  1. The Ascent is a great film. Ranked high on the 100 greatest films by female directors that the BBC released last year. Larisa Shepitko sadly passed away at a young age.

  2. Nightmare Alley was just announced as a May Criterion release! I’m sure it will get a lot of interest since Del Toro’s adaptation will be in theaters(hopefully) in December.
