I get a real kick out of these small distributors always crying about people not buying their stuff, lamenting the economy and so on...give it a rest already! How come you never hear Criterion whining about poor sales and threatening to close down? They've been around a long time and they'll still be around for years to come, you know why? Its not because they sell a million copies of Wages of Fear or some other obscure foreign film. Its because they actually care about movies and don't put out a compromised product for the sake of cutting costs and then hope that someone will buy it. People are actually willing to pay a premium price for a quality product. Criterion's DVDs are absolutely worth every penny. I also get the sense that they don't do it for the money. Making money is good and this is a business after all, but the main thing should be to make these films available for us film lovers to enjoy the way the director meant us to enjoy them. I'm tired of all these small labels repeatedly delaying stuff, not including subtitles, passing 8-minute fluff pieces off as "documentaries" and giving us generally mediocre product and expecting us to pay $20 for it. Most of this garbage isn't worth even $10.
