Premiering June 1

100 Years of Judy Garland

Has there ever been so much talent concentrated in one human being? Both a powerhouse singer and an actor of staggering emotional range, Judy Garland was the consummate entertainer, a born-in-a-trunk show-business lifer who grew up before the eyes of America and who could embody girl-next-door innocence, vivacious vitality, and tremulous vulnerability with equal conviction. The combination of her dazzling talent and tragic offscreen struggles endeared her to a generation of gay fans—and one hundred years after her birth, Garland remains the most famous musical leading lady in the history of Hollywood. This selection of the beloved MGM films that defined her early career—including collaborations with her frequent costars Mickey Rooney (Girl Crazy) and Gene Kelly (For Me and My Gal, Summer Stock) and director and husband Vincente Minnelli (Meet Me in St. Louis, The Pirate)—celebrates the awe-inspiring artistry of a once-in-a-generation performer.

Microbudget Movies

No budget? No problem! Short on cash but flush with inspiration, these resourceful filmmakers prove that passion and creative vision can turn scarcity into opportunity.

Terence Davies: A Retrospective

Featuring the exclusive streaming premiere of The Terence Davies Trilogy

The supreme rhapsodist of contemporary British cinema, Terence Davies began his career by transmitting his own experiences of growing up gay in the Liverpool of the 1950s and ’60s onto film, weaving pain, nostalgia, domestic strife, cinema love, Catholic guilt, and repressed desire into exquisitely evocative masterpieces like The Terence Davies Trilogy (comprising the shorts Children, Madonna and Child, and Death and Transfiguration); Distant Voices, Still Lives; and The Long Day Closes, which eschewed traditional narrative structure in favor of mood and sense-memory impressionism. Davies’s acute emotional sensitivity remains no less piercing when applied to stories of women colliding against the social forces of their time, as seen in the sublime romantic drama The Deep Blue Sea and the stirring Emily Dickinson biography A Quiet Passion, which feature revelatory performances from Rachel Weisz and Cynthia Nixon respectively.

  • Children, 1976
  • Madonna and Child, 1980
  • Death and Transfiguration, 1983
  • Distant Voices, Still Lives, 1988

Queersighted: The Musical!

Featuring a conversation between series programmer Michael Koresky and Criterion web editor Andrew Chan

There is an assumption—or, often, a stereotype—that the musical is an inherently gay genre. The strange reality is that, in terms of characters and themes, queer representation is historically quite scarce within the film musical, a genre that largely revolves around heterosexual romance. In this edition of Queersighted, host Michael Koresky and special guest Andrew Chan, editor of Criterion’s online magazine, Current, discuss a selection of tuneful standouts—from the golden age of Hollywood to deconstructed French homage to Taiwanese experimentation—that queer the movie-musical form, whether through subtext, via thrilling subversion, or by virtue of the queer auteurs behind them.

  • The Pirate, Vincente Minnelli, 1948
  • Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Howard Hawks, 1953
  • The Young Girls of Rochefort, Jacques Demy, 1967
  • Original Cast Album: “Company,” D. A. Pennebaker, 1970
  • Victor/Victoria, Blake Edwards, 1982
  • A Chorus Line, Richard Attenborough, 1985
  • Golden Eighties, Chantal Akerman, 1986
  • The Hole, Tsai Ming-liang, 1998

Directed by Ulrike Ottinger

Featuring a new introduction by the filmmaker, part of the Channel’s original Meet the Filmmaker series

Defiantly unconventional, extravagantly stylized, and gleefully transgressive, the sprawling cinematic pageants of Ulrike Ottinger swirl avant-garde provocation, inquisitive ethnography, punk surrealism, and baroque theatricality into some of the most wondrously unclassifiable spectacles of the New German Cinema. Whether seeing Cold War Germany’s divided capital through radically imaginative eyes in her early Berlin Trilogy or exploring the Mongolian steppes and the Bering Sea in her more recent documentaries, Ottinger blends fantasy and observation in her stunning, painterly images. Lesbian pirates (Madame X: An Absolute Ruler), Dorian Gray in drag (Dorian Gray in the Mirror of the Yellow Press), self-flagellating leather daddies (Freak Orlando), and an ennui-stricken socialite drinking herself into oblivion (Ticket of No Return) are just some of the outré (and always outrageously costumed) oddballs populating the Ottinger canon, which audaciously reimagines what cinema can be and for whose gaze it is made.

