It’s true, apparently, about Criterion Co. offering a visual hint in their latest newsletter about their intention to release James L. Brooks‘ Broadcast News (1987), presumably in DVD format only but Bluray would be extra nice. I tend to regard the passage of time in terms of acts or chapters or movements rather than years, but even with that buffer in mind it feels…well, not exactly queer or curious to think of this film being 23 years old. But damned if it ain’t.
There’s also been a recent indication somewhere within Criterion’s Facebook page that Alexander McKendrick‘s Sweet Smell of Success (calling Carrie Rickey!) will also soon be released.
