Josh and Benny Safdie’s Closet Picks

Inside Criterion / Closet Picks — Sep 11, 2017

With five feature films under their belt, including the indie hits Daddy Longlegs, Heaven Knows What, and the heart-stopping new crime thriller Good Time, New York–based directors Josh and Benny Safdie have won acclaim for their distinctively anarchic, emotionally charged style, one that bears the influence of their eclectic love of film history. Last month, the brothers stopped by the Criterion office for a trip inside our closet and shared some of the titles that have meant the most to them, including Mike Leigh’s Meantime, Ermanno Olmi’s Il posto, and Robert Bresson’s A Man Escaped.
