The Criterion Channel’s April 2024 lineup is packing 'Heat'

With it being 1st April, The Criterion Channel has announced its April 2024 lineup and it’s a scorcher. Amongst the many titles available to watch, we have:

  • A tribute to William Friedkin
  • “Come Back, Africa” a Lionel Rogosin a film made in secret in South Africa about a young Zulu man’s struggles to provide for his family under the crushing burden of apartheid
  • Martin Scorsese’s After Hours
  • A collection of anime films by Makoto Shinkai
  • Three movies from Cameroonian director Rosine Mbakam
  • A candid documentary on the late great Maurice Hines
