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 of Polan goodness. Mix 1 part amusement and 2 parts bemusement and you’ve got months of eyerolls and exciting info in equal measure. Bogart ignores his dishware. Mr. Ripper saves up for a rainy day. Someone pokes a monk and that’s not even a euphemism. Some animal lovers seem to point to a Morris doc, but that was already in the collection! A mock turtle helps mock up one of the finest covers for a quite fine flick. Junior gets lippy with his mother while a lot of buzz grew for more Linklater. A very old dog probably doesn’t live long enough to see more Rampling on the shelves. Hillary portends Hepburn and the fish rumble up some Coppola. Once again the New Year’s clue pops up before 1/1 giving us another year to scrutinize.
