Criterion Reflections – Episode 43 – Season 3: 1971 Preview

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 third season of the podcast will feature conversations with a variety of guests offering insights on movies that originally premiered in 1971 and were destined to eventually bear the Criterion imprint. In this episode, David briefly introduces the titles currently in his queue that he’ll be reviewing in the months ahead. (Note: this list is not indicative of how the episodes will be sequenced.)
