The Office’s Rainn Wilson stopped by NPR’s Morning Edition today to talk movies, in the latest in a series that has Hollywood stars recommend DVDs. As it turns out, three of his picks are Criterion titles. You can listen to the amusing broadcast here, in which he chatters enthusiastically about Days of Heaven (“Terrence Malick just paints his films”), Withnail and I (“Truly one of the great comedies of all time”), and Dazed and Confused (“It’s like a Chekhov play with a bunch of jocks and stoners and dorks from an American high school”).
