Criterion Reflections – Episode 111 – Maurice Pialat’s We Won’t Grow Old Together

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 Jason Beamish and David Seeley to discuss We Won’t Grow Old Together, directed by Maurice Pialat. We Won’t Grow Old Together has been featured on The Criterion Channel streaming service in the past, but was not available on that platform at the time this episode was recorded and published.
