I have the third man blu, I think I have all the blu's that have since went OOP and quite a few of the DVDs too but for as much as I love Contempt I really should own it.

I'm actually going through my collection and taking stuff out to sell that I don't particularly care for... it took me years to get to this point with the CC. Feel like I'm growing up.
Go ahead, make my millennium.

I still remember those days when collectors were flipping Salo, Robocop and Silence of the Lambs Criterion DVDs. And these were non-anamorphic!

Just finished World on a Wire. What a great drymountin flick! Very Kubrick, has a little Westworld to it and Matrix, obviously. Amazing that it was made in 74.

Nice! I wanted His Girl Friday but even with the discount it's expensive. Ended up putting that and Being There back for next time and went with 3 Tarkovsky movies since I have a goal of watching more of his stuff this year.

Yeah, I hadn't realized His Girl Friday was a $50 title. I guess it's worth it, since it includes a second feature length film, The Front Page.

I'm almost ashamed to say this, but I've never seen a Tarkovsky film. Where should I start, Solaris?

Not sure really, so I'm going to go through them chronologically. I bought Ivan's Childhood and Solaris on Blu and Andrei Rublev on DVD. That's everything Criterion offers. Gonna have to pick up The Steamroller and the Violin, The Mirror, and Stalker elsewhere.

Solaris is probably his most accessible work and was my intro to Tarkovsky. I would hold off on purchasing both the Mirror and Stalker as there are rumors that Criterion now holds the rights to both films.
