Criterion Box Art

"For film nerds like myself, the Criterion Collection is the crème de la crème.  Every title in their incredible catalog is restored to pristine picture and sound quality and usually boasts some of the best bonus features out there.

But what is really seals the deal is Criterion’s gorgeous box art.  Every DVD in the Criterion Collection sports a completely original box art design.  They must have some of the best in-house designers working today as their DVD packaging just can’t be beat.  Needless to say, this makes it especially hard for the DVD collector to resist."

Oh wow, this is a really nice design (the bottom one) I LIKE THE COLOR, black on black, and the typeface of "if".

The box art for Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai is my favorite. It's tough to get an idea what it looks like on teh interwebs, but the hand written titles are enough to distract from the movie.
