I am a writer for television and film, originally from Henderson, Kentucky. In addition to John Cassavetes: Five Films, my favorite Criterion releases so far are Beauty and the Beast, Seven Samurai, The Rules of the Game, 8 1/2, Anatomy of a Murder, Smiles of a Summer Night, I Vitelloni, Grand Illusion, Modern Times, Orpheus, Le Trou, L'avventura, ...oh, this is ridiculous. Impossible to list them all. My dream Criterion release would be a Leo McCarey box, but I'm not holding my breath. A Gregory La Cava set would be nice, too. And now that Don Siegel is represented with Riot in Cell Block 11, how about some more of his stuff on Blu, particularly the great Charley Varrick, which has never even had a DVD release in the proper AR.

  • Favorite director: Leo McCarey
  • Favorite Criterion edition: John Cassavetes: Five Films
  • Most wanted in the collection: Ruggles of Red Gap
