For the last week, I have watched this a bunch, and cursed every time I’ve gone to check the mail and found the box empty. But today, it came! It finally came! And I am so excited to see this menu on my television sometime soon.

Wim Wenders Visits “The Criterion Closet”

these videos, in which cinema icons squeeze into Criterion’s storage room and pilfer their favorite titles, are always a right bit of fun, but — and i haven’t fact-checked this, so i’m taking a bit of gamble, here — i think this is the first such video in which one Criterion filmmaker tells an epic story about the time he chortled with another Criterion filmmaker while the two of them peed side-by-side. it’s times like these that i really regret not having a staff of interns.

p.s. get used to having Wim Wenders around, cause you’re going to be hearing his name a lot this year…

"I feel utterly spoiled to walk out with this, but then again… film buffs are shameless."

As part of that series I said I was going to start and then immediately forgot about, I am going to recommend a movie that is available to watch instantly on Netflix.
My choice is Fish Tank.

(Katie Jarvis I really wish you hadn’t gotten pregnant and never took advantage of getting agents in the UK and the US.)

I love Criterion’s Three Reasons series so much, but their first reason for The Great Dictator is pretty much “we like that he makes fun of the German language.”

(The cover art for the DVD/Blu-Ray discs is so unbelievably poorly designed. I don’t know how it got approved.)

guy maddin, inside the criterion collection office product closet.

BAG. Oh man, if I didn’t already love Guy Maddin, I love him now.

(It is one of my life dreams to be invited into the Criterion Collection Closet. I would undergo the exact same process of guilt, and then take everything anyway.)

I tend to dislike April Fool’s but Criterion did it pretty well.
