Happy New Year everyone! As usual, Criterion just unveiled their annual Wacky New Years Drawing.

We’ll try to break down what the various pieces might mean, and I’ll turn the comments on for this post, if you’d like to chime in. I’ll be updating this post throughout the day, so check back in if it looks like something is missing.
