A Kurosawa I know nothing about. Another Rossellini (which I think brings him from 1 to 6ish, counting eclipse). The 'box art coming' is labeled "Danton" on the forum, and IMDb points to I guess this. And more Truffaut is always welcomed. :wub: I'll probably be down for that.

Sweet! The Last Metro! I've wanted to see that one for years. Like the art, too. Definite buy.

The Criterionforum snobs (now those are some snobs) can suck a dick, because Fanfan la Tulipe is great fun (although a stronger narrative would have been nice).

I'll probably go with Ace...it'll match my Breathless I'm about to buy nicely.

Ummm....what are our thoughts on the infamous Salo or 120 Days of Sodom...I really like the packaging...but have heard a potpourri of reactions to the film.

I passed on Picknick at Hanging Rock because the British DVD is actually better as far as I know.


My Criterion collection starts filling up, though (which is hard/expensive living in Germany):

Rebecca
The Lady Vanishes
Chasing Amy
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Spartacus


And bidding for Brazil right now.

Ladies and gentlemen, there's good movies, there's great movies, there's fucking masterpieces, and then there's things like Max Ophuls' Earrings of Madame de...

You aren't allowed to talk about cinematography until you've seen this.

I've never seen an Ophuls before! I must get La Ronde and Le Plaisir immediately!

Quote:
Criterion Goes to the Oscars

Last fall the Criterion Collection and Janus Films joined forces to acquire a first-run film for theatrical distribution—a rare move for two companies best known for handling the classics of cinema history. Revanche, both an existential thriller and a quiet, character-driven rumination on fate and grief, is the ninth feature from Austrian director Götz Spielmann and the first theatrical release of a new film from Janus in decades. With its Academy Award nomination yesterday for Best Foreign Language Film, Revanche joins a long lineage of Janus first-run releases that have received attention from the Academy (from nominees Dodes’ka-den and The Horse’s Mouth to winners Through a Glass Darkly and The Virgin Spring).

“This all came together very organically,” Peter Becker, Criterion’s president, says. “Key members of the Criterion staff saw the film at Telluride, and they were really bowled over. Götz Spielmann is the real deal. He’s a completely commanding filmmaker with a powerful visual sense and an impeccable sense of timing. He is meticulous, patient, and deeply humane, but he is also full of surprises. He can wring suspense out of the simplest gestures, and the film takes some remarkable turns along the way.”

My first thought was Wings of Desire, since we've known for a while it was in the works.

And....it looks like the criterionforum snobs agree.

Well, yeah, angels. Is that the German film City of Angels was based on or am I totally making that up?

I bought Le Plaisir.

Seriously, just get any of the Ophuls. These are "shit I'd better change my all time favorites list" good.

It will change your life. I have never been less concerned about setting unrealistic expectations.

Why, yes, yes it is. Not that I suspect you'll be seeing either one anytime soon.
