Edit List

This is a list of all the criterion movies I've seen to date. I'll give my opinions and ratings on them as well.

  • This movie was pretty weird. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great... I found it to be just really... Weird. 4/10

  • Now this movie is fricken awesome! Instead of a movie that's bad and weird, (The Mikado) here's a film that's excellent and still weird! Weird as hell! But I love it! Every second of it! 10/10

  • One of the greatest foreign films I have ever seen. The tension is built so excellently and it is such a beautiful movie to watch. I've never heard of this before I watched it, so I was kinda skeptical, but boy am I glad I watched this one. Highly recommend this one 10/10

  • I really like the graduate. It used to be one of my all time favorites before I discovered the world of foreign cinema. I definitely recommend this one, it's a very fun watch with an excellent score. 10/10

  • What a fantastic movie. One of the greatest Japanese films I've ever seen. Kurosawa does a fantastic job of conveying the story of a samurai who gains trust as the film progresses. Definitely check this one out. 9.8/10

  • This movie is okay. It's very enjoyable, but it's not one of watch over and over like some other films on this list. However, it still is a fun and very strange watch, and it does have a very very good ending. 7/10

  • This movie's creepy. Buffalo bill is messed up. Did I like this, yes. Did I love it, no. It is still a great film and probably Anthony Hopkins' best role however. 6.7/10

  • Now here's one of the many British masterpieces you have to see. It's creepy, weird, and just awesome! Definitely check this one out if you haven't already. 10/10

  • This was a fantastic movie. 12 angry guys in a room for 2 hours. Doesn't sound very good, does it? Well, it is. It's very good. Watch this. 10/10

  • Here's a horror masterpiece not many people seem to know about. Carnival of Souls is frickin awesome. I highly recommend this to any horror fan. 9/10

  • Pretty great Chaplin film here. I prefer Modern Times, but you still gotta watch this one, it's an absolute classic and has probably the greatest narrative in any Chaplin film. 8.5/10

  • This movie is superb. Spike Lee's magnum opus, Do The Right Thing is just an all around fantastic movie. Dealing with racism and everything that comes with it, Do The Right Thing is a quintessential picture. 10/10

  • Here is a black comedy all about the cold war. It is very good and each time I watch it, it gets funnier. I highly recommend this one. 8/10

  • Once again Charlie Chaplin delivers a hilarious picture. I won't go into detail with this, just watch it for yourself, it is fantastic. 9/10

  • Here we go, the best Chaplin film in my opinion, Modern Times! This was the first picture in which Chaplin spoke and in my opinion the funniest chaplin film. 10/10

  • Fantastic early chaplin picture. Very funny and has a great narrative. 9/10

  • This is a movie that really fascinated me. Its one of the great modern movies that isn't shy to be imaginative and different. 9/10

  • Absolutely hilarious Hoffman flick and just an entertaining movie anyone can enjoy. 9/10

  • Just finished watching this really strange movie. But, it was pretty enjoyable. Good Morning is a very quirky Japanese comedy movie directed by the legendary Yasujiro Ozu. One thing I did not expect was all the fart humour. Funny movie, very weird and quirky. 8/10

  • I watched this a long time ago but don't remember enjoying it too much. The only thing I remember is the famous monologue. I won't give this a rating because I haven't seen this in a while.

  • I've heard nothing but praise about this film so I had to check it out. Yes, I did watch it, but I can't give it a rating because the dvd I got didn't come with subtitles which was very strange. So I watched a French movie not knowing what was going on. I actually do speak quite a bit of french, so I thought I'd have no issue figuring out what was happening, but I did. So, I'll check this one out when I find a version with subtitles.

  • Godzilla was pretty awesome with a solid plot and great acting. 8/10

  • I just watched this and OH. MY. GOD. This movie was so complex, so intense, so emotional, and it could possibly be the greatest film I've ever seen. You HAVE to watch this masterpiece. 10/10 100/100 1000/1000

  • Wild Strawberries is a great film. I didn't think it was as good as persona per say, but I still did really enjoy it. A very happy movie that makes you feel good. 9/10

  • After being completely dazzled by wild strawberries and Persona I decided I had to watch another Ingmar Bergman film. So I decided to watch Autumn Sonata. And it was... Meh... To be honest, throughout this film, I didn't find myself invested in any of the characters at all whatsoever. The acting was phenomenal and the plot was solid, but I didn't find the characters interesting enough. 6/10

