This month, Hedi Slimane, the artistic director of Celine, picked out nine of his favorite movies on MUBI.  The entertainment service has a selection of silent, arthouse, and classic movies you’d be hard-pressed to find in good quality, even if your skills in finding those underground sources gets a five-star rating.
