I have only seen a few of all of your recs like Royal Tbaums, Insomnia, Traffic, Chasing Amy, and Fear & L In LV. I just saw Brazil and Baron Von M.

I need to give F&L In LV another shot and my friend loves it.

I really want to see the Last Temptation Of Christ and will take all of your recs and see what pans out at the mainstream places.

The information for all the new releases are up. Richard III , which was scheduled for this fall but delayed, is now coming out in February. The major titles of the bunch are by far Diary of a Country Priest and Pickup on South Street. The most interesting title with prolly the best special features belongs to Salvatore Guilano. I'll prolly buy it on blind buy and the Bresson and Fuller one as well.

WOMAN IN THE DUNES COMING?

From a post at the CC forum (which they got from DVD Talk Forum):

I recieved this soon after registering for my long-overdue subscription to Milestone's mailing list. It was short, too the point, and apparently personal. I had listed Woman in the Dunes as a primary concern upon subscribing, as I felt the current DVD was lackluster.

"Dear (customer).

Criterion will be putting out a new edition of WOMAN IN THE DUNES in the next year or so.

Straight from the other horse's mouth.

This past fall, Akira Kurosawa's The Lower Depths was delayed in release by Criterion. It seems like the reason why has been discovered. To the hapiness of many, it seems it is to add Jean Renoir's own film,  The Lower Depths (1936) to the dvd package. This news comes from a member at the CC forum who writes this exactly:

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!! I spoke with Keiko McDonald (who had written the booklet essay) about the delay, and she confirmed that it was because of the addition of Renoir's Les Bas-fonds (1936).

This isn't hard to believe. Many assumed (and hoped) this would happen.

Criterion really needs to take a year off so I can catch up.

Those fuckers and their alluring covers...
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.
