Bong Joon-Ho Snowpiercer

With "Snowpiercer" now playing, Bong Joon-ho is doing the rounds in support of the film, but he took a few moments while in New York City to stop by The Criterion Collection and do what we've all dreamed of doing—grabbing as many copies of their releases as he can.

As always, it's fun stuff to see what catches the eye of filmmakers, and Bong Joon-Ho is no different. Works by directors as varied as Nagisa Oshima, Yasujiro Ozu, Guillermo Del Toro and Roman Polanski grab his attention, and so too does Haskell Wexler's "Medium Cool," which Bong Joon-Ho reveals he loaned to Park Chan-Wook... who never gave it back. That's just bad manners. Watch below. [The Criterion Collection]
