10 Criterion Documentaries You Should Buy This Month


My latest post for Sound on Sight (and first in a while) went up over the weekend. It’s a plea to cinephiles everywhere to consider some non-fiction when they make their half-off Criterion purchases this month at Barnes and Noble. A new Blu-grade of Hearts and Minds, the infinitely interesting Qatsi trilogy, the 3-D Pina, the greatest documentary ever made—there are plenty to choose from. (You can and should also consider Shoah, which I rather embarrassingly forgot to include…thanks commenters!)

Click on over to Sound on Sight to check it out. I’ll be following it up all month with more in-depth reviews of some of these films, as well as a few more Criterion-centric posts on JohnLikesMovies.com, including a lengthy round-up of everything I bought this month.
