Best of Criterion’s Releases, February 2017

mildredpierce633x356

Instead of talking about the Oscars, let’s talk about The Criterion Collection’s excellent slate of February releases, including Kirsten Johnson’s Cameraperson, which deserved at least a nomination in the Documentary category (but of course could never have gotten one, because it is not in any way an AMPAS film). For me, it’s all about Mildred Pierce, the kind of classic that nearly makes me yearn for “the good old days” of the movies. It’s awesome. Go read what I had to say about it, and what my colleagues had to say about everything else, over at Paste Magazine.
