With this episode, I’m trying out a new method of releasing our Disc 2 episodes. To coincide with “new release Tuesdays,” we’ll be including a new segment in our Disc 2′s: Off The Shelf. This will be a rundown of the week’s new releases on DVD and Blu-ray. In it we’ll highlight those releases that we find particularly interesting, pointing out those that you should avoid, and those that demand your hard earned dollars.

I’m also trying out something new in that I’m releasing the Disc 2 before I’m releasing our main discussion on Le Samourai. I still haven’t decided on whether this is how we’ll do this going forward, but I wanted to try it out. My thinking is that the Disc 2 will coincide with the new releases of the week, and the main episode will go up a few days later, for you to listen to over the weekend. Given the nature of our show (people usually listen once they’ve seen the Criterion film discussed), I’m not quite sure if this is necessary. If you would like us to continue releasing the main episodes on Mondays, and the Disc 2′s towards the end of the week, let us know in the comments below. I take all of your feedback very seriously.

Disc 2 episodes are bonus/supplement episodes of The CriterionCast. Ryan Gallagher, James McCormick, and Travis George chat about movies and movie experiences. “On The Screen” is where they discuss anything and everything that has been on their screens in the week. This is what they recommend to you, the listener.

What do you think of the show? Please send your feedback to, call their voicemail line @ 209.877.7335, follow them on twitter @CriterionCast, or comment on their blog,
