Other than hanging out at Columbia University’s Dodge Hall or stalking the streets of the West Village where Howl is being filmed, Criterion has provided another venue through which to access James Franco (sort of). The sensitive actor/writer/artist/student has listed his top ten movie titles from Criterion (he has every title in their collection!). With this list in mind you might want to re-strategize your “accidental” path-crossing with Mr. Franco. Perhaps you will have luck at The Film Society of Lincon Center, Film Forum or Anthology Film Archives.
