A Criterion correction

Just under a year ago, on this very blog, I blurted out how excited I was that a friend had sent me a massive DVD set of classic art house films distributed by Janus. Several of you wrote to suggest which of the 50 art house classics I should see first I soon cancelled my Netflix membership, in the expectation that Jane and I would turn the basement into our personal Brattle and watch a film a week.

The year’s nearly over. As they say on Marketplace, let’s do the numbers:

Number of the 50 classic films that I saw this year: 1
Number of those that I saw with Jane: 0

I’m committed to doing better in 2008, but it’s not like I’m going to be able to make the case for The Seventh Seal as a date movie…
