Also take note that Tiny Furniture is now available in DVD via the Criterion Collection which by the way some people were really angry about. It seems that nasty comments were left on blogrolls saying in a nutshell that Criterion was diluting its brand by getting into bed with a 24-year-old woman, that the Criterion Collection was for classics.
Here’s the questions that Playlist asked Lena about the controversy:
You’ve no doubt heard about the controversy surrounding Criterion’s choice to include “Tiny Furniture” in their roster. You have your fare share of detractors.
I try not to read too much blogroll. I’m on Twitter all the time, and I’m very aware of what people are saying about me on there, so when Criterion announced the DVD, a small but ardent group of people said, “This will not happen.” People were really pissed. I was like, “You don’t have to buy it! Calm down!” But I do understand that to them, Criterion is about classics and nothing could be less classic than a digital film by a 24-year-old girl. I understood them, but I’m really grateful that Criterion has stood by the movie.
The DVD sounds great. Nora Ephron interviews her. I think I might actually have to get it.
