I don't know how you UK Criterion fiends do it, these things are far too expensive!

Tell me about it!
I only own 4 at the moment. Just bought 2 few weeks ago.
Great packages though.

I haven't bought a single Criterion and I do have a multi-region player so what would you guys recommend as my first dip in the Criterion water? What is most probably THE best film they've released? A hard question I know but to be honest I don't think I've seen a single film in their collection other than Wages of Fear and Videodrome. I like all films from all genres so I can't even help you narrow it down a bit, sorry. :o

Their release of Blow Out is fantastic and one of my all-time favourite thrillers

And today I went old school!

This will probably come as no surprise coming from me, but it's a great film and the Masters of Cinema release is easily the best available. Top purchase!

There isn't any more violence, in fact, it's been toned down slightly in this version.

Good idea to keep the origional cut then!!!

Night of the Hunter, one of the best films ever made.

I'll have a look at the ones I own and see which I consider essential.

Admittedly, I don't even know anything about the majority of titles Criterion release. I need to do some research, I'm sure there's heaps of phenomenal releases but I'm always hesitant to blind buy due to the price.
Tempted to go for some of the samurai films though, and Wes Anderson ones too.
