    Is this related to the Criterion Blu-Ray etc? I must say I’m a collector and a fan of their releases; great quality and special features…but unfortunately most of my personal favourite movies are only available in the US (I’m in UK). I wish their releases were universally compatible…

    FYC:

    Swinton, Weerasethakul Memoria, (Best Actress, Director)
    Efira, Rampling, Wilson Benedetta (Best Actress, Supporting Actress/Actor)
    Rapace Lamb (Best Actress)
    Stewart, Hawkins, Spall Spencer (Best Actress, Supporting Actress/Actor)

    I LOVE that movie. It has to be the greatest movie about Jesus.

    Add After Hours to the Criterion Collection, please.

    Kinetic, wild, frenetic, propulsive, and anxiety inducing.

    Among Scorsese’s top 5 best films, and the true blueprint for the Safdie Brothers career defining films Good Time and Uncut Gems.

    Watch it!!
