The Criterion Collection is THE premier home video company and has been since its creation in 1984. They've spotlighted numerous directors and hundreds of films and given them the best possible treatment for home viewing. Only one of those films has been animated. That film was Katsuhiro Otomo's 1988 landmark, Akira. This film was only released on Laserdisc, as the rights have passed on. I don't understand fully why Criterion hasn't released any animated films. Perhaps because there are so many live action films which have been neglected or never gotten a proper release in America. This is certainly true, yet there are plenty of animated films which I know need a proper release Stateside, especially since we don't know the condition of many of them if more attention is being paid to live action films. So here is a list of films which I think are more than adequate candidates for the Criterion Collection.

Speaking of Flash, here's a great scene from that film with Dalton and the lovely Ornella Muti.
