Somebody, please... me this for Christmas:

Actually, I already own a few of the titles in Janus Films/Criterion Collection's MASSIVE 50th anniversary boxed set - with 50 films on 50 discs, a 200 page hardcover booklet, and a $770 price tag - but I'd be willing to sell them off on eBay if someone handed this to me. No need to wrap it; it's simply beautiful as is.

Films in the collection I own: "The Rules of the Game," "Seven Samurai," "The 400 Blows," "M" -- wow, yeah, that's it.

Films in the collection I'm dying to see but haven't got around to yet: "Pandora's Box" (pictured above), "Beauty and the Beast," "Jules and Jim," "Ikiru," "La Strada" -- oh, who am I kidding? I want them all...and I've been really good this year.
