7 Plus Seven (1970)

"Apted's style of filmmaking is that one need not watch all of these films from the very beginning to appreciate the evolution -- each film sufficiently references the previous ones such that it stands alone." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

35 Up (1991)

"Apted's compassion always shines through, inviting a reciprocal sense of compassion and empathy on the part of the viewer." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Even Dwarfs Started Small (Auch Zwerge haben klein angefangen) (1970)

"Truly one of the most bizarre and hilariously disturbing freakshows ever executed by a major director, Even Dwarfs Started Small is sure to impress and perplex even the most ardent admirers of German auteur Werner Herzog." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Lessons of Darkness (1995)

"Two of Werner Herzog's best non-fiction efforts are combined as a double-feature DVD -- they show Herzog's impressive willingness to take risks and stretch outside even his own unconventional parameters." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

The Brood (1979)

"Cronenberg clearly hasn't yet broken through with this film -- the 'serious' filmmaker is still lurking below the surface." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

L'Atalante (1934)

Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne (Ladies of the Park) (1964)

My Life as a Dog (Mitt Liv som Hund) (1987)

"Criterion's 'director approved' edition of My Life as a Dog finally delivers the presentation that the landmark 1985 Swedish film always deserved." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Stargate (1994)

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)

"This double-disc Criterion edition is defiantly loaded with extras, as if to dare nay sayers to belittle this film in light of such evidence." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

5/5 96%

Band of Outsiders (Bande à part) (1964)

"Band of Outsiders may very well be Jean-Luc Godard's best film -- and that's saying quite a lot considering this is the director of Breathless and Contempt." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Muhammad Ali, the Greatest (1974)

"A work every bit as compelling as its subject." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

Tombstone (1993)

"A lovely two-disc set in custom slip-sleeve packaging, not only restores the film to director George Cosmatos' original 134-minute cut but does right by the picture and sound in a way that the first DVD never really did." ‐Boxoffice Magazine

All the Right Moves (1983)

"The picture is bleak at times and has an edge to it that similar films don't -- that's possibly a good thing but potentially a bad thing for those who like their coming-of-age films warmer and fuzzier. This one definitely isn't that." ‐Boxoffice Magazine
