[quote]Though he made only a handful of films, director, writer, and actor Jacques Tati ranks among the most beloved of all cinematic geniuses. With a background in music hall and mime performance, Tati steadily built an ever-more-ambitious movie career that ultimately raised sight-gag comedy to the level of high art. In the surrogate character of the sweet and bumbling, eternally umbrella-toting and pipe-smoking Monsieur Hulot, Tati invented a charming symbol of humanity lost in a relentlessly modernizing modern age. This set gathers his six hilarious features—Jour de fête, Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday, Mon oncle, PlayTime, Trafic, and Parade—along with seven delightful Tati-related short films.[/quote]

There are other Criterion sets i need too, like The Koker Trilogy, Wim Wenders' Road Trilogy, and a few others, they won't be around forever, could go out of print, oh and the Von Sternberg/Marlene Dietrich set looks FANTASTIC, .... will i have any money at the end of this year? 🤔
