In my mind, Mirror has to be spine #1001, right?

Bamboozled
Mirror
Paris is Burning
The Prince of Tides

Taste of Cherry [upgrade]

And to those of you that keep guessing The Elephant Man - stop getting my hopes up.

I'm not sure why folks pick the Mirror, it has not yet been listed on the Janus site. All the Mosfilms have hit the Janus site first with touring dates before Criterion have released them.

They're picking it for the 1001 spine pun

.....just so they know of having a zero chance of being correct. (Of course unless Bressonaire picks it)

Surely spine #1001 will be a Mission: Impossible box set

I thought about this, and couldn’t remember if Stalker’s restoration was announced for theatrical run before or immediately after its announcement, but then guessed it anyway because it would be cool. Bressonaire’s guess is all that matters.

At some point they'll have to do Pasolini's Gospel According to Matthew, right?

I could go for a Lady Eve upgrade, but this is probably Bringing Up Baby's window.

The podcast from last month made it sound like we shouldn't be expecting Lady Eve anytime soon given how bad the elements are for it.

Nothing personal, but I hope these are all wrong! (Have Irma Vep and CoM from arrow; dislikes Betty Blue, Non Fiction sounds pretty benign. I will take GBH for sure though!)
I do hope we get the Cranes upgrade!

In the "Forthcoming Criterion & Criterion Channel Titles" thread is indicated Teorema as the next title from Pasolini we should expect

I'm holding out hope for The Cameraman. That alone would make my month!

I’m nostalgic for the silliness of the spine 1000 speculation, so in that vein:

Terror of the mecha-studio canal! (A dozen ish studio canal titles announced)

And/or

Akira Kurasawa’s Cinema

I think that after last month, we should also take bets on whether the announcements will be today, tomorrow, next week, etc.
