Criterion Now – Episode 94 – November 2019 Announcements, Teal Ray, Olympic Films

Jill Blake and Matt Gasteier join as we get to announcements beyond spine 1000 and found many surprises in the Fall lineup with a stellar Bette Davis duo and more. We also take on the idea of “Teal Ray” which is a phrase we’ve coined based on the continual complaints about teal hues in new transfers. Jill especially has some strong words about that subject. We also talk about Olympic films, gateways into foreign auteurs, Koker Trilogy, and more.

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.
