You might recall the Kitchen Conversation we had in September with Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos and his wife, actor Ariane Labed, when their film The Lobster premiered at the New York Film Festival. During their visit to Criterion, the duo also took a trip inside our film closet to talk about (and take home) some of their favorites from the collection, from Bob Rafelson’s Five Easy Pieces to Robert Bresson’s Au hasard Balthazar.
