When it comes to men we admire, there aren’t many guys higher up than Anthony Bourdain. He’s a great role model, overcoming drug addiction and his own personal demons to have one of the most successful culinary careers in modern history. If we’re ever feeling doubtful, there’s a plethora of his cultural contributions to boost our spirits. But Anthony Bourdain isn’t the kind of guy to think of himself as inspirational and being a success doesn’t mean you’re exempt from slumps. After all, despite the name, writer’s block isn’t specific to writers. Anyone who creates something as a living or a hobby is bound to find themselves out of gas at some point. When Bourdain finds himself in a slump, he turns, at least in part, to the cinema. Here are the movies he uses as inspiration.
- In the Mood for Love – Amazon
- Apocalypse Now – Amazon | iTunes
- Suspiria – Amazon
- The Tree of Life – Amazon | iTunes
- The Friends of Eddie Coyle – Amazon
