To relieve cinema still withdrawing following the fall of FilmStruck, the Criterion Channel launched today, which means that most of the Criterion Collection's catalog of classical art cinema (over 1,000) has been launched. film is now available for streaming. So where should you start? For relative severity, we chose one of a masterpiece from 50 renowned directors. And then, to encourage competitors, we also listed all the other films made by each director on the channel. Think of these as starting points, the dynamics of cinematological portals of the work of the most important filmmakers at all times. You might be lost for days.
The 400 Blows (François Truffaut)
With Truffaut, why not start at the beginning? This play in 1959 is the first master of the French New Waves and is perhaps his most personal film, based on his childhood. One of the most interesting things about the Criterion version is the archival material including: extracts from Truffaut interviews from the, 60s, news footage of the film's screening, and trial footage of its stars.

Ace in the Poll (Billy Wilder)
Wilder is often recommended for a pleasant fee for the crowd The Fee Seven Years and Some Like Hotand these are certainly masterpieces, but your appreciation of Wilder will be deeper when you understand how wonderful dark and cynical his might be as well. The Apartment It's one of his best in that respect, but he was getting many black years before that – all the way back to Double Indemnity and 1951's Ace in the Poll, his follow-up Sunset Boulevard and one of the first films to question the dynamics between a questionnaire and its story. This is now the only Wilder on the channel, but it still feels relevant to the news and reports of the news cycle.
Ali: Man of Eats the Soul (Rainer Werner Fassbinder)
Repeating Douglas Sirk All That Heaven allows (available on Blu-ray Criterion, but not on the channel; there is no Sirk movie on the service yet). Its most accessible film, Ali It is a moving masterpiece about widow (Brigitte Mira) who falls in love with a young Arab man (El Hedi ben Salem). Fassbinder builds Sirk's melodrama structure and expands it to comment on the simmering racism under the surface of West Germany in the 1970s. His composition and sensitive work with character are perfectly displayed here in a film that does not introduce the sense of source material more than it is refocused with more anger and understanding.
More Fassbinder on Criteria Channel: t The American Soldier, Berlin Alexanderplatz, Avoid Holy Watch, Do Bitter Forever Petra von Kant, Briest Effi, Chinese Roulette, Eight Hours Don't Make a Day, Fear of Fear, Fox and Friends, Gods of the Plane, Katzelmacher, Lola, Love Is Colder than Death, Marriage Maria Braun, Merchant Four Seasons, Mother Kusters going to heaven, Querelle, Satan Brew, Veronika Voss, World on a Wire.
The Apu Trilogy (Satyajit Ray)
There was a time when it might seem that three of the most important films were never seen in a high quality format again. The original negatives were burned in the 1993 fire which was famous in the film laboratory of Henderson in South London. The criterion of the years of the film was re-created and eventually released 4K in 2015. This is a trilogy with more than all of the films themselves, and still they have been watching together. Panther Panchali, Aparajito, and Sansar Apur they are perfect examples of Roger Ebert's belief that large films are ways of empathy, ways of life and perspectives that we could not find otherwise.
More Ray on Criterion Channel: t Cahermore, Carlisle, The Coward, Devi, The Elephant God, Enemy People, The Hero, The Holy Man, The Home and the World, The Music Room, Rabindranath Tagore, The Stranger, Three Daughters.
Bicycle Thieves (Vittorio de Sica)
Show us a person who has taken a film theory class and we will show you someone who could appear Bicycle Thieves. He was a consequence of the years for a reason, acting as a portal for debates about shape, perspective, and tone for generations. Oscar winner of Sica's 1948 tells one of the most beloved movies in 1948 is a simple story of a hardworking man who has stolen his bike, but he does so in such a simple and effective way that he effectively redesigns movie rules. .
More of Sica on the Criteria Criteria: Age of Medicine, The Looking Children, Umberto D.
Belle de Jour (Luis Buñuel)
