Criterion Now 105: Coronavirus, Jim Jarmusch, Bruce Lee

Josh Hornbeck and Robert Taylor join ahead of the June announcements and take a moment to reflect on the life changing events that are going on. Coronavirus is impacting everyone and could transform the film industry. We talk about how it has impacted us, and what we can expect with the Criterion and cinephile world. More importantly, we concluded that outlets like film are a way to deal with this situation. We talk about the recent releases and rumors, and we keep it light when it comes to film suggestions.

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.
