More information has become available from Frank Ocean‘s limited Boys Don’t Cry magazine, as this new excerpt details some of the R&B singer’s favorite flicks. As you may already know, the limited print mag was released in conjunction with Ocean’s new Blonde album that released over the weekend at random pop-up shops around the world. This one page was dedicated to all the films that inspired him, including photos from each. The list is quite vast, but several directors were repeated quite often including Quentin Tarantino, Paul Thomas Anderson, Werner Herzog, Wong Kar-wei, David Lynch, the Coen Brothers, and Stanley Kubrick. Check it below.
