Film critic, historian, script writer, incomparable raconteur, and host of more than 120 monthly Cinemachats at BAMcinématek, Elliott Stein passed away last November at the age of 83. This spring, we pay tribute to our beloved friend with a trove of cinematic rarities from Stein’s near-bottomless Cinemachat wish list, each presented by a different guest host.
