Criterion Collection 50% off at Barnes & Noble

Last night I picked up Eyes Without a Face for only $15. Looks like the sale is good online too, where the selection is even wider than at your local store (and there's free shipping if you spend $25). Normally I think these versions are overpriced, mostly for snob value, although if they have unique director or actor commentaries, that could make it worth it (not if the commentary is just some film dork regurgitating the bits of psychoanalysis that he was spoon-fed in grad school 30 years ago). But $15 to $20 is just right for good movies that are hard or impossible to get in any other version.
