    Stoked for those. Do you happen to know what the current status is of the controversy around Paris is Burning?

    The Roma release opens up a lot of questions. Leaves the door open for a lot of other great potential titles (Happy as Lazzaro!) but I really don't know how much intermingling I want between these two companies tbh.

    I think same questions about a white cis woman profiting from trans poc and whether it's exploitative but nothing new

    I’m all for more Netflix and other streaming releases getting high quality physical releases. Or physical releases at all. That way the work isn’t entirely dependent on a service which might not be around forever.

    I haven't seen Paris is Burning yet but we're screening it in class next semester. This is one of the readings we'll be doing, which I assume addresses the question at hand, in some form.

    For sure, preserving these films on physical media is key. But given that Netflix has kinda shown a lack of regard for cinema as an art (despite funding and distributing films by major and important filmmakers) I'm definitely suspect of any affiliation w/ one of the brands actually doing good work on the front of preservation and circulation. (I also think Criterion's vision has changed over the last half-decade or so but I realize with the rapid decline in interest in physical media that they have to pander a little more than they used to.)

    Haven't seen the Spike Lee, so I'm very excited for that. I didn't love Leave Her to Heaven, but its fascinating because it's a film noir shot in Technicolor. The Blu-ray will surely be one of the best looking releases of the year.

    So the Netflix deal definitely goes beyond Roma. Amazing that The Irishman will get a nice physical release. Hope the Diop comes with some of her shorts because I think they are actually much stronger than Atlantics.

    Must buys for sure.

    I could think of a bunch more Scorsese films that deserve the CC treatment over The Irishman. That’s still cool though, don’t get me wrong.
     
  19. I feel like they'll never do Taxi Driver

    That one for sure deserves it but I feel like CC would do like Raging Bull or The King of Comedy over it.
