    Masculin féminin

    Jean-Luc Godard

    WC-CR-85: “Bought this at a flea market, believe it or not! Godard's look at youth in 1965 has a relevance today but is missing things like cell phones!”

    Léon Morin, Priest

    Jean-Pierre Melville

    WC-CR-85: “Got this one on sale despite it being OOP. It's not a great film but it's interesting as atypical material for both Belmondo and Melville.”

    The Four Feathers

    Zoltán Korda

    WC-CR-85: “Made during Hollywood's golden year, this British film rivaled Hollywood films, with Techincolor and even groundbreaking location shooting.”

    La Jetée/Sans Soleil

    Chris Marker

    WC-CR-85: “These two movies fly in the face of conventional filmmaking, but they are fun, entertaining, and as good as any great form of poetry.”

    The Rules of the Game

    Jean Renoir

    WC-CR-85: “This is one of those classic films you NEED to see more than once. It's complex in style and structure but it's entertaining and fun at the same time.”

    Pépé le moko

    Julien Duvivier

    WC-CR-85: “Another in a line of films that influenced others. Come to the Casbah with this one, it's worth the trip!”

    Tokyo Drifter

    Seijun Suzuki

    WC-CR-85: “This minor but fascinating Japanese classic has the plot akin to a western (with barroom brawl!), but has a visual style that is deliriously colorful.”

    Close

    Simon of the Desert

    Luis Buñuel

    WC-CR-85: “Despite a running time of 45 minutes, the surrealism of Bunuel is in full force here. The doc on his Mexican films is a great addition as well.”

    ···

    Close

    Vampyr

    Carl Th. Dreyer

    WC-CR-85: “This may not be your typical vampire film, but Dreyer's use of the camera, sound and use of locations makes this one very unique.”

    ···

    Close

    Days of Heaven

    Terrence Malick

    WC-CR-85: “The beauty of the landscapes are more prominent than the people in this one. And the narration has character all its own!”

    ···

    Close

    Le cercle rouge

    Jean-Pierre Melville

    WC-CR-85: “Melville's follow up to "Le Samourai" is another example of cinematic cool. And this time the lone wolf has some assistance!”

  • Patriotism (Criterion DVD)

    ···

    Close

    Patriotism

    Yukio Mishima and Domoto Masaki

    WC-CR-85: “This short film is a startling depiction of death by an individual faced with a no-win situation. It's just as powerful as a feature film.”

  • Blast of Silence (Criterion DVD)

    ···

    Close

    Blast of Silence

    Allen Baron

    WC-CR-85: “This late period noir is pretty much a valentine to New York. It's stands out more prominently than poor Frankie Bono.”

  • Overlord (Criterion DVD)

    ···

    Close

    Overlord

    Stuart Cooper

    WC-CR-85: “Not so much a look at D-Day but rather a quietly moving story of a small solder in a big war machine.”

    The Spirit of the Beehive

    Víctor Erice

    WC-CR-85: “This masterful piece of filmmaking from Spain in the 1970's is a reflection on how a child's imagination works, especially when influenced by a movie.”

    Fists in the Pocket

    Marco Bellocchio

    WC-CR-85: “A brilliant film that changed the perception of filmmaking in Italy. And Lou Castel was never better than in his acting debut here.”

    ···

    Close

    Federico Fellini

    WC-CR-85: “This is one of the best films ever made on making films. And I'm sure people can relate to a crisis like the one that Mastroianni had in the film.”

  • Pickpocket (Criterion DVD)

    ···

    Close

    Pickpocket

    Robert Bresson

    WC-CR-85: “A film by Bresson can be difficult and probably anti-cinematic. But with this film, it proves that the mastery of his art was truly original.”

    Close

    Le Samouraï

    Jean-Pierre Melville

    WC-CR-85: “All kinds of cool is on great display in this Melville thriller, especially the nods to film noir and the samurai mystique. Hail to the lone wolf!”

    ···

    Close

    Bad Timing

    Nicolas Roeg

    WC-CR-85: “Nic Roeg could blend photography, editing, and music as no one else could. As for this story of love gone horribly wrong, the title is accurate!”

  • Ashes and Diamonds (Essential Art House DVD)

    ···

    Close

    Ashes and Diamonds

    Andrzej Wajda

    WC-CR-85: “This Polish film is a look at someone who finds life and love but is still caught in a political trap. The cinematic mastery is simple but effective.”

    ···

    Close

    Eyes Without a Face

    Georges Franju

    WC-CR-85: “A beautiful and haunting horror film from France. Also the extra film, "Blood of the Beasts" is good, but it's probably more horrifying than "Eyes".”

    The Testament of Dr. Mabuse

    Fritz Lang

    WC-CR-85: “The last gasp of Weimar cinema, this is a fine thriller with all the ingredients needed. The car chase is fun because it was ahead of its time.”

    ···

    Close

    Salvatore Giuliano

    Francesco Rosi

    WC-CR-85: “An Italian gangster film set where the Godfather's ancestors lived. Also a true story, not the stuff of Hollywood.”

    ···

    Close

    Onibaba

    Kaneto Shindo

    WC-CR-85: “One of the forerunners of a sub-genre called "J-Horror", this film shows how things such as war can cause such macabre things to happen.”

    Knife in the Water

    Roman Polanski

    WC-CR-85: “A masterwork of Polish cinema, this film was a rarity because it's was about Poles at play with a bit of thriller thrown in. No Social Realism here!”

    PlayTime

    Jacques Tati

    WC-CR-85: “A huge, epic 70mm film on technology gone awry. It's also pretty funny, too.”

    Night and Fog

    Alain Resnais

    WC-CR-85: “The Holocaust is a difficult subject to film. But this one, with it's brief running time, makes you learn a lot and to reflect on what evil is.”

    Hiroshima mon amour

    Alain Resnais

    WC-CR-85: “This French New Wave film is a reflection on rebuilding, not only for a city in Japan, but how a indivdual deals with the past in order to rebuild.”

    Stan Brakhage

    Straw Dogs

    Sam Peckinpah

    WC-CR-85: “I have seen almost all of Sam Peckinpah's films, but this one is his best. It's a great example of how far the human soul can take before it cracks.”

    Seven Samurai

    Akira Kurosawa

    WC-CR-85: “This is one film where you can learn a great deal about filmmaking and life. If you're not a samurai fan by the end, then there's a problem.”

    Jean-Luc Godard

    WC-CR-85: “Godard's scathing look into international filmmaking is pretty ironic when considering that this was an international production!”

    Mon oncle

    Jacques Tati

    WC-CR-85: “This was the first Tati film I saw. His comic timing and his use of satire in the face of technology stands alongside with other geniuses in comedy.”

    The Wages of Fear

    Henri-Georges Clouzot

    WC-CR-85: “A portrait of the human soul disguised as an action blockbuster. It isn't Smokey and the Bandit, but trucks are as cool as Trans-Am's!”

    Carnival of Souls

    Herk Harvey

    WC-CR-85: “This was the film that introduced me to the world of Criterion. It's also a model for other zombie films that followed. Talk about B movie royalty!”

    The Passion of Joan of Arc

    Carl Th. Dreyer

    WC-CR-85: “This is one I appreciate not because of its story but because of Dreyer's masterful technique and his excessive use of close-ups.”

    Fritz Lang

    WC-CR-85: “This is an important film for both German and world cinema. Also, It's considered a "film 101" because it set a standard for other films.”
