Criterion Reflections – Episode 116 – Jacques Demy’s The Pied Piper

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 Robert Cioffi, Dan Humphrey and William Remmers to discuss The Pied Piper, directed by Jacques Demy. At the time this episode was recorded, The Pied Piper was not featured on the Criterion Channel, but was briefly available when that channel was hosted by FilmStruck back in 2018.
