Linklater’s Before Trilogy comes to Criterion
Love, dreams, and destiny
Screens Story  February 23, 2017, by Jessi Cape
"...Having classified the Before Trilogy as both a personal favorite and a mark of excellence in filmmaking, I jumped at the opportunity to write about the collector's set (finally) being released on Blu-ray for the Criterion Collection. Sitting down with the discs, analyzing the special feature conversations, and then rediscovering scenes already seared into my brain, however, reminded me how powerful these films are..."

'Night and the City' and 'Thieves Highway'
The artistic tragedy of Jules Dassin's being blacklisted in Hollywood after 1949's swiftly compelling 'Thieves' Highway' is leavened somewhat by the fact that the 94-year-old director is still around to partake in the contemporary celebration of his dashing noir oeuvre

Anything for John
The making of John Cassavetes' 'Love Streams,' as witnessed by Michael Ventura
Screens Story  August 14, 2014, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"..."John wouldn't have liked this, but Love Streams is a film that makes a lot more sense when you know a little about it." That's Austin Chronicle columnist Michael Ventura talking about John Cassavetes' next-to-last film, which was, effectively, the last of the director's releases that could be called "a John Cassavetes film." This long-out-of-circulation film from 1984 was released this week in a DVD/Blu-ray triple-disc restoration by the Criterion Collection ($39.95). Michael Ventura, who was on-set throughout the filming, provides the voiceover commentary, and among the package's many supplements is the hourlong documentary Ventura made about the production, "I'm Almost Not Crazy ..." – John Cassavetes: The Man and His Work...."

Such Great Heights
The agony and ecstasy of Powell and Pressburger pictures
Screens Story  June 11, 2010, by Kimberley Jones
"...In the post-war years, Powell and Pressburger made two masterpieces, Black Narcissus (1947) and The Red Shoes (1948). (Despite Michael Atkinson's memorable claim in The Village Voice that their composed film The Tales of Hoffman "could seduce a eunuch," I find it overcomposed to the point of fussiness.) Both films screen in Austin this summer, and the Criterion Collection will reissue the films on July 20, newly restored to shockingly good looks..."

The Battle of AlgiersAlso Out Now The Battle of Algiers
In the wake of this country's most recent exercise in colonialism, Criterion has released, on three DVDs, Gillo Pontecorvo's 1966 masterpiece, a film so rich in aesthetic and political relevance as to be almost uncanny
Screens Review  November 5, 2004, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...In the wake of this country's most recent exercise in colonialism, the Criterion Collection has released, on three DVDs, Gillo Pontecorvo's 1966 masterpiece, The Battle of Algiers, a film so rich in aesthetic and political relevance as to be almost uncanny. Telling the story of the Arab insurgency in French-controlled Algiers in the 1950s, the film is at once explosive and elegiac, exploring in the most direct terms the violence and moral ambiguity endemic to a system of colonial rule and the confusion of despair and hope that guides the lives of colonized people, both in Algeria and around the world...."
