Wacky 2014

WACKY
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.


Another year and portent Polan’s passel of proficient puns continue to portend prodigious physical product. The return of the skinny cat heralds more Morris, Almodóvar finally makes it into the 5-inch collection, and Monte suffers for his art being compared to whipped eggs. 2014 also brings us the oft-discussed, never-proven (until now) double clue with a fine set of colorful chevals. Combine that with the dual Hellmans and the 2014 newsletters gave us a total of 14 films for our guessing pleasure.
