Criterion Now – Episode 23 – Talking Criterions with Sean Baker

Aaron and Mark talk Criterion and art films with Sean Baker, director of Tangerine, The Florida Project, Starlet, Prince of Broadway, Take Out, and creator of Greg the Bunny. Sean is not only a great director, but he’s a huge cinephile and Criterion fan. We had a great time talking about his work and influences, his trip into the Criterion closet, and sharing wish lists of great directors we’d like to see on home media.

I am a somewhat educated Criterion dork, with a History and Film Studies bachelor's degree and plenty of self-education over the years. My tastes are all over the map. Probably my favorite is 1930s French Poetic Realism, but I like everything from noir, to animation, to horror, westerns, and modern film. Usually I prefer film that challenges and requires something of the viewer.
