The Soho House London member, film director, screenwriter and radio presenter shares five of his all-time favourite films

I, Daniel Blake, directed by Ken Loach
‘This film has so much texture in the cinematography, and the story is pertinent, personal, and painful. I cried during and after.’

Oldboy, directed by Park Chan-wook 
‘This is an incredible film. The way it all weaves together was like watching a novel unfold. Park Chan-wook is a gripping storyteller and auteur.’

Us, directed by Jordan Peele 
‘I’m not really into horror but I love this film. The concept is so intriguing and I still find myself randomly thinking about the ending over a year after watching it.’

Toy Story, directed by John Lasseter 
‘I had this on VHS as a kid and I’ve probably watched it 1,000 times. It’s the first movie I remember watching and I still love it to this day.’

You Were Never Really Here, directed by Lynne Ramsay 
‘The use of sound in this film is unmatched and it has directly influenced my filmmaking process. Joaquin Phoenix’s performance is incredible, as always.’
