Yeah that’s what I’ve always thought

Theorbo Goes Wild (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 27 March 2019 00:33 (five months ago) link

curious about the next Eclipse set

flappy bird, Wednesday, 27 March 2019 00:41 (five months ago) link

So does this stuff all go straight to streaming or...?

i believe that (s)he is sincere (forksclovetofu), Monday, 15 April 2019 22:08 (five months ago) link

Not automatically. Some will, some won't. For some they'll get a short-term streaming deal but not a permanent addition to the streaming collection (cf In a Lonely Place, The In-Laws, and numerous others).

Also: The Ozu features a bonus film, What Did The Lady Forget?, that he made in the 30s.

The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice is playing here in a couple weeks, I thought this part of the description was hilarious: "This is considered one of Ozu's more active films - for example, there are car rides."

flappy bird, Wednesday, 15 May 2019 23:31 (four months ago) link

not mad at a Magnificent Obsession upgrade, but I'm really loosing my patience waiting on a Written on the Wind blu ray.

methanietanner, Thursday, 16 May 2019 00:06 (four months ago) link

Same. But glad to know that eventually all three of them will be getting an upgrade now.

has anyone seen The Inland Sea?

Maybe it's [Prince] Sign of the Tides?

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Thursday, 30 May 2019 19:48 (three months ago) link

god I hope so

flappy bird, Thursday, 30 May 2019 19:55 (three months ago) link

Signs are pointing to Babs, sadly.

SEPTEMBER: Local Hero; Circus; Polyester; Cluny Brown; The Cloud-Capped Star; and a Blu upgrade of Fists In The Pocket.

Polyester comes w/a Odorama© card, BTW.

This Criterion cover for POLYESTER is just awesome pic.twitter.com/V0d0AFeVmh

Wow

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 17 June 2019 21:15 (three months ago) link

Looks like i'm getting a new copy of Polyester then

Oy McVey (Noodle Vague), Monday, 17 June 2019 21:29 (three months ago) link

that's the best

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 17 June 2019 21:40 (three months ago) link

I have a Polyester/Desperate Living set that's gone missing. If I can't find it soon, I may have to get this too.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 17 June 2019 22:56 (three months ago) link

Killer cover

flappy bird, Tuesday, 18 June 2019 00:57 (three months ago) link

I hear Local Hero comes with oil stock

Polyester is in the running for my favorite CC cover of all time.

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 02:09 (three months ago) link

it's great

other faves: house, repulsion, complete tati. worst: badlands, naked.

B&N sale reportedly starts tomorrow.

no delivery to Canada this time :( :(

Simon H., Friday, 28 June 2019 18:02 (two months ago) link

Everyone going nuts for the Criterion sale at B+N should know they’re also doing Arrow Films half off as well, your chance to get KHRUSTALYOV MY CAR, DISTANT VOICES / STILL LIVES, PULSE, and the Rivette Box Set.

Rumor has it that a Godzilla announcement will be dropping next week, presumably in re: a massive set of the Toho material that's been on Filmstruck/Criterion Channel for some time.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Sunday, 14 July 2019 15:32 (two months ago) link

Also lots of speculation that they'll announce, tomorrow, the 1,000th spine number which people seem convinced will be Citizen Kane.

Pauline Male (Eric H.), Sunday, 14 July 2019 15:40 (two months ago) link

To all of you patiently waiting for our October announcement, we're sorry for the delay. We will be announcing tomorrow—stay tuned!

Wong Kar-wai's birthday today - boxset?

flappy bird, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 17:16 (two months ago) link

OCTOBER: Matewan; When We Where Kings; and Blu upgrades of Haxan and the Von Sternberg Silents box.

NO SPINE #1000 (YET)

frustration and wonky passion (C. Grisso/McCain), Thursday, 18 July 2019 16:19 (two months ago) link

haha wtf

flappy bird, Thursday, 18 July 2019 16:19 (two months ago) link

When We Where Kings has Soul Power as a bonus film.

frustration and wonky passion (C. Grisso/McCain), Thursday, 18 July 2019 16:21 (two months ago) link

Whew, I'd been right on the verge of picking up Haxan on the assumption that no upgrade was on the horizon. The rare occasion when I've avoided getting punked by Criterion announcing a release that I've literally just bought.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Thursday, 18 July 2019 16:25 (two months ago) link

According to a poster on the Criterion Forum, #1000 should be announced next week (probably the Godzilla box).

frustration and wonky passion (C. Grisso/McCain), Thursday, 18 July 2019 16:27 (two months ago) link

Announcing our October lineup, featuring a wrenching drama about a pivotal struggle in the American labor movement & an Oscar-winning chronicle of one of Muhammad Ali’s greatest fights. Plus, 2 Blu-ray upgrades! Stay tuned for something big: next week we'll announce spine #1000! pic.twitter.com/MiejT2hjF7

Oh no, there goes Tokyo...

Curious about the silent films of von Sternberg set... I love the Sternberg/Dietrich box set. Probably going to go get Don't Look Now and My Brilliant Career at B&N after work today.

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Friday, 19 July 2019 16:41 (two months ago) link

They're gorgeous. Be sure to give the Alloy Orchestra score for The Last Command a good listen.

Anne Hedonia (j.lu), Friday, 19 July 2019 16:56 (two months ago) link

I love the gangster in Underworld that laughs at the lead guy, "Look! He actually likes to read!"

flappy bird, Friday, 19 July 2019 16:57 (two months ago) link

Even more extraordinary: a Larry Semon performance that *doesn't* make me want to kick him in the crotch.

Anne Hedonia (j.lu), Friday, 19 July 2019 16:59 (two months ago) link

Old Joy confirmed in latest newsletter.

frustration and wonky passion (C. Grisso/McCain), Wednesday, 24 July 2019 18:27 (one month ago) link

any Reichardt is good but that is by far my least favorite... so dated, such a product of the Bush 43 era, both characters are so pathetic...

Godzilla boxset all but confirmed as spine #1000, listing has showed up on blu ray/dvd sites

flappy bird, Wednesday, 24 July 2019 18:32 (one month ago) link

All hail the King! Announcing #1000: a monster edition! This October, we’re bringing you a collector’s set fit for the granddaddy of all movie monsters. Our landmark edition gathers for the first time all the Godzilla films from Japan’s Showa era! https://t.co/jwYyr01mPZ 🔥 pic.twitter.com/yZjyxCfJSq
