Angelopoulos has a chance i think, but only after he dies. i get the feeling he will be one of those directors that is appreciated more posthumously. people will realise how coherent and interesting his body is work is. until then, can’t see it happening./
i’d love to see more Yimou films. Raise the red lantern, to live etc.
They need to get Ray’s films so I can finally see them!
Also I’d love to see King Hu’s “A Touch of Zen”
MEMORIAS DEL SUBDESAROLLO
Somebody mentioned Pedro Almodovar. That woudl be an awesome eclipse set.
I should start working for Criterion.
some Park Chan-Wook or Kim Ji-Woon, i would want The Vengeance Trilogy and/or Thirst by Chan-Wook, and I Saw the Devil and/or A Bittersweet Life by Ji-Woon.
also, how in the hell have they NOT picked up Almodovar or Haneke by now?? I know they have to go through a huge process possessing the rights for distribution and whatnot, but…c’mon.