There are a number of films including Catherine Deneuve in the Criterion Collection, but one of her most iconic roles, and a good starting point for exploring a filmmaker's career that may be too difficult. Deneuve plays a typical French housewife who works in borders in this green style of class and sexuality, one of Buñuel's greatest adventures when released in 1967.
More Buñuel on the Criteria Criteria: t The Exterminating Angel, Robinson Crusoe, Simon of the Desert, Viridiana.
Blood Simple (Joel and Ethan Coen)
Few of the new talent leadership awards announced as high as 1984 Simple blood. For another decade or so, the Coens would have one of the best career paths of their own, and set off beloved films like them Raising Arizona, Miller's Crossing, Barton Fink, and Fargo, among others. Many of his skills were on display from the first spot of this incredible noir featuring M. Emmett Walsh, Dan Hedaya, and Frances McDormand. The special features are also here, including a discussion with HBO star Bill Hader Barry (clearly inspired by the Coens dark comedy brand), as well as contributions from Walsh and Dave Eggers.
Lars von Trier t
This area was first hit in 1996 by an enormous amount of Cinema at international level in a modern Scottish village whose lives are being influenced by his life. And watching it now, after all the stories of Von Trier's aggressive behavior and after absorbing all the misconceptions of many of the subsequent films, it is different from the first in 1996, but is worth dissolve and discuss his films. And no-one can deny the power of Emily Watson's work here, which put her Oscar nomination to Best Actor. (She should be hit.)
More Von Trier on the Channel Criteria: t Antichrist, The Element of Crime, Europa.
Breathless (Godard Luc-Luc)
It is difficult to top the front sentence of the Criterion: “It was before Breathless, and afterwards Breathless. “Indeed, not only is the international DNA of Godard 1960 in the New Wave of France, it would follow only so many of the films that are very loving at the 60s and 70s. This is not the case; it is the tone that hits Godard, one that is constantly aware of as an object of art, fashion and sexuality. Godard called an art cinema with playfulness that he never really saw, opening the eyes of hundreds of filmmakers.
More Godard on Criterion Channel: t 2 or 3 Things I Know about her, Patrick is called all the Boys, Charlotte et son Jules, Every Man for the Self, Le petit sellat, Masculin festival, Tout va bien, Une histoire d`s, Vivre sa vie, Weekend.
Contact Short (David Lean)
Sir David Lean will continue to be well known in the film hall as he redefined epic films in works such as Doctor Zhivago and Lawrence of Arabia in the 60 years. Long before that, however, he made some more personal films with Noël Coward, and the best of them is the heartbreak Contact Short Since 1945. Based on Coward's play Still Life, he reports a chance meeting in a train station with two strangers stuck in bad marriages that they can't leave. It would be hard how many films count Contact Short It has influenced the years. See where most of the romantic drama foundation was poured.
More Follow Criterion Criteria: t Blithe Spirit, Big Prospects, Hobson's Choice, We Serve, Oliver Twist, Summertime, This Happy Kiss.
Certified Copy (Abbas Kiarostami)
The criterion that he is far too big towards the European and American cinema is often criticized, but he has accepted one of Asia's most important modern filmmakers, Abbas Kiarostami of Iran, with a nice sampler of his wonderful life. You can watch films covering a wide range of career, from early 80 years to the last film, 2018 24 Frames. Certified Copy plays with perspective and form and not keeping track of the two interesting performers in the center. Juliette Binoche and William Shimell think that two people know each other first, but then the film turns in a way that we think they know each other for some time. It is a film that gives an insight into how relationships are presented on the screen without ever ending. It is intellectually and emotionally exciting, and is one of the best films in the decade.
More Kiarostami on Criteria Channel: t 24 Frames, Close-up, Taste of Cherries, Where is My House?
Chimes at Midnight (Orson Welles)
Where does one person start with Orson Welles? If you have access to its entirety, Citizen Kane It is the logical open luxury, but it is not – as well as some of the other classes that are more widely known – on the Criteria Channel.

