Criterion Now – Episode 138 – March 2022 Announcements, Janus Acquisitions, Rumors

Brad McDermott joins to talk with Jill and Aaron about a lot of Criterion news that we had missed with our last few episodes. We begin with the March 2022 Announcements, many of which were a total surprise. We also talk about some of the rumors, whether they are valid or otherwise, and cheer the acquisitions that Janus has made for films contending for awards and top 10 lists.

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.
