Lost in the Movies: #WatchlistScreenCaps: Criterion Collection

#WatchlistScreenCaps: Criterion Collection

Criterion Collection

The following is a collection of screen-caps from every single Criterion Collection DVD I watched between February 12, 2013 and February 12, 2014 (I did not include Criterion titles streamed on Hulu or Netflix). Links lead to previous pieces on a given film. Most titles are organized by spine number; Eclipse and Essential Art House titles appear after all the Criterions. For a complete lineup of everything I watched digitally during this time, visit my complete #WatchlistScreenCaps chronology.