Left From 5 to 7 (Agnès Varda)
Varda died recently at 90, which left seeing even hard cinephiles seeing if they saw enough of her influential work. How important is the history of the Varda for movies? Roger Ebert added to his love of the New Wave in 2012: “Varda is very soulful, and only a woman, I'm afraid, didn't regularly put it with Godard, Truffaut, Resnais, Chabrol. , Rivette, Rohmer, and for that reason her husband Jacques Demy. ” Left It is probably the most popular and accessible film, combining documentary techniques and fiction as the director takes the texture of life for a woman in Paris in the 60s in a way she could only.

Clouds of Sils Maria (Olivier Assayas)
Few people argue that Maria Slippers Clouds The best movie is Olivier Assayas, but it is extremely accessible, making it easier to get started than say, the 6.5-hour Carlos. Maria Sils Juliette Binoche will prepare as a famous actor who is asked to play a role in the play she starred. However, while she was in the particular role once, she must now participate in the older woman. While practicing with her assistant, Kristen Stewart, who won the Oscar French equivalent for her work here, played truth and fiction. Despite some third-level problems, this is an exciting and exciting film, and is a great way to get an example of how Assayas can be.
More Assayas on the Criterion Criteria: t Carlos, Cold Water, Summer Hours.
Cronos (Guillermo del Toro)
The only one of the three films of Blu-ray Del Toro box from the Criterion is available on the Criterion Criteria – The Devil's backbone and Pan Labyrinth these are the others – Cronos This is the first beginning of 1993 of the Oscar-winning director, a vampire film as he could do. Federico Luppi plays an antique dealer who gets a scabbard that leads to a nightmare. Del Toro has pride in creating wonderful lives with effects that cannot be fully remembered here already.
Double Life Veronique (Krzysztof Kieslowski)
If you know Krzysztof Kieslowski's work, you probably have seen it Trilogy Three Colors (Blue, White, and Red) and / or may have obtained his transcendent Dekalog, but it is absolutely possible that this 1991 laboratory went aside under your radar. Right of such supervision. Irène Jacob prepares Jacob as a Polish singer and “French” music teacher. The use of Kieslowski of the visual images is lyrical, exciting and spectacular.
More Kieslowski on the Channel Criteria: t Dall na Blind, No End, Short film about killing, A Short Film About Love, The Three Colors Trilogy.
The Gold Rush (Charles Chaplin)
No one says they don't like silent movies to have seen enough Charlie Chaplin. Often the comedies are quiet without routine preparation but in physical humor – and that feature is certainly part of the charm – but Chaplin's work has got to grips with deficiencies and he knows he's looking on the camera. His films had more humanitarian and transferable emotions than the vast majority of “talks” that followed. Perhaps the most intense part of being a Chaplin fan picking one for newcomers. No matter, they usually watch them all.
More Chaplin on Criterion Channel: The Circus, City Lights, Day Pleasure, Dog Life, The Great Dictator, The Class Idle, The Kid, King in New York, Limelight, New Age, Monsieur Verdoux, Pay Day, The Pilgrim, Shoulder Arms, Sunnyside, Bean Paris.
Gray Gardens (Albert & David Maysles)
When David and Albert Maysles were filming the Beales, did they know that they had a classic cult when they were doing? For many years, this cinematological culture of two women – Big Edie and Little Edie Beale, Jackie Onassis' s cousins - has been strikingly striking, but it has been seen in the last decade and is now considered a major documentary. it is full-time. The Maysles (and co-directors Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer) take the imagination in a way that gives a realistic view of commentary at the end of an era. This is what Camelot will emerge: co-dependent post-assimilations affixed to their procedures in a chopped house.
Hiroshima Mon Amour (Alain Resnais)
If you are to try to find out why the French New Wave was dealing with each other and consider the impact it had on other culture film, you need to know your Resisions, and this is his film. best. In addition, his first person is Emmanuelle Riva and Eiji Okada as a French actor and Japanese architect who is accustomed to the ruins of Hiroshima. He won an Oscar nomination from the Best Screen.
More Respect for Criterion: t With styrène black chant, Mon oncle d 'mérique, Muriel or Time Return, Night and Fog.
Ikiru (Akira Kurosawa)
Even if there were only a handful of Kurosawa films at Criterion, it would still be difficult to choose The Seven Samurai, Rashomon, and Run, few to name. So why Ikiru? Well, it's an unqualified masterpiece, about a man with stomach cancer consistent with the end of his life. It's hard to believe that Kurosawa did it when he was just over 40 years of age.
More Kurosawa on the Criteria Criteria: t Too much to list.
Sa Mood for Love (Wong Kar-wai)
More movies don't get hypnotic than this, the story of love and the harbor set out in Hong Kong in 1962.

Killing of Chinese Books (John Cassavetes)
Cassavetes, one of the pioneers in filmmaking s 70s, was filled in a magnificent Criteria box set which included five of its films, in particular Woman under Impact, with Gena Rowlands his search performance. This is not yet on the channel, and some similar Cassavetes essentials seem Faces and Love Streams, also missing. Luckily, its amazing The Chinese Killing Books There are two versions here.

