2019 Criterion Challenge List Thread

30 Days of Criterion - Discussion Thread
August 31st (dusk) - October 1st (dawn)






September is upon us, so it's time to actually watch those Criterion discs we bought in July during the Barnes & Noble sale and get as many viewings out of our Criterion Channel subscriptions as we can! CardiffGiant has done a fantastic job hosting this challenge the last several years, and here's the overview of this challenge that he's crafted:

The goal of the Criterion Challenge is to watch Criterion content and share your experience with the rest of us. There is no specific number goal, no winners, no losers, no prizes.

Don't fixate on volume. The Criterion Collection is well known for pioneering supplemental features such as commentary tracks, documentaries, and video essays, so dive into these things when you can!

There will be a separate thread to include your lists as linked above. A daily journal sort of entry is recommended for your list. Since counting is not required or "scored" in any way, you are free to be as creative as you wish in how you list items. Bolding of your item titles is encouraged, if only to make them stand out to allow others to quickly see if they have seen the same items and wish to comment. Give reviews. Even if it's just a mini-review, a simple /, or a one word description. Be creative and personalize it however you wish - use one post for the whole month, daily posts, weekly posts, give reviews, provide IMDb links, add YouTube videos, add images, etc. It's recommended that you provide a link to your list(s) in your signature for easy access. Last year's List Thread should give you a good idea how participants format their lists.

What qualifies?
  • Any film, short, video or supplemental feature that has been, or is scheduled to be, released by Criterion/Eclipse qualifies. View the library here.
  • Additionally, any title streaming on The Criterion Channel is eligible for this challenge. This includes content previously featured on the Channel that has since expired. Check this spreadsheet (credit to a Reddit user, morbusiff).
  • Titles originally released on Criterion Laserdisc are also eligible for the challenge.
  • The film does not have to be watched on an actual Criterion disc. You may watch the film on any format, provided that it is the same film that Criterion has released. For example, the film 12 Angry Men was released by Criterion on DVD/BD. But you don't have to watch the movie on that particular DVD/BD. You can watch it on VHS, on broadcast TV, on FilmStruck (the new official streaming home of the Criterion Collection), anywhere else that may have the streaming rights, or any of the other DVD/BD releases 12 Angry Men has had.
Criterion titles occasionally appear on broadcast television. Keep an eye on this discussion thread for upcoming broadcasts.

Optional Checklist

The checklist is completely optional. It is just a "fun" inclusion to give one a sense of accomplishment, to help one diversify viewing, or to use as a guide on what to watch next.

Each film can count for multiple sections, but only one check mark per section. Example: Pierrot le fou could count for the 1960's in Decades and Jean-Luc Godard in People, but it could not count for Godard and Anna Karina in People. You would need a separate film for Karina.

Re: 2019 Criterion Challenge List Thread



First Time Viewing: 1
Television: 12
Streaming: 5
DVD: 3
Blu-ray: 2


Sept. 1
1. Top Hat (1935), Criterion Channel--Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are pure silver screen fantasy, taking Depression-era audiences away from their troubles for a couple of hours.

Sept. 2
2.Armageddon (1998), #40, TV--Michael Bay's delicate comedy of manners captures the mores of the late 90s in this depiction of the courtship of a young coal miner for a young woman who is the daughter of his supervisor
3. Tootsie (1982), #738, TV--Dustin Hoffman makes a convincing woman, although I'm sure he'd be crucified on Twitter by the uberwoke for playing this role.
4. The Most Dangerous Game (1932), #46, DVD--Hunky Joel McCrea plays a big game hunter who becomes the prey of a mad Russian count who hunts people.

Sept. 8
5. Heaven's Gate (1980), #636, TV--Michael Cimino's take on the cattle wars of the 1880s on the Wyoming frontier reaches toward David Lean's epic imaginings, but despite a stellar cast and some amazing cinematography, it really doesn't work. I can see why this movie tanked so spectacularly on its release.

Sept. 11
6. The Great Dictator (1940), #565, TV--It's a sad commentary on the contemptible slide towards dictatorship under that fat orange jackass that Chaplin's anti-fascist satire resonates just as strongly as it did 80 years ago.
7. Paths of Glory (1957), #536, TV--Kubrick's first masterwork with a magnificent performance from Kirk Douglas
8. 12 Angry Men (1957), #591, TV--If only we had more citizens like Henry Fonda's character.

