But, oh well, i’m sorry for bringing this discussion to this topic, i just thought completely wrong to dismiss Criterion’s work because of someone like Glauber Rocha.
Bring Mojica to Criterion treatment then!
^ Thanks for the link. That guy started that blog topic bashing him. Compares to someone pissed at Godard or something.
Pretty good info though knowing he wanted Jack Nicholson in the cast for A Idade da Terra.
Matheus’ profile picture makes him look more white than native American or Hispanic, so i wouldn’t be surprised if his ancestors came over with the Nazis in 1945.
As much as I hate Fidel, it was the most appropriate meme. trollface
I have to agree with you, as our dumb and analphabet former president said; “it’s blue-eyed white man fault”.
And it is the north-american necessity of feeling guilty about the poor and opressed latino-americans, as if all their hate against “the man” wasn’t only jealousy.
I’m actually of full Hispanic descent. We can trace ourselves back to Cartagena, where we were Spanish Jews forcibly converted under the Inquisition. As a Texan with Hispanic-Jewish heritage, I lay claim to Terrence Malick, Miguel Cervantes, and Maimonides as part of my cultural heritage, along with Mr. Rocha.
Matheus, do you like any of Rocha’s films at all? If not, which Brazilian filmmakers do you like? Obviously with the left-wing politics you might not care for much of the Cinema Novo period and Cinema Marginal (though I see you do like alot of leftist filmmakers so the Rocha dislike is either for personal reasons due to South America or I really don’t know).
Politics aside, Scorsese loves Rocha, and who doesn’t love Scorsese?
^ When I get old, if my hair turns white but my eyebrows don’t, I’m definitely dying one or the other.
Cool news. The “wacky_rosemary” drawing in this month’s newsletter makes Rosemary’s Baby semi-official as an upcoming Criterion release.
Rosemary’s Baby seems too obvious… especially since the picture doesn’t really have anything to do with the actual movie… except, well, the fact that it’s Rosemary…
It’s not “too” obvious, it’s just clear that the cartoon is hinting at an upcoming (and long-rumored) release of Rosemary’s Baby.
Are we sure it isn’t a pair of shrubberies, one beside the other, one placed slightly higher so you get a two level effect with a little path running down the middle?
hey man, my information is sound – it’s the “when” that I’m fuzzy on! lol
As the title of the cartoon specifies that the image is rosemary, I suppose ROSEMARY’S BABY is the logical conclusion. I want to decipher it further, but now that I have that thought in my head, I can’t see it as anything else.
I don’t know… I feel like if it was Rosemary’s Baby then there would be another connection to the film, instead of just the fact that there’s rosemary in the picture. What is the heart?
Then again, I hadn’t heard any rumors about Rosemary’s Baby, so, I don’t know….
Yeah, that picture hint could be Badlands. Why not?
If it’s Rosemary’s Baby, Spence is gonna be pissed.
“That movie is already available on DVD!” hahaha
The cartoon is a “mother” rosemary admiring her little “baby” rosemary…
They should add Fearless Vampire Killers and MacBeth for a set.
Sweet! The previously released DVD of Rosemary’s Baby is shit and more than a decade old. I hope they do release it, it needs an upgrade for sure. And yeah, a full set with some of his other films would be great.
The heart is the necklace Ruth Gordon wears in the film.
And although I agree with Mike that they need to focus on unreleased films (although I don’t mind releases of things only available in other regions), this is for spine number 666, and I can’t think of any film more deserving of that number than Rosemary.
edit: It’s the exception that proves the rule.
Although The Omen would make more sense.
But aren’t they basically the same premise, Santino? Just that Damien is a little older than Rosemary’s baby.
I don’t know. Is Rosemary’s baby supposed to be the antichrist? Has that been confirmed?
I mean Rosemary’s Baby is the better film, for sure. But they don’t reference the three six’s in that film, do they? Of course in The Omen, it’s front and center.
Criterion should really do a box set of all the Omen films, including Omen 4: The Awakening with the devil’s granddaughter, Delia.
The big one is “Bad” and the smaller one is “Lands”, it’s so obvious
