What’s a criterion
The Criterion Collection is a series of important and contemporary film classics from around the world, released in a new special edition DVD (also Blu-Ray).
Very interesting Dr. Jones.
Interesting topic. I actually met and talked with John Sayles one time when he was on a book tour and asked him about a Criterion edition of his movies esp. Matewan. He said he hadn’t heard anything from them about any of his movies, but would love to do some Criterion editions. He also mentioned the poor sound quality on the last DVD of Matewan that he would like to fix. It might be a rights issue. MGM put out most of his films, and I’m not sure if they outsource their DVD collection to Criterion at all.
Well, maybe MGM will come around and consider the potential benefits that the cross-promotion could provide.
