DVDFile takes a look at some of the legendary company's most iconic releases... The Criterion Collection: 10 Unforgettable Titles

The Criterion Collection is without reservation the best boutique label in the Blu-ray/DVD business. Its roster of titles may not have the jump-out-at-you recognizability to America at large that other studios offer, but their motto ("dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in editions of the highest technical quality, with supplemental features that enhance the appreciation of the art of film") continues to dictate a level of quality control - both aesthetic and technical - that no other house, large or small, even gets close to achieving.

While awaiting the company's predictably impressive fall/winter 2009 season, two DVDFilers have culled their ten favorite releases from the company, a collection of titles that indeed reflect Criterion's self-proclaimed status as a definitive "continuing series of important classic and contemporary films".

First up: Documentaries about crazy French chicks with creepy masks...
