I’m fairly new to collecting Criterion blurays. That said I’d love to see a Criterion release of -

Cabaret
Klute
The Lacemaker
Daddie Nostalgie released here in the UK as These Foolish Things
The Music Lovers
The Devils
Performance

I’m not up on which studios hold the various rights so unaware which releases would be likely/unlikely but keen to hear opinions.


'Klute' has long been one of my most-wanted titles on Blu-ray. I remember there was some speculation on this forum a year or two ago that Criterion might have licensed it from Warner as part of their deal, but I haven't heard anything recently. Has anyone heard anything about a possible release?

There was a list that ianungstad posted on page 14/15 of the Warner Bros. thread that prompted speculation that actually came into fruition. The list was a sort of backbone to their release slate from Cat People in 09/16 to Barry Lyndon in 10/17, but nothing from that list has cropped up since. The only films not released from that list are Klute, The Magnificent Ambersons, and A Face in the Crowd, all still as good candidates for Criterion as any.

Someone asked Lynne Ramsay on her Reddit AMA about the possibility of Blu-Ray releases for Ratcatcher and Morvern Callar and her response was "Yeah let's get on to Criterion about that. Can you guys help?"

So it doesn't sound like Criterion is currently working on a Ratcatcher upgrade, sadly.

I always thought/hoped the BFI would release blus of her first two films.
If you’re looking for big-name support for Criterion releases, I believe Barry Jenkins would be there to help.

I was just thinking to myself about the works of Ken Russell, as I am one to do, and it hit me. Is there any chance that his (unofficial) Great Composers Trilogy could be coming from Criterion?

I believe MisterLime hinted that Criterion had two of a list of four titles (one of which was Women in Love), and the other three, including The Music Lovers, have not seen the light of day yet from any company.
Additionally, a few years back, Mahler was streaming on Hulu under their banner, which means they at least had some rights to it.
And finally, the Warner deal could make Lisztomania viable.

Seems possible.

Then that's the better chance when you'll see the whole kit and kaboodle.

It’s an amazing release month but perhaps more importantly I got 3/5 correct.

Not only is this the first "I want one of everything!" month all year, it happens to be in the sale month. Bless.

I'm going to have to revisit Sex, Lies and Videotape which I haven't seen in many, many years. Wasn't something that registered then.

Not a fan of Sex, Lies and Videotape, but that Dietrich box is the release of the year.

Four out of five on my guesses this month. A personal record. Only missed sex, lies, and videotape.

Gob-smacked on the Dietrich/Sternberg box set. What a beauty! The restorations should be stunning.

Here's your speculation round-up:

Dietrich & von Sternberg in Hollywood - Scarlet Empress (an upgrade) = 2018 New Years clue (red M-Press); Dietrich (D-trick) was the Feb, 2018 newsletter clue (some thought it was just for Morocco, others thought a boxset), Shanghai Express has been rumored for as long as I've been a member here (it was on the "eternally delayed" section of the forthcoming list). Apparently it was rumored since 2001?! Is that a record? Is that older than the speculation for the Eisenstein box?

Dragon Inn - Was touring alongside Touch of Zen several years ago, not sure why the holdup until now. Also on Filmstruck.

Bull Durham - January 2018 newsletter clue (boulder + ham)

Sex, lies, and videotape - Confirmed via Criterion email asking for people to submit questions. Also a former Laserdisc title.

A Matter of Life and Death - Was recently restored by Sony, has been rumored forever, but there was nothing definitive proving or pinning it to a future Criterion list other than the thought "what? Sony really going to release it themselves?"
===================================================
260 upgrades remain. I'm surprised that Tree of Life was left out - as they have a history of releasing Malick in July (Thin Red Line + New World), but I certainly won't complain about what we did get! This month (and to an extent, 2018), seem to wrap up alot of long-speculated films that we've been expecting for years. Midnight Cowboy was of course the eternal newsletter clue conspiracy joke. Then finally getting Matter of Life and Death, along with Shanghai Express - both of which have been bandied about on this forum as forthcoming for ages! Dragon Inn was also long MIA for no real reason.

Is Female Trouble the only WB licensed film of 2018 so far? Wonder what the holdup is? I guess Criterion is backlogged with a lot of other stuff at the moment (its mostly been Universal / MGM this year).
====================================
I found this to be rather amusing:
Kanopy added a bunch of Frederick Wiseman films to their service. I use Justwatch.com to find out whats new on streaming services, and they decided to use the below image for the poster image. I checked Kanopy, and Titicut Follies is available from Wiseman's company, not Criterion - so this should very much be considered a mistake on Justwatch's part.

The Thin Red Line was a September 2010 release. It was delayed from it's original July release date of that year for reasons I still have no idea
