The 4 Movies Miles Redd Wants You to Watch

April 7, 2020

One of Miles Redd’s biggest pleasures? Devouring the cinematic work of gifted auteurs. It takes one to know one! Here, the New York-based designer shares some of his favorite directors and flicks.

Marie Antoinette

“Often panned, but I find it visionary. Sofia Coppola captures the highs and lows of a life dictated by dress and ornamentation. It’s a delicious pale-pink confection.”

Wes Anderson

“His films are pure life-affirming joy. Every time I watch The Grand Budapest Hotel, I see something new.”

Purple Noon

“The original film adaptation of The Talented Mr. Ripley. It’s chillingly wicked, and stars Alain Delon at the height of his beauty in chic 1960s Paris.”

Alfred Hitchcock

“What a master of style! Rear Window, Vertigo, Rope, To Catch a Thief, they all have amazing sets. My favorite is Rebecca, for the boat house—all chintz, Chinese and chinchilla.”
