Still too much. I really hate this film.
I wonder what the criteria is for sales? It always come off as incredibly random, and wish there was a way to predict them. I would have to see couple of other Criterion films on sale for this price. It's always at the wrong time for me.

As it turns out, there are quite a few other Criterion titles also on sale. It does appear to be random, but still worth picking up now if you don't have them. I'd like to see another big Criterion sale, hopefully this summer.
A Christmas Tale $17.99
El Norte $18.49
The Times of Harvey Milk $18.49
Summer Hours $18.99
3 Women $18.99
Wings of Desire $19.49
The Mikado $19.49
Yi Yi $19.49
Broadcast News $19.49
The Red Shoes $19.49
Sweet Smell of Success $19.49
The Double Life of Veronique $19.49
Au revoir les enfants $19.49
Smiles of a Summer Night $19.49
Still Walking $19.49
The 400 Blows $19.99
Summer Interlude $19.99
Belle de Jour $19.99
Edit: Appears that this sale is more comprehensive than was initially let on. It's odd that with such a lengthy list, there was no big promo or fanfare from Amazon to Criterion fans. Nor any indication of how long these prices will hold. In any case, still a good list of titles from which to choose!

I love the movie but I just dont want to spend $20 on itI hate every ape I see, from chimpan-A to chimpanzee. No, you'll never make a monkey out of me!

$19.99 has always been the price for Summer Interlude, probably because it's going to be one with fewer special features, like The Organizer.

But the suggested retail price for Summer Interlude is only $29.95, even on the Criterion site, so if I were to follow the same formula I'd have to wait until it was less than $15.
But having said that, I didn't follow my 50% off rule for that one, and I pre-ordered it months ago, even at the $19.99 price.

Really took advantage of this sale.
My general rule with Criterion is, if you want it, and it has more than a commentary, then buy it if it drops to $20 or below. While it's possible it can go lower at some point, that's too rare to count on. Even the movies with just a commentary hardly go below $17. Otherwise you start building a long wish list, and end up killing your bank account during the annual B&N and Criterion sale events.
Also, while it didn't go as low as the others, La Jatee/Sans Soleil dropped to $22, which is a new low.
