• Lawrence Kasdan has had quite an impressive career in Hollywood, moving from cowriting blockbusters like The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark to writing and directing his own, more personal films. In this excerpt from a new interview recorded for Criterion, Kasdan talks about his positive experiences in the studio system, and how working on what he calls “high-quality mass entertainment” allowed him to move on to darker, more dramatic territory, as he did with The Big Chill.

    Would be great to see 'Grand Canyon' and 'Wyatt Earp' in the Collection someday.
