Hanks Hails Space Odyssey His Favourite Film

Oscar-winning actor TOM HANKS has hailed sci-fi adventure 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY as his favourite film of all time. The FORREST GUMP star insists he "can't see enough" of the 1968 STANLEY KUBRICK-directed movie, because it involves the audience in a unique way. He says, "That's what I'm looking for when I go to see a film, just like any other cinema-goer. "The period, the topic or the genre don't matter to me. The only thing that matters for me is: 'boy, what would you do if that were you?"' He also listed 1972 mafia movie THE GODFATHER, crime thriller FARGO, violent high school drama ELEPHANT and BOOGIE NIGHTS among his top five all-time favourites.
