The series began in 2009 and those essays (covering the years 1921-1967) can be found via the website link provided below. In March 2016, the blog transferred to this site, and in August 2017, the blog changed over to a podcast format. David also contributes to other reviews and podcasts on this site.

  • Thanks, and I agree! A re-release of PLF would make many people happy (and probably disappoint those hoarders and speculators who haven’t sold their copies yet.) It’s so crazy that Studio Canal/LionsGate won’t release it in the USA themselves, if they won’t allow Criterion to regain the rights.

  • Most everything on the wish list already has an excellent BD available.

    How about a wonderful film missing for too long from Blu like “Local Hero?”
