    The Mosquito Coast for sure.

    Anyone know who owns the rights to Klaus Kinski's "Jesus Christus Erloser"? That's an incredibly interesting showcase of just how insane Kinski could be.

    One more to add to my wish list:

    The three-film Show Boat set (1929, 1936, and 1951) long rumored to be released by Warner Brothers

    I want a George Pal sci-fi set that includes Destination Moon, When Worlds Collide, War of the Worlds and The Time Machine. The first 2 films especially need quality releases.

    David Lean set of Great Expectations and Oliver Twist, or just the Lean films that are not out, like Breaking The Sound Barrier.

    Raging Bull (4k upgrade from MGM/UA)
    West Side Story (rumored a few years ago)
    As someone already posted Bertolucci and a new Last Emperor (2.35????)

    Lot of stuff there. With Help! I am wanting the long unseen LET IT BE which I have not seen since it was on first release in the movie houses in Australia. I believe there was a DVD once but I never saw it and could not get it. O Lucky man is another missing out there. The Russian War & Peace comes with lots of stories of it being restored, damaged, 70mm original negatives lost and on and on. There is also the matter of the opening. There is the war explosive footage and the replaced, later, soft footage panning thru a field. A friend went to the marathon session with a food break at a classic theatre(still there) with his then wife(don't do that to me again she said later after about 8 hours in the theatre). My friend told me that when it started a guy yelled out something like: Oh, No! They have used the soft opening and not the explosive one. I would have thought the Blu Ray of The Greatest Show would have been ideal with the release of the recent Barnum flick. Missed opportunity. With the Peter Jackson war epic they should trot out The Journey's End(Tiffany release, 1930). The MGM special silents are certainly overdue if the Carl Davis scores can be used. Brothers Grimm and other sad story but I am waiting. The MGM 1958 tom thumb is another.

    I'd like to see Devil and Daniel Webster, and anything from W.C. Fields (he deserves a box).

    Did see Devil & Daniel Webster a few weeks ago and what a great film and a great Bernard Herrmann score. Needs to be upgraded to Blu-ray. It was funny seeing John Landis introduce Field's Its A Gift on TCM recently and one of the best comedies ever made!

    Indeed! It's always strange to me when someone's Criterion wishlist is entirely English titles.

    The Unbearable Lightness of Being (upgrade)
    Eric Rohmer's Six Moral Tales (upgrade)
    Ralph Bakshi's Wizards
    Sirens (Hugh Grant, Tara Fitzgerald, Elle Macpherson)--that ancient DVD has got to go!
    Henry and June--same reason!
    Blake Edwards' 10--that mediocre WB bluray has also got to go!

    And the EYES WIDE SHUT "Show West" teaser trailer that consisted of a much, MUCH longer version of the "mirror scene" than what ended up in the actual film.

    How about some John Sayles? MATEWAN and LONE STAR in particular would be great.

    And how about Lynch's THE STRAIGHT STORY along with the others that have been mentioned?

    I'd also like to add that Bergman-styled comprehensive sets for Ozu and Kurosawa would be welcomed. While Kino seemed to get several Melvilles and Godards, perhaps Kino can get some Bunuel.

    Also, I'm surprised there's not one Blu-ray of Cantinflas' films. Sony released a ton of nice quality DVDs years ago. El padrecito is an underrated comedy that isn't well known outside Mexico.

    As far as Help! that is out on blu ray. The Beatles company, Apple, now owns the rights to that, Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine, and Let It Be. Don't see them doing that with Criterion. Would be nice if they did.
