gummo and any svankmajer film as well…
ideally alice or faust
I second “Bad Day At Black Rock” what about “The Secret Adventures Of Tom Thumb”?
Definitely Breaking the Waves.
@Z.Bart and Maurice
For the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World some awesome supplements would be some audio commentaries with actors, the writer and artists of the graphic novels, edgar wright and some of the crew. There is a special edition version of this film on DVD already that have all of these commentaries. However i think a CC release could also include some footage on adapting the film from the comic. I know that footage was shot behind the scenes for this but i’m not sure if it was released. That would be a great addition. Also some essays on the art of adapting a film from a comic series/graphic novel series; i think SPvtW did this better than any film out currently, and it would be a very relevant and timely release given all of the comic book franchise films being released currently. Scott Pilgrim was on a significantly lesser budget than any of this films released thusfar. I also think that some special features involving the editing and special effects process would be absolutely fascinating. I think Scott Pilgrim would have a great potential in getting inducted into the Criterion Collection, as it opens up film connoisseurs to a type of movie they may be hesitant to watch, as well as a newer american film, which is something Criterion has been shying away from (however the recent announcement of Tiny Furniture is exciting!)
C’mon Maurice, all Z.Bart was asking for was what the special features could be. And i agree 100% with him, there is no point in buying a Criterion for the box and essay, it’s the complete package that makes it worth its money.
also, this was in the Fake Criterion thread and is literally a perfect box for the film, if Criterion ever picks it up I hope they just commission this:
i would love to see Breaking the Waves in the collection
I think that Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy would be a fun and awesome addition (assuming the final film actually comes out!) and some of the special features could be comparing its references, homages and inspiration to Kieslowski’s Three Colors which is already in the collection!

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World DVD is quite excellent with its commentaries that range from insightful to outright hilarious (there were two groups of the cast who did the commentaries and both seemed inebriated during their sessions).
I think they need something (anything) directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet.
La Belle Captive perhaps.
Complete the Bay Trilogy.
@ Takashi Miike McCabe
I agree with you on both BREAKING THE WAVES and THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE, & HER LOVER. :)
Although, I haven’t seen THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE, & HER LOVER yet but I still have it on my “to-watchlist” for quite a while now.
Have heard of both TOTALLY FUCKED UP and THE DOOM GENERATION, might check those out soon.
Some Herzog, for god sake!
There isn’t any classic Herzog films in HD anywhere in the world, Criterion should do the work, at least with the Kinski ones.
@matheus: Herzog (or The Herzog Foundation?) is pretty stingy when it comes to the rights to his films. This has been an issue for quite some time now.
The Dude: i heard about it, the reason why it’s so difficult to find his films. But it’s a crime against humanity not allow to have something like Aguirre on Blu-ray or even a decent dvd edition, not the terrible transfers of the R1 editions (and i think that they’re the same worldwide, at least in R4).
I would be very pleased if David Gordon Green’s ‘All the Real Girls’ received a Criterion release at some point. It’s by far my favourite of his films, even if it’s not critically acclaimed, and I would relish the opportunity to see it in high-definition with more extras than are on the DVD edition.
