Gotta love how Sony/Columbia seems to have washed its hands of ANY title over 25 years old. :roll:

Am I the only person who doesn't like Time Bandits?

Oh, I love that cover of Palm Beach Story. Would pay for a full size poster of that(without Criterion logos etc), does anyone do that sort of thing?

October releases:

Amazing month, with some wonderful films, packages and covers. The Tati set will probably end up being the release of the year.


I didn't like The Vanishing. It just bored me rather than kept me in suspense. I do want to see Insomnia, though. I loved Nolan's take on it, and anyone who has seen The Glass House can attest to the fact that Stellan Skarsgaard can play a villain as well as anyone else.

And I saw a post for Late Ray. I'm assuming that Satyajit Ray. Is that worth getting? I haven't seen any of his work, but everyone makes him out to be some sort of film god.

The covers are striking, but I have to admit that I'm unfamiliar with Costa-Gavras and Leo McCarey. Should I be?

I'm not familiar with the titles here, but Costa Gavras directed Z, which is one of the great political thrillers. Leo McCarey is more famous for directing The Awful Truth, Duck Soup and My Favorite Wife, and the famous romances Love Affair and An Affair to Remember. I think my favorite of his films is the Harold Lloyd talkie The Milky Way.

Thanks! Well, I guess I have seen plenty of Leo McCarey then. For whatever reason, his name doesn't stand out as the director of Duck Soup, My Favorite Wife, and An Affair to Remember for me. And I'm familiar with Z, but I haven't seen it.

Make Way for tomorrow was an inspiration for Yasujiro Ozu' s Tokyo Story.

Wish this thread would get locked and shut away though I suppose, in retrospect, it was always a shameless promotion.

The Rose! Looking forward to Cinderella Liberty getting a 4k transfer.

OK, that's what I call a good month. The only downside is that I already own My Dinner with André on Criterion Blu-ray, so I have double-dip if I want that box set.
