In case you haven’t heard, the Criterion Collection will begin streaming content via Filmstruck sometime in the next few months. Presumably, once that happens the company will cease to have a presence on Hulu.
With that in mind, here are some of my favorites among the films available on the Hulu Plus Criterion channel that have not, as far as I know, been released on DVD or Blu-Ray in the States. Get them before they’re gone.
The Neighbor’s Wife and Mine (Gosha, 1931)
Carnival in Flanders (Feyder, 1935)
History is Made at Night (Borzage, 1937)
The Spy in Black (Powell, 1939)
L’Amore (Rossellini, 1948)
Carmen Comes Home (Kinoshita, 1951)
Wild Geese (Toyoda, 1953)
The Crucified Lovers (Mizoguchi, 1954)
Dreams (Bergman, 1955)
Floating Clouds (Naruse, 1955)
Three Cases of Murder, particularly the segment with Orson Welles (O’Ferrall, 1955)
Flowing (Naruse, 1956)
Odd Obsession, aka Kagi (Ichikawa, 1959)
Room at the Top (Clayton, 1959)
Devi (Ray, 1960)
Three Daughters (Ray, 1961)
Black Lizard (Inoue, 1968)
The Cremator (Herz, 1969)
The Ear (Kachyna, 1970)
Milou en Mai (Malle, 1990)
Jacquot de Nantes (Varda, 1991)
Shit, I need to watch ’em on Hulu while I can. Have to say, I’m really not liking this diversification of platforms. Oh well, it’s been nice these past few years with just Netflix, Hulu and Amazon covering all my bases.
Hard to predict how we’ll be watching movies a few years from now, that’s for sure. I suspect all of these titles will eventually show up on the new service, but it may take a while, and who knows what it’ll cost. I think people are assuming it’ll cost more than Hulu.
