Public-domain silent films, simply because Criterion does a solid job of cleaning them up. Kino is also a good boutique label for sharp-looking silent films.
I’d really like to see a Criterion edition of The Wild Bunch and I hope they getthe licensing rights one more to release another edition of Straw Dogs.

But not before they release Stalker.

At last, finally got my list of films Criterion should release at last. (Featuring more titles on the way.)
How about some Marx Brothers films for collection. The commentary on them would be amazing!
Wim Wender’s Road Trilogy
The Apu Trilogy
In A Year With 13 Moons
Secrets and Lies
La Dolce Vita
