    Any idea what Criterion is working on for the rest of 2002 (they haven't announced anything beyond their June releases) ?
    Jon Mulvaney has indicated that we won't see any more Bergman, Fellini or Bunuel titles this year [​IMG] Also, the Truffaut (400 Blows, Jules and Jim) and Bresson (Diary of a Country Priest) titles won't be out until 2003. Finally, many of the titles that have been "coming soon" forever (such as Polanski's Knife in the Water and Fellini's La Strada) also won't come out this year.
    Any clues about what titles they may be working on for the remaining half of 2002 ? The only one I can think of is Hitchcock's Spellbound.

    I think Akira Kurosawa's great film Red Beard (1965) will be out before the end of 2002.

    The recent chat with CC gives some indications what they are working on:

    I believe they do not announce dates too far in advancce because they are a smaller company that would rather take extra time to get any particular title done right before they release them, rather than setting a date according to the market and releasing whether the disc is done right at that point or not.

    Solaris may get a 2002 release from Criterion.

    I have heard a Bottle Rocket and Royal Tennenbaums criterion dvds both are coming out,great for Wes Fans,and a Criterion version of 1 or more Merchant Ivory films. And I heard Possibly another Scorsese Film going Criterion,but I dont belive the last part just yet.

    I am SO looking forward to Howard's End, even though the current disc is pretty good.I hope they get Room With a View, as that looks like crap on DVD.

    I'd like to see Barbet Shroeder's 2 Pink Floyd films, More and La Vallee, but they may be on the HVE roster.

    I don't think Solaris is on track for this year. When all the fuss about the Ruscico disc was floating around, this seemed like a mid 2003 release at best. Maybe they have stepped up production on it. I know Image had been doing a lot of work on this title before their license expired.

    Last I heard the elements for Hoffmann were undergoing serious restoration before the DVD.

    God bless Criterion - they're STILL the best DVD company out there, by far.

    I'm hoping Criterion releases Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors to DVD. It's a Janus Films title, so it ought to be a very likely release.
