    I am hoping for the original 2-hour Mandarin mono version of Bruce Lee's first major motion picture, The Big Boss (1971). Rumor has it that a few complete copies of the premiere print are in private collections.

    My choice would be Touchez Pas au Grisbi, the finest French crime film.

    LA STRADA ; PONETTE; BALLAD OF A SOLDIER ; THE 45th ; QUIET FLOWS THE DON (all 3 parts) COME AND SEE ; NEVER ON SUNDAY ; BURMESE HARP (aka HARP OF BURMA) - not the recent bluray release but the original uncut 2 part version of the same film never seen in cinemas..It is perhaps the greatest film of ALL time. And to a lesser extent,the recently restored FLYING CLIPPER.

    Hardly worthy of a Criterion release .Its just a forgettable 'B' grade action film.

    I'd like to see the all-but-announced Eraserhead and Scanners. Also, wasn't Mulholland Drive heavily rumored to be coming from Criterion?

    Unfortunately, the original 2 part cut of The Burmese Harp no longer exists.

    A Blu-ray of Melville's " Le Samourai " would be most welcome.

    We certainly wont get James Whale's Show Boat given that it's just become in Warner's Archival DVD program. It defnitely should be on Blu ray though!
    I would like to see a couple of rarities ... Agnes Varda's witty 'Lion's Love' and Burning Life (Peter Welz take on Thelma and Louise).

    I second that emotion regarding "The Alamo" -- considering the great job RAH did on the IAMMMMW set, they certainly owe him and I think Criterion are the only people to give this movie and restoration the proper presentation.

    Personally, a little 69 minute 1937 comedy called "Way Out West" would be my 'I have a dream' request from Criterion -- if not, the tv and theatrical versions of "Marty" in the one set -- and a documentary on Paddy Chayefsky as a special feature.

    OMG I totally forgot Tales of Hoffmann.
    That's such a natural choice given the fine Criterion DVD .. and such a wonderful movie all-round including the glimpse at the end of the great Thomas Beecham. An outstanding release (nice double-meaning).

    I'd buy it. In fact, a complete Bruce Lee collection done to Criterion's standards would be great. It's my understanding that the Shout Factory set is a bit lacking in the quality department due to the elements they received.

    I'd love a Godzilla box as well, to sit beside the gorgeous Zatoichi set.

    I'll buy every single Cronenberg film they can get their hands on. The pre "The Fly" part of his catalogue seems to be lacking in quality mostly, it would be great to have a complete collection of his work before he hit the big time with the studios.

    I'd be shocked if we didn't get Eraserhead sooner than later, the trailer has been online for a while now..
