No, I don't remember. I think it was in the context of having admiration for what Lynch does, in general.

Aside from Noi the Albino, Weersethakul’s films, and Breakfast with Curtis, it always seemed to me that the stuff he said he liked post-2000s should be taken with a grain of salt. Not that they’re not good movies, but almost everything he mentions hereafter seems to be in promotion of his friends — previous players in his own films, new films by directors he was inspired by whose recent work was beginning to fall off the radar, or just people he perceives as “in his club” or on the same side of history (Nolan - promoting film acquisition). Even Mystic River, which is a decent flick, was something he was talking about shortly after he made Punch-Drunk, not coincidentally shortly after he was trying to get Penn in PSH’s role...

Agree with this. A lot of it wasn't necessarily because it even inspired one of his films so much as someone (usually Xixax/C&RV) Asked him what he had seen and liked recently.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Pretty sure he mentored the director of Breakfast With Curtis at the Sundance labs too. Was a fun flick for sure, but yeah, big grain of salt.

He's at it again

Quote
Paul Thomas Anderson, the director of “The Master” and “There Will Be Blood” and an admirer of “Dunkirk,” hails the film’s economical quality. He notes that there’s very little dialogue, which contributes to its power. “Its practically wordless structure was so exciting to me,” Anderson tells Variety. “It’s stripped down to bare essentials.”
