It never hurts to get recommendations from people with professionally good taste. A fine example: Celine’s artistic director, Hedi Slimane. After crossing music buff and scent connoisseur off the taste-making checklist, the designer is adding cinema aficionado. He’s now curated a selection of films to watch through an online streaming service made for art-house-film lovers called Mubi.
The list includes the kinds of films you’d want to bring up at a dinner party to show off your exceptional taste. Four of them are available to stream through May 31 with a 30-day free trial: Laurence Anyways by Xavier Dolan, Night Tide by Curtis Harrington, Charade by Stanley Donen, and Le Cercle Rouge by Jean-Pierre Melville. The other six films on his list aren’t available to stream in the United States, but you could get crafty and find them elsewhere.
