Barry Jenkins’s Closet Picks

Inside Criterion / Closet Picks — Jan 24, 2017


Back in November, director Barry Jenkins stopped by Criterion for a visit while in New York promoting his sophomore feature,
Moonlight. The film has already received dozens of honors this award season, and during this morning’s announcement of the Oscar nominations, it racked up eight more, including nods for best director and best picture. As a companion to Jenkins’s recent appreciation of Wong Kar-wai in our Under the Influence series, we’re sharing this video of his trip to our closet, in which he chats about favorite films like Andrew Haigh’s Weekend, Lynne Ramsay’s Ratcatcher, and Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Dekalog.
