Luca Guadagnino’s Favorite American Popcorn Films

Sometimes you’re in the mood for an art house film, such as Luca Guadagnino’s flawless family epic I Am Love, the heartbreakingly beautiful Call Me By Your Name, the sensual Tilda Swinton-as-Ziggy-Stardust-inspired-rockstar thriller A Bigger Splash, or the elegant horror remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria. 

Other times you just need a big, bad, classic, All-American popcorn movie. Here, Guadagnino lists his 10 personal favorites.
