You're absolutely correct.

One is not accessible, the other looks like junk.

Since when don't you like junk? You watch junk all the time. Everyone likes junk.

I hope you mean 'not accessible' as in "there's no way to get a copy" not "it's pretentious and obscure and obviously not for most tastes."

It has Charles Boyer, for fuck's sake.

Andrew Sarris says it's the best movie ever made, but he married Molly Haskell, so his tastes are suspect to say the least.

Dude, it is NOT accessible. No way to get a copy without a Visa or a MasterCard (which I don't own). Especially not for reasonable amounts of money.

And also, yosh, there's junk and there's junk.

Yes, yes. It's currently sitting at #3 on my queue just below Man on Wire, which for some reason isn't available at my local video store, and Exterminating Angel, a movie I've waited years to see. Oh god, I can't believe it's coming!!!

I saw half of it late night on TCM about two years ago. Fell asleep. I was enjoying it, although apparently not enough to buy it during the ensuing 730 days.

The Virgin Spring is so great. Bergman just knew how to achieve that great final moment to send you off at the end of his movies.

I think I'm going to see Closely Watched Trains.

I love Smiles of a Summer Night.

Closely Watched Trains was good. There's a look to it, I don't know what kind of stock was used to shoot this movie or if it was a particular styling of the DP but it's got a great look to it. It's also very charming and ultimately tragic. The opening scene is so funny.

That opening scene is what sticks out in my memory; you're right, it was damn funny stuff. Definitely an original.

I'm glad you agree. My whole class disagreed, and I had to basically defend my opinion to them. Not fun.

So WTF? I wait years and years to see El angel exterminador, Criterion releases it, I add it to my queue on Netflix and it's coming on TV just now. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. It's listed as having a Long wait on Netflix, anyway.

:O

I know it was expected, but not so soon!

That new Seventh Seal artwork is :wub2: . Can't say I'm a big fan of the Marienbad one, though.

On a side not, is there any reason I'm not getting the Criterion newsletter in my gmail account? Like, not even in the junk or trash folders?

I've been celebrating all week that I never pulled the trigger and bought the original Seventh Seal DVD.

That Marienbad artwork is disastrous.

Seriously. You'd think they could do better than just reproducing the title card.
