Criterion Now – Episode 142 – May 2022 Announcements, Miller’s Crossing, Pink Flamingos

Drew Morton joins again, and we have a lot to talk about. Come for the Criterions, stay for his Jimmy Stewart impressions. We discuss the May 2022 Announcements, and then dive into numerous big topics. We talk at length about the Criterion edition of Miller’s Crossing and how it differs from previous versions. We also talk about Pink Flamingos since it is all but confirmed. And there’s so much more, from Drive My Car getting Oscar nominations, to Paul Schrader’s Facebook, to Neil Young’s rotoscoped booger.

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.
