Episode 202 – William Wyler’s The Heiress https://criterioncast.com/podcast/criterioncast-episodes/episode-202-the-heiress Thu, 29 Aug 2019 00:00:02 +0000 https://criterioncast.com/?p=61734

This time on the podcast, Trevor Berrett, Scott Nye, and David Blakeslee discuss William Wyler’s The Heiress.

Directed with a keen sense of ambiguity by William Wyler, this film based on a hit stage adaptation of Henry James’s Washington Square pivots on a question of motive. When shy, emotionally fragile Catherine Sloper (Olivia de Havilland, in a heartbreaking, Oscar-winning turn), the daughter of a wealthy New York doctor, begins to receive calls from the handsome spendthrift Morris Townsend (Montgomery Clift), she becomes possessed by the promise of romance. Are his smoldering professions of love sincere, as she believes they are? Or is Catherine’s calculating father (Ralph Richardson) correct in judging Morris a venal fortune seeker? A graceful drawing-room drama boasting Academy Award–winning costume design by Edith Head, The Heiress is also a piercing character study riven by emotional uncertainty and lacerating cruelty, in a triumph of classic Hollywood filmmaking at its most psychologically nuanced.

Episode 198 – A Conversation About DIANE, with Director Kent Jones https://criterioncast.com/podcast/criterioncast-episodes/episode-198-a-conversation-about-diane-with-director-kent-jones Sat, 23 Mar 2019 19:00:19 +0000 https://criterioncast.com/?p=60939

In this episode, David Blakeslee interviews director and film critic Kent Jones, a frequent contributor to the essays published by the Criterion Collection. His new film Diane, starring Mary Kay Place, won prizes at Tribeca and Locarno, and earned nominations at numerous festival showings in 2018. Diane is now set to open in theaters across the USA over the next several weeks. Here’s the synopsis from the film’s press kit:

For Diane (Mary Kay Place), everyone else comes first. Generous but with little patience for self-pity, she spends her days checking in on sick friends, volunteering at her local soup kitchen, and trying valiantly to save her troubled, drug-addicted adult son (Jake Lacy) from himself. But beneath her relentless routine of self-sacrifice, Diane is fighting a desperate internal battle, haunted by a past she can’t forget and which threatens to tear her increasingly chaotic world apart. Built around an extraordinary, fearless performance from Mary Kay Place, the narrative debut from Kent Jones is a profound, beautifully human portrait of a woman rifling through the wreckage of her life in search of redemption.
