The film streaming service from TCM & Criterion Collection goes live in 13 days — October 19th. $6.99/month for the basic service, $10.99/month (or $99/year) for Filmstruck + Criterion Channel

looks good that they have the commentaries, extras etc of Criterion discs, or at least some of that kind of content. i hope this won't mean the end of the Criterion blu rays. i'm expecting 'that market' will always want the 36 page books and fancy packaging and such. i know i will.

i wonder why the TCM lot and the Criterion gang decided to get into bed together. i mean Criterion doesn't seem like an obvious match for Ted 'Colourization' Turner.
― piscesx, Thursday, 6 October 2016 13:30 (four years ago) link
Turner hasn't been involved in years...? TCM is a pretty good channel. Have they ever shown a colorized film?
Cons: US only, no Roku support at launch, extreme vagueness (how many films? "HUNDREDS of films!")
― aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Thursday, 6 October 2016 13:37 (four years ago) link
But I'll sign up, at least for a few months.
I'll wait to start until Criterion joins up in November. I'll drop the $99 for their catalog alone.

― EZ Snappin, Thursday, 6 October 2016 15:15 (four years ago) link
Not bad, if you do the $99 once-a-year payment, it's about $20 cheaper than a year of Netflix. Is there any way to browse the TCM catalog at the moment?
― erry red flag (f. hazel), Thursday, 6 October 2016 15:25 (four years ago) link
On their FB page they said Criterion will be available at launch.
I want to sign up but my two devices (Nvidia Shield TV and XB1) aren't supported.

Been reading a lot of information on the website and elsewhere, but haven't seen anything that says the TCM movies will also be part of the package. I have a nagging feeling that they're not. Also wonder if the Criterion movies will be available in 1080, instead of the 720 now on Hulu.
― Jazzbo, Thursday, 6 October 2016 18:17 (four years ago) link
I don't think everything on nightly at TCM will be on there but a selection of TCM-sequel films.
I'm going to guess it will be like Mubi with a larger rotating library plus Criterion.

yeah, TCM's tweet that filmstruck "will focus on indie, foreign & cult titles, not Old Hollywood. Some limited titles, not many" considerably dampened my enthusiasm.

This weird in-between time where the biggest events still happen on old-fashioned cable TV, the "prestige" TEH DISCOURSE TV shows are on Netflix, film is either exploded across multiple competing streaming services or iTunes rental downloads that disappear after 24 hours or totally unavailable, video stores are rare — is totally excruciating.
― Whiney G. Weingarten, Friday, 7 October 2016 14:04 (four years ago) link
whiney otm, i feel a deep nostalgia for, like, 2008-2010, when a full decade of DVD production had led to lot of foreign/classic/arthouse stuff to be available, and Netflix was still in the business of providing just about any DVD that got produced.
― intheblanks, Friday, 7 October 2016 16:00 (four years ago) link

― Whiney G. Weingarten, Friday, 7 October 2016 16:04 (four years ago) link
maybe i just wasn't reading the early filmstruck announcements carefully, but it seems like everyone i know was expecting it to have a major focus on classic hollywood, given tcm's involvement. My guess is that getting streaming rights to that old hollywood stuff is probably just insanely complicated and, from a business perspective, not worth the investment of time and resources. Still disappointing though.
― intheblanks, Friday, 7 October 2016 16:06 (four years ago) link
I've never watched any Criterions on Hulu but that's because their interface is such a disaster - you don't know what's streaming in HD, there's no easy way to sort the entire Criterion list, etc. Higher hopes for this, though I'm a lot less inclined toward a burning need to watch Truffaut than when I was 23.
― Kiarostami bag (milo z), Friday, 7 October 2016 16:30 (four years ago) link
Their interface/searching/tagging/credits is all pretty awful in comparison to Netflix and even Amazon Prime. That said, damn I'm gonna have to rush out some screenings before they leave. Better get Lady Snowblood queued up.

