Twitter Talk: Our Criterion Collection Wish Lists

Twitter Talk: Our Criterion Collection Wish Lists

May 15, 2012

It started with a tweet about David Ehrlich's review of the new Criterion Collection edition of Being John Malkovich ... and it turned into an article at this very website! Amazing! Basically I just threw out this tweet: "If you ran Criterion for one day, what three films would you release?" My own choices were Sorcerer (1977), Student Bodies (1981), and Crimewave (1985), but (fortunately) I have twitter pals who have much better taste than my own. (And if you don't know what the Criterion Collection is, you should rectify that as soon as possible by clicking here.)
