C’mon, I gotta tell why this movie is good? You tell me!
Saw this one when I was in junior high school and it stayed with me. Glad to see it in the collection.
Nights of Cabiria
I don’t know what to write. I just love this movie.
I guess you have figured out by now that I am really not going to review any of the films that I picked.
But I do like the folks up at the Criterion Collection. Those are my people up in there.
They are a really great team that’s into some bugged-out, esoteric shit.
And God Created Woman
Peter is like the bigwig. He’s the head honcho.
The Harder They Come
Susan has her ear to the street. She always looks for some interesting stuff to put out.
When I was hanging out up there Heather was working on the audio. But now she switched over to some other department.
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
Sometimes I get free DVDs from Criterion, but not always. I wanted to get one of each, you know, like the whole collection, but they said, “No, Adam, we don’t do that.”
