Os lançamentos em Blu-ray da Criterion para setembro

Enquanto o mercado brasileiro de home video se apresenta cada vez mais complicado e atrasado, como reflexo de todos os problemas que o país enfrenta, nos Estados Unidos a Criterion mostra que vai tudo de vento em popa, sempre a oferecer filmes clássicos restaurados em alta definição, para contrariar aqueles de visão curta, que sempre afirmam que filmes “de nicho” não valem o investimento, pois não dão lucro. E, como sempre, acompanhados de diversos conteúdos extras e livretos exclusivos. Vejamos então o que a empresa que não brinca em serviço preparou para o mês de setembro.
