I tried to list only those that I either own currently or are in the process of purchasing. Thanks be to the Gods for the re-release of Salo & many thanks to www.barnesandnoble.com for giving us Criterion releases this month at 50% off. How cool is that? I should also add that my company is a partner with B&N so I was able to take advantage of an additonal 5% percent off my total order & managed to get freee shipping on any order above $25. Dude, this totally rad! Needless to say, I'm nearly destitute so I only bought two films recently from the Criterion collection. However, I do have a collection box at my desk & I'm currently taking up donations for my DVD collection fund. Please give generously if you can. I love you all!
Oh yes! I loved this one from the time of it's initial theatrical release & Criterion really did a splendid job as one might expect. I loaned this one to a friend once & didn't know if I was ever going to get it back. He kept it for months.

Easily my favorite Bergman film of all time. I have loved this one since I was just a tike. I really want their 5 disc DVD edition of this. If anyone wants to donate to my cause, please feel free to do so. ;-)

I rented this one once in high school but never was able to finish it as I was trying to study for exams & what not. Needless to say, the film stuck with me & I was glad we were granted a beautiful Criterion release for it many moons later. Irene Jacob is luminous.
Many people cite The Piano as their favorite Campion film but I still love this one more than any other. While The Piano & Angel At My Table are both brilliant works of undisputed art, Campion blew me away with this one.
Perhaps the most strikingly erotic film I've ever had to endure. I bought the videocassette in my late teens from Critic's Chocie & a family member walked in while I was watching it. I tried explaining numerous times that I wasn't watching porn.
