Criterion Files

Criterion FilesIf the Criterion Collection devotes itself to “important classic and contemporary films,” the obvious followup question would be, “What makes each of these films in the collection important?” That’s exactly what Adam Charles and Landon Palmer investigate each week in Criterion Files. Every Wednesday, Criterion Files examines a film in the collection, and assesses its importance and worth based on its place in history, its influence on cinema and society, its place within a director’s body of work, or anything else that may make it important and worth watching. Criterion Files is the place to understand why essential cinema is essential.
