For those interested, iTunes has select Criterion digital HD films on sale for $4.99 each. These titles are not MA (Movies Anywhere) compatible. Lowest prices posted for a lot of them. This deal also beats the previous frontpage deal from some titles.

I imagine if you buy it on iTunes, if/when it ever comes out as 4K, you will get it for "free".

It depends on The Criterion Collection...

Grabbed all Kurosawas, even though they are on HBOMax right now, been wanting to own these digitally for years.

If the studio doesn't say The Criterion Collection then it's not their version of the film. No extras on Criterion releases either, a shame.

Is the Brazil on iTunes actually the Criterion version? There is no mention of Criterion on the iTunes page. There's also no commentary or other extras so what does it mean to be a Criterion version? It is the longer cut of the film at least

Any chance the Kurosawa movies are ever upgraded to 4K?

The current iTunes version of 'Brazil' is the Universal 132 minute release (the compromise between the studio and Terry Gilliam). It is not the Criterion release of the 142 minute director's cut. It's still a great film and it looks good in HD.

Man, I'm tempted to grab all the Chaplin just on the odd chance I'd need to watch them on the go. Great, great deals!

Hurry up, I think they are changing prices. The Gold Rush is back to 14.99 now.
