Every year we break out of the normal Criterion Collection journey for a special end of year episode watching a non-Criterion film that takes place at Christmas for no discernible reason. We've done Die Hard, Die Harder, and Lethal Weapon the past few years. As always we're joined by dear friends -- that's important this time of year -- and this time around frequent guest Stephen Goldmeier and award-winning journalist Andrew Tobias join us in watching Christmas-fetishist Shane Black's 2005 directorial debut Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. It's really fun.
It's been a good year on Lost in Criterion. We kicked things off with the Collection introducing us to the masterful comedy of Jacques Tati, we sat in awe of Carl Th. Dreyer, and we were generally disappointed by the collaborations of David O. Selznick and Alfred Hitchcock. We laughed and cried with the Czech New Wave, and broke into the 21st Century with some frankly brilliant films.
Thanks for listening! Have a wonderful end of the year (of the Gregorian calendar, at least) however you celebrate it! We'll see you next year with our regularly scheduled Lost-ness.
