The gossip on MoC. Lists and polls are STRONGLY discouraged.

Considering Indicator has no intention of releasing any non-English language films, you'd think MoC would at least focus their attention more there
That's what I thought too. It would also probably be considered as some kind of step back to the sources of what MoC were doing at the beginning. With more competition than ever in this segment, that'd make even more sense.

I assume you mean the Sony library, in which case I'm wondering the same thing. Crowd-pleasers like Sollima's The Big Gundown and Honda's Mothra are available, as is Ringo Lam's Full Contact (which they'd be wise to consider if I'm correct in assuming they're planning to release John Woo's A Better Tomorrow as part of their current deal with Fortune Star).

As for MoC fare, Clouzot's La Vérité, Kusturica's Time of the Gypsies and Visconti's Sandra may be up for grabs, though Criterion may be interested in those.

Criterion has  La Vérité and I have reason to suspect they will be announcing it soon.

Personally, I'm particularly pleased to see the release of Monkey Shines which I don't think I've seen since its original theatrical release - I remember it as being one of Romero's finest films (despite a last minute cheap shock added by the studio). At the time I was an undergraduate and was doing a course on Horror cinema - the course leader was a huge Romero fan and had chosen him as the subject for the Auteurism part of the class and Monkey Shines fitted very nicely into the Auteurist reading that he had proposed.
