Criterion Reflections – Episode 29 – Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s The American Soldier

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. 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.
