“I’m classical, he’s more rock’n’roll than me” said Ridley Scott once about his younger brother, Tony.
I suppose my favourite film of his is True Romancefor the story and cast that were all completely used in the film. It was one of those films that had a cast half of which you’d expect to be given cameos but, instead, they all had full rounded roles.
Tony Scott is most famous for Top Gun, which is fantastic, but I’d also like to note The Last Boy Scout, which featured a very gritty Bruce Willis and Enemy of the State
which starred a first time serious role for Will Smith and Gene Hackman. To me, he always seemed to get the best from his cast, playing to their strengths.
