Criterion Now – Episode 126 – September 2021 Announcements, Citizen Kane Rumors, Nathan Lane

Martin Kessler is back. Long time listeners may remember him planting the seed for Van Peebles’ Story of a Three Day Pass. Well it finally happened, and I was honored to have him back to talk about this incredible box set. We also discuss the remainder of the September announcements. We spend a good bit of time unpacking the Citizen Kane rumors. We adore Nathan Lane. Finally we discuss some former Criterions that are ending up at other labels, and some new titles coming to Criterion.

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.
