Criterion Close-Up 14: Blind Chance (1981) & the Mulholland Drive Aftermath

Aaron and Mark first talk about the aftermath of a monumentally popular Mulholland Drive episode, which may or may not have had a guest. We also have an extended intro and news section before delving into Krzysztof Kieślowski’s 1981 (or 1987) Blind Chance. It is a product of a volatile political time, very much a product and statement about that time, while also being an important work in the career of a respected international auteur.
