Criterion Design Process: The Man Who Knew Too Much

Maybe it’s just a bad excuse to own hundreds of movies that I will only watch once, but I’ve always felt purchasing Criterion Collection releases was like investing in a piece of art. Truly, the cover designs are works of original creativity, sometimes (if not often) even surpassing the quality of the films that they support.

Check out this in-depth article by the American Institute of Graphic Arts about the design process for Criterion’s upcoming release of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I love stuff like this.

  2. Reblogged this on victorsmoviereviews and commented:
    Small sample of the creative process.

    I feel exactly the same about buying Criterions, it is like buying a work of art. Here in Australia they are super expensive, probably even moreso than in America and other places. But despite that, I feel like I get the most value out of those purchases compared to standard DVD/Blu-rays. Mainly cause I watch and re-watch, and trawl through the extras which I rarely do for standard purchases.

    Great article by the way.

  4. I feel the same way about buying Criterions…but I usually watch all the special features too, so I can justify them that way too. Or something.
