In My Fantasy Life…

I’ve joked with friends before that I have a very well-realized fantasy life, one involving having somehow hit the lottery for so much money that I will never have to work again. (This is impressive, as I almost never actually play the lottery.)

But after browsing through the Criterion DVD section of Barnes & Noble yesterday (while contemplating taking advantage of their buy-2-get-1-free sale on all DVDs in the store), I decided that if somehow this fantasy life ever does happen, one of the things I will do is buy every single Criterion DVD I can get my hands on, then start working my way through the entire collection.

Sure, eventually it might get boring, but I’m willing to take that chance.

  1. Not sure if you saw my review this morning, but the new Postwar Kurosawa box is worth getting. I know you keep your eye on his stuff.

    When I was down 9-8 in the third set yesterday, my love of the Greg and his awesomeness got me through. We Serbs know awesomeness and Greg is where it is at. And then I won – 12-10 in the third set. Thanks Greg, you hotness monster!

  3. Jamie — I did indeed! I’d known nothing about the films that are in the boxed set, so now I am even more excited about it.

    As it is, I just picked up Drunken Angel at the sale (along with Late Spring and Early Summer), so between those and all the other backlogged DVDs, I think I shall be good for a while.

    Just to be safe, though, I put the boxed set on my Wishlist. Birthday coming up, after all…

  4. Drunken Angel is the one I don’t have yet. It came out after the last online sale and someone else got it to review, alas. I have a few coupons/rebates coming, so maybe will pick it up with one of those.
