Art films on dvd - Criterion and others
September 6, 2004 11:34 PM   Subscribe

Collect art films on DVD? You probably already know of DVD Talk (and their forums). But What about Criterion Forums, a place to discuss boutique dvd labels (not just Criterion, but Kino, Anchor Bay, Blue Underground, Plexi, and others), as well as trade and purchase used titles from other collectors/ members? (You'll see more categories in the forums once you register.)

Five minutes browsing and I can already smell a paycheck burning. Thanks, Dobbs!

Oh, and is that the Blue Underground link you wanted, or did you mean this one? [warning, sound]

Thanks for the tip off, though this post is liable to cost me a fortune. (I'm in love with Criterion just now, for offering Grey Gardens on DVD.)

Yeah, the Kino site will be my undoing. I'll send you the bill, dobbs. :-)

Thank you dobbs, but I hope it's okay if I blame you for any excessive spending that may result from this...

Thanks. Also: Palm Pictures, Facets, Zeitgeist, and Home Vision Entertainment.

Aargh. Sorry for the Blue Underground snafu. It was late, I was tired. :(

And sure, send me all your bills, folks. No problem.

Oh, and thanks muckster for those other links. Here are some more:

Masters of Cinema (which has been MeFi'd before) also has a label now (their best of 2003 list is worth a read). DVDBeaver, which I linked last year, will also be of interest to collectors, so here it is again (it's not what you think based on the name). These collections from the National Film Preservation Foundation are also cool. And though not in English, it's fun to drool at sets released by Alto (I have the Truffaut, Herzog, and Fellini) and MK2.

I should hope Synapse Films is on there too.
