Criterion and Netflix and Amazon

The scuttlebutt on Criterion, Eclipse, and Janus Films. Lists and polls are STRONGLY discouraged.

I hope Dolemite Is My Name gets a release, if not by Criterion at least.

I would imagine that Karim Ainouz' Un certain regard winner INVISIBLE LIFE is a strong candidate for a Criterion release à la COLD WAR which didn't receive a physical release in the U.S. Or at least I am hoping!

You know, now that I think about it, Macon Blair's shaggy I DO NOT FEEL AT HOME WITH THIS WORLD ANYMORE was a gem of a rural/suburban noir, shambling along in inventive and realistic ways, very much like a Joe Lansdale book, but without the crude humour and annoying smart-assery that he feels compelled to insert into his work. I would love a physical Criterion release.

The Highwaymen would make a nice release on physical media, again maybe not Criterion but somewhere that can fill out a disc with documentaries and such relative to the story and period itself would be cool.

I just rewatched Gimme Danger this evening. Could we ever see Criterion ever releasing this? I know Amazon only distributed it, and put it out on a DVD (in 2016 which is odd).
I think it is intoxicating, even if one isn’t a Stooges fan. Of the later Jarmusch films, this is definitely my favorite, and having an Iggy Pop interview on the disc separate from the film would be a treat.

Amazon seems to be a one-off deal unlike the recent collaborations with Netflix and Neon.

Netflix need to licence I'm Thinking Of Ending Things, and the new Fincher to Criterion, even if it's six months after their streaming premiere.

Jarmusch has stated that as he regains the rights to his films, he offers them to Criterion for re-release. His relationship with the label seems to be a good one, but it appears the rights to any given film need to revert to the director first before a Criterion edition is planned. I wonder how long Amazon will be holding the rights to Gimme Danger? I attended the Detroit premiere of the documentary back in 2016 which featured both Jarmusch and Pop doing an introduction to the film and a follow-up Q & A. I have no idea if the Q & A was recorded, but it was great fun.

Anyone know if this is true also of Year of the Horse? Would imagine maybe that one is owned by Neil Young.

The copyright for Year of the Horse is credited to Young's film company ("Shakey Pictures, Inc.") so that's probably the case.
