The Foreign Flicks Lindsey Lambillotte Thinks You Should Watch Right Now
When she’s not traveling between her home in Queens and that of her sister-slash-business partner Suzan’s in Texas, Lindsey Lambillotte is likely spending some Q.T. with her Netflix account. But, instead of settling into Fast Times at Ridgemont High, the designer behind the just-preppy, ridiculously polished clothing line that bears her last name prefers to string together a marathon of foreign faves. She needs the subtitles, though: “I graduated with Spanish Honor Society cords,” Lindsey explains. “But I cheated the whole way through it, which was probably harder to do than to actually learn Spanish.” Here, her recs, for your viewing pleasure.
"I had this one—which is basically a mafia movie—sitting in my queue for a while because it didn’t sound that great. But it’s not a typical mafia movie, and Tahar Rahim, the actor who plays the main character, is great. I think I’m still trying to wrap my head around his character’s complexities. Definitely worth a re-watch."
"One of my movie-connoisseur friends recommended this South Korean movie to me. I’d tell you what it’s about, but I’d probably ruin it for you. If you want to see the most disturbing movie that you’ll keep thinking about forever, this is it!"
"My British brother-in-law recommended this British sitcom to me. It’s equal parts ridiculously stupid and hilariously smart—and perfect to watch with friends."
Anything Pedro Almodóvar
“This Spanish film screenwriter and director is my favorite: I particularly love Volver, Bad Education, Talk to Her, and All About My Mother. His characters, which are always thrown into life-altering situations, are always really strong, rich, and passionate.”