Sept. 14
9. Rashomon (1950), #138, TV--Fantastic movie. I'm not sure if Kurosawa created fractured narrative, but this movie's style still influences film and TV today.

Sept. 15
10. The Philadelphia Story (1940), #901, TV--One of the best rom coms ever made.

Sept. 16
11. Fantastic Planet (1973), #920, Blu--nothing about this film seems at all grounded in reality, it's a French dreamscape about a human boy raised as a pet by a giant aliens, with a kickass soundtrack.
12.That Hamilton Woman (1941), #487, Criterion Channel--Apparently this was Winston Churchill's favorite movie. The story is told as a flashback, told by an old, embittered and impoverished Emma Hamilton after she was abandoned by society after Admiral Nelson's death. Vivian Leigh turns in a career-best performance.

Sept. 19
13. Pan's Labyrinth (2006), #838, TV--This is probably Del Toro's greatest film so far, a delicate fairy tale dreamt by an abused child in Franco's Spain, with some amazing visual effects.
14. In the Heat of the Night (1967), #959, TV--Although the racial dynamics are less astonishing now 50 years on,Poitier and Steiger's performances are legendary.
15. The Wicker Man (1973), Criterion Channel-- I'm surprised this hasn't been released on Blu by Criterion ages ago. It seems very much their kind of film.
16. Kind Hearts and Coronets (1948), #325, DVD-One of the funniest and blackest of the Ealing Studio comedies. Alec Guinness plays 8 roles. i wonder what Peter Sellers might have made of this film if it had been made 20 years later.

Sept. 21
17.Young Mr. Lincoln (1939), #320, TV--Worthy, albeit heavily fictionalized, biopic of Abe Lincoln, one of Henry Fonda's best performances.
18.Eating Raoul (1982), #625, TV--It's a shame Paul Bartel didn't have a longer career as a director because his slyly gay, subversive take on California suburbia is hysterical

Sept. 22
19. 1984 (1984), #984, DVD--Michael Radford created one of the most arresting opening sequences as he depicts a Trump rally, er, the Two-Minute Hate that allows the oppressed citizens of Oceania vent their anger at the Party's approved target and channel their adoration for Big Brother. I had to watch this on DVD because my Twilight Time Blu doesn't work.
20. A Face in the Crowd (1957), #970, Blu--Andy Griffith's performance as the evil, manipulative entertainer Lonseome Rhoads should have been nominated for an Oscar. Lonesome Rhoads could not be more different from the affable sheriff from Mayberry.

Sept. 25
21. Battleship Potemkin (1925), Criterion Channel--Eisenstein's direction makes this film a landmark in political film.
22. It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963), #692, Watch TCM--I wouldn't call this all-star epic comedy a knee-slapper, but it's a really enjoyable film, the kind of movie you'd put on during a slow weekend afternoon..

Sept. 26
23. Harold and Maude (1971), #608 Criterion Channel--Harold And Maude speaks to the misunderstood weird kid inside all of us. It's both comedic and tragic, and for a sad movie that focuses on death it is curiously life-affirming.

Sept. 29
24.Caesar and Cleopatra (1945), Eclipse #20, TV--The set decoration and costumes are stunning in this film version of GBS's play. Despite the star power of Claude Rains and Viven Leigh, the movie seems too mannered and dull.
25. Moonrise Kingdom (2012), #776, TV--Wes Anderson has cornered the market on twee eccentricity. Edward Norton shows some deft comic chops as a scoutmaster.

Sept. 30
26. Nights of Cabiria (1957), #49 Criterion Channel--Giuletta Massina plays vulnerability like nobody else. The musical remake Sweet Charity is much lighter than this tragi-comedy
27. Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979), Blu-Ray--Werner Herzog's remake of the FW Murnau vampire classic Nosferatu is drenched with foreboding from the first frame, as Popul Vuh's music plays over shots of mummified children. Klaus Kinski is chilling as the vampire Graf Orlok who is draining the life from the people of Bremen.
28. Videodrome (1982), #240, DVD--David Cronenberg thought TV would devour humanity, if only he had foreseen Twitter!
29. Night of the Living Dead (1968), Blu-I think NOTLD stil works today 51 years later is its B/W photography, which gives the film a timeless feel, and how Romero uses the camera to throw the viewer off with odd angles and shadows.
Oct. 1 (pre-dawn)
30. Cat People (1942), DVD--
Val Lewton gets the credit for this film's success, but it's Jacques Tourneur's moody, atmospheric direction that sells this film.
