective: acutely distressing or painful.
Taste of Cherry
Kiarostami was the closest thing the movies have had to Anton Chekhov.
Under the Skin
Glazer uses familiar tools to construct a truly alien perspective.
The Bride of Frankenstein
The concept of monstrosity is always linked to queerness, but never more boldly or beautifully than here.
Kung Fu Panda Holiday
Just trust me.
