I figured it was worth a thread for this. In the Criterion chat from last night, technical director Lee Kline made an announcement at the end: I am stoked about Stray Dog. I've heard for a while that Criterion was working on it, so it's great to hear that it'll be out this summer. Barrie Maxwell of Digital Bits said that Stephen Prince would be doing a commentary for it, which is excellent news, as Prince reliably delivers high-quality work on those tracks. I saw Stray Dog a few years ago as part of an on-campus Japanese film series. One technical detail that I hope has been resolved is the subtitles for part of the scene at the baseball stadium. When Shimura and Mifune are talking in one or two of those shots, the background is just the blazing summer sky, and the white subtitles were totally transparent against the background, so I had no idea what they were saying! I've also never seen The Leopard or Tin Drum, so I look forward to checking those out.
