Criterion Now – Episode 113 – January 2021 Announcements, Janus Theatrical Releases, Flash Sale

David Blakeslee and Trevor Berrett from CriterionCast and Inside the Box join to talk about the latest Criterion News. We begin with the intriguing and somewhat divisive January 2021 Criterion announcements. It turned out we had the perfect guests for this release slate. We then talk about the flash sale, and this episode was recorded prior to the announcement. We also talked about Janus Films theatrical screenings and what that could mean for potential disc releases in the future.

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.
