No, I’m not going to tell you what it is. That will take all the fun out of it. And require me to write an extra sentence, which is total bullshit.

In documenting the late, seminal director’s favorite works, the holier-than-thou Criterion Collection posted this list.

Here they are without commentary: Eraserhead, Citizen Kane, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The Godfather, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Dog Day Afternoon, City Lights, La Notte, Roxie Hart, Hell’s Angels, An American Werewolf in London, Metropolis, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Abigail’s Party, Roger & Me, White Men Can’t Jump, Modern Romance, and The Jerk.

Okay. Screw the “no commentary” part. What did he like about White Men Can’t Jump? I pray to the god of all things funny and weird that it was Rosie Perez’ performance. (The Criterion Collection)
