Criterion Out Of Print Sale: Diary of a Country Priest, Fallen Idol...

A number of Criterion titles are going out of print, the StudioCanal catalogue, which is going over to Lions gate at the end of March, with no indication when they will become available again. Titles include Bresson's DIARY OF A COUNTRY PRIEST, Carol Reed's THE FALLEN IDOL from a Graham Greene short story, and Criterion's "spine number 1" release, GRAND ILLUSION. You save between $11 and $13 per disk below the catalogue list price. Click here for a full list of the sale DVDs. (All available at Videomatica)

And while we're talking Criterion, don't forget Rossellini's WAR TRILOGY, which just came out - there's a great Mike Hertenstein write-up at Filmwell. Also brand new, Wim Wenders' PARIS, TEXAS. (Already available at Videomatica)

And don't forget you can stream full-quality Criterion releases at their Online Cinematheque, titles like AU REVOIR LES ENFANTS, GOD'S COUNTRY, SALESMAN, Tarkovsky's SOLARIS, LA STRADA and THE VIRGIN SPRING. (Also, of course, all available at Videomatica)

If you Haven't seen Forbidden Games, you should check it out. It's great and probably fits well into the Soul food theme.
