• Last month, award-winning director Asif Kapadia paid a visit to the Criterion closet. Working in both documentary and narrative cinema, the British filmmaker is best known for his movies The Warrior, Senna, and this year’s heartbreaking, Academy Award–nominated Amy Winehouse documentary Amy. Above, watch Kapadia pluck a wide range of selections, from Simon of the Desert to Yi Yi.

    I really love his picks, especially Do The Right Thing. That film still remains a provocative film.
