Watch: Edgar Wright Makes His Selections From The Criterion Closet

The Criterion Collection has no shortage of great filmmakers in their rolodex (do people use those anymore?), and over the past little while, they’ve invited great directors, actors, and more to step into their coveted closet and talk about some of the boutique label’s great films, and take some of them home. We’ve seen the likes of William Friedkin, Mike Leigh, and Bong Joon-ho share their passion and love of cinema with Criterion, and Edgar Wright is the latest to smuggle some great DVDs home from the company.

In his visit, the director snapped up copies of the cult fave “Eyes Without A Face” (to give to his Dad), cult filmmaker Alex Cox‘s “Walker” (which Wright hasn’t yet seen), Akira Kurosawa‘s “Throne Of Blood” (which he only recently caught up with on the big screen), and the unassailable “Don’t Look Now.” Even though he’s a bit jet-lagged, once Wright gets going he has a lot of fun and fans will definitely want check this out.
