the safdie brothers' taste in cinema

i love these weirdos SO MUCH.
all the films mentioned by josh and benny in different interviews and on their socials.

it took ages to create this list and about two hundred films were taken from this one mubi.com/lists/safdie-brothers-favorite-films so many thanks to its creator. btw i'm curious how many percent have you watched so feel free to comment with your number.
and i'm still working on sorting 600+ posters by colors because i have no life 👌👌👌
