Criterion Collection Movie Exhibit

The Criterion Collection Movie Exhibit is on the 2nd or main floor of Alkek Library in the display cases near the elevators. The exhibit is a selection of international movies from the Criterion Collection arranged by country. The Criterion Collection is a series of almost 500 significant classic and contemporary films on DVD. For more information about what the Criterion Collection is and for a list of movie titles included in the exhibit please see the Criterion Collection Movie Exhibit page. The movie title list includes links to the library catalog record for each movie and links to the movie information on the Criterion site. Several of the movie pages on the Criterion site include clips of the movie.

Please see the circulation desk about access to the movies included in the exhibit. Movies from the Criterion Collection, not included in the exhibit, are located on the 3rd floor of Alkek Library in the DVD shelves. You can physically browse the collection or you can use the library catalog to search for movies by keyword or title. If you just aren’t sure what you want to see, search by keyword and use "Criterion and horror”, for example. You will get a list of horror movies within the Criterion Collection with information about each one.

The Criterion Collection Movie Exhibit will be on display now through January 2010. As the movies rotate in the exhibit, the list of titles on the Criterion Collection Movie Exhibit page will be updated as well.

I am the curator of the exhibit so let me know if you have any questions about the exhibit or the movies at

Happy movie watching!
