    A new commentary makes sense as it was the old "Laserdisc is great, DVD sucks" commentary.

    Got my copy of The Third Man last night. Hope to have a chance to revisit a classic later this week (wife is out of town for the week on business and my children are not quite ready for this movie).

    Looks like the next Brakhage set - which will include the four parts of Dog Star Man - will be on Blu as well as SD DVD.

    Since Dog Star Man is already on the first set, I think this means the first set will be released on Blu (and perhaps the second set too).
    Tentative line-up for the second set:
    The Wonder Ring
    The Dead
    Two: Creeley/McClure
    23rd Psalm Branch
    Scenes From Under Childhood (Part One)
    The Machine of Eden
    Star Garden
    Desert
    The Process
    Burial Path
    The Domain of the Moment
    Murder Psalm
    Duplicity III
    Arabic 12
    Visions in Meditatiion 1-4
    Unconscious London Strata
    Boulder Blues and Pearls And
    The Mammals of Victoria
    From: First Hymn to the NIght - Novalis
    I Take These Truths
    The Cat of the Worm's Green Realm
    Yggdrasill: Whose Roots Are Stars in the Human Mind
    Ellipsis #5
    Persians 1-3
    Chinese Series
    Most of these will be new to me (bolded the ones I've seen)

    On their facebook page, Criterion pretty much confirmed that the first Brakhage set will be getting a Blu-Ray release

    For those interested in the blu-ray replacement cases, this is Criterion's latest response to me...

    Can we pool together and buy cases in bulk? I could use cases for Chungking Express, Last Metro and (grudgingly) Last Emperor.

    The cost of shipping from one member to another would probably negate any savings from this idea.

    Too bad it's more expensive for international customers. You're charged with $15 for the first two cases. After that it's also $2.50 for the additional cases. But for nine cases, your total would be $47.50, which is quite steep, personally.

    Woo-HOO!!!!
    I've been bummed that Walkabout is still nowhere to be seen, but if there was one title that could make up for it- DOH would be it for me. I'm floored by this- never expected it.
    The only reason I'm not equally as blown away by Bigger Than Life, is that I haven't seen it yet. But based on everything I have heard/read about it over the years it WILL be an automatic blind buy.
    wow wow wow wowowow.

    can't wait!

    There were so many times I almost bought "Days of Heaven" . . . so glad I held out! More Malick on Blu-ray is always good news.
