Re: 7th Annual Criterion Challenge - Discussion Thread

Re: 6th Annual Criterion Challenge - Discussion Thread

I'm glad you liked it! I also plan around the checklist and I have Letter Never Sent or Weekend (Godard) listed for that spine number range. I blind bought both of them, so I'm hoping I have time...
