Criterion always looks so good. I’m jealous, I’d like to have such dvd collection out here in France. We have some fine collections though and cheaper but Criterion is still the best.
My film analysis lecturer doesn’t often buy Criterion simply because when you start you cannot stop. Practically everything they release is worth buying. I agree somewhat. I don’t think I could handle a collection like that in Australia. I’d go broke.
on IMDB it says it was remade as john woo’s THE KILLER. wow
Not remade. But Le Samourai was definitely a big inspiration for Woo. It can be seen mostly in the long coats Chow Yun Fat and co wear. Such coats are impractical in Hong Kong because of the tropical heat. It was all about style.