  • Fantastic WW1 film and one of Kubrick's most overlooked. 9/10

  • Better than autumn sonata, but not as good as Persona or Wild Strawberries, Winter Light is an excellent, but depressing piece of Scandinavian cinema history. My only issue with it is that it didn't feel 100% complete to me, but I was still very moved by it. 8.8/10

  • Hilarious classic comedy. 9/10

  • Unfortunately the only version I have seen of this is the theatrical version. So it is a lot shorter than the original. But that doesn't mean I still didn't love this movie. It was heartwarming, sad, feel good, and even scary at times. 10/10

  • Hilarious rockumentary 9.5/10

  • Just saw this a few days ago and I think my life is changed. Never have I ever seen a film so creative and unique that can be funny, scary and even romantic. 10/10

  • This movie was frickin awesome. Even if I had no clue what happened. All I can say is that David Lynch is a true master of cinema. 10/10

  • What. Did I just watch. 10/10. Don't ask why.

  • This movie was amazing. It was such a unique experience, and I highly recommend it. 10/10

  • I watched the river and was slightly disappointed. I heard this was amazing, but I was slightly underwhelmed. Nevertheless, this is still a beautiful film with great cinematography and I really like that it was shot only in India. 7/10

  • I just watched this and oh my, I loved it. One of the greatest Italian films I have ever watched. Such a sad, but amazing film. 10/10

  • My god was this film disturbing. I thought this movie was great, but it was incredibly disturbing. 8/10

  • Just saw this this morning and I gotta say, I was pretty entertained. It was funny at times, but also very sad. 8.5/10

  • Excellent Truffaut masterpiece. One of the best films about film ever made. 10/10

  • Fellini classic. Not his best but still deserving of attention. 9/10

  • Just watched this this morning and it was pretty damn funny. Don't know why it gets so much hate. 8.5/10

  • Amazing documentary. Very funny at times, also very sad at times. A bunch of very quirky real life characters are in this. 10/10

  • Fun campy movie. A popcorn flick. A film you'd watch when you have some downtime. Nothing amazing, but very entertaining. 7/10

  • Fantastic Chaplin flick. One of his best for sure. Definitely check this one out. It's hilarious, but also sad. 10/10

  • Fantastic Truffaut movie. One of the best criterion films I've seen thus far. 10/10

  • I did not expect to love this film as much as i did. Of course it has its flaws but this movie really surprised me. It was hilarious. Definitely my favorite Wes Anderson movie to date. 9.5/10

  • Very good heartfelt British new wave film with lots of laughs and lots of sadness. 9/10

  • Early Jack Nicholson masterpiece. Very sad and bleak at times but also very heartwarming at others. 10/10

  • Hilarious, extremely awkward modern masterpiece. I love all the references to classic films in this movie. And the acting is near perfect. This film will make you cringe, laugh, and maybe even cry. 9/10

  • Like Gates of Heaven directed by Errol Morris, Vernon Florida is about a bunch of eccentric people in an obscure town. I love this movie. There are lots of very strange moments in this. 10/10

  • Not my favorite Wes Anderson film but still a good one nevertheless. Funny, heartfelt and just an all around great movie. The soundtrack is phenomenal. 8.5/10

  • Fantastic early comedy film. I saw this movie a while back and loved it. 10/10

  • Very strange film. Strange but really good. I enjoyed it quite a bit, partly due to its weirdness. Probably Bowie's best film. 9/10

  • Hilarious comedy masterpiece. One of the greatest comedies of all time in my opinion. 10/10

  • Hilarious Wes Anderson film but not my favorite. Still a pleasure to watch and some of the greatest casting choices of all time. The Royal Tenenbaums also has an amazing soundtrack. 9/10

  • Alfred Hitchcock classic. Not my favorite film of his, but still very good. 1 word: SUSPENSE. 8/10

  • What did I just watch? I'm not totally sure but it was awesome! 9/10

  • This movie is insanely good. It's very weird but definitely one of my new favorite animated films. 10/10

  • Pretty great romance comedy. Funny, but also very sad at times. 9/10

  • My god was this film amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone at all. It didn't seem like the kind of film I'd like but it was. Very very good. 10/10

  • Stunningly beautiful documentary all about life and death and relationships. Highly recommend this one I loved it. 10/10

