Criterion Now – Episode 108 – August 2020 Announcements, Agnes Varda, Satyajit Ray

Trevor Berrett from The Mookse and the Gripes and CriterionCast joins to talk about the latest bit of news from Criterion. What a big month it is! We have a solid August 2020 announcement slate which includes the complete works of Agnes Varda. We dive into those, and Trevor provides a lot of insights into Town Bloody Hall and others. We also talk about Company, some discovered prints from Satyajit Ray, Pandora’s box, and more.

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.
