Here’s to Sony ClassicsMichael Barker and Tom Bernard and their ongoing celebration of the company’s 20th anniversary, which more or less kicked off in Toronto. I’ve been dealing with them since the early ’90s. As far as I’m concerned there’s no team with a more intelligent or well-measured approach, and no finer brand in the indie realm (dependent or otherwise). I especially love Barker-Bernard for their long alliance with Pedro Almodovar.

David Poland‘s video interview works pretty well, I think. I don’t have any Jihadist qualms about posting his stuff, so here it is and best wishes to Sony Classics — a company that has been good to me all along.
