Criterion Reflections – Episode 38 – Eric Rohmer’s Claire’s Knee

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 Matthew Gasteier and Derek J. Power to discuss Claire’s Knee, directed by Eric Rohmer.
