Criterion Now – Episode 120 – June 2021 Announcements, Indicator Noir, Fredric March

Jill Blake joins and we get into an abundance of enjoyable topics. First we discuss her contributions to the Indicator Columbia Noir set. We then discuss the June 2021 Criterion announcements, Fredric March and Dorothy Arzner, the 2021 Oscars, the Wong Kar Wai packaging, Paramount’s new blu-ray releases and streaming channel, and finally one of the best Short Takes that we’ve had on the show.

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.
