At Last! Criterion DVD's at Book Soup

Book Soup is now carrying the entire line of Criterion DVD’s. Yes, as you shop for your favorite book you can now purchase film masterpieces by one of the most respected DVD companies in the world. It’s a beautiful marriage between the book and the classy cinema.

And you can mix and match for instance you can purchase any of these DVD’s by Jean-Luc Godard and our various books on Godard,

"Forever Godard" Edited by Michael Temple

"Band of Outsiders" by Jean-Luc Godard

"Masculin Feminin" by Jean-Luc Godard

Or Godard's masterpiece with Brigitte Bardot, "Contempt" matched with Alberto Moravia's insanely genius novel "Contempt."

Or how about an evening of Marquis de Sade with Pasolini's masterpiece "Salo" and after you can read the original source for the film, "120 Days of Sodom and Other Writings."

Or how about the classic film "Rashomon" by Kurosawa with the original and magnificent book by Akutagawa. How many stores can be told?

Or for your existential moody types we have Robert Bresson's severe yet beautiful "Mouchette" and the novel of the same name by Georges Bernanos

That's a great idea! I loved it when Skylight books started stocking Criterion DVDs over 6 months ago, and I 'm sure I'll love buying them at your store.
