Yes, please! And if we could get the 4 hour "reconstructed" version (inserting still images from the set to represent missing scenes) with it, it would be even better.

Some people like Rembrandt. Others think Dogs Playing Poker is a hoot. There's room for everybody here without being dismissive. The more information we provide, the better equipped we all are to build the kind of collections we can enjoy.
Unless I missed something, it doesn't look like anybody's being disrespectful at all.

Straight Time is an amazing film. So underrated but it's one of Hoffman's best.

as I was telling another poster the two titles I purchased so far were permanent staples of Hulu and now Filmstruck.

The title I almost purchased today is as well. And I literally only have room for a few more blu-rays so I passed since I know it will always be on filmstruck.

I know that may be blasphemous to say in this thread but it is what it is. How many times am I realistically going to watch Purple Noon again?

Just some thoughts

I have been waiting patiently for Welcome to the Dollhouse on blu. Super excited it could come out from Criterion!!! This film is the one that got me interested in indie cinema as a thirteen year old. Well, also Slackers and a not as well known film called, Suburbia (1996). Anybody?

What film was your gateway into the appreciation of cinema beyond blockbusters? Follow up question: what film opened you up to exploring the Criterion Collection?

2001: A Space Odyssey, back when "blockbuster" didn't quite mean what it means today. It was the film that made me see that movies were capable of being art, and not just stories told in pictures and sound.

I suppose it would have to be Blade Runner, as that was the first Criterion title (laserdisc) I ever bought.

The first part's difficult to answer, because I was watching a lot of films that weren't blockbusters as a very young child. And I have a hard time remembering last week.

It was probably something I saw on "Bill Kennedy at the Movies" which used to show in the afternooons on channel 50 here in the Detroit area, as I grew up. The first two that I recall having a real impact on me were Casablanca and Rebecca. Now, obviously, those are mainstream films. But as a 7 year-old or whatever, they were not what I was used to seeing.

As for in the theater, I'm also not sure. And it depends on what we mean by "blockbuster." Were Alien, The Shining, or Excalibur blockbusters? They don't seem to have been at the time. I saw all of those between the ages of 10-12 in the theater. I remember vividly seeing 2001: A Space Odyssey at an old rep theater that used to exist here (*sigh*). My friend and I were about 12 or 13, and that one sort of blew my mind. I was thinking about it for the rest of the school year.

I'm almost certain that the first Criterion Collection titles I purchased were either the "Wrong Men and Notorious Women" Hitchcock box-set, or the "Three Films by Ingmar Bergman" set. Both on DVD, obviously. But that was long enough that I can't remember which was first, or why I necessarily went for either of those in particular.
"First, a brief preface. Every time I review a film by Jean-Luc Godard, I receive outraged letters from readers who hated it. It is suggested that my reviews and myself join Godard on the trash heap of history; that the customers wuz robbed. A common complaint is that Godard 'made no sense.' And so on." -- Roger Ebert (1966)
