Criterion Reflections – Episode 107 – Jean-Luc Godard & Jean-Pierre Gorin’s Tout va bien / Letter to Jane

Criterion Reflections is David Blakeslee’s ongoing project to watch all of the films included in the Criterion Collection in chronological order of their original release. This fourth season of the podcast features conversations about movies that originally premiered in 1972 and were destined to eventually receive the Criterion imprimatur. In this episode, David is joined by William Remmers, Derek J. Power and first-time guest Andrew Peirce to discuss Tout va bien and Letter to Jane, both directed by Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Pierre Gorin. This episode wraps up a three-part miniseries focused on Godard’s work between 1966 and 1972.
