Criterion Reflections – Episode 42 – A Ten-Year Retrospective

This episode is a solo recording of David’s reminiscence about the past decade of blogging and podcasting that he’s done under the Criterion Reflections banner. In January 2009, David began his chronological sequence of writing, and eventually talking, about all of the films in the Criterion Collection in the order of their original theatrical release. The approaching tenth anniversary of this project prompts a few thoughts to share with those who have read, listened and accompanied him along the way.
