Director Ridley Scott really needs no introduction. The director of Alien, Blade Runner and Gladiator, among others, has a unique style that many are probably jealous of. Scott will soon release his latest film Napoleon. The first trailer for the film already promises to be an epic story.

To celebrate the arrival of Scott’s new film, 120 critics were asked what their favorite Ridley Scott film is. Since Scott has directed 28 films, the list is considerable in length.

Humble beginnings
Scott was born on November 30, 1937 in South Shields, England. His interest in Science Fiction starts at an early age. As a child he enjoyed reading books by HG Wells. His love for films also starts around this time. Some of his favorite films from childhood include It! The Terror from Beyond Space, The Day the Earth Stood Still and Them!

His career behind the camera started in 1965 when he directed television programs for the BBC. Unfortunately, these old programs with his name on them have almost all been lost.

In 1977, Scott directed his first film called The Duellists. This film is nominated for the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and it wins the award for Best Debut Film.

Scott’s worldwide breakthrough comes with the 1979 film Alien. His talent for remaining innovative immediately shines through. It is thanks to Scott that the hero of the film has changed into a heroine, ultimately played by Sigourney Weaver.
