We had to live without Criterion for three month, until our damaged TV situation was finally resolved, so we lost our feel for it.
As I started searching on Film Noir I found precious little there - to the point of being shocked! I wanted to see In a Lonely Place, but alas, not there!
Has something change there in the last three month? I don't recall feeling that frustrated with its selection before.
Anyway... could you share here your recent successes with it?
On positive side - our TV ordeal is also a great success story. Our 8 year old plasma was damaged by a lightning strike, and we got a nice replacement - brand spanking new 77" OLED Gallery model... for no out of pocket $$$. And it was all for no asking on our part. The insurance company did it all on its own.
Well... I think we did end up spending about $200 of our money.
Try the TCM app on streaming stick. Excellent film selection with beautifully restored prints presented in the proper aspect ratio. Last night I watched Anne of the Thousand Days and Badlands, it's my new go-to for serious movie watching.
...we have already seen - confirming my impression of rather slim pickings there. It certainly looks to me that they reduced their selection.
I just rejoined last month and saw alerts for films leaving at the end of the month. I dread the day and its clearly coming sooner than later when there is nothing good to watch having seen it all. To a high degree Humanity seems to me to have spent its creative force and apart from regurgitating the past successes has very little new or insightful to offer in any of the creative arts fields. Maybe that's just my jaded mind having absorbed the bulk of such output from the past 80 years. maybe I won't even recognize something great that is conceived tomorrow.
