Criterion Half-Price Sale at B&N

It's after midnight on the East Coast, and the July half-price Criterion Collection sale has begun at Barnes & Noble!

According to the Criterion Cast, the sale runs from Tuesday, July 7th, through Monday, July 27th.

My wish list includes RIDE THE PINK HORSE (1947) and the Silent Ozu: Three Crime Dramas Eclipse set -- and perhaps some more Kurosawa movies!

Anyone who'd like to share recommendations or their purchases in the comments is welcome to do so.

Happy shopping and viewing!

This is the first B&N sale where I haven't had to stock up on older titles, which is weird. So I caught up on recent releases: Wallace/Gregory box set, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, The Killers. And I have pre-ordered all of the July titles.

Good times!

I'm going to get the Jacques Demy box set that's been on my wish list for a while. Maybe Belle de Jour and La Dolce Vita, too. I'm in a foreign movie mood, I guess! :)

THE KILLERS box, which has been available for some years now, is still one of my favorites from them, given the diversity of adaptations they offer.

There is so much of a muchness among what Criterion offers that it's difficult to know where to stop, rather than where to start. I don't need the Michael Bays, but it is a mutually kind thing for them to do. Etc. I still need to look at a few previous purchases.

Love hearing what everyone plans to get! Melissa, I got the Demy set last year and have to admit I haven't yet plunged into it! But I loved THE YOUNG GIRLS OF ROCHEFORT when I saw it at UCLA so I definitely look forward to it!

Todd, the KILLERS box is great! That's a wonderful pickup. I hadn't even seen THE KILLERS till a couple years ago -- what a great movie. I always think of Conrad and McGraw going to the diner; classic movie bad guys!

Best wishes,

" Cranes Are Flying" a Russian film with a sad romance, tragedy, betrayal and WW2. Very depressing but well worth it.

Satyajit Ray's "The Music Room"
The story of a nobleman ruined by hubris, consumed by regret, and memories of his family's past glory. About his only redeeming quality is his great love of music. Also pretty depressing, but fascinating.

Thank you for the recommendations; I've added several of these titles to my "To See" list.
