Criterion Top 10s and MySpace

Criterion Top 10s and MySpace

The great folks at The Criterion Collection have invited me to participate in their regular “Top 10 Lists,” an ongoing selection of film industry picks from the company’s amazing catalog. I’m honored to be asked, as I’m joining folks like Richard Linklater, Jane Campion, Dennis Lehane, and many others… I’ve decided to share my Top 10 list here, though my blurb on each film’s inclusion will be saved for the eventual column. It’s tough picking only 10 films from such a long and amazing list as the batch of films at Criterion. But, I made it work, sort of. Again, it will kind of make sense when you read the blurbs…

1. Do the Right Thing (1989)

2. Grey Gardens (1975)

3. High and Low (1963)

4. Hoop Dreams (1994)

5. Rushmore (1998)

6. John Cassavetes: Five Films (Box Set, various years)

7. Tokyo Story (1953)

8. Wild Strawberries (1957)

9. Slacker (1991)

10. The Rules of the Game (1939)

In the meantime, check out The Criterion Collection’s new MySpace page. Talk about stepping into the new age. As they’re saying, “New look, new line… coming this fall.”
