      I couldn't agree more!

    Probably should've had more diversity like Black Orpheus, In the Mood for Love or even Mala Noche.

      The lack of hugging and kissing in In the Mood for Love is kind of the point.

    Criterion completely skipped their two finest romantic films, Antichrist and Salo Or The 120 Days Of Sodom. Now that's hugging and kissing! (Don't kill me, its a joke!)

    Two favorite celluloid kisses omitted here are those between Magdalena Montezuma and Annette Tirier in Werner Schroeter's 1972 masterpiece 'Der Tod der Maria Malibran', and the passionate reunion embrace between Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) in Ang Lee's magisterial 2005 feature 'Brokeback Mountain'.

      In their slideshows, Criterion only features shots from films that are in the Collection. Neither of the films you mentioned are in the Collection.

      This is in reply to AnneOther's question. According to Amazon's website, the region for the DVD transfer of Schroeter's film is "All Regions", but with the codicil: "Germany released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: it WILL NOT play on standard US DVD player. You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada". I should add that I have not seen this DVD myself, having experienced the film via celluloid projection back in the 1980s.

      This is in response to Luke's reply. Thank you for clarifying about the methods used for the galleries. I did still want to affirm my passion for two personal favorite films on a website that graciously allows member and non-member alike to post and comment on its message boards.

    That last one is amazing. "There hasn't been this much love in the room since Narcissus discovered himself!"

    No Grace Kelly kissing James Stewart in Rear Window?

      Just saw that an above comment beat me to this joke. Dang.
