The Criterion Collection is the canon of film, every DVD beautifully presented and every movie certified as ambitious, significant, and challenging. Don’t have time to watch all 600? Here’s a supercut that includes them all.
As we approach the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, one of the most poignant tributes to the World Trade Center is this compilation of the twin towers’ iconic appearances in feature films.
My favorite is the Oscar-winning documentary “Man on Wire” because it includes some of the history of the building’s construction and because it reminds us of a time when the towers were used for whimsy and a George Mallory-esque “because it’s there.”
