Awesome, they have Le Samourai, which I'm dying to see, but Barnes and Noble doesn't bother to carry.

Re: Criterion 24-hour FLASH SALE 50% off!

Just scored:

Eraserhead
Macbeth
The Innocents
The Big Chill
All That Jazz
The Essential Jacques Demy Boxed Set


It's a shame that they don't allow discount on pre-orders. I wanted that Tati set. Oh well - this new order here will probably grant me the $50 rewards certificate, so i may come right back and put that towards the the Tati set. We'll see.

I only want Macbeth right now, and Vanishing isn't out until the 28th. Oh welp, I'll wait for the B&N November Sale, I have a gift card too I've been saving. Thanks to OP.

Awesome! I still had a $50 GC from a previous order, so I got Eraserhead, The Innocents, and Insomnia for $3.30 a pop.

I am hoping for the November BN sale to time out well to get the Tati set on sale.

I went ahead and picked up a few from this flash sale:

Macbeth
Ali: Fear Eats the Soul
Eraserhead
Y Tu Mama Tambien
Love Streams

Re: Criterion 24-hour FLASH SALE 50% off!

I wonder if these are the corrected ERASERHEAD discs or will we have to return them for replacements?

I'm going to wait for the B&N sale next month. Hopefully I will be as lucky as the July sale when I was able to use a coupon to get each title for $10.

Anyone else having trouble with the site? I keep getting "application error" during the checkout process and I can't complete the order.

Just hit the back button, and it should take you to the previous page. When you submit again, it should go thru. It did it to me on the credit card page, shipping page, and final submission page.

The email I got about the sale included this blurb:
And just in time for the sale, our new director-approved edition of Eraserhead is back in stock!
I assume that meant the corrected version as I don't think they'd re-stock the erroneous one.
