    Easily the best thing I saw all day. Those special features fucking cracked me up. My favorite was the "The Kids Aren't All Right" one. I wonder if Criterion underestimated how many people would have legitimately bought that if it were real. Because everyone I've seen, has said that they'd have bought it in a heartbeat.

    Pretty bored by July's releases. Hopefully August is much better.

    I'm still waiting word for both Y Tu Mama Tambien and Breaking the Waves on their Criterion releases suggested from the New Year's Eve cartoon.

Besides, I think it needs it display the film's original long cut and the re-released shortened version to understand what Cimino had to do to re-release the film.

    Thanks for your input.

    I will rephrase. Is there any information on a Criterion sale that may be going on right now? I can't find anything, yet I notice a bunch of titles (blurays) are $20 and under on Amazon.com right now.

    Amazon frequently holds Criterion sales. They're not like the B&N sales where it's all titles, but they do usually select a decent sized handful.

    The Dardenne Brothers films are the ones I want. I love Rosetta and I really want to see La Promesse. I hope it opens the door for more of their films including their earlier work prior to La Promesse. Hopefully for the eclipse series.

    I got BLU of Repulsion and World on a Wire for $20.99 then Last Year at Marienbad for $23.98.

    (I also ordered BLU of Enter the Void and Red Riding Trilogy which were 50% off.)

    I never realized Brief Encounter was on Criterion bluray, but it's only available in the box set "David Lean Directs Noel Coward." I would love to own Brief Encounter but is it worth the $52.99 for the boxset? Does anyone own this or have opinions on the other movies in the set, "In Which We Serve", "This Happy Breed", and "Blithe Spirit"?

    I was looking into getting that a while ago but the reviews for it were not impressive. Plus I'm a sucker for Criterion.

    Did anyone get the new Criterion newsletter? I think the puzzle picture is Paul Greengrass' Bloody Sunday.

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking.

    And Orestes, there's another one called FakeCriterions which is really good too.

    Any word on when exactly the june B&N sale will start yet?
