Variety Lights Criterion Vs. Essential Art House

Hal Croves

I know the CC edition of Variety Lights has been OOP for some time, and the Essential Art House edition is going out of print.

Amazon evidently still has copies of the CC edition in stock, but there are no supplements really, so is there any reason in the world to get the CC edition if possible, or is the obvious answer to get the EAH edition for 10 bucks?

Well it depends on you really. Do you prefer the extra content or not? Personally I can do without so the cheap (and now even cheaper) price of the EAH edition makes it the choice I would take.

There is no extra content on the CC edition. I guess I’m looking for someone to make it clear that there is no reason on earth to consider buying that version, or to make it clear that there is a reason. It seems real obvious, but I can’t help thinking there could be a reason to buy the original version if possible.

EAH edition. It’s a great looking film & charming enough to validate a purchase but not the best of Fellini’s work.
