Actresss Gwyneth Paltrow listed her favorite films in her latest newsletter, and she also asked five prominent writers and directors to list their favorite DVDs as well. One writer/director, Oscar-nominated auteur Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, The Darjeeling Limited) named Hideaki Anno and Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion science fiction anime series. According to Anderson:
This is a Japanese cartoon that is very difficult to describe and might not sound that great if I tried anyway. It is 24 episodes, and we watched them all in less than a week because you start to want to believe it's real. This could spawn something like Scientology.
Thank you to Sara Pocock for the news tip.
