The Criterion Channel continues to find new ways to mix it up. Last month, they released a series of interdimensional romance/heartbreak films, and in prior months, they’ve even dedicated a playlist to movies with famous cats. March 2024 is no different as they’re spotlighting a famous (and occasionally controversial) awards ceremony – and not the one you’re thinking.

Here’s what’s coming to The Criterion Channel in March 2024:

Streaming Premieres

There will be two streaming premieres on The Criterion Channel in March 2024. The first is Our Body, which the Channel comments is “timely, intimate, and deeply empathetic” and that it “observes the everyday operations of the gynecological ward in a public hospital in Paris.”

The other is Our Father, the Devil, which is described as “a grippingly intense exploration of trauma, revenge, and forgiveness that stands as one of the most exciting feature debuts in recent memory.” Count me in on both of these.

More from The Criterion Channel in March 2024

This is just the beginning of what’s to come for The Criterion Channel in March 2024. There will also be a ton of returning restorations and American independent films. Included among them are Mulholland Drive, Frances Ha, Drive My Car, and the recently restored 4k version of Raging Bull.