  • Great Stanley Kubrick epic with that classic quotable scene. A hero story like no other but not one of kubrick's best. 8/10

  • Funny black comedy about 2 washed up drunks. 8/10

  • Decent stoner comedy about a bunch of rowdy teens who do illegal stuff. It's okay, it was enjoyable but not that great and not that deserving of a criterion release. But it's a fun movie and not much more. 6/10

  • Great vampire flick by the one and only Guillermo del toro... I think this is probably my favorite del toro film yet. 9/10

  • Decent smart comedy movie. Kind of boring at parts, but it's worth a watch. 7/10

  • Fantastic conversation film. Really gets you thinking about life and death. A masterpiece. 10/10

  • I don't think there was a single think I disliked in this film. This may be Anderson's best work to date. I even liked this more than Rushmore. My god was this a magical experience. Extremely original. 10/10

  • Hilarious slapstick classic. Jacques Tati is a true master of comic cinema. 10/10

  • One of the most inventive and original films of all time. Very weird but very compelling. 10/10

  • The first Lang film I saw was absolutely amazing. I highly recommend this one. Very dark, and excellently acted. One of my favorite criterions to date. 10000000/10.

  • This is what you'd call a fun movie. Not amazing by any means, but a fun film to watch. I expected a little bit more out of this film and sadly didn't get that. This movie overall was a fun watch with a fascist commentary. 7.5/10

  • Fantastic music video collection from one of the greatest musical groups of all time. Most of these videos are extremely inventive and original. Some highlights are Intergalactic, Hey Ladies, and of course, Sabotage. 10/10

  • Overall this film was meh. Wasn't great wasn't horrible... 5/10

  • Decent love triangle robbery comedy film. Not great, but clever dialogue is written and the acting is very good. Wouldn't recommend this but it was worth a watch. 6.8/10

  • Extremely powerful, horrifying short documentary about the holocaust. Can't recommend this because of how disturbing it is, but it is extremely well done and I think everyone should watch it. They won't enjoy it but they should watch it to know how serious this horrible moment in history really was. 10/10

  • Very interesting samurai flick. Wasn't as impressed as I would have liked to been, but still a great movie nevertheless. I would recommend this one to any samurai film fan. 8/10

  • Staged or not, Nanook of the North is one of the most important films ever made. This was the first ever documentary and it's not even a bad one. I found myself very engrossed by this and I recommend it to any documentary junkie. 9/10

  • Funny coming of age comedy film by the great Noah Baumbach. The dialogue is great and the performances are spot on. 8.5/10

  • I did not like this film. I watched it once, didn't like it. Watched it twice, still didn't like it. 4/10. Not a fan of Dassin (yet).

  • Before Paul Verhoeven made some of Hollywood's worst films (Basic Instinct, Showgirls), he made one of Hollywood's best. Well maybe not, but he at least made one of Hollywood's best action films. ROBO FRICKING COP BABY! This is definitely a popcorn movie, but it's entertaining as hell and I loved it. Criterion worthy? Maybe not, but this movie is just straight up awesome. 9/10

  • Excellent Godard masterpiece. Beautiful film with a beautiful score and beautiful visuals. 10/10

  • Fantastic Pythons comedy. A great cast, all the jokes are sharp and witty, and the characters are loveable. Nearly a perfect comedy. The only thing that seperates this film from perfect is that the ending is very dissatisfying. It's hilarious, but very disappointing. Oh well, I can look past that. 10/10

  • Um... What exactly is this film? I'm not too sure honestly. Head is one of the strangest films I have ever seen. I'm having trouble deciphering what this was even about. A decent movie, a popcorn flick at best. Head is something you probably should experience if you love your weirdness. 7/10

  • Just finished watching Salesman... An interesting documentary alright. Did I like it? In all honesty, not really. I really wanted to like it but found that to be a difficult task. Most of this film was very boring to me and I can't see why some people love it like they do. 4/10

  • Saw this a loooooong time ago, don't remember much. Except for bleeding rabbits. Yikes.

  • Not the greatest Wes Anderson flick by any means, but I still loved it. I loved the characters, the story, the setting, and of course, the quirkiness. Bottle Rocket was a charming, hilarious, loveable film. This is definitely one of Anderson's most underrated and I highly recommend it. 9/10

  • Amazing Italian neorealist film by Vittorio De Sica. Beautiful, heartwarming, and very touching. I loved every second of this. It made me cry. Absolutely beautiful film. 10/10

  • Decent war movie. Didn't really like it in all honesty. But it's good. 6/10

  • Um... it's a room. Just a room. No sound, no nothin. Just a room. Boring.

