    This Valentine’s Day weekend, we have a sweet treat for you. From today, February 14, through Monday, February 18, all of the Criterion titles streaming on Hulu Plus, available to viewers in the U.S., will be free of charge to nonsubscribers (with advertisements). It’s the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with the incredible array of our movies available for instant viewing—we now have 800-plus selections, including hundreds of rare titles from around the world that have never been released on DVD or Blu-ray in the U.S. And remember that if you sign up for Hulu Plus for just $7.99 a month, you can see them all the time, commercial-free!

    This happy occasion also marks Criterion’s two-year anniversary with Hulu. We think we make a wonderful pair, and we look forward to continuing to bring important cinema to the most movie lovers possible.

    Before you start browsing Criterion films on Hulu, here’s a little romantic inspiration: Breathless, starring the peerlessly sexy duo of Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg. Watch it in its entirety below, or at Hulu.

    I have Hulu Plus so I can watch these anytime, but I did want to say how pleased I was to see so many incredible movies uploaded this week. The Criterion Hulu page is already one of the best resources on the internet for film, and the fact that you are still committed to uploading more means it will just keep getting better. Thank you!

      The additional Fassbinders are most welcome, but I wish some of his television films had been included. At this rate, I fear I'll never get to see The Coffee House, The Niklashausen Journey, Bremen Freedom, Jail Bait, Like a Bird on a Wire and Women in New York.

    Anyone who watches these movies for free: they are even better sans commercials. Honestly, 800-plus movies is no exaggeration.

    Criterion is the reason I came back to hulu. I have never regretted it. Although I wish I could afford hulu plus, I can't at this time, so this is a real treat to me. THANK YOU!

    It's strange that some selections are not available - many documentaries, but also a few like *Sisters*, *Picnic at Hanging Rock*, *Eating Raoul*, and *Last Wave*. Quite a few Aussie films actually.

    Oh, Jesus, shut the fuck up EWB you ungrateful twit. I enjoyed myself 42 wonderful Criterion flicks and survived every damn ad without complaint (although HULU really does have some lousy original programming advertised) Get a real problem to bitch about. THANK YOU FOLKS AT CRITERION. Some of us understand how business works.

      I wish I could "like" your comment. These same people must yell at their TV every time a commercial comes on.
