Criterion Reflections – Episode 7 – Autumn 1969 Part 1

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 features panel conversations and 1:1 interviews offering insights on movies that premiered in a particular season of a year in the past, which were destined to eventually bear the Criterion imprint. In this episode, David is joined by Jon Laubinger, Matt Gasteier,  and William Remmers to discuss four titles from the Autumn of 1969: Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Katzelmacher, Eric Rohmer’s My Night at Maud’s, Barbet Schroeder’s More and Sergei Paradjanov’s The Color of Pomegranates.
