      My thoughts exactly. Here's hoping Criterion got Richard Blackburn to do a commentary. And while I'm blue-skying, it would be fabulous if Paul Bartel's early shorts -- especially "The Secret Cinema" -- were included in the package as well.

      I thought that hinted at Cronenberg's Crash, Possession would be awesome though. I've emailed Criterion that as a suggestion so many times. Was Adjani on a car in Possession though?

      The woman on the car is absolutely SUMMER WITH MONIKA. There's a famous shot of Harriet Andersson on the bow of a boat and that drawing is an exact reproduction of it, right down to the placement of the legs and the rope next to the woman's head.

    There's a traffic jam in Nashville. Could that be it?

    Marionette: We're either getting "Team America," "Puppetmaster" or "Nightmare on Elm Street 3" Woman on Car: The Complete White Snake Video collection or "Grindhouse" Motorcycles: Possibly "Motor Psycho" (come on, we need some Russ Meyer already) or the underrated Police Academy Series Oysters: "Pearl Harbor" Glacier: Definitely "Titanic" Picture of Smiling Teeth: The Complete Twizzler Commercial collection (kidding - although it DOES make mouth happy)

      My God if you're correct then it's a dire future for Criterion! Titanic!? really!? That movie's been ridiculed to death [by non-american, non-uk critics]. Team America!? Pearl Harbor? My god! Do you really think that's Criterion material. All right, maybe criterion doesn't release the most risky films out there (they're pretty much fail-safe) but this is too much man!

    When is Criterion going to give us some of Ken Russell's films, particularly The Devils?

    The only one I could possibly guess at would be 'Quadrophenia'...

    Coney Island and the shape of the water... Maybe "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms"?

    I would love if "Coney Island" meant PI as opposed to (or in addition to) REQUIEM FOR A DREAM. PI is such an amazing movie, and the DVD release is a non-anamorphic tragedy (not to mention no Blu-Ray release). You'd think this would be the perfect time, with THE WRESTLER and BLACK SWAN being such big hits.

    The great thing about subscribing to HuluPlus is that many Criterion titles are on there MONTHS BEFORE their DVD releases. Many of these titles are ALREADY available for streaming on HuluPlus right now! Weekend, Eating Raoul, Three Outlaw Samurai, From the Life of the Marionettes, and many others are already on there. Identification of a Woman, for example, was on HuluPlus 7 MONTHS before the DVD/blu ray release. And everyone griped when Crierion went on HuluPlus!

    @ Luis: Have you not seen some of the titles we HAVE gotten? The Rock? Armageddon? Chasing Amy? And on LD: Boyz N The Hood? Menace II Society? Do The Right Thing? Dead Presidents? SUPERCOP?! If you do not believe Titanic and even Elm Street 3, in terms of the horror genre itself - as well as Pearl Harbor to complete the Michael Bay Trilogy - are at least on par with all or most of the aforementioned films posted above, I'm not quite sure what to tell you, sir :)

    Could the car trailer be a reference to a re-release of CONTEMPT? Don't Jack Palance and Brigitte Bardot crash into a car carrier in that movie? I can't remember. I am hoping that the man digging a hole is a reference to A MAN ESCAPED which is being released in theaters according to the newsletter. There's a picture from that film beside the article and it looks like it has been really cleaned up and straightened out. I hope that that is what it is.

    Criterion sure likes to have themselves a laugh. The only things I'm hopeful for are Being John Malcovich (unlikely), Warriors (ditto), Crash (ditto), and two von Trier films: Breaking the Waves, and/or Five Obstructions. But, the fun is in the wait and inevitable announcement.

    Still no announcement yet for Wild Strawberries - from last year's hints.
