Halifax, NS, Canada I like cheese and long romantic walks on the beach. And now for some poetry: For others fame / And love's red flame / And yellow gold/ I only claim / The shadows and the dreaming. NB - "My Collection" is my collection of Criterion movies. Why some people add what they wish to own, someday, is beyond me. That's what the wishlist is for.

  • Favorite director: @The moment: F.W.Murnau. In The Collection: Joseph von Sternberg [previous picks: Mizoguchi, Jean-Pierre Melville, Hitchcock, Buñuel, Fellini, Dreyer, Bergman]
  • Favorite Criterion edition: Because I want this beautiful image on my page and because I love the film: The Double Life of Véronique
  • Most wanted in the collection: "What films, not in the Collection would I like to have added" >> Buñuel's Tristana (sadly Criterion lost the rights; the Cohen edition is very good); perhaps an Eclipse Series 50: The Tenacious Lens of Bela Tarr; Antonioni's The Passenger, Curse of the Cat People (and other Lewtons), MORE SILENT FILMS!; The Others (2001) by Alejandro Amenábar
