I've not only seen it on TCM, but at The Film Forum in NYC in 2011. Fantastic film. Well worth adding to your Criterion Collection.

Anyone know why Amazon's price for this is over 30 bucks, when Badlands is just over 25? I know it's only like a 5 dollar difference, but usually they only charge this much for two-disc sets. I was looking forward to getting this one, but with so much other stuff coming out on the same day, somethings gotta give with that price...

Default Can we argue about pricing?

Just don't see the need for questioning the prices of the Criterion releases. We must realize these films are licensed from bigger studios (which I am sure they make Criterion pay a price). Plus with these awesome 4K and 2K restorations, I would pay a pretty penny to get these blu rays. Now if only Criterion was able to re-release The Third Man on blu ray!
