Periodically, a title slips through Criterion's fingers, but these will always be a part of my personal Collection.
Picked this up from a local independent rental place when it was going out of business. I'm still kicking myself for not thinking fast enough to also grab The Killer while I was raiding their stock.
A purchase made long after the title had gone out of print; absolutely worth it for the exclusive commentary track.
One of Cronenberg's most chilling concoctions. Again, the exclusive commentary makes it a keeper.
Another old edition with an exclusive commentary. Later releases may have more bells and whistles, but I still snagged it when I saw a sealed copy for sale at Amoeba Records during one of my trips to Los Angeles. Such is the lot of a Criterion fetishist.
One of my favorite films as a child. When, as a teenager, I morphed into a Monty Python fan, I was delighted to discover that half of them had had a hand in it.
Perfection, pure and simple. And the Soderbergh/Gilroy commentary is a delight.
A quintet of Buñuel from his most fecund period. If Criterion can't bring these back into print, I hope they can at least add some more of his surrealist masterpieces at some point in the future.
Just heard this was joining the OOP Melville pile. At the rate they're going, there won't be any Melville Criterions left in print!
And finally, the one Roeg that has gone rogue. May it fall back into print somewhere down the line.
Managed to acquire this one just under the wire. (For a while, though, it looked like it was going to get away from me.)
Ta-ta, Merchant Ivory Collection!
