Bukowski's not one of those writers I'd recommend for a book group haha.

Funny story, the first book I was assigned in college was "Ham on Rye", which I'd read in high school. I was thinking after that, "Man, college reading lists are going to be awesome." I was wrong.
I didn't know that Criterion has a relationship with Barbet Schroder. That gives me hope! It would be great if they could have some footage of Bukowski on the extras. It seems like many people I meet who are familiar with Bukowski find him offensive. I'm not as into him as I was when I was younger, but like Hoke Moseley said it's a great movie and I think it's Mickey Rourke's best so it might have appeal beyond Bukowski.

Thanks for the tip on the Australian release. I'll try to track that down.

I wish I had been assigned Ham on Rye in college. My English professors probably would have thrown me out of the class if I suggested it.

Winslow Boy would be perfect for Criterion because it's Mamet, it's based on a well-respected play (by Terence Rattigan), it's an artsy period film, and it's got brilliant intelligent dialogue and excellent acting. Criterion's already released another Rattigan play (The Browning Version) on DVD, so it would make sense to do Winslow Boy.
I feel like "Winslow Boy" was very quickly forgotten because it's such an unusual Mamet movie in so many different ways. But it definitively deserves better, it's one of his best films.

Yeah, Schroder's documentaries like "General Idi Amin Dada" and "Koko: A Talking Gorilla" are in the collection. "Reversal of Fortune" is another Schroder film I'd love to see get a release.

Some of Bukowski's stuff, like "Women", is pretty hard to stomach. Bukowski was clearly in a bad place when he wrote that and it's regrettable IMO. I love "Factotum", "Ham on Rye", and "Post Office" though. As for being assigned "Ham on Rye", that particular prof was just badass. He was teaching Intro to Literature and was just like "F**k it, I'm assigning what I want." So, we read Vonnegut, Bukowski, Tom Wolfe, John Irving, Don DeLillo, etc. Definitely was an outlier instead of a trend unfortunately.

I would get the Schroeder documentaries now while they are on sale if I hadn't spent so much this month already. I'm really interested in the Koko one. I'll probably have to wait for the next flash sale.

I agree that "Women" was awful. I remember struggling to finish it. IMO the other three you mentioned are his best, with Post Office being my favorite. Hollywood and Pulp were okay but forgettable. I would like to see Factotum get the Criterion treatment. That Intro to Lit class must have been great fun.

Just got my 100th---the Colors trilogy.

Technically I'm over 100 if you count individual releases and ones I've lost over the years such as Robocop.

Apparently, counting by hand, I have 92 Criterion spines on Blu-ray and 25 on DVD.

It seems like I'm missing something.

Then again, I haven't slept in a couple days, so this might not be the best time to be counting by hand.

It seems that this spectacular and very expensive Chinese edition is the only one worldwide yet that it includes the 4K scan of The Last Emperor in 2D!

Do you think Criterion could re-release it?
Along with the TV cut too?

You should rectify that as soon as possible.

Preferably under the influence of some sort of psychedelic drug.

I recommend peyote.
Wouldn't that be kinda redundant? The movie itself is a drug.

Yeah, it sure looks like it.

It's interesting, "trippy" films are actually terrible to watch while on drugs (i.e. "Fear and Loathing", "House", "The Holy Mountain", etc). Films that are completely grounded in reality are the funniest thing to watch on mushrooms, for example, because reality is funnier than anything. Absurd human constructs that we create for no reason are by far what makes you laugh the most when you're tripping on something.

Seems it's unavailable now. I had my pre-order locked-in already, but I hope they don't cancel for "price issues." That's happened before.

I don’t find drug movies to be enjoyable to watch while high either. Corny melodramas are fun. I remember watching The Happy Ending while high (on weed) and getting all super emotional over the woman’s sad life, which makes me laugh now because I’m usually pretty reserved.

I agree. In college, my buddy and I watched "Little Big League" after smoking weed and were crying and rolling on the floor laughing. I also remember watching "She's All That" on mushrooms while my roommate sat on the balcony of our apartment just staring for multiple hours (people probably thought he was insane) and laughing to the point of my stomach hurting.
