For film lovers who don’t have the dough to shell out $40 for a Criterion Collection Blu-ray, the good people at Vice continue to be on your side. Even though Vice can’t give you free online access to Criterion’s trademark glorious HD transfers of the films themselves, they’ve been uploading some of the most intriguing and informative Blu-ray special features as part of their “Conversations Inside The Criterion Collection” series.
Last week we posted Criterion’s comprehensive documentary on the making of “Rosemary’s Baby”, and now fans of Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha” can rejoice as they access Canadian auteur Sarah Polley’s in-depth interview with the film’s star and co-writer, Greta Gerwig. During the 17-minute interview, Gerwig talks about pouring her soul into the production, how she came to cast her parents as Frances’ parents, and how the dancing scenes were pulled off. For fans of Gerwig and Polley, this interview will surely be a treat, and it’s a pretty insightful look into Gerwig’s process. Watch it below and check out our review of Baumbach’s latest film “While We’re Young.”
