He has ...…
 
You all don’t know this, but this is Pat and I’s first recorded episode in about six weeks and I’m so glad we have Equinox to take that blow. Equinox is two films, the first made by a bunch of kids who would grow up to be the best visual effects artists in American film, the second sold to Jack Harris with additional footage shot by Jack Woods. ...…

When I first saw that our agenda with the Collection was bringing us another film about a teenage girl’s sexual discovery I was…nervous. We talk about those nerves quite a bit this week, but Molly Haskell’s essay included with the release goes a long way to qualm those fears and explain why they are, for once, perhaps unfounded. Maurice Pialat’ ...…

Luhnow is immensely knowledgeable, and he imparts his knowledge in clear, balanced terms. Though an American, he was born and raised in Mexico. His brother Jeff has an interesting job, and he's very good at it: ge ...…
 
Slacker was one of our favorite films we’ve done for Lost in Criterion, but Richard Linklater’s follow-up Dazed and Confused’s marketing as a stoner comedy meant we know a lot of people who love the movie whose opinions we find suspect. Though, to be fair, a lot of people we know whose opinions should be trusted also like the movie. Anyway, we ...…

Sponsored by Quip All eyes are on Venezuela -- to the extent they're on Latin America at all. But spare a glance for Nicaragua. The Nicaraguans are going through hell right now as the dictator, Daniel Ortega, has cracked down hard. He has made a special villain out of Felix Maradiaga -- Jay's guest on this "Q&A." The regime has good reason to f ...…
 
Sponsored by Quip Asma Khalifa is a young woman from Libya -- a Berber. She is also a human-rights activist and democracy leader. She is one of Jay's favorite people. He says he considers her a heroine. Jay recorded this "Q&A" with her in Mexico City, where she was participating in a meeting of the Oslo Freedom Forum. During the Libyan Civil Wa ...…

After our run of later period, more biographical Louis Malle films a few weeks ago we swing back with his first feature length, which is a different sort of master work than Au Revoir les Enfants but still sticks with me. Elevator to the Gallows, or Lift to the Scaffold as the British (and Pat) demand to call it, is a noir murder with a bit of ...…

Jumping on a train from the aptly named Terminal Station, Tom & Chris arrive in West Germany finding themselves following the exploits of a married woman making a life for herself and her imprisoned husband, an ageing movie star (and the reporter uncovering her dark secret) and a straight laced building inspector duped into an unexpected romance.…
 
Sponsored by Quip In an earlier episode, Jay talked with Charles Hill. Now he talks with another Grand Strategist at Yale, Professor John Lewis Gaddis, who is best known for Cold War history. His biography of George F. Kennan won the Pulitzer Prize. Jay talks with him about Kennan, of course -- and about Paul Nitze and many another Cold War fig ...…
 
Barbara Kopple’s Harlan County, USA provides us with a lot of talking points about Pat’s family history (and Appalachian geography’s effects on politics), the Anthropology version of the observer effect (and when keeping your subjects alive means breaking cardinal documentary rules), and what exactly constitutes a living wage (when income well ...…

He is especially known for Grand Strategy. In previous times, he was an aide to Kissinger, Shultz, and, at the United Nations, Boutros-Ghali. With Jay, he talks about ...…
 
Marco Bellocchio’s 1965 film is open to interpretation, so this week we spend the episode suggesting, then dismantling, various interpretive theories.

Sponsored by Quip Jay does a sportscast -- but with a twist at the end: a discussion of Star Wars, Star Trek, etc., with two experts on the subject: David French and Sopan Deb. David is one of Jay's regular sports gurus, and so is Vivek Dave. They are both present. Sopan is a ringer, a guest guru: a writer for the New York Times, a stand-up com ...…
 
Tom and Chris are baffled and bored with the company they find themselves with while sitting around a train station. They get caught up in an average affair between an Italian scholar and an American wife trying to decide if she should follow her head or her heart.
 
