amoeba criterion top 10

Starting next week, we're holding a huge sale on Criterion Collection movies at Amoeba Hollywoodfrom June 18 through July 4, get 25% off all new Criterion DVDs and Blu-rays. You can read more about that sale here. To kick it off, we gathered our collective heads to pick our favorite Criterion movies on disc. Criteria varies, but generally these discs offer something special beyond the movie itself. Check out our picks below.

Band of Outsiders (1964)

band of outsiders criterion blu-rayJean-Luc Godard’s French New Wave classic gets a pristine high-definition digital transfer on both the DVD and Blu-ray, while excerpts from the documentary La nouvelle vague par elle-même offer behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Godard. And a short film by the great French New Wave filmmaker Agnes Varda featuring much of the Band of Outsiders cast is just icing.

This month we’re holding a HUGE sale on all Criterion Collection movies.

From June 18 through July 4, get 25% off all new Criterion movies on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in-store at Amoeba Hollywood. And July 4 only, we’re also having another MEGA sale at all three stores—20% off all used Blu-ray and 10% off all used vinyl! (Used Blu-ray and Criterion discounts cannot be combined.)

To celebrate, we’re holding a FREE screening of Criterion flick Valerie and Her Week of Wonders Thursday, June 25 at 8 p.m. at Umami Burger, just across the street at Space15Twenty. Join us for this ravishingly shot, enchantingly scored film by director Jaromil Jires. This surrealist 1970 film is among the most beautiful oddities of the Czechoslovak New Wave, a fairy tale in which 13-year-old Valerie moves through a mind-bending dreamscape full of vampires, lustful priests and thieves wearing weasel masks.

Drinks may be purchased at Umami and enjoyed in the courtyard along with free popcorn. Space and seating is limited.
