17.99 each! What cupon convo did u use? What was the original price? Details?
What do you guys think:
Essential art house: Ikiru + Colonel Blimp + 400 Blows
Samuel Fuller Box Set
for around the same price. Which to choose?
Well I don’t know anything about Sam Fuller, but I think Ikiru and The 400 Blows are both undeniable masterpieces, so I would go with the first option.
The Dreyer Collection isn’t on sale :(
What?! I badly wanted the Dreyer collection!
Oh well, I’ll just enjoy the rest of the sale.
Why would the Dreyer Box Set not be on sale?
What else isn’t on sale?
“You have to take notice that not every Criterion DVD is on sale. Titles like Last Year at Marienbad, Le Trou and Friends of Eddie Coyle are not marked off.”
They all are… as long as the tag says “Criterion”
Any idea why the Dreyer boxset is not on sale?
Lona I’m not sure they all are. The “Variety Lights” essential art house isn’t on sale and neither is “The 39 Steps”.
I will check at work tomorrow. To my knowledge there was no ‘list of exceptions.’ The only thing I can possibly think of is that they are Criterions not categorized as Criterions… but the only one I’ve ever seen that with was the bluray of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Thanks Lona. I just want to be sure that it isn’t a slip up or anything and end up having to ship twice. :)
LOL. It’s like a giant Criterion orgy.
Fredo, that’s what this site is.
i squander criterions like obama squandered the black vote, maybe someday ill name a dog after my first and last initials…
Reading this thread, I just visualize a mad hoard of people running around throwing their hands in the air yelling and screaming about Criterion DVDs.
I ordered Haxan & Bande a part. :)
Oops, see what happens when I go on vacation for a couple days. Sorry, Lona, I didn’t mean for you to be left defending/answering questions etc. Lookng forward to this sale… :)
Got the following….
John Cassavetes: Five Films
Days of Heaven
The Spirit of the Beehive
Ace In The Hole
Nice. Just about to make my picks.
haha yea Casey make sure your bracket is filled out :)
Wajda box set
I would like to thank Loofrin for informing me about this sale. You are truly a good man, my friend.
JUST ORDERED “ELEVATOR TO THE GALLOWS” AND “THE SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE” PLUS I HAD A 10% OFF COUPON!!!!!! Being in debt never felt this good!
I initially doubted the sale was real, but just ordered Ran, Late Spring and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp… the sale is real and it’s spectacular!
I think this is Gods way of saying “I love you cinephiles”.
Drew has just disproved Bergman’s entire Faith Trilogy.
We’ve been over this. I truly believe Bergman was a self-hating religious man.
He struggled with God and God’s actions so he said that he was an atheist. Still he did not truly believe there is no God, so religion kept creeping into his films.
Drew, that has a lot to do with the way Bergman was raised. I strongly believe that one’s surroundings during his earlier of childhood has an immense effect on his thoughts, emotions and everything related to his mind in his later life. Hence as Bergman was raised as a god-fearing child and remained so till Winter Light, even after Winter Light he was heavily conflicted about God and his view of its existence.
My joke was actually about God’s silence though.
I also think Bergman did not as much hate God as he hated his father, and from his childhood he connected the two.
