My 25 favorite films released by Criterion. Damn, that was tough.
*NOTE: Kind of a depressing group of films.
Classic. If you are a teenage boy and you watch this film, you will understand why it is number one.
A different yet same heist film. Oozes cool.
Dark, disturbing, strange. Caught it late at night and I've loved it ever since.
Painful, but beautiful.
Robert Mitchum does some of his best acting in this seventies gem.
Dick Widmark being cool and all over the place.
The first French gangster movie that I had ever seen. Great.
I was never a fan of Kurosawa until I saw this when I was about 13 or 14. I only had heard his name associated with samurai films.
Hilarious, twisted, dark, campy, gritty. It's Sam Fuller.
Hilarious. That is all.
Dark and shocking. I couldn't imagine seeing this during it's original release.
Some of the finest acting ever on screen. It's what Cassavetes did best.
Hoffman in a dark and violent role. Controversial in it''s time but that's what Peckinpah brought to the table.
Funny film, very dark comedy. Rotten characters but a good time.
Better than I wanted it to be when it was first shown to me by a friend. Michael Powell thrived without his lesser half.
One of the funniest movies ever made.
Great heist and great wit.
Beautifully crafted story of a criminal with ethics.
Amazing. Fell in love with this movie after catching it on tv and then months later Criterion released it. I always recommend it to friends.
Such an interesting movie that becomes more depressing as the time goes by.
The movie that ruins every road trip that my wife and I take.
Great semi-propoganda message film.
Tragic but cool, Gabin is fantastic.
Another great non-samurai Kurosawa flick.
