James Franco Names Favorite “About Hollywood” Films

The Disaster Artist is one of my favorite films of 2017, and it’s a humorous and insightful look at making movies. In a FandangoNOW interview, director/actor James Franco listed his favorite “About Hollywood” movies. Check out the list, as well as my review of The Disaster Artist, below!!

James Franco’s list is pretty solid, although it’s hard to rank Boogie Nights, in my opinion, over such classics as Sunset Boulevard, Chinatown, and Sullivan’s Travels. I’m glad he also included Adaptation, which features one of Nicolas Cage’s finest hours, in the mix.

Here’s James Franco’s “About Hollywood” list:

  1. Boogie Nights

  2. Ed Wood

  3. Sunset Boulevard

  4. Singin’ in the Rain

  5. Swingers

  6. Sullivan’s Travels

  7. A Star is Born (with James Mason)

  8. Barton Fink

  9. Adaptation

  10. The Bad and The Beautiful

  11. Some Like it Hot

  12. Shampoo

  13. Beverly Hills Cop

  14. Chinatown

  15. Rebel Without a Cause
