This is an emergency episode to talk about the unfortunate news that FilmStruck will be shutting down next month. Matt and Aaron express some emotions, speculate on what was behind this decision, talk about the streaming landscape and where things are headed, the state of physical media, and where Criterion may end up. Mostly, we want to thank the people from Criterion and FilmStruck for putting together such a remarkable, enjoyable service. Hopefully the next niche service will learn from their curation.
