Surely you could include individual films within boxsets, since those too each have their own spine number.

My list goes to eleven to get that extra push over the cliff.

In alphabetical order:

Barry Lyndon
Belle de Jour
The Double Life of Veronique
The Game
Mullholand Dr
La Notte
Punch Drunk Love
Rosemary's Baby
The Seventh Seal
Traffic
Wings of Desire


Usually The Killing would be on my list, but just having rewatched Barry Lyndon I chose it. If I watched The Killing right now I would probably switch back.

When Night of the Living Dead comes out my list will go to twelve.

Marketa LazarovŠ
Le Samourai
Ugetsu
Diabolique
Throne of Blood
The Music Room
Harakiri
Rashomon
In the Mood For Love
Seven Samurai

Can't stress Marketa LazarovŠ enough. Such an amazing film. Most of these were selected because I watch them so much. They all evoke certain moods and create amazing atmosphere. If I listed OOP's it would certainly have a few Ealing Studio films in it like Kind Hearts and Coronets or Dead of Night. Really wish Criterion could get a hold of a lot of these. The StudioCanal vintage classics line in the UK is superb.

Havenít thought about this in a while, but even with some incredible recent additions, these are some of the films Iím grateful to have from Criterion:

01. Paths of Glory
02. Brazil
03. Eraserhead
04. 8 Ĺ
05. Wings of Desire
06. Badlands
07. Repo Man
08. Down by Law
09. 3 Women
10. The Red Shoes

Iíll also cheat by adding that I omitted out of print and/or DVD only releases such as The Third Man, Grand Illusion, Chungking Express, Hobsonís Choice and The Lady Eve. But like everyone here, I could go on and on.

I keep looking at these Top 10 lists and thinking, "Man, I should have included that one on my own.", but then I look back at my list and realize that there's nothing that I want to kick out.

That's the problem. Ten's just too restrictive.

A friend asked me for my ten favorite films of all-time on Facebook. I gave her thirty, and even that was a challenge.

Almost two years ago, I made up a list of my 10 desert island Criterions. Reviewing it today, I find that only 5 of those made it onto my current list. Here is my list. I'm not saying these are the ten best, but they're the ten that have the most re-watch value for me.*
  1. The Asphalt Jungle
  2. The Big Chill
  3. A Hard Day's Night
  4. His Girl Friday
  5. The Killing
  6. McCabe and Mrs Miller
  7. On the Waterfront
  8. The Philadelphia Story
  9. Red River
  10. The Sweet Smell of Success

Honorable mention goes to The Third Man. If I owned the Criterion, I'd definitely include it, but I'm quite happy with my StudioCanal release.

* At least for now.
Current pre-orders:
05/21/2018: Five Tall Tales: Budd Boetticher & Randolph Scott At Columbia

Most wanted blu ray release: Bringing Up Baby

It falls under the IFC deal. If Criterion wants to release it then it's theirs.

It seems the critical response was lukewarm to film. I don't think it ever played here (Or if it did it was gone after a week).

Has Criterion ever released/upgraded anything that IFC previously released on DVD?

Since Bertrand Bonello seems to be gaining some steam after Nocturama, I'm curious whether Criterion would consider releasing House of Tolerance/L'Apollonide, even though there's already an IFC DVD.

Criterion It's the happiest season of all!

We might have our next announcement this Friday!

Then, a mere sixteen days later, we get our 2018 Clues for Upcoming Criterion Collection Releases Sketching!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

^ Good grief - this month has been cruising by so fast, I hadn't noticed how close we are to the 15th. Assuming that's the day this go-round.

I wish that along with the new drawing each year, Criterion would provide a legend to last year's clue.

Just out of curiousity, are there any unsolved (or unverified) clues left from the 2017 drawing?
