Film Review: Bertrand Tavernier’s ‘My Journey Through French Cinema’

The releases—which will all hit stores on the big promotional day, April 22—include the sorts of things you’d expect to catch vinyl fans’ eyes: Bowie, Prince, and Lou Reed are all represented, plus Spoon’s new album and the Thelonious Monk soundtrack we reported on earlier today.
