I haven't seen the film in years but if you're interested in French New Wave and cinema in general it will be a good investment.

A few more titles:

Thanks again for the input bro. Yes I think Criterion is the way to go and also thanks for putting these new movies. I have "8½" added to my most wanted list for a long time and now my Region A player is on the way so I am going to get it definitely but it will also be a blind buy for me.

Didnt know much about "Le mépris" and "Solaris". Checkin them now

The Sean Connery Bond films, the Lazenby film, and the Craig films in the franchise for the win, but The Living Daylights is also a keen choice. Well, they're all good for the above.

Not quite as much arthouse credibility, but they're all great movies.
Thanks for the recommendation. My problem is that only a few bond movies appealed me and they are from Sean Connery to Roger Moore era and everything after that I dont like. I still cant digest the fact that "Graig" is playing James Bond!!!
