Only the intercostal clavicle on the skeleton is a clue for Bringing Up Baby; the rest of the skeleton must signify something else. My bet is a stand-alone version of The White Stadium, the Olympic film about the 1928 St. Moritz games where, as everyone knows, the sport of skeleton was introduced.

I really wanted that river (of blood?) with the days to be the Shining

I'm thinking apart from Graduation and Beyond the Hills, the 9 hats (4+3+2) also suggests 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days perhaps for a Mungiu boxset.

With streaming, it's all kevyip.

I'm pretty sure a streaming kevyip would be paying for Filmstruck (et all) and never using it.

As the skeleton is upright and "alive", maybe it means Dawn of the Dead!

Could L knight be Bresson’s Lancelot du lac?

Apart from the prospect of seeing more Bergman, nothing confirmed from this drawing holds any immediate interest for me. In fact, I will go so far as to say that Michael Moore is the least deserving of Criterion status since Spike Lee.

Not many surprises here. Most of the clues we already knew were in the pipeline. They've become a bit stingy with the last few whacky drawings.

The man on the raft (with a scarf?) looks like Peter Bogdanovich to me.

Someone guessed Paper Moon, right?

Is it really Bowling for Columbine? Was it already mentioned how it seems odd to make a silly cartoon drawing with that material (though I suppose there is the cartoonish segment in that movie); I was really hoping Lebowski would find its way to Criterion, but it seems a 4K is coming out from Universal later this year.

I think the skeleton is “Dead Man”, which Criterion recently announced was being restored.

Wasn't Dead Man already a newsletter clue though? Or does that not matter

Doesn't matter. They've put stuff in the New Years clue that had already been officially announced!

gotta get in the crazy somehow, right?

so that arrow, obviously not for Bowling for Columbine, right?

obviously it's an arrow pointing north-westerly, so North By Northwest in 4K is clearly coming! ;)

The woman and the crescent moon, could it be for The Virgin Spring upgrade? The girl is sitting on the young (crescent) moon and waiving a (Swedish?) flag.

Could it also signify a whole bunch of Bergman’s films since it’s his centennial and Janus is touring 25+ of his films?

I thought it was a literal arrow going through the Knight's head. Makes me think Monty Python and the Holy Grail even more if that wasn't the case (which would be totally welcomed by me). I never thought a pointed arrow was necessary for the bowling ball and bullets to mean Bowling for Columbine (since the bowling ball is in motion in that direction).

And what if that’s not the crescent moon but the letter C for Bergman’s Centennial.

The arrow is definitely on the knight as the bowling ball already has motion lines coming off of it.

I’m not so sure that it is, particularly given the lack of fletching.

This was with New Yorker Films. Criterion have released a number of their former titles. So, this makes sense.

Were there clips of that on the A to Z feature on L'Argent? Can't remember now.

Took me a while, but the moon one is Bergman. He was often referred to as "dämonregissören", roughly translated as "the daemon-director". And he had demons in his signature.
dame-moon -> daemon
And the flag is Swedish then.


The Swedish flag is undeniably a Bergman reference, but I'm not sure how the moon plays into it. Moreover, I think the little hatch marks above the moon indicate motion. There's a 1948 film called Moonrise that might be in the Criterion arsenal. The director is Frank Borzage.
