A few weeks ahead of our Blu-ray upgrade of Robert Altman’s Short Cuts hitting stores, one of the film’s stars paid a visit to our film closet. While making his picks, Oscar-winning actor and director Tim Robbins shared his memories of first seeing Altman’s Nashville as a teenager, an experience that introduced him to the mischievous spirit he would later enjoy in his collaborations with the great director. Check out Robbins’s selections in the video above, and look for him to appear on the big screen soon in the sci-fi drama Marjorie Prime, the latest project from frequent Criterion contributor Michael Almereyda.
