    Why didn't I download this app long ago? I read the reviews, that's why. I'm happy to report that the bugs are for the most part gone. So now I'm just going to love on this app for a minute here so bear with me. FilmStruck has become one of my regular go-to's for streaming, and I've been getting an education in cinema as well as great entertainment -- Rossellini, Godard, Renoir, Welles (even the obscure ones!), etc. Last night I watched Renoir's "The French Cancan" (1955, in brilliant color) which left me floating -- the whole thing is a brilliant confection, with a final 15 minutes of pure euphoria; we forget sometimes how high the masters tower over most of today's auteurs. Here is where they reside. FilmStruck includes the great Criterion Collection. So glad I finally gave it a try!

    For everyone with an interest in great films this app is your greatest dream. If you get the combined digital library of both FilmStruck and Criterion Collection films for something like $90 a year of great films from since the existence of the medium and from all over the world, and for the number of films and the top-shelf quality of these films, $90 a year is a steal. Especially considering how most films released in the esteemed Criterion Collection are like $30! Although it's worth it for the quality of the film, its presentation, the amount of special features, quality and complexity of the packaging, and the little goodie that you find in the case which might be a book, collection of essays about the film, little things designed to look like they came from inside the film, or something else delightful. So an app with all of that (besides the goodie that can only exist in physical form) is something that has finally come to give meaning to the lives of film buffs, movie enthusiasts, film connoisseurs, film scholars, film reviewers, filmmakers, and everyone else with a passion for for film, or just a love of great art. Another huge upside to the app is the way you can easily watch the type-of special features that you can only get in a blu-ray of the film from the amazing and gut-wrenchingly expensive Criterion Collection for a minimum of $20, but probably more like $25-$35! But a huge chunk of the Criterion Collection is on this app as well as the film collection that FilmStruck offers. There are a few possible 'best-film-ever' contenders Criterion has released that can't be found here, which is a shame; but there's still a solid 60%-80% of essential films in Criterion Collection, which is still literally tens of thousands of hours of film on this app that, despite the missing masterpieces that you have to buy, are so good that you'd rather keep exploring the library of essential viewing rather than go to the wedding, funeral, birthday or some other important occasion of a friend or loved one (yes, I am being hyperbolic but I really can't stress how many fantastic films there on this app). Needless to say, that's the biggest reason people should use this app. But unfortunately I can't give this app a 9/10 (and not the 10/10 that I'd give this app for having everything released by the Criterion Collection) because in terms of film selection and presentation this app leaves very little to be desired. The app itself is another story. While it's pretty streamlined and well-designed, it's also got a couple of problems that aren't always easy to ignore when you are trying to easily scroll through way too many titles at a time to even see the covers of any of them (yes, that's also a joke, when you scroll at a reasonable speed it's barely noticeable). It's clunky-feeling, boring to look-at, and feels a tiny bit sticky when scrolling. None of these are deal-breakers however, in fact none of them are really that bad at all. It's just that an almost perfect digital library of great film only has a couple of problems, but they're certainly hard to ignore. But, of course, attempting to focus on the overwhelming amount of good aspects to this app makes the small flaws feel far more pronounced. It's like the closer something gets to perfection, the more pronounced its imperfections are. But I will say that it's really not at all functionally different from Netflix or Amazon Instant Video, and it's a heck of a lot better than how it feels to use Hulu or HBO NOW. In conclusion this app is essential for everyone who loves or even likes film and/or great art despite the very few films that can only be bought from the Criterion Collection but not streamed, and the few minor issues with how the app looks and feels in your hand. 8.2/10. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go watch every Jacque Tati film instead of attending to my crying infant son in the other room. I should probably check in on him in a few days once I need to go but more diapers for when I sit down and refuse to get up so that I can watch more movies on FilmStruck.

    As a filmmaker I am very grateful to have such a valuable and affordable resource to educate myself with. There are films on here that are nearly impossible to find anywhere else, and they are all so rich in quality. Can't wait to see what new titles come out. Right now I'm going to return to crash-coursing in both Kurosawa and Bresson!!!
  • I'm download and I have tried countless of sites and none of them didn't work so I'm gonna try this

    So very exciting to exit the Netflix and Hulu platforms, even the Indie streaming services are so very dim compared to you! Thank you for a great app and access to art that had been hidden for too long. Keep up the good work!