Otto Reich is a former U.S. ambassador to Venezuela. He's also one of Jay's favorite people. They talk about the current crisis: where it stands, how it developed, and what might happen next. Join the conversation and comment on this podcast episode: https://ricochet.com/podcast/q-and-a/venezuela-now/. Podcast listeners: Now become a Ricochet m ...…
 
Luis Bunuel attacks the Catholic church by attacking the concept of personal charity? Listen, Bunuel is a complicated guy, but this is not a mistake that is unique to him so I need to say this outside the podcast (and, repeatedly, inside the podcast): he is right, personal charity will not change systematic problems that stem from economic ineq ...…

After well over a year we are finally finishing Yasujiro Ozu’s Noriko Trilogy with the first in the series, Late Spring. While Early Summer remains our favorite of the bunch, Late Spring serves as a more overt reckoning with Ozu’s view of post-war Japanese society. It is rather different than, say, Suzuki’s. As such we have a talk about false n ...…

Tom & Chris start the new year with the return of their friend Colleen, as the three make their way through the streets of Rome with an elderly gentleman and his dog trying to make sense of the changing world around them and find their place within it.
 
Eric Edelman is one of our top diplomats (retired though he may be) and one of our top foreign-policy thinkers. In a long career, he was ambassador to Finland and ambassador to Turkey. Before that, he was an assistant to George P. Shultz. Some years before that, he was a doctoral student at Yale, writing about post-war Italy. Jay reviews some p ...…
 
We cover the final film in the 3 Films by Louis Malle boxset this week with his 1987 magnum opus Au revoir les enfants. Before we recorded Pat and I established a rule that if at any point we start openly weeping I’d just edit that out. I think I got most of it. Au revoir les enfants provides much more context to the previous two films autobiog ...…

Sponsored by Quip Megha Rajagopalan is a foreign correspondent for BuzzFeed News. She is one of Jay's favorite reporters. She grew up in Maryland, and for years reported from China. She is now in the Middle East. She and Jay talk mainly about China: the pleasures and perils of reporting from there; the mass round-up of the Uyghurs; the ability ...…
 
Sponsored by Quip Peter Wood is the president of the National Association of Scholars. He is also an anthropologist. Jay is an old anthro major. So, they talk anthro major to anthro major, so to speak. What happened to this once-proud field? They also talk about higher education. And lower education. And online education, for college students. ...…
 
We move from a Louis Malle film we did not at all understand last week into one that we seem to get on a deeper level than a lot of critics and, frankly, that concerns me. Lacombe, Lucien is the tale of a lost young man searching for meaning and belonging who finds himself falling in with Nazi collaborators. The critics not understanding certai ...…

Tom & Chris ring in the new year by taking a little break from the collection to discuss some of the new films from 2018 they enjoyed.
 
In a sportscast, Jay asks David French and Vivek Dave about last night's championship game - Alabama vs. Clemson. Or should that be Clemson vs. Alabama? They also debate the college-football playoff system: Should more teams be involved? Later, there is talk of the NFL - including the dreaded double doink (a field-goal attempt that doinks once, ...…
 
Michael Rubin is a wide-ranging authority on the Middle East, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. In this "Q&A," Jay simply picks his brain: about Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. Rubin has a lot to say, and he says it very, very clearly. At the beginning, Jay asks him about his background: Rubin grew ...…
 
We kick off a boxset of films by Louis Malle that are variously autobiographical, and we may have the quickest turnaround from “I hate this film” to “this later film has recontextualized an earlier one and now I maybe like that one more” in our entire run of Lost in Criterion. That is to say, neither Pat nor I really enjoyed Murmur of the Heart ...…

Whit Stillman reminds us of Renoir’s immortal advice: “Everyone has their reasons.” And principally those reasons are self-interest. Metropolitan reminds us the self-interest and happiness aren’t the same thing.

For their 200th outing Tom & Chris (and Colleen briefly) find themselves on the road with a pair of serial killers who prey on women through the classified ads.
 
There are cats in America. But as refugees and immigrants fleeing oppression arrive at our shores, let them not find us to be those cats, ready to pounce and oppress them anew. If we want to change the world, there's nothing to stop us but ourselves. The Lost in Criterion Holiday Special talks Don Bluth’s An American Tail.…

Many years ago when I thought I had insomnia — more on that in this week’s episode — I would enjoy the two am showings of classic films on my local PBS. It was there that I was first introduced to basically any Criterion film that I’ve noted was a favorite before we recorded, namely The Third Man, F for Fake, and this week’s offering: Robert Ha ...…
