trust me, the Teshigahara box set is a MUST buy. Face of Another is great....similar to Eyes Without a Face (which is one of my favorites). Also, Pitfall is damn good, both HIGHLY recommended. I haven't seen Woman in the Dunes, but that is actually his most highly regarded of his films if I'm not mistaken, so I'm pretty psyched about that. This month and May are quite possibly the two I've amped for the most. Yeah, I say this every month, but this year has been amazing. The only "weak" month was probably January, but that still gave us Mouchette and the Yojimbo and Sanjuro re-releases, so that says a lot.
This year has been pretty good, but the only two new Criterions I've bought where La Haine and Bicycle Thieves (though I've got around 5 preorders).
And I'll take your word for it, thanks Sam.
I'm not really that into Asian cinema, so maybe I'll start with Teshigahara.
