Criterion Now – Episode 86 – Newsletter, Cannes Classics, Wong Kar Wai

Michael Hutchins joins as the special guest as we do a remote episode in a hotel which appropriately features an interruption from housekeeping. We dissect what is perhaps the most perplexing newsletter clue in months, talk about the Cannes Classics lineup and what is and isn’t likely to come to Criterion, the potential of a Wong Kar Wai set given the 2020 retrospective confirmation, and plenty more. We also dig into the Criterion Channel and discuss the May lineup and system upgrades.
