      I thought exactly the same thing. Hell, I would kill for a commentary with Reiner and Martin.

      Almost as great as a Criterion release of Los Olvidados. (Seriously, what is the holdup on that?)

      My favorite line from The Jerk: "P.S. Is Grandma still farting?" - Steve Martin as Navin Johnson in one of several "letters back home" voice-overs.

      I agree Craig! More Bunuel! And Reiner!

      In fact, there's never been a Blu ray release of the Jerk! C'mon guys!

    Untrue, slide #7! Philip Glass's first film score was for the wonderful 1966 documentary Inquiring Nuns, for which he was paid a grand total of $100 by two University of Chicago students who had just formed a nascent production company titled Kartemquin Films, eventually the producer of Hoop Dreams and the Interrupters and Golub 88. I definitely have never worked there.

    Wait a minute, guys and gals. Take another look at that "Jerk" picture. Looks to me like a screen grab from a high-def master. Plus, that coloring looks like a Universal Home Video job. My money's on "The Jerk" to be a bonafide Criterion release, one they'll probably announce today

    Well I did not know that Lean's Lawrence of Arabia influenced Ridggeio's reason to film in 70mm. It was great to see that why he wanted to do that
