Being John Malkovich
This is one of my favorite films of all time. This film really showed me that we can still push the limits while telling a great story.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Now another one of my all-time favorites. Who doesn’t want a bangin’ red convertible and a suitcase full of drugs? I’M IN.
Do the Right Thing
Beautiful film, great transfer, makes me miss New York every time I watch it.
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
Wes Anderson really used everything he had in this one. All the things that make him such an amazing, unique filmmaker come to life.
One of those films every film lover has to watch at some point. Amazing storytelling.
The Seventh Seal
I’ve always been fascinated by the beyond. This film explores life and death in a way that has been imitated since its release.
Rémy Belvaux, André Bonzel, and Benoit Poelvoorde
Man Bites Dog
“CINEMAAAAAA . . . CINEMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.”
Terry Gilliam again, one of the best to ever do it. I think this film blew people’s minds when it came out. I wish I’d been able to see this one in a theater.
By Brakhage: An Anthology, Volume One
Crazy-ass experimental filmmaker who has given me plenty of ideas for my own personal work. This collection was put together beautifully, with the attention to all the fine details that it deserves.
Beastie Boys Video Anthology
The sounds, the videos, the different audio options and mixes. This is one of the greatest video compilations around!
