A yearly overview of the clues of upcoming titles provided by Criterion and Jason Polan in the monthly newsletter. Proudly pun-ful, characteristically corny, and always awaited with bated breath.
Wacky in 2010 saw some true standouts in both content and clues. The Eclipse/Oshima clue deserves a standing ‘O,’ the Crumb clue is ballsy since Robert himself probably wouldn’t like to see Fritz the Cat used to promote it, and the Broadcast Gnus are so goofy that I still laugh about them to this day. Also some of the last clues to promote Blu releases as if they were a bit of a rarity. Plus the first appearance of the big, skinny cat that would come back years later in a different hue for some fantastic Errol Morris.
