Criterion Newsletter: Clues and More, Volume Four

The previous thread was causing a lot of double-postings due to people getting impatient with the load time after submitting, so let's see if a new thread can help these issues

Previously on the Criterion Forum...

I thought the same. It's a much needed release, too, given the age of the old DVD. I could see them pairing the release with Barton Fink.

One caveat to this being correct is that the jacket doesn't really match anything Thornton wears in that film as far as I can tell.

First thought was a Blu-Ray upgrade for Missing, though considering nothing is in blue, I doubt it.

"The Invisble Man" is the only one I can think of.

Also possible The Man Who Never Was since they love Ronald Neame-directed films so much..

Well it probably isn't Trenchcoat.

I'm going to go with that. I think there was a restoration of it recently. Even if there wasn't a restoration it seems like the more reasonable answer.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess Alfred Hitchcock's Secret Agent (1936), starring Madeleine Carroll, Peter Lorre, John Gielgud, and Robert Young.

Criterion has a number of other Hitchcock films of this period up on iTunes, but not this one. But it has been previously released on Criterion LaserDisc.

I was trying to figure if somehow The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog (i.e., London Fog raincoat) might fit, but that doesn't seem right.

So with clues out for Barton fink llewyn Davis and man who wasn't there are they doing an existential Coen boxset?

All reasonable guesses.

I'll add The Strangers from "Dark City."

Well, I believe Kino lost the rights to all of the Haneke's, so it's possible...

First thought was The Bespoke Overcoat- the question being the overcoat responding to someone speaking to it? Who knows.

Simply because people wear coats in MISSING?

There are like a million better ways to make a clue for Missing than that
