Anyone who’s seen “Documentary Now!” knows that Bill Hader
is a cinephile. His love of film extends beyond “Grey Gardens
,” of course, and in a new Village Voice interview occasioned by the imminent premiere of “Barry
,” he discusses a few recent favorites. Chief among them is “Girls Trip
,” which he “got emotional” during and whose ending “really moved” him.
“I totally got emotional watching ‘Girls Trip
,’ and it might have been because I was on a plane. But I was really moved, weirdly, by the end of that movie,” he says.
As for why it resonated with him, well, “I just liked that she stuck up for herself, and that being honest was the thing that was celebrated. And like everybody, I think Tiffany Haddish
is a fucking genius. She is unbelievably funny. But you have no idea what the thing is that will affect you.”
“Girls Trip” isn’t alone.
