One of the best Criterion Specific Movie Podcasts

I love the chronological format, and David is a mad genius. I feel like I am getting some pretty good insight into this fraught time (late 60s), which also give me insight into our current time. Thanks David! Also, thanks for having on Jordan Essoe, who is just dreamy.

Simply unbearable

I am stunned by how often your guests do not like these great works of art. The two episodes that have pushed me beyond my limits were “Death in Venice” and “Klute”. I find it so disappointing that there are hours of in-depth analysis of many great films and yet you do not select people that appreciate them. Instead you select shallow and idiotic critics that are self-absorbed. David I know you put a lot of work and devotion into these podcasts but I really cannot bear to listen to another one.

David is a true inspiration.

I’ve known David for almost ten years now and he is truly inspirational in his commitment to the project of reviewing the films of the Criterion Collection in chronological order. This latest iteration of his project is a real treat for anyone looking to expand on their knowledge and understanding of the history of cinema.
