Dubious Criteria

Criterion's Little F**k-Ups. Vice Magazine's list of dubious inclusions to the Collection.

Since Criterion's basis is "important classic and contemporary films", quality really doesn't have to enter into the mix. Armageddon could be deemed "important" as a prime example of a blockbuster.

And while I see where the writer's coming from in his comments about Man Bites Dog, I do believe it's of higher quality despite the subject matter.

I knew Chasing Amy would be on here, and I also knew I would greatly disagree with its placement. I love that movie. I also love The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, but I know I'm in the minority there.

I enjoyed Zissou and Rushmore much more than The Royal Tenenbaums.
