Criterion has always been hit and miss with covers. I think we're getting used to the pedigree of talent of their best work and we are no longer accepting the usual muff. The Paths of Glory cover is horrendous and I really wish Criterion would edit it, but other than that, no cover moves me one way or another. People have been criticizing their use of stills in various forms for covers lately, but I think it makes sense because if you start putting avant garde design work for older movies of a different generation and time period, the new cover becomes out of date very quickly. You have to find interesting covers that honor what is in the film. Finding new ways to abstract stills from a movie is better than using original poster art (for the most part).
