Criterion Criterion on UHD - Post your 10 most wanted titles

It's been said Blu-ray is a niche format. Boutique labels are a niche of a niche. Many times a film only sells a couple thousand copies, if that. This site is an easy way for Criterion to check the pulse of its fans. You better believe they visit this site!

My goal with this thread is to identify the films most desired in 4K UHD format.

Let's show Criterion there is great interest in seeing films in the best presentation available.


Posting rules:
- Please select 10 movies you would purchase on 4K UHD. These are your *DAY 1 no hesitation* buys (Only choose 10. Let's keep this focused).
- Please do not rank the 10 movies 1-10. Just list them.
- choose only from existing spines in the collection
- Out of print titles are fair game
- Please do not post comments. Only include your list.


Thank you!

Hausu/House
Days of Heaven
Eraserhead
Don't Look Know
Fantastic Planet
The Thin Red Line
Repo Man
Solaris
Stalker
Life Aquatic

And could easily add another 10. There are also tons of black and white films that I would consider but I'm still waiting to see how much older B&W films might benefit from the format.

All the TOHO Godzilla films that Criterion picked up and all the classic Japanese films they have 4K masters for. A new and proper cut of The Thin Red Line would be greatly appreciated.

Check out the 4k trailer for "Detour" that Janus Films posted... I'd like to see that at UHD disc bitrates.
