Criterion Now – Episode 132 – December 2021 Announcements, Inland Empire, Francois Truffaut

Doug McCambridge from Good Times, Great Movies and Schitt’s and Giggles makes his grand return. We discuss the December 2021 Criterion release slate. We also pay tribute to some legends that we lost. Note that this was recorded prior to us hearing about Melvin Van Peeble’s passing. That will be covered on a later show. We talk about a lot of rumors, some of which are more likely than others. And finally, we plant the seeds for what we want to see in 2022 as a massive box set.

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.
