• In this week’s festival of free films on Hulu, we’re highlighting a sampling of our bite-sized features. All of these short-and-sweet selections clock in at under eighty minutes: it’s a great, quick way to get acquainted with classic cinema from around the world. Surely you can make time for Robert Bresson’s Pickpocket, Luis Buñuel’s Simon of the Desert, Koreyoshi Kurahara’s The Warped Ones, Aki Kaurismäki’s The Match Factory Girl, Basil Dean’s 21 Days (starring Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier), Kazuo Mori’s The Tale of Zatoichi Continues, and James Hogan’s Arrest Bulldog Drummond.

    And if you’re looking for some efficient spine-tingling, check out Ernest B. Schoedsack and Irving Pichel’s Hollywood shocker The Most Dangerous Game, in which a big-game hunter enlists unwitting houseguests as his prey. Stream the whole film below, or over at Hulu. Sign up for Hulu Plus for just $7.99 a month, and you can see the hundreds of other Criterion films streaming there.

    I've already watched Pickpocket (which was phenomenal). Looking forward to checking out The Warped Ones and maybe a couple others.
