My Man Godfrey (new on Criterion Channel)

The only thing I’m celebrating this December is the joy of laughter. Luckily the Criterion Channel has my back, and their first major spotlight is all about the Screwball Comedy. Blending all the hallmarks of the rom-com with zany twists, this early American genre favourite has been enchanting people for nearly a century. Some of the films streaming as part of the spotlight include It Happened One Night, My Man Godfrey, The Awful Truth, Holiday, Ball of Fire, His Girl Friday and The More the Merrier.

Winter is here to stay, so why not settle in for some snow westerns? This awesome curated section features a lot of unsung western classics from all over the world, including Track of the Cat, Day of the Outlaw, Ride the High Country, The Great Silence, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, Dead Man and Ravenous.

The World Cup is well underway but it’s bedtime in Qatar (or if your favourite team has been eliminated), check out some of the incredible selection of football films Criterion has put together to satisfy diehard sports fans. The Goalie’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick, Infinite Football, Shaolin Soccer and Offside are some of the featured titles.

Other highlights for this month include Christine, Poetry, Tootsie and Cane Fire (Dec. 12).