They have someone responding to comments on Facebook, putting on the shiny happy face but being really vague with specific questions.
Some Guy Named Dave: Your Criterion selection seems to be quite limited. Are you ever going to offer the same number of Criterion titles as Hulu - over 900?
FilmStruck: Hi Dave, on the #CriterionChannel side you will find the largest selection of Criterion releases available to stream
Me: That doesn't really answer the question that was asked...
FilmStruck: #CriterionChannel has the largest Criterion selection available streaming, more than was ever available elsewhere.
Me: Ozu on Hulu: 30 features, 2 shorts and a trailerOzu on Filmstruck: looks like 18 features
― aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Wednesday, 2 November 2016 01:41 (three years ago) link
Huh, why would it have less than Hulu does? That doesn't make any sense to me. I did notice through a cursory search that they had at least two titles not on Hulu (Godard's Every Man for Himself and Yang's A Brighter Summer Day), so I was hopeful that maybe it had more than Hulu.
― intheblanks, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 02:14 (three years ago) link
It doesn't have all the Oshima titles that are currently on Hulu either
― intheblanks, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 02:15 (three years ago) link
I'm hoping they're still loading up the buffet table. They have quite a few things that aren't on Hulu -- Blood Simple, that JFK documentary stuff. They got The Killing of a Chinese Bookie back, which disappeared from Hulu a year or more ago.

It came from a land down under . . . From the early seventies through the mideighties, a resurgence of government funding for national film production gave birth to a generation of brave, unconventional new voices who made Australia the home to a brief but bright-burning cinematic renaissance. Among the filmmakers who emerged from this artistic flowering were pivotal figures like Peter Weir, George Miller, Gillian Armstrong, Bruce Beresford, Fred Schepisi, and Phillip Noyce, many of whom went on to successful international careers. Encompassing subversive visions of Australian history (PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK, MY BRILLIANT CAREER), dystopian science-fiction cult classics (MAD MAX, THE CARS THAT ATE PARIS), groundbreaking coming-of-age dramas (THE DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND, PUBERTY BLUES), and beyond, these formally bold, thematically provocative films delved into the intricacies of Australian society and identity with newfound fearlessness. Among their most urgent concerns was for the country’s relationship to and mistreatment of its Indigenous people, as seen in works like THE CHANT OF JIMMIE BLACKSMITH, WALKABOUT, STORM BOY, and THE LAST WAVE, the last three of which all star legendary Aboriginal actor David Gulpilil, who stands as one of the movement’s most enduring faces.

I don't have a text list, but here's a Letterboxd list of the September titles, including Sátántangó.

I'm still far more likely to rewatch all the Albert Brooks films than I am to give Sátántangó a go, frankly.

Sátántangó is worth watching though, even if in increments
am looking forward to seeing Miguel Gomes' Tabu

finally watched Elmer Gantry tonight, I liked it but mainly for Burt Lancaster's role

lol @ Criterion Channel sliding ever closer to my own collection (a fate that I can imagine true cineastes finding lamentable).
― OrificeMax (Old Lunch), Thursday, 24 September 2020 18:25 (one month ago) link
Larry Cohen AND Park Chan Wook in the same month. The world outside is a shitshow, but there some things I can still believe in.
Don't SLEEP on Deathdream.

Season of the Witch, Strait-Jacket, and The Witch Who Came from the Sea are the sleepers I'll recommend.
― OrificeMax (Old Lunch), Thursday, 24 September 2020 18:53 (one month ago) link
Seconding The Witch Who Came from the Sea which doesn't totally work but commits impressively to being weird

Really love Christine out of that list as well.

Watched Death Line aka Raw Meat the other night and had a great time, hysterical film-stealing performance by Donald Pleasance

I've seen many of those Joan Crawfords (Harriet Craig and Possessed are tops). Anyone seen The Damned Don’t Cry?

Let’s Scare Jessica to Death is so melancholy, dreamy and great.I’ve seen it before via a hazy VHS rip (which added its own charm) but revisiting it today was well worth it.

cool, they have the version of Joan of Arc scored by Adrian Utley and Will Gregory
