Frank Ocean's return to music is marked by the singer's multi-media presentation which includes a visual album, Endless, and zine, Boys Don't Cry. On Monday (Aug. 22), it was reported that Ocean has a 140 hour version of Endless, making his affinity for film as art and experience clear, and in his accompanying zine he lists many of his favorite films.

The full list is included below, with Ocean listing multiple titles from such filmmakers as Quentin Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick, the Coen Brothers, Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and more. Only ATL, the 2006 movie starring T.I,. gets a note attached, the others receiving directors and/or years to clarify which version Frank prefers. As for Scarface, he lists the 1932 and 1983 versions. Read the transcribed list below with an image of Frank's list in his zine a bit further down.
