    There's five films by Spike Lee, plus films by Joseph Losey, Henri-Georges Clouzot, Claude Chabrol, Mike Nichols, Rene Clement, and Serge Gainsbourg. While they're not all on my immediate watchlist, I'm definitely getting Mo' Better Blues and Quai des orfevres (Clouzot). Hardly a swing and miss.

    Oh, I’m certainly in for Murder, He Said and others. I was only expressing my hope that we see more older titles in 2020.

    They put out so many films I do want, that I'm almost glad to see that there will be a dry spell for me while films that probably are favorites of a fair number of people around here appear instead.

    It will help me catch up a bit since they put them out quicker than I can buy them. Despite a big sale purchase back in August, I have 19 released Kino Blu-Rays still on my want list. And then there are at least four announced films off the top of my head that I'm looking forward to in the months ahead, with 'Murder, He Says' at the top of that list.

    As long as it's not a trend for 2020, that is. Almost everything I buy is from the same period as Gary and while there have been numerous newer films from Kino that I've bought or intend to buy (Like the upcoming release of 'Ladybug, Ladybug' and Charley Varrick in a week or two), they've been outnumbered by a wide margin by 1935-1955 films.

    With recent announcements like The Great McGinty, I suspect we don't have much to worry about.:)

    I don't really care about announcements that just say early 2020. My view is maybe they will be released and maybe they wont. The 3 gary cooper films were talked about for a year but until they actually have a release date i will take the view as if i never heard about them. This is in view that all the titles for jan and feb came out of no where with actual release dates and were never talked about before the announcements. I think some titles are just announced without dates just to see what interest they draw.

    No, what actually happens is they make new deals with studios, and do a few switches on their schedule for key titles to get released sooner and push their lesser titles back. Some film released are pushed back for better film elements, new scans, subtitles, waiting for directors of films to do commentaries or interviews.

    Of the recent announced titles, I'm in for PERFECT FRIDAY, a great heist movie with Ursula Andress & Stanley Baker and LIGHT AT THE END OF THE WORLD with Kirk Douglas & Yul Brynner. LIGHT is one of those movies that was a total flop at the box office but I loved it. Some brutal action with Brynner especialy chilling as a violent pirate attempting to take over Kirk's lighthouse.
    Films like these saw a lot of use as second features in area drive-ins in the early '70s. I recall PERFECT FRIDAY was paired up with Clint Eastwood's TWO MULES FOR SISTER SARA here.

    I was hoping KINO would release SKIPPY. It’s never been released at all... but KINO sad they never inquired about it. Too bad, it’s a best pic nom and a best Director winner. Hopefully there are no rights issue and someone will release it. :/

    I seem to recall that Kino did ask for this one, but didn't get it.

    You kinda read my mind. I've been championing Blu releases for MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS and CAPTAIN NEWMAN M.D. for years, and wouldn't at all mind picking up the rest you list.

    I didn’t realise that ACCIDENT was in Kino’s line-up. One of my all-time favorites. It’s a brilliant film with a great script by Harold Pinter and with Dirk Bogarde at his best (he once said it was his most difficult part because he was essentially playing himself). In my opinion it’s Joseph Losey’s best film.

    The ability to rent Kino titles that I want to see but may not necessarily need to own forever is a wonderful option - thanks guys!

    But no one should watch APE in 2D, under any circumstances. :)
