If you're a foreign film fan or DVD fiend, if you've ever had a heated discussion about auteur theory, or insisted that seeing all of Fanny and Alexander was the right way to spend an evening, this might be the most perfect t-shirt for you: The Criterion Collection, which puts out stunning and comprehensive DVDs of films from around the world and from the past and present (two recent favorites of Gothamist: Their editions of The 400 Blows and Metropolitan), now has an online store where you can buy not just Criterion but also Janus Films gear. There are baseball caps and t-shirts, perfect for letting your film snob freak flag fly!

For the record, we're getting the Janus Films t-shirt - we have fond memories of when we tried to watch all the "world classics" the summer before college (hello, Ingmar and Francois)!
