This just in from Criterion...
Dear Criterion collectors,

Head on over to Barnes & Noble, either a store or online, and dive in to their 50% off bonanza on all Criterion movies. Every Criterion and Eclipse title, Blu-ray or DVD, is on sale, including exciting new releases like Kiss Me Deadly, People on Sunday, Black Moon, and Raffaello Matarazzo’s Runaway Melodramas. The sale runs through August 1.

Here are my Soul Food picks from the collection...
