As the last month or so here at TDYLF has illustrated, the Criterion Collection has an amazing variety of top-shelf cinema. It’s a gateway drug for becoming a film nerd, with films from multiple genres, eras, directors, actors and actresses, and countries. It’s that last portion that I’ve decided to focus on today. I’ve created an infograph that visualizes just how many countries are represented (and how well represented they are) in the Criterion Collection. If you’ve ever wanted to know just how many French, American, Swedish, British, Italian, Mexican, Polish, or Macedonian films Criterion has championed, particularly in relation to one another, this is your chance. Enjoy!