Billy Wilder’s 1940s

Although, or perhaps because, he was born in Austria, writer, director, and Hollywood legend Billy Wilder saw America more clearly than most, probing its absurdities, hypocrisies, and self-delusions with a witty and often devastatingly cynical eye. This selection from his 1940s prime brings together two frequently overlooked World War II gems (the dynamic espionage thriller Five Graves to Cairo and the sophisticated romantic comedy A Foreign Affair) and two of his undisputed masterpieces: the definitive film noir Double Indemnity and the intense, groundbreaking study of alcoholic self-destruction The Lost Weekend.

  • Five Graves to Cairo, 1943
  • Double Indemnity, 1944
  • The Lost Weekend, 1945
  • A Foreign Affair, 1948

CRITERION COLLECTION EDITIONS

Premiering June 1

Double Indemnity: Criterion Collection Edition #1126

Billy Wilder set the standard for film-noir fatalism with this seductively sordid James M. Cain adaptation, one of the most wickedly perverse love stories ever told.

SUPPLEMENTAL FEATURES: Audio commentary featuring critic Richard Schickel; an interview with film scholar Noah Isenberg; a conversation between film historians Eddie Muller and Imogen Sara Smith; Billy, How Did You Do It?, a 1992 film by Volker Schlöndorff and Gisela Grischow featuring interviews with director Billy Wilder; and more.

EXCLUSIVE STREAMING PREMIERES

June 1

Fire Music

Although the free-jazz movement of the 1960s and ’70s was met with heated controversy, its pioneers—brilliant talents like Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Sun Ra, Albert Ayler, and John Coltrane—are today acknowledged as central to the evolution of jazz as America’s most innovative art form. Fire Music showcases the architects of a revolution in sound whose radical brand of improvisation pushed harmonic and rhythmic boundaries and produced landmark albums like Coleman’s Free Jazz: A Collective Inspiration and Coltrane’s Ascension. A treasure trove of archival footage conjures the kaleidoscopic world of the 1960s jazz scene along with incisive reflections by critic Gary Giddins and a number of the movement’s key players.

June 2

Karen Dalton: In My Own Time

With her plaintive, bluer-than-blue voice, singer Karen Dalton rose to prominence within the Greenwich Village folk scene of the 1960s—though her rough-edged authenticity stood out even within that storied bohemian world. Idolized by contemporaries like Bob Dylan and younger musicians like Nick Cave, Dalton discarded the traditional trappings of success and instead lived a defiantly unconventional life, one committed to her artistry. Since most images of Dalton have been lost or destroyed, this poignant documentary uses Dalton’s dulcet melodies and interviews with loved ones to build a rich portrait of this singular woman and her hauntingly beautiful voice.

June 14

Chameleon Street

Featuring a new introduction by Criterion curatorial director Ashley Clark, part of the Channel’s original Spotlight series

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 1990 Sundance Film Festival—yet criminally underseen for over three decades—Chameleon Street recounts the improbable but true story of Michigan con man Douglas Street, the titular “chameleon” who successfully impersonated his way up the socioeconomic ladder by posing as a magazine reporter, an Ivy League student, a respected surgeon, and a corporate lawyer. Distinguished by a dexterous performance and daring direction from actor-writer-director Wendell B. Harris Jr., this audacious dark comedy trains an incisive lens on the roles that race, class, and performance play in the formation of American identity. Piercingly funny and aesthetically mischievous, Chameleon Street is a newly restored landmark of independent filmmaking.

Secrets of the Hollywood Archives: Forbidden Planet

One of the most influential science-fiction films of the 1950s, Forbidden Planet shaped the evolution of the genre for decades to come with its groundbreaking production design, special effects, and electronic score. In this edition of Secrets of the Hollywood Archives, Oscar-winning visual-effects artist Craig Barron and sound designer Ben Burtt pull back the curtain to reveal the movie magic behind what they describe as the most iconic spaceship-landing scene in film history.

Observations on Film Art No. 47: Reflections in and on Yi Yi

One of the first masterworks of the twenty-first century, Edward Yang’s Yi Yi is an at once epic and intimate portrait of a year in the life of a Taiwanese family. It is also, as Professor Jeff Smith argues in this edition of Observations on Film Art, a valentine to the transcendent possibilities of cinema. Exploring Yang’s subtly sophisticated use of framing, reflections, and the techniques of rear projection and superimposition, Smith reveals how the director uses these uniquely cinematic devices to draw our attention to the moments of ephemeral beauty that pass, almost unnoticed, across our everyday field of vision.
