Mr. Arkadin is a must buy for me, but no Malle for me.
I've seen one of his films, namely Lacombe Lucien, at a retrospective show on him at one of the museums next to me. After that, I've vowed to not see any more of his films for at least ten years. I don't reccomend you see them yet because no matter how good the films are, they are brutal and just, uh, I couldn't watch them.
Have you seen "Kind Hearts and Coronets" or "Viridiana?"
It looks pretty good and Bunuel is always a good bet. While I have also not heard anything about Metropolitan, but Criterion's releasing it so it can't be all bad.
While a Sanjuro, Yojimbo, and Seven Samurai double dip seems lovely. Can't wait for those, thanks for the update Tayzlor.
Oh crap, I just saw that Mr. Arkadin is 50 bucks.
