Criterion Close-Up 7: December Releases & The Cult of Collecting

Aaron, Mark and Keith give a tribute to William Becker, discuss the December releases, and get in-depth as to the Collection aspect of the Criterion Collection. We look at collecting in general, whether it is beer cans, baseball cards, or laser disc, and we discuss how the Collection curates a library that is worth collecting.
