This is one of my favorite films. Bluray release would be most welcome.

And Housekeeping.

Pretty much that director's (Bill Forsyth) entire body of work is missing.

I'd love to see this. My favourite movie ever :) and while they're at it they can drag Gregory's Girl out as well!

Put me down for Local Hero as well. Haven't seen the others mentioned here.

Bill Forsyth makes quiet, astonishing films.  Housekeeping is my favorite film of all time(as my avatar indicates).  I have Breaking in on dvd, but that's about it.  I'm a little stunned that Criterion hasn't handled some of his films thus far.  They certainly would make a good fit in their line.
