The Alkek Library has acquired the complete Criterion Collection of nearly 500 films, and will continue to supplement as more films are published. In order to find this DVD collection you may either search by Keyword and quotes: "Criterion Collection" in the catalog or browse the DVD shelves on the third floor under the call number: PN1997 .A1 C75 1998. The Criterion Collection offers numerous treasures such as the films of Akira Kurosawa, Federico Fellini, Ingmar Bergman, Jean Luc Godard, David Lean, Orson Welles and many others.
Each film is presented uncut, in its original aspect ratio, as its maker intended it to be seen. The supplements offered enable viewers to appreciate the films in context, through audio commentaries by filmmakers and scholars, restored director’s cuts, deleted scenes, documentaries, shooting scripts, early shorts, and storyboards. Be sure to check out this unique and fabulous collection.
