Criterion Now – Episode 135 – January 2022 Announcements, David Fincher’s Voir, Indicator US

Jill and Aaron dig into a lot in this episode. We begin with the January 2022 announcements, which we agree is a good start to next year. From there we cover a wide variety of topics. We talk about the announcement from Netflix regarding David Fincher’s Voir project, and what that means for the visual essay format. We also talk about Indicator setting up shop in US and speculate about what that will like. We talk about the TCM Film Festival for 2022, the Arrow UHD version of Dune, our mutual adoration of Bob Hoskins, the Melvin Van Peebles boxset, Amadeus, Some Like it Hot, and plenty more.

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.
