1. The Criterion Collection and Hulu have extended their deal to keep the video platform as the exclusive streaming home of Criterion’s vast library of art house films.  Hulu Plus houses more than 800 movies in Criterion’s singular collection.  Criterion is known for its lavish DVD and Blu-ray packages, many of which feature restorations of older films.

    The most recent streaming addition is the Italian film by Paolo Sorrentino ‘The Great Beauty' (La Grande Bellezza 2013), synonymous to the works of Federico Fellini, Roberto Rossellini and other Italian classics.  The film won Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards, the Golden Globes and the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts).

    "For real cinephiles who want to dig in and see lots of different kinds of films, I don’t think there’s ever been a better time." said Peter Becker, president of the Criterion Collection.  - AP (New York)
