Re: 2018 Criterion Challenge Discussion Thread

Thanks. I'm recuperating. It's a messy process. I watched Fishing with John a few years back during another of these challenges and got a kick out of it. I hate fishing, so for that show to have...

Re: 2018 Criterion Challenge Discussion Thread

I've been meaning to see that for awhile now. It came to my attention when I went through a Jewel phase. I'm not even entirely sure why I got away from her music, as it's not like I stopped enjoying...

Re: 2018 Criterion Challenge Discussion Thread

PEOPLE. I got to see Persona at the Speed Art Museum here in Louisville tonight. If I'd had my pick of any Bergman film--or even any film in the Criterion library--to see on the big screen, this...

Re: 2018 Criterion Challenge Discussion Thread

Even aside from its content being reexamined, I do believe that The Breakfast Club merits inclusion in the Criterion library. It's a touchstone of movies that spoke to--and for--an entire generation....

Re: 2018 Criterion Challenge Discussion Thread
