Alec Baldwin’s favorite Alexander Payne movie? It’s no contest: Citizen Ruth.

“Every couple of years you have to watch Citizen Ruth to remind yourself of bravery in acting,” Baldwin says in the exclusive video below. The star is the latest celebrity to participate in Tribeca Shortlist, a new streaming VOD service that features more than 150 films as curated by “industry experts including actors, directors, producers, insiders and influencers.”

Baldwin joins John Leguizamo, Morgan Spurlock, Matthew Modine, Jason Blum, Kelly LeBrock, and more on the platform, and used his time to promote the 1996 comedy-drama that put Payne on the map and featured a revelatory star turn from Laura Dern.
