First off, I just want to say, December has some awesome releases!!!! Nashville? Yes! And I totally called it in a recent post about an upgrade of Grey Gardens! The Martin Scorcese box set looks really cool too. And the Elio Petri film might be worth checking out as well.

Sometimes, the best things come in small packages! (not many releases, but they are good ones).

And it totally makes sense that Criterion will be treating their upgrades as Blu-ray editions, not Dual-format editions. Excellent!

Dry Summer is an interesting one. If this is the one I'm thinking of, there's a fairly major piece of animal cruelty about half way through that totally shocked us when we watched it here. Be warned.

Absolutely! Criterion outdid themselves in '13. Let's see what 2014 has to offer!

I'm all for them releasing art house and films from different countries, but you can't forget notable and classic and cult American films. I'll admit I've barely heard of Nashville so I don't know how that one stacks up in their library.
I don't mean to come across all douchey, but maybe you shouldn't be making these comments if you haven't seen it then. I would say that Nashville is a popular title, it's a major studio release with lots of big name stars, and an Oscar winner (well, for Best Song - that counts, right!?!). It's maybe a little unconventional but if you're including Eraserhead and Mulholland Dr. as popular, then, yeah, Nashville is pretty mainstream.

I'm definitely applauding this release [Nashville]. I would count this as a favourite film of mine. I've already sent the link of the announcement to my wife as #1 on my Christmas wishlist!

There are other times when I see the announcements and say to myself "meh" when others are gushing, I just don't feel the need to add to the myriad "nothing this month" postings.

I appreciate what Criterion does but wish they wouldn't pick up so many films only to have them sit. I would rather have had After Hours than that boxed set and as for Scanners..grrrrr. Happy for those that like what was announced though.

Criterion is releasing 10 films in December! What other "big announcement" do you imagine could possibly happen later in the month considering they've already made their announcements today?

I'm thrilled to see Nashville's getting released. It's one of my all-time favorite Altman films, and one that I'd hoped Criterion would get the rights to release for years now...

It's interesting to note that while Criterion's WCF box shares two of the films from the MOC release, that one also contains a film that's not in this release. I wonder how long it'll be until we see a Volume 2, or if those of us with Region Free players will simply go for the MOC releases to get the remaining films...

Ordered. Thanks for the heads up. Melville is one of my favorites from that time period.

It happens. They finally announced the Grey Gardens upgrade after hinting at it well over a year ago. Furthermore, Y Tu Mama Tambien has been hinted at on two of the New Years clues, and was one of the first titles named as part of the IFC deal Criterion made, and it STILL hasn't been released yet. These releases take time, especially when you consider in Lynch's case that he is somewhat known for being a perfectionist and for taking his time.

Remember what happened the last time Criterion were in discussions with Lynch concerning Eraserhead. News leaked that Criterion was working on it, Lynch assumed that Criterion leaked the news themselves in an attempt to speed discussions along (which they deny), and he backed out altogether, releasing the 2000 release... in 2005. It stands to reason that they would want to keep him as happy as possible, even if they've reached the point where they can at the very least hint that it's coming...

The title that would make me happier than any other is “Y Tu Mama Tambien.” Not sure there’s a lot of love for that film around here, but it’s one of my favorites of this century.
Welcome to the forum, Brad! I see my suggestion of posting in the Criterion discussion section inspired you. I hope you enjoy it here. You posted on a good day, one of the best, with the new December releases announced.

I am very intrigued by this film. It's so difficult to make great sci fi films these days, and many good directors have tried but never truly succeeded. I have a feeling this movie will be more about action than brains, but if the action is thrilling, and I think it will really be, then this should be a fun movie to check out. It might even come to Criterion in 2014.

To find the phantom pages for the movies that will be announced today, all you have to do is go to the last person's page that was put into Criterion's database and then increase the number in the url by one. Right now Mitsuhiro Mori was the last person to be added for last months Tokyo Story upgrade with the url http://www.criterion.com/people/121416. If you change the 121416 to 121417 right now, you will get an error message because the next page yet to be uploaded, but if you keep trying, the page will show up sometime today. Of course once page 121417 is up you then move onto 121418 etc. If you go down from page 121416 you will see all the pages that were created for Frances Ha and the other November releases.
Thanks for the explanation hansolo350! I will use this strategy for the January releases next month!

Considering it's considered one of the best and potentially most influential films of the 70s, I'd say you should do some research on it.

NASHVILLE!!!!!! Now I can cross another off my wishlist. I'm not too familiar with Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion but I may blind buy it and check it out. The World Cinema set I will probably consider for a future 1/2 sale. Overall a great month to cap off a great 2013 with Criterion.

I'm so psyched for NASHVILLE.

Oh man I am drooling my tongue off!

This man singlehandedly has helped restore so many lost films from around the world. If it wasn't for this sensible, sensitive Scorpio man, the film world would not have as many gems as we do today. May this strange, bushy-browed man live beyond 100.

Wait, people are complaining about a month that includes Nashville, Grey Gardens and a box set of six world cinema classics that includes Dry Summer and The Housemaid? (That's the only two I've seen of that set but they're both brilliant and I can't wait to see the others)

Only Nashville really stands out for something I have to see. The Scorsese World set looks cool just not cool enough for a blind-buy. After November bringing two of my most anticipated (Tokyo Story and City Lights), I'll be happy till at least February (2046 please).
