Brad McDermott and Josh Hornbeck join to recap a lot of interesting interesting events over the last month. We begin by discussing the December 2020 Criterion announcements, and we then talk about some titles that were not announced but are being released theatrically. After the NYTimes article about the lack of diversity in the collection, we each recommended some films from black directors for the collection. We also talk about the passing of Jiri Menzel, the complete Agnes Varda, flash sale speculation, and more.
