Criterion Now – Episode 40 – Othello, Alexander Payne, Tales of Hoffman

After a short break, Aaron returns with Will Remmers’ debut appearance. We discuss a lot of the news that we missed from the past few weeks, including potential Criterion titles like Hard Eight, Margaret, The Virgin Suicides, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. We get a little deeper into Orson Welles’ Othello and his final documentary, Filming Othello. Will is an opera expert, so a few topics are steered towards that topic and we briefly get into The Tales of Hoffman.
