Criterion Reflections – Episode 60 – Pier Paolo Pasolini’s The Decameron

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 features 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 is joined by Josh Hornbeck, Brad McDermott and Steven Johnson to discuss The Decameron, directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini.
