It's only on the plastic wrap but I laughed at how prominent it was.

The color scheme for The Awful Truth is good on the front, back, and spine at first, but becomes kind of grating and ugly after looking at it for awhile...

Love how they utilized that scene with the church silhouette on the foldout for The Color of Pomegranates!

I like The Awful Truth cover, but the style makes them look like characters from Archer.

Both of those look very good. Not sure what the point of having those different fonts for "The Virgin Suicides" is, but I like it.

The picture of the different fonts is the title card of the film.

I think I prefer the design with the fawn as the cover for Dead Man. It is more intriguing and poetic.

I'm absolutely shocked that the Sternbergs are actually across six discs.

Totally stunning covers for the von Sternberg/Dietrich set. Wow.

EDIT: Great month for covers all around!

Love the Dietrich box covers but the A Matter of Life and Death and Bull Durham covers are underwhelming.

Dietrich/Sternberg may be the release of the year. Awesome!

A Matter of Life and Death is one of my favorite films ever...as far as animated covers go, I like it?

All covers are great except AMOLAD, which makes it look like a cheap 50’s Sci Fi

A little surprised that weird Sony licensing doesn't force them to also put "AKA Stairway to Heaven" or something like that, even in the blurb.

I really like the Matter of Life and Death cover. Don't know if it's based on poster art but looks like something that maybe could have been ... both appropriate to the film and very attractive on its own terms.

Bull Durham doesn't quite work for me. It's awfully busy and I don't think the art style is a good match for the tone of the film. Maybe it'll look nicer in person, though, since the Blu sticker is sort of covering up a key detail.

I get what the Bull Durham cover is referencing, but I can't help thinking of Stephen King's Gerald's Game as I look at it. I also love the AMOLAD cover and am so relieved they didn't follow the screenshot precedent set by the previous P&P covers.

Marlene Dietrich's face should be on every Criterion cover.

I haven't seen AMOLAD but I adore that cover, and it doesn't seem at all inappropriate to the vibe I get from other P&P films.

Kinda feels like A Matter of Life and Death should have made heaven a monochromatic grey. After all, one is starved for technicolor up there... I dig the stairway.

Also, the Dietrich set is gorgeous. Homerun.

Speaking of which, Bull Durham is awful.
