The "Criterion Connection" is my little corner of the world where I can obtusely and clumsily wax on about my commitment to Criterion's commitment to important classic and contemporary films.
UPDATE: This deal has expired. Hope you got some great stuff!
Today's "Connection" will be a short one and will really only have a small window of functionality. To celebrate crossing 50,000 Facebook fans, Criterion has setup the promo code "THANKS" that will take 50% off MSRP on all in-stock DVDs and Blu-rays at criterion.com. But don't miss out — the code will expire after 50,000 seconds (equivalent to 13 hours, 53 minutes and 20 seconds)! After Criterion's site buckled under all of the pressure we avant-garde fanboys placed on it, the sale eventually started around 5:15 PM Pacific time, meaning you have until about 7:08 AM Pacific to take advantage of this amazing offer (let me know if I messed up the math).
