Criterion Now – Episode 34 – The Music Geek Episode, Festival

Aaron is joined by David Blakeslee and Matt Gasteier as they take a detour from Criterion to talk about art music in general. We tie it to the label by doing a bracket challenge for the best Criterion music on disc, but we also talk about our personal experiences and tastes in music, and have a short debate about whether rock is dead. We include some Criterion news and FilmStruck, including Peter Becker’s interview and some recent OOP titles on streaming.
