I've got a £10 voucher for CD-Wow and was thinking of buying a Criterion. Which of these should I buy?
It must be under £18 to begin with otherwise I will probably have to pay a customs fee. So far I have Straw Dogs, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Naked Lunch.
The Third Man would be my choice. Great film, lots of good extras and a fantastic print (the restoration demo is worth is on its own).
For All Mankind would be a close second. Facinating to watch and listen to the stories. Watch it with the Astronaut Identification subtitle track on as it jumps around a bit between whos talking. Great images.
Ikiru is a very good choice. Criterion have done an excellent job on it and there are some nice extras. You ought to rent Seven Samurai sometime - it's not a mindless, all sword play type samurai movie!