La Promesse (Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne)
Although Criterion has produced great films at Dardennes, there is only one on the channel for this writing. To 1996 La promesse, a young man understands that his father is making money behind undocumented workers. This is a wonderful combination of realism and fancy Dardennes.
La Strada (Federico Fellini)
As with many other filmmakers on this list, Fellini is picking almost cruel, but it's a good place to start with the inadvertent sight of Giulietta Masina. She plays Gelsomina, a woman who was sold to a strong circus man, who played Anthony Quinn. La Strada Fellini's transfer marks from neorealism to a more lyrical style.
More Fellini on Channel Criteria: t 8½, Amarcord, Vitelloni, Il Bidone, Juliet of the Spirits, Cabiria Nights.
The Lady Vanishes (Alfred Hitchcock)
Hitch recognized the classics – Psycho, Vertigo, Rear Window, etc. – they are widely known and loved, but Criterion offers a nice choice of their earlier films. Why not start with 1938? Lady, containing province disappears in thin air? It is a great mix of genre, and incorporates elements of the comedy in the mystery. It is a great base.
More Hitchcock on Channel Criteria: t The 39 Steps, Downhill, Foreign Correspondent, The Depositor, The Exposing Man Too, The College, Young and Innocent.
Long Day (Terence Davies) closes
Terence Davies was often cited as Britain's greatest live film-maker, and this autobiographical work in 1992 is his best film. Instead of making a chronology of how life was in s 50s in Liverpool, Liverpool delivers a film that plays out as a dream memory. There are collisions from the surface of the youth to the surface and then they go back again, often with fine music chosen to accompany them. Beautiful piece of film, lyrical, poetry.
M (Fritz Lang)
A highly calibrated suspense film about a super killer, which Peter Lorre has inadvertently played. The style of Lang formed and shaped a cinema language revolution and influenced the value of a century film.
More on the Criteria Criteria: The Great Heat, Human Desire, Testament of Dr Mabuse.
Mishima: Life in Four Chapters (Paul Schrader)
Writer-director Paul Schrader is known for his films about men on the edge of society (see: Taxi driver and First Restoration), but it can be said that this is the most visually prominent work, about a man who put his life and art together. Ken Ogata plays Yukio Mishima, who made a public seppuku in 1970 to protest about his appearance of a former Japanese culture. Challenging traditional forms of storytelling, Mishima It is a modern classic.
Mulholland Drive (David Lynch)
It could be said that the best movie of the guests, David Lynch's masterpiece story of Hollywood's story and horror. Naomi Watts plays Betty Elms, a woman who arrives in the City of Angels and meets a grief (Laura Harring) who has lost her memory.

It is a piece of mood, which contains some of the most striking images of Lynch's career.

Night of the Living (George A. Romero)
There is not enough horror on the Channel Criterion, but there is a classic of the genre just sitting there, waiting for you to get it out. DIY film making changed forever when George A.

Pathways of Glory (Stanley Kubrick) t
The only movie Kubrick is on the search channel Paths of Glory, t and Kirk Douglas staring as a French First World War colonel whose men had to defend his men against courtesy after refusing to go through an order of their deaths. It remains a powerful deterrent to what governments and military ask young men to do in combat.
An Múinteoir Pianó (Michael Haneke)
Years before he won an Oscar Amour, Michael Haneke had a controversial voice on the international scene with some challenging things. The winner of this Grand Prix in Cannes in 2001 was one of the main turning points. Isabelle Huppert is playing as Erika, the titular piano teacher, who begins dealing with one of her students and then looks at her life turning upside down. It's not as abrasive as some of Haneke's other work – Funny Gamesfor example – but a convincing challenge to traditional expectations and demonstrating their skill with form.

More Haneke on Criteria Channel: t Benny's video, The Castle, Code Games unknown, funny, seventh continent.
The Player (Robert Altman)
Much of Altman's Criterion is not yet on the channel, but you will find a lot of people who call his reverse film, this comedy / thriller about the film industry. Tim Robbins acts as a studio executive who captures the paranoia and greed network in a way that can only happen in Hollywood. Often cited is his unbroken shot and abundant cameos, Player as an example of tonal balance: Look as Altman slides gently from dark humor to noir elements to industry commentary and return to satire. It's seamless.
More Altman on the Criteria Criteria: Secret Securities, Tanner ‘88.
The Red Shoes (Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger) t
These stars were film, 1948, and Moira Shearer as Bhallerina engaged between the love and the career, but it is more about visual vision.

Stalker (Andrei Tarkovsky)
Russian films, Andrei Tarkovsky, are often challenged by young cinemas, which could expect Russian sci-fi of 160 minutes. Trust us, it is well worth it. Solaris may be more common, but Stalker His masterpiece, a film that is almost impossible to describe it in one paragraph. It is sufficient to say that it is a visual and tonal experience that only inspires the audience. You don't feel the distance, and you don't feel the same after you see it.
