Let’s talk about Willem Dafoe – that actor whose voice and vibe bring some serious relief to our anxiety-filled lives. You might remember him from American Psycho as the persistent detective Donald Kimball, a grieving father in Anti-Christ, or Green Goblin in 2002's Spiderman. Regardless, his unique tone and that infectious smile have always won me over. And guess what? Criterion Collection lets us peek into his film preferences through their cool “Closet Picks” series.
While Criterion can sometimes seem a bit highbrow, these behind-the-scenes looks at an actor’s favorite flicks break down those fancy walls. Dafoe’s picks don’t just show us what he digs; they make Criterion’s collection feel less like a inner circle and more like a movie lover’s hangout.
