    Well Jeffrey D, it's quite possible that any of our hopeful choices could lead to the classic outcome of being something altogether different. And if that's the case, then I feel that the Adam_S prediction of "Roma" would also serve well in taking that coveted spot of Spine #1,000. After all, Criterion is not only about classic motion pictures but also about the importance of Art House Films. "Roma" is a foreign film that was a cross-over success to America; and also is unique in the world of Oscars as being the only film in which the same filmmaker won as Best Director and Best Cinematographer.

    Yes, "Roma", would fit quite nicely into the Criterion MO.:thumbs-up-smiley:

    Roma is owned by Netflix, which means there's a good chance they're not interested in releasing it on disc at all.

    Producers for Roma and The Other Side of the Wind have for all intents and purposes stated that Criterion will eventually be releasing these titles on home video. It's pretty strongly indicated that a limited deal has been reached between Netflix and Criterion to have Criterion release some of their more notable art house films on home video for the collector minded consumer. It's yet to be seen if any other films are part of this deal, though I'd wager The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a good candidate, as is The Meyerowitz Stories (and maybe even Scorsese's The Irishman in a couple years).

    How hard is this to announce Criterion? We've given you three days!

    Never in Criterion's history has there not been any announcements made for the month. If this is indeed a first, it may be Criterion was unable to come to an agreement with the studios on what they had intended to announce. This is sad indeed.

    From Criterion Twitter:

    We know you've been anxiously awaiting our October announce, but unfortunately we're still delayed. Stay tuned for updates tomorrow.

    Today, tomorrow, what's the difference?
    We still can't have and hold whatever it is that Criterion announces for another three months, thereafter.:mellow:

    There must be something needing last-minute clearance (special feature, art work) that has yet to happen yet, or something along those lines.

    Toho would be a likely candidate in this regard.

    The rumor is Toho demands to announce this at SDCC.

    That's stupid.

    Announce the other five and get it over with.

    If The Prince of Tides really was going to be announced this month, it could very well be Streisand causing the delay. She is notorious for being late on approvals and finalizations.

    Well, I've decided not to get frustrated.
    I've decided to log off and watch one of my 9 Criterion films that are still sealed.
    You know the ones.
    That sealed title that excited us when first announced;
    the one in which we anxiously awaited another 3 months for its release;
    the one that became a Day-One purchase;
    the one that we then kept a daily vigil by the mailbox for;
    and the one that then was added to our stack of unwatched films.
    Yup, that's the one; and after a year, I'm finally going to watch it, tonight.:popcorn:

    So, which one did you watch and what did you think of it? Worth the wait?

    "The Emigrants". Gorgeous, masterful and generously packaged with "The New Land".
    No turning back now, I'm going Swedish,
    as this double-bill is a great precursor to that mega-box marathon of Ingmar Berman's Cinema;
    which should keep anyone busy until Criterion's August announcements;
    or, perhaps, even September's...or maybe even October's, too.

    P.S. I can't imagine at this point any members not knowing, but the HTF/Criterion podcast interview is up and running.
    You know the one; as made possible by Mr. Epstein, Mr. Dobbs and - as host - Mr. Posten, too.
    A great listen with a highly generous trio from Criterion who openly shared, informed and enlightened.

    No doubts, it'll tide anyone over until those coveted release announcements do finally come in.:)*
