Netflix’s Roma, the Oscar-winning film, is getting a much-deserved Criterion release in 2020.
On Friday, Criterion rolled out its monthly announcement of upcoming titles (set for release in February 2020). Alongside cultural significant documentaries (Jennie Livingston’s Paris is Burning, the film that gave the world the vogue before Madonna popularized it, and Antonio Gaudi, a Criterion staple finally coming to Blu-ray) and a Pier Pablo Pasolini provocation (the Terence Stamp-starring Teorema), came a genuine surprise: Alfonso Cuarón’s lyrical masterpiece Roma, the first-ever Criterion release of a Netflix movie.
So what does this mean for filmmakers making movies for Netflix? And could more Criterion editions of Netflix favorites be on the way?
