Episode 88 – Jane Campion’s Sweetie

This is the podcast dedicated to The Criterion Collection. Ryan Gallagher  and  James McCormick  are joined by Melissa Molina from Latino Review to  discuss Criterion Collection news & rumors and new releases. They also discuss Criterion # 356, Jane Campion’s 1989 film, Sweetie.


Though she went on to create a string of brilliant films, Jane Campion will always be remembered for her stunning debut feature, Sweetie, which focuses on the hazardous relationship between the buttoned-down, superstitious Kay and her rampaging, devil-may-care sister, Sweetie’”and on their family’s profoundly rotten roots. A feast of colorful photography and captivating, idiosyncratic characters, the tough and tender Sweetie heralded the emergence of this gifted director, as well as a renaissance of Australian cinema, which would take the film world by storm in the nineties.
