Thanks to an excited message from my pal Chris, I'm now aware of the November 2008 releases for Criterion, and boy are they great... I dare say 11/08 may be the best month Criterion has had since they first dotted Grand Illusion's spine with a 1 way back when.
I've become very conservative with my DVD purchases of late. In fact, the only one I've bought, this year, was a $7.99 copy of Nashville from Borders. I'm glad I practiced restraint, because in November my DVD consumption is going to rise 300% with these undeniable classics.
[NOTE: There is a fourth film being released in November that I've never heard of. So it could be an even sweeter month for you if you bop on over to Criterion's site and like what you see.]
