After seeing the temporary link on their site for Lili Marleen, I'm going to hope for that every month. Though, I'm sure they will do the Janus roll out first like they have with unreleased Fassbinder.

Other guesses for this month:

Eisenstein: The Sound Years Upgrade [-o<
Do The Right Thing
Crime and Punishment
Boy (we haven't had an Oshima in a while)

I can't help but notice people have given up speculating on Grand Budapest Hotel--otherwise, my hopes:

Irma Vep
Until the End Of the World
Eric Rohmer's Six Moral Tales (upgrade)
something from Nicholas Roeg, preferably Bad Timing
something from Wong Kar Wai, preferably 2046

Will be guessing Grand Budapest Hotel when we get close to spine 1000.

Just a quick response to Phoenix474: I had a work crunch yesterday and lost track of time. But I want to credit Boosmahn for noting how heavily Criterion has been hitting the New Year's Day clues. Last month's announcement confirmed it, although I didn't know whom to credit for that observation then, and I think this month's do too. DTRT was inevitable, I think, since July is the 30th anniversary month of its release. I hope I'll be on top of things next month.
