Does anyone use this? I was thinking of signing up. It's a streaming service created by Turner Classic Movies in cooperation with The Criterion Collection. They have 3 options for membership: just the Filmstruck channel which is $6.99/month, Filmstruck + The Criterion Channel which is $10.99 per month, or Filmstruck + The Criterion Channel annual membership which is $99. I was thinking of doing the annual membership but before I did I wanted to get some feedback with anyone who may be currently using this service. Thanks!


Just signed up for this today and their library so far is great. Got a lot of movies added to my watchlist. I signed up for the $10.99 per month which gives me access to Filmstruck + The Criterion Channel. If you're looking for classics or hard to find movies, this is the place to find them.

Great call. Filmstruck is the fudge. One of the best things a cinephile can do is drop Netflix and pick up Filmstruck (or just pick up Filmstruck). I find myself watching so much less junk...

Filmstruck is great about keeping fresh content readily available with 'Director of the Week', 'Friday Night Double Feature' (They just did The Seventh Seal and Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey) and a steady influx of TCM and Criterion titles. I love it so much.

I also like the collections they offer. And yes, I saw some of the upcoming double features. Look good. I thought I saw when signing up some Criterion special features are available. Do you know where they are?

Special features are generally below the movie if they have them. Go to the page where you would watch the movie and try scrolling down. The intros, audio commentaries and featurettes will be listed there or in that vicinity.

I recently watched a Michael Curtiz film called The Breaking Point based on the same Hemingway story that To Have and Have Not (Hawks, Bogie & Bacall) is based on. There's a cool feature on director Michael Curtiz's (Casablanca) fluid directorial style attached.

Nice month as usual. In for most. Already picked up that Bergman set. Make a great Xmas gift for some cinephile.

That Bergman set is calling. I haven't pre-ordered yet, but I don't know if I can hold out much longer.

Does anyone know if THE SEVENTH SEAL is getting a second release on Blu-Ray? I know in the new box set it has a new 4K transfer but I was wondering if it'll be available separately? If not, I'll just buy the 2009 version. Recently watched both THE SEVENTH SEAL and THE VIRGIN SPRING. This is my first introduction to Bergman and both of these films are absolutely fantastic! I will be adding both to my collection. Does anyone have any other Bergman recommendations that are similar to either of these?

Not sure on the Seventh Seal.

Autumn Sonata is a beautiful looking film to watch in the fall and summer with Monika is a good Summer one.

Cries and Whispers, Fanny and Alexander, Persona, Hour of the wolf. I've never seen anything by him that wasn't great and great to look at.

Thanks, I appreciate the recommendations! I saw HOUR OF THE WOLF last night and while visually entertaining, I wasn't as impressed with it as his other 2 films that I've seen recently.
