(Reposting via Sean Fennessy—for some reason standard reblog functionality for photo reblogs are not working for me right now. Grrrrrr.)
I haven’t seen Frances Ha yet, though I will almost certainly pick this up when it’s released in November. Side note: Noah Baumbach’s interview with Marc Maron via the WTF Podcast is excellent (the quote I posted earlier today is from that interview)—he talks about his new movie, while also touching on the ups and downs of his career.
My first job right out of college was doing graphic design with a small DVD label in Ravenswood called HVE, who was also Criterion’s distributor. During that 3-year period, I really grew to love this company’s output, and received something of a crash course in film history, to boot. A big perk of working there was that I received a copy of each Criterion release—everything between the releases of Band Of Outsiders and F For Fake, which turned out to be something like 115 complimentary Criterion DVDs. It was pretty sweet.
