Extreme Makeover: Criterion Edition
I'm not sure what happened, but I just checked the Criterion website to find that the cover-art for Arnaud Desplechin's A Christmas Tale has been changed. The old cover was middling, uncolorful and dispiriting, but I totally dig this new re-design for the Blu-ray/DVD release due out on 12/1.
The only eye-sore on here is that the title covers up the Criterion "C" logo in the top left, why not move it down to 3/4 up the tree? Oh well, the point is that Criterion, after several very mediocre cover designs, have restored my faith a little bit - my life is practically riding on what they come up with for Steven Soderbergh's Che ('08), due out in January of next year.
