the criterion collection

all film fans are indebted to the criterion collection. their repertory dvd releases are pretty sweet. their existence allows the long-term survival of really solid, smaller-budget films from years/decades ago. films like that usually don't do much of a good job at the box office when they are released. but thanks to dvd, these solid films stick around. my favorite example of this is Fight Club. you really think 1999 was ready for that shit? 'boy meets world' was still on tv. now fight club's a must-watch, and not only among cinephiles.

the third man

"Remember what the fella said: In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love; they had 500 years of democracy and peace. And what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.
