Criterion Now – Episode 96 – Odorama

Dave Eves joins and we have a little fun with the recent release of Polyester and specifically the Odorama card. This is truly a unique film, and subsequently a unique release for Criterion. We discuss the best way to watch the film, answer questions about the experience, and talk about each of the smells. You could call it a smellebration.

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.
