TITLES GOING OUT OF PRINT, ON SALE

Criterion has put up notice today that quite a large number of titles are going out of print from them, and they are pricing them to move. Get an extra $5 off at their store. Read about the whole thing here, including a full list.

Many of these films have been reviewed on the site. They are:

Alphaville
Carlos Saura’s Flamenco Trilogy (Eclipse Series 6)
Diary of a Country Priest
The Fallen Idol
Gervaise
Le jour se lève
Last Holiday
Mayerling
Pierrot le fou
The Small Back Room
Trafic
The White Sheik

Word is these titles are now part of the Studio Canal deal with Lionsgate, and given the latter studio's somewhat checkered history in terms of the technical quality of their discs, you may want to consider snatching up as much of these as you can. (Dare I buy the Pierrot le fou Blu-Ray in case I ever do get a Blu player?)

You should get a Blu-Ray player (get an Oppo!!!), cause the picture on the WAGES OF FEAR Criterion is amazing!