  • Fantastic Louis Malle short documentary all about the tour de france. Highly recommend this one. 10/10

  • Fascinating documentary about legendary cartoonist Robert Crumb. Sometimes hard to watch (especially the family segments), but very well made and interesting. A great film. 9/10

  • Anus bugs, aliens and hallucinations. What's not to love? Okay, well actually a lot. While this film may be entertaining, it's all over the place and doesn't make too much sense. 6.5/10

  • One of the finest animated films ever made. Excellent cinematography, superb acting, and even some laugh out loud moments. 10/10

  • This movie is amazing. I recommend you get off your butt and go see this movie. Now. Even if you've already seen it. It's worth a second watch. This made me cry. 10000000/10

  • Funny comedy film with great acting and intelligent humor. 7/10

  • Fantastic movie. Simple, yet very effective. Life is sweet is a British comedy masterpiece. 10/10

  • Great comedy film from legendary director, Howard Hawks. The jokes are sharp. Great movie. 8.5/10

  • If we're talking about the art featured in this film; 10/10. But if we're talking about the film itself, it's boring as hell. No narrative, little dialogue, just visuals and creepy music. Not that great.

  • Masterpiece. True masterpiece. 10/10

  • Really harsh look at drugs, relationships, music, sex and even homicide. Not bad, but not great. I enjoyed it, but probably wont watch it again. 7/10

  • Fantastic extremely fun cult film. 10/10.

  • Fantastic look at the life of a struggling folk musician. Highly recommend this one, one of the greatest films of the decade so far. 9/10

  • YESS!!! This is finally in the collection!!! Being there is a masterpiece and one of the greatest comedies out there. Highly recommend this one. 10/10

  • Very good French film from director Maurice Pialat. I will definitely be checking out more of his work. 7.5/10

  • Really wanted to like this but couldn't. Boring. 4/10

  • Excellent war film, one of the all time greatest. Also one of the greatest child relationships ever put to screen. 10/10

  • A very interesting, often times comedic, often times dark, very quirky romance film. I loved every second of it. Possibly my favorite Truffaut film thus far. Oh and Catherine is a lunatic. 10/10

  • One of the most thrilling films ever made. So exciting, so intense, so goddamn fantastic. Blow Out is very close to perfect. My first De Palma film, but definitely not my last. This was amazing. 10/10

  • Fantastic Dylan documentary. An interesting time capsule back to the 1960s. If you are a Dylan fan, you will appreciate this film. 9/10

  • I could go on about this movie for days, but I won't. King of the Hill is fantastic. It is truly an incredible film. One of the greatest coming-of-age stories ever on screen. This movie was surprisingly funny at times, and featured an excellent cast of eccentric characters. I highly recommend this film and it is one of my new favorites. A masterpiece. 10/10

  • My god I loved this film. Immediately as it started, I was hooked. The hour and a half felt like 5 minutes to me. Such an original, unique, and utterly charming film. 10/10. Masterpiece.

  • Masterpiece. 10/10. Very intriguing story of prostitution, will definitely have to check out more from Buñuel.

  • Awesome movie. Love love love this. 10/10. Best Godard film by FAR.

  • Pretty good Godard film, very fun and playful. 8/10.

  • Pretty good movie, very disturbing at times and hard to watch however. Also kind of boring. 6.5/10 in terms of my enjoyment.

  • Awesome edge-of-your-seat type of movie. I love the way it spoofs Hollywood. Altman was a genius. 10/10

  • Cool New York comedy with a vintage French New Wave Feel. Very enjoyable and stylistic, but not much substance. I still loved it though. 8.5/10

  • Frickin awesome cult comedy film by Zwigoff himself. 9/10

  • Pretty damn good. Vibrant, colourful, happy, I love this movie! 9/10

  • Masterpiece. One of the all-time greatest coming-of-age stories ever put to the big screen. 10/10.

  • First movie in the series was great! Can't wait to see more. 8/10

  • BOOOORING. 4/10

  • Cool coming-of-age movie with a killer soundtrack. 8/10

  • One of the most overrated films Criterion has to offer. Bleh. It's still a pretty interesting concept with fantastic cinematography however. I'd still give it a 6/10.
