My Favorite Website Discovery of the Summer: The Auteurs

They stream complete and comparatively beautiful versions of classic films. Mostly they’re in the business of pay per view at $2-$5 per viewing bu they do offer ten films at no charge. The free fare includes L’Avventura, Harakiri, Cleo from 5 to 7, and The Cranes are Flying. These films though are readily available on DVD. Even cooler is that there are videos you can’t find on DVD but can be seen here for a minimal investment. Examples include Laurent Cantet’s Human Resources, Marcel Carne’s The Adultress, Takeshi Kitano’s Kids Return, Guy Maddin’s My Dad is 100 Years Old, and Jan Svankmajer’s The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia, among others.
