Wildlife (2018)

Directed by Paul Dano

I have always loved ITALIAN AMERICAN, previously hard to find. I love Scorcese's sensibility and how the film captures first generation immigrant experience and now gone NYC setting. I like the idea of this compilation & hope to find it.

The other selection seem unnecessary. While I'm a huge Paul Dana fan, that movie sounds like a real misfire. Hope Dano remains ambitious, he has lots of talent.

I like Criterion releases, knowing classic film is appreciated. When I think of Criterion, I think of "artsy" movies, although DANCE GIRL DANCE is more a programmer. I like Criterion DVDs, they're usually very good quality.
