things i like part 1

Criterion Films. I know it is cliche but I just love how they act as friends to lovers of film everywhere.

Whether they are overlooked classics or newer successes, they love them just the same, so they restore them or do whatever must be done to them, beautifully package them up, and put them into the hands of people everywhere. This is especially nice for older films that one would have to wait until Turner Classic Movies decides to play it at a strange and obscure time. It's simply lovely!

But the main reason I love them is as I mentioned above, the absolutely beautiful covers! Each one fits the mood and energy of the film it is for, practically begging you to watch the movie. Yet another testament to pretty packages!
