Streamers: Home Viewing Recommendations from Tilda Swinton & Paul Thomas Anderson

Since the quarantine has begun, many of us have been watching more films on television at home. Naturally, all of us are eager to get back into Cinemas but we can’t just yet. So, we have been posting some streaming recommendations on Mondays from some of our pals in the film community. In the meantime, many others have posted such lists so we figured it was a good time to aggregate some of these for easier reference. We’ll have more of these next Monday. Enjoy.


Tilda Swinton submitted a selection to the BFI. Check out her comments on each in the original article.
