Thanks once again to Lee, Abbey and Ryan, you guys were AWESOME!
For the record, Mr. Sayles has said publicly that this was in the works, but keep in mind that no date has been set yet.
I was fascinated participating in that demo for sure, it's cool how they use the tricks of the trade to make sure to get it as accurate as possible.
This is why the "Teal/Orange Brigade" has always struck me as being full of themselves. Just need another excuse to demand a new format or feed their confirmation bias.Unfortunately, the vast majority of reviewers and critics have no idea what they're talking about. Even paid ones from supposedly legitimate sources. We're in an age when saying negative things always comes off as being more discerning than those who don't. There's a subconscious reaction to any negative comment that the person making it must know what they're talking about. I guess people get their enjoyment where they personally find it, but I tend to be amazed by how many supposed movie lovers seem to spend an awful lot of effort looking for things to dislike about movies, and how they're presented.

That made my day! One of my favorite films! Let’s hope that happens soon!
Yes, but those of us who want to listen (yeah, I've listened to all of every podcast) need to plan the 100 minutes to listen to it, plus I'm guessing most also have it waiting in iTunes or wherever we subscribe, waiting for us when we have time.It's so frustrating that the Blog Post makes it look like the only content is the video =(
yet still, all had made me wonder if there would ever be a "maybe" release of "Anna and the King of Cyan".
But seriously, though, I extend a most sincere congratulations to both Sam and Ron on pursuing, producing and fulfilling this solid 90 plus minute interview; along with a bundle of thanks to Criterion, as well, for their informative, insightful and generous tour.
My suggestion for those who have yet to listen to this podcast is to just turn off your phones; put out the cat;
open up a nice bottle of wine; and sit right back in your easy chairs to immerse and enjoy.
