It shot up to $23/after coupon a few hours after I bought it. It then shot up with the rest of the Criterions in the middle of the night the first night of the sale. Glad I got in early as I've wanted that one for quite awhile at a good price and thankfully it came in the case not the digipack.
I finally received my order yesterday - I'm pretty sure orders that go through DHL take longer because they transport them to the post office which in turns has to sort the package out themselves so you have two middlemen (per se) to go through to get your order.
And with that order, I finally have Insignificance in my collection. A wonderfully misunderstood film that lingers in the mind long after the credits roll.
Thank you for confirming that Chungking Express
went up in price the first night of the sale. I wasn't completely sure if it happened, or if I had just been staring at the DVD version. That one's at the top of my Criterion want list now, hopefully it'll go on sale somewhere in the near future so I can grab it at a decent price. I ordered thirteen Critierions that first night, only because I was able to use both the 10% and 25% off coupons - yeah, I'm a total cheapskate when it comes to media ;)
I did have to send M
back to DD, as it looked like the back of the case was hit by a box cutter. They responded very quickly to my email about the issue, hopefully the replacement arrives in better shape - and in a reasonable amount of time after the almost-two-weeks it took for my original orders to arrive.
I quickly read reviews on almost every Criterion that DD had in stock that night, including Insignificance
. I passed on it as the review made it sound depressing, so I figured I'd try to rent it before buying. Maybe I should've grabbed it anyway...
...and I just noticed that Traffic
, which had been back-ordered, has now shipped :rock:
