Bargain: The Semi-Annual Criterion Sale Come Back Around to Barnes and Noble
50% off all Criterion titles, in stores and online
Every year, Barnes & Noble drops prices across the board on their entire in-stock collection of Criterion titles. Old and new, DVD and Blu-ray, everything as long as it's in print and on hand. (That means no pre-orders.)
The sale is currently underway and runs a couple of weeks (the website doesn't announce the end date, but don't expect it to last too long). It's a great opportunity to pick titles you've missed along the way or get that gift for a cinephile friend.
Need some suggestions? Here are some recent Criterion disc reviews from Videodrone that span from new (Abbas Kiarostami's "Certified Copy," Lena Dunham's "Tiny Furniture") to classic ("David Lean Directs Noël Coward," Charlie Chaplin's "The Gold Rush") to cult ("Being John Malkovich," the original "Godzilla") to a couple of rediscoveries (Rainer Werner Fassbinder's "World on a Wire," Mario Monicelli's "The Organizer"). Or just browse the reviews of the past couple of years here.
