Criterion Haiku

Filed under: Looked Into

Criterion sponsored a May Haiku Contest with, naturally, a movie theme. One of my favorites, by Dana Gustafson:

Need more DVDs
My wife does not agree so
I hide them from her

And this one by Milo George:

Rainy Saturday;
Watch the Cassavetes box.
Oh, now it's Monday.

It brings to mind Tom Bartlett's very funny recent series on Minor Tweaks, "A brief dialogue between THE ME WHO SELECTS NETFLIX MOVIES and THE REAL ME," which begins here ("Oh crap. What is this?" "It's called 'The Story of the Weeping Camel...' ").
