Very nice.

Sacre bleu!

American TV shows are 19 minutes long: if your TV just decides to turn itself off and takes 60 seconds to turn back on, you've missed over 5% of the programme.

not missing much

xp, full film list not yet on the app tho'

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 12 April 2019 22:07 (three months ago) link

Nope. And in the filter function, they created a button for the 1900s (0 results) but forgot the button for the 1910s. You can do that manually in the URL and get yr 13 results.

Looks like the full film list won't come to the app or iOS. From the email they sent out this afternoon --

The number one request was for an “all films” list, and just in time for your viewing pleasure here it is! This desktop-only feature will allow you to see all the films on the Criterion Channel and organize them by title, director, year, and country. We hope this helps you navigate the more than 1,500 titles available now on the service!

i imagine the app will improve over the upcoming month. Even so, they've rolled out kinda haphazardly tbh.

I mean, this is a boutique proposition, and for clearing the rights on this library alone, it’s cool. I was able to send off my Friday with Querelle and I was very happy.

Is there a reason why some Criterion titles are apparently not available to stream? I subscribed to Filmstruck from the start and never saw The Harder They Come pop up, and it's not listed on the new channel, either.

Prickly rightsholder one presumes.

don't mock my smock or i'll clean your clock (silby), Saturday, 13 April 2019 18:21 (three months ago) link

Same reason Netflix or Prime don't have things, they don't own the streaming rights.

The All Films list is nice, but its usefulness is limited in that there is no way to use it to add films to one's own list, even by clicking through to the film.

Hans Holbein (Chinchilla Volapük), Saturday, 13 April 2019 21:12 (three months ago) link

I noticed that, very frustrating.

enjoyed the bonus features for Wanda today
the documentary was kinda boring (all about acting!) but i enjoyed the interviews and hearing a little more from Barbara Loden herself

HOLY SHIT THAT CUKOR LINEUP!!!

"Our Betters" is WONDERFUL and iirc never even made it to VHS (let alone DVD or Blu)

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Tuesday, 30 April 2019 21:10 (two months ago) link

yeah really excited for that--I've only seen Gaslight out of that whole list

rob, Tuesday, 30 April 2019 21:33 (two months ago) link

B-b-but have you see the original Gaslight?

Theory of Every Zing (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 30 April 2019 21:35 (two months ago) link

I have not! I didn't even know it existed until you posted that, but I do love Walbrook

rob, Tuesday, 30 April 2019 21:38 (two months ago) link

screening on VHS at my house next week

"Our Betters" was pretty delightful--thanks for repping it Stevie. It's basically a filmed play but Constance Bennett and, especially, Violet Kemble-Cooper are such fun. And I don't know what to say about the last five minutes.

Also, I'm not one to swoon over women's fashion, but Bennett looks phenomenal in every scene:

I have to say, having spent the last five years in Canada at a loss for how to see classic/arty/etc cinema, this service has been a godsend. If only they'd put a My List link in the top nav.

oh, ERNEST

Had no idea Criterion was currently hosting a ton of Godzilla!

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 28 May 2019 22:49 (one month ago) link

yeah filmstruck was too, seemed like part of their marketing strategy

j., Tuesday, 28 May 2019 23:07 (one month ago) link

So the Channel will have the full edition of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, supplements and such, three and a half weeks before the disc release, as in tomorrow. That's a pretty nice trick.
