• We hope you like it. We couldn’t have built it without our friends in Palo Alto, the Auteurs. There are still a few kinks to iron out, so please be patient with us while we get it right. You’ll find plenty of new things to do at the new criterion.com, and some old favorites making a comeback. To help you find your way around, Jason Polan, our friend with the pen, made us this little orientation video.

    OK, international film licensing is a complicated matter. So it is frustrating but no big surprise that most of the rentals are restricted to US residents. But that Criterion is not able to ship a coffee mug from the store to any other country but US and Canada is completely beyond me! I'd hoped that this shipping policy would have changed with the new site, but no luck :-(

    How about a Criterion edition of One-Eyed Jacks, the only film directed by Marlon Brando. The version that's out there now has been butchered and is of such poor quality that Monterey Bay looks like a cesspool.

    I find this site utterly amazing and found it because of Drew Barrymore. Her extremely stimulating portrayal of Small Edie was a light in my cinema journeys. Keep growing Criterion!

    Well done. Y'all should acquire Bergman's THE MAGICIAN.

    I rented a copy of ‘The Magic Flute’, (Mozart, Bergman) from a movie rental shop. Where can I buy a copy? Here's the link: http://www.criterion.com/films/613 Also found a copy at Barnes and Noble Books but that was a while ago.

    It would be great if the following films were to be added to your beautiful library. Sands of the Kalahari Peppermint Soda Alice in Wonderland (with Charlotte Henry and W.C. Fields)

    I have looked to Janus Films and Criterion for quality films for many years. Now that the on-line web distribution of media is taking shape it is a relief to see your company in the forefront. Nice work, thank you.

    I too would love to see Etorri Scola’s “La Nuit de Varennes”. It is not available anywhere (I've looked.) I joined Criterion in hopes it will be transferred to DVD soon. It is an incredibly well done film with great performances from the many actors in the film.

    It would be wonderful if more films could be accessed via iTunes! Being in Canada, Hulu is not an option. ... Best wishes in 2015 and thank you for your great work.
