From its Manhattan offices, the Criterion Collection now fashions special-edition DVDs that set the standard for the industry while rescuing from the vaults classic films such as Jean Renoir's The Rules of the Game (1939) and creating filmmaker-approved versions of modern movies, including Steven Soderbergh's Traffic.
"In terms of extras and commentaries, many of those were their innovations," says filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, who started his American Zoetrope DVD lab that produced The Godfather and One from The Heart DVDs. "We admire them and try to live up to the standard they are known for."
