Top 5 is back with a brand new episode from Ian Pons Jewell. The master mind behind videos such as Rude Kids “Jack Daniels”, Jargon + Tinie Tempah “Disappoint you” and Jehst “Starting Over” gives us a brief insight into video/films that have inspired him and his works.

“These are some of my favourites, what sprang to mind whilst writing to you.”

1. Szinbad by Zoltán Huszárik

“The most beautiful film I’ve ever seen. Hungarian is just one of the most poetic languages to listen to, not sure if a dubbed version exists, but if it does, don’t get it, watch with subtitles.”

2. Daisies by Věra Chytilová


“Why do they say ‘I love you’? Why don’t they say, for example, ‘egg’?”

3. Terror at the opera by Dario Argento

“My favourite Argento film.”

4. Amer by Hélène Cattet & Bruno Forzani

“There’s a scene where you are put in the point of view of a strong breeze blowing up the young lady’s skirt.”

5. 2001: A Space Odyssey – Stanley Kubrick

“I was lucky enough to watch this as a child, with no pre conceptions, much like its original audience. It blew my mind. One of the greatest works of cinema.”
