"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."
-- Federico Fellini

Guillermo del Toro is at the center of the Criterion Collection October slate, which features a new stand-alone edition of the haunting, Oscar-winning fantasy epic Pan’s Labyrinth as well as a set-available in both a DVD edition and a sumptuously designed Blu-ray box that includes a deluxe hardcover book-collecting the writer-director’s trilogy of fabulist Spanish-language films: Cronos, The Devil’s Backbone, and Pan’s Labyrinth. We’re also thrilled about two European masterpieces making long-awaited entries into the collection: Ermanno Olmi’s Palme d’Or-winning The Tree of Wooden Clogs, an absorbing and sensual elegy that faithfully captures the rhythms of a now-lost way of life in rural Italy at the turn of the twentieth century; and The Executioner, a darkly comedic and fiercely subversive political satire by Luis García Berlanga, regarded by filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar as “the true father of Spanish cinema.” All this plus Richard Linklater’s one-of-a-kind chronicle of childhood and adolescence, Boyhood, in a special edition featuring exclusive new material; and a new Blu-ray of Robert Altman’s star-studded adaptation of Raymond Carver stories, Short Cuts.
