Criterion Now – Episode 8 – Assassination of Jesse James, Before Sunset, Mildred Pierce

Aaron is joined by Doug McCambridge and Jamieson McGonigle. Jamieson talks about his Jesse James revival screenings and makes the case for a Criterion release. We go further into the Before Trilogy, touching on Before Sunset, and we explore Curtiz’s Mildred Pierce, which is sort of a noir and sort of not, and we get into a number of rumors about potential releases.
