On Criterion Close-Up we normally review Criterion Collection releases. This week we added a bonus episode we called Canadian Close-Up were we talked about the great country to our north in Canada, and we discussed two films in the Criterion Collection from Canadian filmmakers in David Cronenberg and Guy Maddin. We hope you enjoy our discussion, eh?
This podcast is part of the O Canada Blogathon organized by Kristina of Speakeasy and Ruth of Silver Screenings.
Mark and Aaron take a trip north to the wonderful world of Canada. This is a special, unscheduled episode to celebrate the O’ Canada Blogathon. We talk about all things Canadian, including our Canadian Connections, film and media culture from Canada, and two particular films from The Criterion Collection — Videodrome and My Winnipeg.
