I will guess Mario Monicelli's The Passionate Thief as the out of left field release.

I would assume at the least that they have the rights to Of Mice and Men (Lewis Milestone); which is from the same library as some of the Visconti/Fellini titles in print. The Image releases are all long out of print; the Criterion editions are still readily available. (Plus they just teased Rocco and His Brothers)

Did you find a list of Film Inc + Audio-Brandon films? I could only find small IMDB pages (which includes Adventures of Prince Achmed, Red Psalm, and The Cow - all of which would be great Criterion titles).

There's also this blog - which includes Siberian Lady Macbeth, El (1953), The Nun (Rivette) among others.

Would be interesting to know what else was in Image's library - as I assumed most of it went to either Milestone or Flicker Alley, but I suppose there's quite a bit of other stuff Image released that's now somewhat in limbo -that might make sense (like Tabu is apparently no longer with Milestone, I wonder if that was part of Criterion's purchase). I'll stop myself from dreaming before I start thinking of things like an Eames or McLaren sets, as who knows what all the purchase entails (and if it even included any homevideo rights - although the tease of Rocco is a great indicator towards that end, hopefully they'll start adding stuff to Hulu soon, so we can find out). Anyone also have a good list of Image Entertainment DVDs? As if I need to get my hopes up any higher :P

Personally speaking, I'm hoping another Lloyd film gets announced

Moonrise kingdom will probably be some silly number like spine 777 or 800, so I think unfortunately still a few months away.

I hope that's somehow the Moonrise Kingdom cover so Domino can spontaneously combust
