    I found Ebert's review helpful.

    Is there a MSRP cut-off where the Barnes & Noble sale no longer applies? It seems silly to drop $160+ on the Godzilla Showa-Era box set at the end of October if I can wait two weeks and save at least $40.

    The B&N sale is going on now until December 1st. I got the Godzilla: Showa-Era collection for $127 after tax. Also, picked up Stalker. Hoping to get some releases on Blu-ray that I already have on DVD including Haxan and Carnival of Souls.

    enjoy the sale everyone. it's been a rough year and I had to sell my entire Criterion collection and probably can't pick up anything this month, as tempted as I am. I am enjoying the hell out of the Criterion Channel though.

    Awesome. I just ordered the Criterion version of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me myself. Very excited and plan to get Blue Velvet at some point soon as well.

    The cover artist probably mistook Three Colors for 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    I got the bug.

    after having to sell my collection due to tough times over the end of last year, things are a bit more stable now and..

    I had to partake in the B&N 50% off sale today. I thought I was done, but it brought a great joy to be "sucked back in" especially during these weird times. I made sure not to go too crazy and limited myself to just a few titles. But I'll be going again for a few more before the sale ends.

    -The Inland Sea - (watched this one and it was such a calming, beautiful, meditative experience)
    -Notorious (haven't seen this Hitchcock film)
    -The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice (super excited to see this Ozu, have seen almost all his films but not this one yet)
    -Band of Outsiders (I think it's about time for me to get into French cinema)

    HBO Max has over 300 Criterion Collection titles on their streaming service.
    This site has a list of the titles, as of May '20.

    I remember reading an article, perhaps in a magazine, where Trent mentions watching Crash repeatedly. The only thing I could find was a WT-era article where he lists music that he regularly listened to while recording his albums, with the Crash soundtrack being the one tied to The Fragile. Also, here's a quote from an old article about scoring:

    ’I did ‘Natural Born Killers,’ and ‘Lost Highway’ for David Lynch,” says Reznor, “but I’ve really no interest in doing any more compilation albums. The only thing I’d want to do these days is actual scoring.”

    “I’d love for David Cronenberg to call me on the phone and say, ‘Score a film’,” he adds. Reznor’s spooky, atmospheric sound would blend well with the film making style of the creator of films like “Crash,” “Naked Lunch” and “The Fly.”

    “Quake was fun because they didn’t want hard-rock goofy music going through the game,” explains Reznor, “it was all about atmosphere at the time.”

    I'm still hoping Cronenberg calls him up and tells him "Score a film."

    He cited the novel too when JG Ballard passed away.

    I can't find an article, but I think I read somewhere that basically Lynch called him and said "Score a film" (Lost Highway). That's how Driver Down and Videodrones came about. But then it wasn't working out for the rest of the film and they agreed for Trent to produce a soundtrack later instead.

    I can't really see Cronenberg letting Trent & Atticus score one of his films, primarily because he and Howard Shore have worked together for so long. Why mess with a good thing?
