I like the Criterion cover for Crash best.

I actually like the cover for Amores perros. It reminds me of a dragon's mouth, not a dog's.

I like the Amores Perros cover but is this first cover where the director's name is larger than the film itself. I also like the Gary Tooze approved cover of Crash

Interesting that the Pierrot le fou inner cover has a picture of the Fuller scene with the green tint despite it not being present in this version.

All quite lovely. I love, love, love the Buñuels, even if they're not very different than expected.

The Buñuel set is not a knockout, yet I love it. I can’t wait to have it on my shelf. But the Rolling Thunder Revue art is just...dreadful.

Minding the Gap looks great, but it reminds me of the poster for Super Dark Times.

Aside from the facial expression in The Ascent that looks a bit like The Passion of Joan of Arc in a dissociative state, the rest are fine. I'm glad they kept the Phantom of Liberty DVD art, which is one of my favorites.

The individual Buñuel covers are fantastic, but the wacky font nonsense on the set cover looks terrible to my eyes.

Wow, looking again I absolutely hate That Obscure Object of Desire's design due to a very personal nails-on-chalkboard physiological reaction to certain sensory stuff related to lips. Just looking at it is making me feel like crawling out of my skin.

The Rolling Thunder cover is Criterion's version of the Sgt Pepper art work

I was rather surprised to discover it's not designed by the same person who did W.R..
