Criterion Channel Watchlist

04/08/19: the new Criterion Channel launched today and so far it's looking pretty good! Now granted I wish there was just a master list of what's available on the site (and they're probably going to be adding a lot more still over the coming weeks) but just a cursory glance reveals that there's plenty of decent titles to choose from. Here's what's made it onto my watchlist so far, just in case you're also starting to explore over there, or maybe thinking about subscribing yourself (and thus helping this fine new streaming site for good cinema to run longer than its short-lived predecessor FilmStruck did).
