Criterion Reflections – Episode 32 – Jean-Pierre Melville’s Le cercle rouge

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 William Remmers and Trevor Berrett to discuss Le cercle rouge, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville.
