Criterion Now – Episode 104 – Jason Polan, May 2020 Announcements, Parasite, Netflix

Criterion Now returns after a brief hiatus. David Blakeslee and Will Remmers join to discuss as much that happened since the last episode as possible, with a focus on recent developments. We discuss the May 2020 announcements and briefly run through all of the announcements that we missed. We also talk about Jason Polan’s passing, who we’ll miss dearly in more ways that we can express. We discuss the Netflix and Neon deals that have announced Criterion titles that are coming in the future. Mostly we are glad to be back talking film with good friends.

I am a somewhat educated Criterion dork, with a History and Film Studies bachelor's degree and plenty of self-education over the years. My tastes are all over the map. Probably my favorite is 1930s French Poetic Realism, but I like everything from noir, to animation, to horror, westerns, and modern film. Usually I prefer film that challenges and requires something of the viewer.
