Yeah, its nice to have it finallly OFFICIALLY confirmed, as its been "confirmed" for some time now, closure via newsletter is nice. I imagine the cat is just a nod to the La Jetee/Sans Soleil release next month?

yeah, that one came out of left field to me, but still very welcomed and nice to see it get the treatment.

Not sure if theyll announce the #400 soon (as in this month) or if theyre reserving the spot for Berlin Alexanderplatz for a later month.

Nope as in no 'Berlin' as #400, or as in no, they're not reserving it for a later month?

But yeah, those are some nifty films.
I'll probably be buying House of Games (great cover, huh?) and I'll rent the other two (3?).

#400 remains a mystery for now...

For Samuel Fuller fans:

Eclipse Series 5: The First Films Of Samuel Fuller

3-Disc Set

Quote:
His films have been called raw, outrageous, sensational, and daring. In four decades of directing, Samuel Fuller created a legendarily idiosyncratic oeuvre, examining U.S. history and mythmaking in westerns, film noirs, and war epics. And characteristically, it all began with a bang: after printing the legend with the elegant B-pictures I Shot Jesse James and The Baron of Arizona, he got himself into hot water with the FBI on The Steel Helmet, the first American movie to portray the Korean War. These three independent films showed off Fullerís genre diversity, gutter wit, and subversive force, and pointed the way to a controversial career in studio moviemaking.

Is there any talk of Criterion getting Tarkovsky's Stalker? I've heard nothing but great things and am dying to see it, but I can't seem to find a region 1 release anywhere.

If you don't mind ordering online, Amazon has it.

It's well worth it. Fantastic film.

It's too much for me (I'd rather spend my money on something else I don't have), but damn if I don't want it.
I've rented two of the titles off of Netflix: FIRST MAN INTO SPACE and THE ATOMIC SUBMARINE. Dug the former, and the latter was okay, but as far as I've seen, I'd say rent the titles first before shelling out so much for the set.

Luckily, shortly after posting that, my desire to watch B-movies came to an abrupt end so I don't think I'll be renting unless the urge comes back, but thanks for the advice anyway.

And I haven't seen Stalker, I refuse to buy from the inferior Kino.
*waits for Criterion*

Guess the least I could do is netflix it, right?

Don't hold your breath. While Kino is inferior to Criterion, I don't think there are much, if any, overlapping Criterion and Kino titles. I own plenty of Kino as well as they carry lots of great titles from a lot of the greats that Criterion don't have. Plus, Michael Haneke is great stuff as well. So yeah, special features and quality are subpar to Criterion, but there's still some great stuff there.

Have you seen their dvds Tyler?

I mean, c'mon...I have a few of their titles and it's just bad.
The transfers (perhaps outside of the Keaton films) are awful, there are no good special features, the cases suck (sorry, had to put that down), and for most of their titles, they charge just as much as Criterion.

If that isn't a smack in the face, I don't know what is.

@ Sam: You're right, not many overlapping titles, which is unfortunate.
I would love to see Criterion take some of their films (like Scarlet Street or Metropolis...hell, maybe even Buster Keaton's better known films).

The one company that manages to even outshit Kino is Facets. That company is just like the worst dvd company in the history of dvds.
I have the Decalogue and Lemonade Joe from them and they are probably the worst quality dvds I have.

aside from the shit features on Kino, I really dont have much a problem with their transfers. Although, I hear Fritz Lang's Liliom's transfer is quite possibly the worst in DVD history. And as for price, I usually only buy Kino when DeepDiscount has a 60% off sale, so its not too bad.

In case anyone else noticed....Cria Cuervos and Milky Way were moved from #401 and #402 to #402 and #403, respectively, leaving now #400 blank as well as #401. So that leads to speculation that the two spots may either be a two film box set or at least connected in some way. Breathless and Pierrot le fou maybe? One could hope.

More news:

Apparently Pierrot le fou is a lot of further off than I thought, most likely not until late 08, at the EARLIEST.


On a more positive note....Last Year at Marienbad is opening in November by Rialto in theatres, so that means, most likely will see a release some time in 08 around fall.

That news is going to make me cry.

I don't want to wait till 08 (hey, that rhymes) for Pierret Le Fou and Marienbad.

Why?

Well this year is already packed with promised and confirmed releases:

Berlin Alexanderplatz (Rainier Werner Fassbinder)
Drunken Angel (Akria Kurosawa)
Breathless (Jean-Luc Godard)
Under the Volcano (John Huston)
Salo [RE-Release] (Pier Paolo Pasolini)
Robinsoe Crusoe On Mars (Byron Haskin)
Night on Earth (Jim Jarmusch)


The following are in the works, and could possibly be released this year, but were a little less precise as when they are coming, as opposed to the above releases where they were quoted as coming 2007:
My Dinner With Andre (Louis Malle)
Jour de Fete (Jacques Tati)
La Notte (Michelangelo Antonioni)
Last Emperor (Bernardo Bertolucci)
Le Jour Se Leve (Marcel Carne)
Permanent Vacation (Jim Jarmusch) <----Could possibly be released along with Night on Earth
Stranger Than Paradise (Jim Jarmusch) <---Same as above
Short Films of Martin Scorsese (Martin Scorsese)
Insignificance (Nicolas Roeg)
Miss Julie (Alf Sjoberg)
Mikio Naruse Box Set (Mikio Naruse)
Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (Nagisa Oshima)
Max Ophuls Box Set (Max Ophuls)
Human Condition Trilogy (Masaki Kobayashi)
The Hit (Stephen Frears)

Possible Re-Issues of:
Picnic at Hanging Rock
Andrei Rublev
High and Low
Lady Vanishes
Shock Corridor


And I've also omitted several titles that Rialto could release, but there hasn't been any formal announcement about or titles that are distinct possibilties but there haven't been any formal announcements about either. So let's just hope somewhere in there, Last Year at Marienbad could be squeezed in

A great post once again.

If those came out in 2007, I would be a very happy man and forget all the pain caused by the delay in Pierret Le Fou and Marienbad.

I'm also excited at the possibilty of it being released as a Jim Jarmusch Box Set . Night On Earth, Permanent Vacation, and Stranger Than Paradise....in one CRITERION set? I hope so. That's all speculation by me though, but I can hope.
