Criterion Now – Episode 38 – The Piano Teacher, Bergman 100, Herzog & Kinski

Aaron is joined by Jonathan Laubinger and Jordan Essoe to discuss The Piano Teacher and the latest in Criterion. We get into some predictions for the February 2018 releases, including going into our wish list. We also get excited about the possibility of the Bergman centennial tour and hopeful Criterion release. We spend a good bit of time dissecting The Piano Teacher and going through the week of FilmStruck including Herzog & Kinski, and the Greek Weird Wave.

Aaron West

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.
