Janus Films.

This seems like a nice practical gift:

Although the fact that their online store sells logoed tee-shirts makes me wonder about their intentions--and coffee mugs and a baseball hat? Really.

on second thought, i have quite a few of the titles listed. and i really should stop spending on a whim...

$650 is quite a reasonable price for these films. Granted the packaging of the discs is subpar.
post #4 of 13
yes, and considering that they left out all the extra materials... including some of those nice janus documentaries. still, as you said, it should make a nice gift.

that's another one to add to the 'great logo design' thread.

Saw this at Scarecrow Video the other night. I noted that I have seen one, possibly two of the films. I'm so cultured.

I don't even know what Janus is ;p

I'm guessing these films don't have $100 million dollar budgets, big explosions, and lots of skin?

These films define the way I look at life and art.
I hadn't realized the impact until seeing the list.

I agree it's quite an impressive list to say the least. Their stylistic range is quite good though, from Pepe Le Moko to L'avventura.

janus films was merely the u.s. distributor for these films and had nothing to do with their production.
