More Bergman on the way. Perhaps the MGM Bergman's, unless new interviews for upgrades.

Shame or an upgrade of the Trilogy would make me most happy.

I wonder, why Bologna? Did Ritrovato do some new restoration that I don't know about?

I did think for a moment that they were just scouting new locations to move the Criterion Closet into! :wink:

I actually thought it was Werner Herzog before I read the caption.

If he's there on business it would most likely be for True Stories, no?

I know closet visits usually mean nothing, but it would be nice to think we're getting a nice blu ray of True Stories.

True Stories is in much greater need.

Looking at his resume it could be quite a lot of things. I do see To Sleep with Anger was a film he produced. That was supposedly forthcoming correct?

Yes, To Sleep with Anger is supposed to be coming. I think it is either that film or they are finally upgrading Sisters. Assuming, of course, that the interview isn't for Filmstruck.

I'm leaning toward Burnett, but perhaps a Paul Williams film since they founded the company together.

Pressman was also executive producer for True Stories and seeing how David Byrne was in the Closet, perhaps it is a possibility.
