I want to point out that I was the first one to guess "Mad World" on that clue.

 

This one I was leaning towards "Adaptation", so I'm not a TOTAL know it all! :P

Is it just me or are they getting stupid easy?

I think some visual puns are too rich to pass up.

According to MMM Criterion has discontinued their BREATHLESS Blu-ray and DVD. It is still available from Criterion's website/Hulu Plus channel/iTunes channel, so I don't know if they've lost the rights or if these have been discontinued to make way for a dual-format release. If you are interested in the film/Blu-ray and want to be on the safe side it is pretty cheap at amazon.

The Blu-ray was licensed from Pretty Pictures, but there is no mention of it on their website. 

 

I've  emailed Criterion, and I'm sure many other people have as well, to ask them what is up with BREATHLESS and people are asking them on facebook, so I hope that we'll have confirmation on what exactly is happening tomorrow.

Masters Of Cinema series has Red River coming out on the 28th October, one of my favourite westerns, i am wondering if Criterion has it on their schedule, i don't like buying titles multiple times and Criterion tends to have better extra content, so maybe i should wait, it's hard to resist this film though, does anyone have inside info on whether this one will be on the Criterion label soon, if not i'll just buy the UK edition next month.

Reports are that Criterion has licensed it, it's just not been announced yet. Depends how bad you want it I guess, if you can last until it's announced then you'll at least have the knowledge of which version you prefer and then can go ahead and get the MoC or wait 3 months for the CC to be actually released.

I think i'll wait until at least Xmas then and see what announcements surface.

 

I thought the MOC version of M was a little too brightened up compared to the Criterion too although the German Universum one got everything right compared to both the Criterion and Eureka ( MOC ) releases, i guess it will be worth waiting and comparing the different editions of Red River.

Hawk-King

 

Stephen the Hawk-King, in fact; a really cosmic guy who hangs around with Errol Morris.

(Along with the rest of Errol's boxset.)

 

So, the guesses are about 50-50.

But I'm guessing it's the nagging fanboy Terry-zombies that think a Hawk is a Fisher.  :rolleyes:

If not THE FISHER KING or A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME, then, clearly, BIRDEMIC.

I really hope it's THE FISHER KING.  The Criterion LaserDisc of that was superb back in the day!

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Have you seen if it's region locked?

Plus I'm not interested in westerns generally.

Hows that for reasons to wait?

I'll probably pick it up if Criterion takes too long to release it.

 

What I'm not going to be waiting for anymore is Dr Mabuse, both 1922 and 1933 features.  I figured Criterion might be working on a definitive set of all features, but now that MoC has a blu-ray coming of the 1922 feature, I'll be picking up that and the Criterion DVD of the 1933 feature in November.

Criterion President Peter Becker & Producer Kim Hendrickson are doing a Q&A at the Wexner Center on November 19th and the listing for the event breaks the news that  Criterion is releasing THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX.
