Criterion Just Planned Your Weekend For You

By  · Published on February 15th, 2013

If you thought you were going to go on a camping trip to your local National Park, to get some solid work done on that tree fort you’re building or to edit all the Russian meteor footage into a totally sweet dubstep mash-up this weekend, you are sadly mistaken, friend. The Criterion Collection has made your plans for you, and they include all of their movies playing for free on Hulu from February 14th-18th.

And, no, I’m not at all sure why the Most Popular movies (as seen above) prominently feature female breasts on their DVD covers.

By my math, you could watch anywhere from 30–38 movies depending on their individual runtimes and your willingness to pee into a case of plastic bottles you keep by the couch. My suggestion would be to start with Modern Times, swing over to Diabolique, follow it up with Tokyo Story and then just free-style it for the next 44 hours. After you’re done, join Landon for way-too-in-depth conversations about what you just watched. Happy lost weekend, everyone.
