An eye-catching line.

I love the cover for Criterion’s new edition The Thin Red Line.

    Funny Games’ cover takes “less-is-more” to the extreme.

    Days of Heaven’s cover is fantastic. I’m wondering when The New World is going to get the Criterion treatment…I’m sure that cover would be incredible.

    I love Eric Anderson’s artwork for brother Wes’s Criterion discs.

    …I think the blog spam-bot might have eaten the first part of my comment. I just mentioned loving the new Criterion cover of Walkabout released about a month ago.

    Their soon to be re-released cover of “Black Narcissus” is also a stunner!

    I should mention, I was referring to their brand new 2010 remaster release of Walkabout (DVD and Blu-ray) — not the older 1998 Criterion release of the film.

    Yeah, I love this design too. The Criterionistas never fail to impress.

    My favorite design to-date was the cover they did for Nic Roeg’s “Walkabout.” Stunning!

    That is a nice cover. In the digital age, they sure make hardcopies worth having! The Dead Ringers cover is nice, although I think it is the same as the original.

    I like the covers for M, The Third Man, The Seventh Seal and Paris Texas. But I have to say, The Thin Red Line’s cover is one of the best.
