Criterion Now – Episode 118 – May 2021 Announcements, Eric Rohmer, Satyajit Ray

Josh Wilson joins the podcast for the first time. He is an avid Orson Welles enthusiast and this has been a long time coming even if we did not have much Welles to discuss. We got into the May 2021 Announcements, the flash sale (although this was recorded before it was announced, and we take about upcoming films such as Ikarie XB-1, Eric Rohmer’s Four Seasons, Miracle in Milan. We also plant the seeds for hopefully the next big box set — Satyajit Ray 100.

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.
