Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

In for Rebecca and Certain Women.

Love Reichardt. I own all of her films except for her debut, River of Grass, which I've never seen. But intend of purchasing blind.

Certain Women was a hard one to grade though. The segment with Michelle Williams was bland and utterly useless. I can't think of a single reason to justify its existence. It was awful. I'd rate it 2.5/5. The Laura Dern segment was very good, very compelling. Laura Dern gives a great performance as usual. I give it a solid 4/5. The segment with Kristen Stewart and Lily Gladstone is the best piece of filmmaking I've seen in a good 5-6 years. It was breathtaking, poignant and utterly heartbreaking. An easy 5/5. Even though I like the Laura Dern segment quite a bit, I just wish there was a way they could have stretched the Lily/Kristen segment into like a 75 minute feature.

So its kind of hard to rate the entire film as a whole. Its a definite purchase for me. But its sort of a fractured film. Its a shame they couldn't have done something better with Michelle Williams.

I think I have Rebecca digitally. Never saw it, but think that's enough...
