Exclusive! Perry Farrell’s Classic Movies

Perryfarrell
I hopped a plane to Chicago over the weekend to enjoy a long weekend of rock and pop at the Lollapalooza festival.  And what a weekend it was. I stopped at the Sony PlayStation party to check out Buzz, a quick, fun but occasionally tough trivia game which will tease your brain with movies and all things pop culture. 

At the Friday night PlayStation party, I hung for a while with the legendary Perry Farrell, the founder of Jane’s Addiction, Porno For Pyros, the intense Satellite Party and, of course, Lollapalooza.

Want to know what Perry thinks is the most classic movie of all time?  What are you waiting for?  Hit the jump.

Ferrell kicks it old school when it comes to favorite actors, saying, "I have to say I love the old classics, the DeNiros, the Hoffman’s, the McQueens, and the Newmans. They were macho, but not offensively so. They were people I wanted to be and they
inspired me.    Today, I think they push some of
the actors into big films before they’re ready.  So they don’t have the same effect on me as the classics."

Farrell sat back, sipped some tea and mused, "If I had to pick one film
that I’d consider to be the best movie, it would be Papillon. I mean, Dustin Hoffman was brilliant and
deep.

Who else does he consider to be classic?  "Helen Mirren in The Queen
was so poised, so brilliant. You could see it in her
every move. You could even see it in her
Oscar speech."
