Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia
City of Women
Valerie and her week of wonders
Faster Pussycat Kill Kill
Kill Bill 1&2
the Girlfriend Experience upon its release.
Most of these have probably already been mentioned, but these are the ones I like and think would make for good Criterion (though there are a couple of these I know would never be adopted to the collection but had to indulge, for the most part the list excludes things I like but don’t see getting a release.)
2001: A Space Odyssey
City of God
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Full Metal Jacket
Last Picture Show
Lost in Translation
No Country for Old Men
O, Brother Where Art Thou?
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
Requiem for a Dream
Squid and the Whale
There Will Be Blood
Trouble Every Day
L’Âge d’or/Un Chien Andalou
More Hitchcock and Kubrick
CHIMES OF MIDNIGHT!!!!!!!!
Also, a Criterion edition of Jacques Rivette’s “Out 1” would be most impressive.
Chimes At Midnight*
Damn it all.
all the stanley kubrick, all the paul thomas anderson, all the max opuls, all the andrei tarkovsky….
Day of the Locust
Rivette’s work. Probably Out 1, Celine and Julie, and La Bella Noiseuse, none of which you can really get in America. Dang those distributors!
Also, more Rohmer would be cool, but there are some great Rohmer DVD’s out there, so it’s not too big of a deal.
Pasolini’s Trilogy of Life needs a collective and readily available release
Michael (Carl Theodor Dreyer) really needs a criterion release.
Killer of Sheep – Burnett Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead – StoppardRussian Ark – SokurovTeorema – PasoliniFace (Kao) – SakamotoFaust – Svankmajer
Victor Erice’s The South,
Orson Welles’ The Magnificent Ambersons,
Kurosawa’s Dersu Urzala,
Goddard’s Week End,
John Huston’s Prizzi’s Honor or The Dead,
Antonioni’s Red Desert, Blow Up
Otto Preminger’s Anatomy of a Murder
Woody Allen’s Aniie Hall & Purple Rose of Cairo
Coppola’s The Conversation
Jean-Pierre Melville’s UnFlic
Coen Bros. Blood Simple & Raising Arizona
Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle
Clarence Brown’s Intruder in the Dust (1949 MGM), from the William Faulkner novel.
I really don´t remember if already post my thoughts here … but anyway …
There are many many films … but it would be wonderful if Criterion released THE WIND, with Lillian Gish by Victor Sjöstrom.
I love this films and is really very very hard to find (An a very good edition with a nice soundtrack and, if it would be possible, as a feature the reconstruction or something of the myth of the “real Sjöstrom ending”). It would be a reaaly good effort from Criterion.
Bigger Than Life, Johnny Guitar, The African Queen, Apu Trilogy,
and agreed with comment above Fellini’s Casanova
“sumjukla de train tracks”
my top 10 at the moment…
Pixote (before city of god, there was THIS)
Husbands (or maybe a 2nd cassavetes boxset made up of; husbands, love streams and minnie & moskowitz)
What Happened Was
The Education of Sonny Carson
Humanite (although it looks like it IS coming out on criterion eventually)
Jean-Luc Godard’s Week End, now that the gorgeous UK edition is OOP. Ingmar Bergman’s Persona is also howling for a release. A boxed-set of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Trilogy of Life would be superb; those UK editions are decent releases, but oh-so pricy (30$ for each title; collectively 90$ for good transfers but slim extras.)
People really need to stop listing such films as 2001, Magnolia, Memento or Taxi Driver. Those releases have more then efficient releases; all 2-discs with Criterion-level extras and packaging.
Also, Woody Allen & Todd Solondz wishes can be stopped, as well. What would the point be? Both directors disapprove of special features.
cop rock (entire series)
The all are out of print and demand high prices.
5 Centimeters Per Second
I wouldn’t mind seeing a Martin Arnold collection either
Odd Man Out – saw a beautiful print of it at the Film Forum.
The Wicker Man by Robin Hardy, 1973.
theres like 3 different versions of wicker man. the most recent one is a pimped-out special edition. what would be the point of a fourth special edition dvd. GREAT movies without ANY US dvd release should get first dibbs.
The rest of the Terrence Malick oeuvre.
