Today Barnes & Noble has begun their semi-annual Criterion Collection sale. This is pretty much the highlight of my year, (which is pretty pathetic) but at least I get what I am normally buying for 27.99-30.00 for 16.99 or less. Today I purchased five blu rays. Alfred HitchcocksThe 39 Steps, Charles ChaplinsThe Gold Rush, Hal AshbysHarold and Maude, Otto Premingers Anatomy of a Murder, and Yasujiro OzusLate Spring. Slowly but surely I will be reviewing each and every one of these films and the purchases that are sure to follow later such as the Eclipse 33: Up All Night with Robert Downey Sr., The Samurai Trilogy, and David Lean Directs Noel Coward box sets.
