Night Train

image via The Criterion Collection

I saw this cover on the shelf at the video store and I thought, "Night Train to Munich" - it just sounds like a classic movie and the box art is so striking, that I was drawn to it. My question is; does that happen on Netflix or iTunes? Do you choose an album or a movie in the digital realm? Does that happen anymore? Regardless, bless the good kids at Criterion for continually raising the bar on the dying art of the DVD cover. I hope when they finally go entirely digital we don't lose these artifacts and somehow find a way to create such fine ephemera.
