    Haven't seen these talked about on this forum yet, thought I'd point them out.

    These 3 Criterion titles for july are not officially announced, but they are up on DVD planet:


    Umberto D.

    The Honeymoon Killers

    The Pornographers

    Really looking forward to Umberto D., I'm not really familiar with the other 2 but they seem interesting enough.

    Very cool news about Umberto D. [​IMG]

    I've heard The Honeymoon Killers is pretty good - Martin Scorsese was the original director - so I'll pick that one up.

    Not familiar with The Pornographers but it's a film by Shohei Imamura so it's probably worth a look.

    Lots of interesting movies from Criterion lately...

    Criterion used to have the lamest jackets on their Laser Discs years ago and their initial DVD artwork followed suit. But lately, some of their artwork has been truly inspired. The Fear and Loathing slipcase and jacket design, as well as, as the Antoine Doinel box set are among my favorites.

    I think the Honeymoon Killers artwork captures the "mood" of the film perfectly. [​IMG]
