Nigel Godrich is sort of a legend in the music business. The producer has worked with anyone who's anyone, including Radiohead (he may as well be the sixth member of the band), Sir Paul McCartney, U2 and R.E.M. And most recently he produced Crackle's new original series From the Basement, featuring performances from some of the most respected musicians in the industry.
This week, we're practically giddy because Nigel is picking his favorite movies on Crackle for our latest Celebrity Watchlist. His faves range from movies about music legends, such as Beastie Boys and Prince, to movies that take place outside the world of rock 'n' roll —in fact, movies out of this world altogether, like Moon and The Fifth Element.
Instructions to get started: Press play. Rock on.
