I didn’t know if this was a conscious effort or a happy coincidence but there were more Black films (or films with Black people in major roles) than I expected in The Criterion Collection’s upcoming line-up. They include:
- Melvin Van Peebles: Four Films
- Love & Basketball
- Mona Lisa
- Beasts of No Nation
- Deep Cover
- The Signifyin’ Works of Marlon Riggs
If you can find other means of watching or buying them, do that.
