Two friends talk about cinema and the Criterion Collection.
Yeah, it's another podcast.
The Criterion Chat #58 - The Royal Tenenbaums
In this episode, Nate and Matt discuss Wes Anderson's 2001 classic "The Royal Tenenbaums." How interesting! How bizarre!
The Criterion Chat #57 - The Killing of a Chinese Bookie
In this episode, Nate and Matt discuss John Cassavetes' overlooked neo-noir "The Killing of a Chinese Bookie," released in 1976 and 1978.
The Criterion Chat #56 - The Silence
In this episode, Nate and Matt close out Ingmar Bergman's Faith Trilogy with a discussion on "The Silence," released in 1963.
The Criterion Chat #55 - The Tree of Life
In this episode, Nate and Matt attempt to climb Terrence Malick's 2011 opus "The Tree of Life."
The Criterion Chat #54 - The Irishman
Two quasi-elderly men discuss the misadventures of truly elderly men in Martin Scorsese's sprawling "The Irishman," released in 2019. Pull over for a smoke break.
The Criterion Chat #53 - Christmas Wish List #5
In this annual episode, Nate and Matt choose one classic and one contemporary film they would like to see included in the Criterion Collection. Will their wishes come true? Will they survive 2020? Will they continue to toil in obscurity? Time will tell.
One of the Better Criterion Podcasts
I collect Criterion films, so am always on the hunt for Criterion-related podcasts. Criterion Chat is one of the better Criterion podcasts available. The discussion/analysis is intelligent and researched, and the hosts sound professional (i.e., no vocal fry or overuse of the word "like"). Recommend the Criterion Chat whether or not you are a collector.
Insightful and Enjoyable
Matt and Nate clearly have a deep love, knowledge, and respect for film and their discussions on this podcast are always insightful and enjoyable.
