My Top 4 Criterion Collections Wants!

I got an email this morning saying that there might be a Criterion Collection Flash Sale this afternoon. So I thought I would put up a quick guide if you are undecided on what to buy during the sale or if you are just undecided on what to buy in the Criterion Collection world.

Here in no order….

McCabe & Mrs. Miller directed by Robert Altman and starring Julie Christie and Warren Beatty (1971 Spine Number: 827) – I remember being on a Robert Altman watching binge and although I found the plot somewhat dragging. I was more enticed by the rich scenery and costumes of the film.

Paris is Burning directed by Jennie Livingston (1990 Spine Number 1018) – this is one of my favorite documentaries and I am so glad it got the Criterion Collection treatment. I first watched this documentary in college about 12 years ago when. I didn’t realized until the school I graduated that the college library has stacks of amazing hidden movies and this was one of my finds.

Paris, Texas directed by Wim Wenders. Starring Harry Dean Staton, Nastassja Kinski and Dean Stockwell. If there was ever a movie to fall in love with. This would be high on my list! The first time I watched this movie I was a little hesitant to watch it right away because of the running time. Running at two hours and 25 minutes I was like thinking oh is this movie going to drag? But once I started watching it I was totally absorbed with EVERYTHING it had to offer. It even made me sob for a good five minutes after I stopped watching it.

All about my Mother directed by Pedro Almodóvar and starring Cecilia Roth (1999 Spine Number: 1012) – Pedro Almodóvar is one of my favorite directors. For me his movies remind me of the Spanish soap operas my aunts would watch but on the big screen. There are so many layers in Almodóvar dialogue that makes you want to rewatch his movies to make sure you absorb everything.
