It also lacks some of the Shout Factory titles, but it's the one I'll buy as it's about a third of the price.

Delbert Mann's Separate Tables (1958) on blu-ray from Kino



Travel to the Beauregard Hotel where the eccentric guests all share one common trait - loneliness. There's Major Pollack (David Niven), who hides a dark secret behind a polished military veneer; Sibyl Railton-Bell (Deborah Kerr), a shy, neurotic old maid who lacks the courage to break away from her domineering mother; John Malcolm (Burt Lancaster), a disenchanted writer who drowns his bitterness in a pool of alcohol; and Ann Shankland (Rita Hayworth), whose narcissism masks a deep fear of growing old alone and unloved. In one emotional evening, these four unhappy misfits will bare their innermost secrets... and change each other's lives forever.   

Separate Tables (1958) - Amazon

-Curtis Harrington's Night Tide (1961) starring Dennis Hopper, which sort of has the feel of a Val Lewton movie

-Frank Perry's The Swimmer (1968), a dark, devastating dream set against the sun-soaked valley

watched them in this order, night tide to the swimmer, for a snazzy double. i'm feeling mood oriented, atmospheric. i'm a haunted human house. thanks. good call

Upvote for A Face in the Crowd. That UK Tati set is a conundrum. I haven't seen the two you mentioned. Criterion will be releasing their own Tati blu-ray titles down the line, but they lost the rights to Trafic, and given that the other Studiocanal titles Criterion has lost the rights to haven't been re-licensed (La Grand Illusion, The Third Man) and Playtime is already a standalone...blah. Do I trust Studiocanal to issue Trafic as its own disc release in the US? I don't know. Don't know which way is up.
