Criterion + B&N = Excitement

...for me anyway.

Rumor has it the 50% off (maybe more depending on a few things) Criterion sale at Barnes & Noble will start July 12th. I, naturally, have been planning for this for months. The coupons seem to be running out (they have changed a lot of little fine print things to prevent coupon overuse) so I had to be a bit more creative. I bought a $25 gift card from the gift card exchange for 15% off, and then I earned 2 $25 cards by filling out surveys online. That makes $75 to use on the sale for about $20 (and time filling out surveys). My wish list this time is smaller, so that helps out as well.

Must gets:

-Eclipse Series 27: Raffaello Matarazzo's Runaway Melodramas (this sounds right up my alley)

-People on Sunday

-Zazie dans la metro

-The Music Room

-Leon Morin, Priest

After that:

-Diabolique (reissue)

-WR Mysteries of the Organism

-Fish Tank

-Children of Paradise


-The Great Dictator (this should be a "must" but that cover is god-awful)

-Crazed Fruit

-Red Beard

Can't wait!
