Each episode of this second season of the podcast features conversations with a variety of guests offering insights on movies that originally premiered in 1970 and were destined to eventually bear the Criterion imprint. In this episode, David is joined by Jason Beamish and Robert Taylor to discuss The American Soldier, directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
