Really fantastic to see Criterion getting in the 3D habit. Notice that already they are ahead of the pack by including extras in 3D as well, not just the main feature.

Almost worth going out and buying a 3D TV and 3D player for this release alone !

Key word being "almost" (yeesh! :td: ) But Wim Wnders completism aside, looks like Criterion is deliberately experimenting with whether they CAN release a Blu 3D title, and what saturation of their Criterion cult actually have the new sets. I've got one, but I'd seen the preview on a Best Buy demonstration set, and it looked like German water torture. I may not necessarily agree with THIS Blu 3D title, but I'll defend to the death Criterion's right to release one. Now, if they could find some other "art" 3D titles to dig up for the sake of film history--Don't think I'm ready for Andy Warhol yet, but maybe if they could dig up some rare 50's-noir on 3D?

Seems Bob Furmanek has already approached them about his 3D titles with no interest. Maybe if Pina does well they will reconsider - and at the least they should go back and put Flesh for Frankenstein out in 3D I'm kind of surprised that they didn't lead off with Herzog and Cave of Forgotten Dreams, both are from Sundance Selects, so presumably rights weren't an issue.

That's too bad, I can see Criterion doing one or two cherrypicked golden-age 50's 3D as "serious" film history, just for film-history's sake: Even if Warner already has Kiss Me Kate tied up, I could see Criterion doing a representative cross sample of 50's noir and western 3D, eg. Inferno or Charge at Feather River. (Bwana Devil, of course would be "history", but...c'mon.) As for turning him down, let's be honest: Criterion's largely inflated reputation for getting "any title they want" attracts wishful fanboys like fleas to a hound dog--like the Grandma that little kids ask when mommy says no--and they're well aware of that. I sympathize with Bob's motives, and hope for his further success, but he should just be glad he wasn't an anime fan pestering them for "Grave of the Fireflies". :rolleyes:

I think a classic era 3D title would actually be a good fit for CC. They like to have representative films of all genres.
