It seems everyone is getting into streaming films these days. First Netflix now The Criterion Collection with the debut of their new website, Online Cinematheque. What sets The Criterion Collection’s Online Cinematheque apart is that they take such care with their prints and the fact that The Criterion Collection’s cuts for certain films are unavailable anywhere else (e.g. Sid and Nancy). Some current films they have available for $5 rental that I would personally recommend are Fat Girl, Lord of the Flies and Solaris.
