Wim Wenders Visits “The Criterion Closet”
these videos, in which cinema icons squeeze into Criterion’s storage room and pilfer their favorite titles, are always a right bit of fun, but — and i haven’t fact-checked this, so i’m taking a bit of gamble, here — i think this is the first such video in which one Criterion filmmaker tells an epic story about the time he chortled with another Criterion filmmaker while the two of them peed side-by-side. it’s times like these that i really regret not having a staff of interns.
p.s. get used to having Wim Wenders around, cause you’re going to be hearing his name a lot this year…
