Criterion Closet Picks

A comprehensive list compiled from all the Criterion DVD Picks and Criterion Closet Picks videos held at the Criterion offices since 2010. I've gone through all the videos and tried my best to be as accurate as possible but I'm sure there are some mistakes. Corrections are welcome in the comments.
Here are some stats.
In 76 videos over 10 years, 503 unique titles have been selected from 235 different directors.
*Stats below are locked at video number 75 and will be updated only once every 5 videos*
