    It's nice to see a recent film come to the Criterion Collection.

    I hope Criterion releases more films from the 90's and later.

    One of 2000's best films (according to Roger Ebert) - GEORGE WASHINGTON - will also be a CC DVD in 2002.

    Wow! First Lagaan was officially announced and now In the Mood for Love! Could this day get any better?

    This is a terrific film, and definately deserves to be part of the Criterion collection.

    This is terrific.

    I was thinking about getting the Region 2 disc for my DVD-rom as my player isn't multi-region but now I think I'll hold off.

    I wonder if they'll include the commentary from the Region 2 disc.

    I'm thrilled to see Criterion doing a Wong Kar-Wei film. Hopefully they might do more of his films in the future. I heard he was doing a new cut of Ashes of Time, I'd love to see Criterion put it out.

    This is the best news I've heard in a long time. I hope Criterion can release some more Wong Kar Wai films. The French DVD of this is incredible. If the Criterion is half as good, I will be extremely happy.

    If only they could get ASHES OF TIME, DAYS OF BEING WILD, AS TEARS GO BY, CHUNGKING EXPRESS, FALLEN ANGELS, and HAPPY TOGETHER. I would buy a box set of these.

    IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE is a drama set in 1960's Hong Kong. The movie centers on the relationship between Mr. Chow (Tony Leung) and Mrs. Chan (Maggie Chueng). Mr. Chow and his wife live in an apartment next door to Mrs. Chan and her husband. Mrs. Chan's husband is frequently away on business, and Mr. Chow's wife always works late. Through the course of the movie, Mrs. Chan and Mr. Chow develop a friendship. They suspect that their spouses are together and it gives them an awkward bond.

    Sebastian -

    I feel the same way! It will be my third DVD of this movie, also. At least I didn't get the version that just came out in England. It's supposed to be the same as the French release, anyway.

    I hope the Criterion is as good as the French DVD. I think that DVD is the best one I own. It amazing all the care that went into it. For a smaller movie, the DVD itself rivals the features of The Phantom Menace or the T2:UE. It even has an option to hear the music from the movie with a menu setup like and old radio.

    Not only do I get to avaoid paying for the R2 version, I get to once again delay my purchase of a region free player! [​IMG]
    This is the best news I've heard all week. Which, when you think of it, is really kind of sad.

    Yep,
    Criterion sure likes to stick it to us Canadians.
    With the exception of Chasing Amy and Gimme Shelter, Criterions usually range from $50 (barebone discs) to $80 CDN.

    I believe Criterion has a seperate distributor in Canada that hikes the price. By my estimate, Criterion discs SRP at around $60-65 Canadian anyway
