    Received this last week. Amazing film. Great transfer. Thanks for the review.

    Interesting to see the dramatic depths that Andy could achieve. First rate performance.

    You think the change in ownership at B&N might impact those sales?

    Great review Matt...I love this film...between A Face in the Crowd and Sweet Smell of Success, I can't decide which of them I love more...and thus, for me at least, which one is the best American film of 1957...a very strong year overall. Thanks to Criterion, I now have both on beautiful Blu-rays!

    You said it! They make a great looking pair of Criterion black and white Blu-rays!

    Barnes and Noble 50% off Criterion sale starts June 28 per posts on many boards who claim to have seen store signs. Runs through August 4 they say.
