I wanted to weigh in on Bowling for Columbine. At times I feel its an exploitation film, but at other times I feel its an important documentary film that many filmmakers wouldn't have the balls to make. Sure, the final scene with Charlton Heston was a bit ridiculous, but it's Moore's best film, and if Criterion chooses one film of his in the collection, this would be the one I'd choose to showcase. Obviously, gun massacres aren't going away anytime soon, so this film being re-released can only bring more awareness to a neverending problem.

So after years of having A Matter of Life and Death in my CC profile as most wanted just because it's one of the more well known archer films which I have not seen.

I decided to watch it for the first time in Filmstruck and it was definitely not what I was expecting in the way that it is not on the same level as the ones already released for me.

It's visually stunning and has all the same technical qualities of the others but at some point when...
[Show spoiler]it becomes a courtroom drama and suddenly it kinds of forgets the plot and they start discussing about their nationalities it lost me, I mean that doesn't have anything to do with whether she loved him or not
and when they go back to the plot I could not get completely into the movie again so I don't think I enjoyed the ending as much as I should.

Anyway... most wanted now is Dancer in the Dark, do it Criterion

Waking Life is another Linklater title that Criterion should be releasing in the future.

Criterion fares very well in Beaver's annual review. Four titles in the Top 10, including the top three (it's a massive article; the link jumps to the Top 10):

I always enjoy Gary's enthusiasm, and appreciate the huge effort he and other contributors put into the site.

The Jessie and Celine segment from this is the only thing wrong with the otherwise perfect Before box set. Really wish they could have included it somehow.

I don't think the skeleton is a clue for Dead Man. Criterion has already confirmed that's on the way. Why would they waste a clue on a title that's been confirmed? It's gotta be for something else.

I hope the L Knight is a clue for El Sur! I want a Victor Erice boxset!

it's a bad film with a lot of silly presumptions & conjecture (i.e. the columbine kids were influenced by the military industry in the area.....what? or that Canadians don't lock their front doors.....what?)

Bowling for Columbine just seems like an odd choice. I can't imagine there being that much demand for it, especially if it's a full MSRP title. I'm already confident that it'll be one of their weakest selling titles in 2018.

I will definitely be purchasing it, so there's going to be at least one buyer.

I completely disagree. Itís not an odd choice, since itís an acclaimed documentary and its issues are still very timely. Itís also one of the highest grossing documentary films ever and Michael Moore is high profile (for better or worse). It will sell well since itís a well-known film; itíll undoubtedly sell better than the somewhat obscure titles released over the past few years, even though I think it has little replay value (but is a great film).
Top unannounced domestic blu wants:

1) Satantango; 2) El Cuerpo; 3) Room in Rome; 4) Le Samourai; 5) Los Ojos de Julia; 6) The Burmese Harp; 7) Werckmeister Harmonies; 8) Match Point; 9) Searching for Bobby Fischer; 10) Before Sunset/Sunrise; 11) Solaris (2002); 12) A Matter of Life and Death; 13) The Return; 14) In the Bedroom; 15) Floating Weeds; 16) Sin Nombre; 17) The Circus; 18) Bob le Flambeur; 19) Tokyo Twilight ; 20) Grizzly Man; 21) MR 73; 22) Sophie Scholl: The Final Days

Yeah, I mean, it's not difficult to understand why it's being brought to the collection. It was a documentary that made its way to mainstream culture at the time, which is rather unheard of, and is, in a way, now more relevant than ever. Disagree with Moore's politics or approach to the form, he remains one of the most prominent documentarians of recent times, for better or worse.

I really have to disagree with this take here. In the doc world itís still wildly popular and remains timely.
Waiting for the all female blu-ray.com reboot.

Not convinced the skeleton is Dead Man or Bringing Out The Dead or even Bringing Up Baby (if it were a dinosaur skeleton, you'd have me convinced).

Under The Skin? Great film, and would make for a helluva October release.

Any chance that tree could represent Aronofsky's The Fountain? I've been dreaming of a Criterion release of that one for years.

Are we 100% sure the bowling ball isn't a Kingpin clue?

Since TOL is a given, I really hope it is.
