Instead of sifting through cinematic dogs like “Bright” and “Extinction” to get to the good stuff, you can simply head over to the new Criterion Channel of way more carefully curated gems that will entertain, teach, and generally expose you to some of the best films ever made. The distribution company that usually provides DVDs and Blu-Ray discs to the discerning cinephile has jumped on the streaming bandwagon with over 1,000 of its catalog of epic films, as well as carefully selected new arthouse, independent, and Hollywood movies. Park yourself on the couch to take in classics like Kurosawa’s “Rashomon” and Huston’s “The Maltese Falcon” or more contemporary film standouts such as Soderbergh’s “Traffic” and Baumbach’s “Frances Ha”. In addition to films, the Criterion Channel will also feature theme/genre based edited programming with famous guest curators, as well as fresh original programming.
