• Long before Stanley Kubrick was Stanley Kubrick!, he was a young photographer for Look magazine, snapping for the publication starting at age seventeen. A collection of two hundred pictures that Kubrick took between 1945 and 1950 will be on view in Venice as part of the exhibition Stanley Kubrick Fotografo. Curated by Rainer Crone, the show, opening at the Instituto Veneto on August 28 and running through November 14, is the first of its kind, spotlighting a previously largely unstudied aspect of Kubrick’s life and career.

    As Criterion now have the rights to Paramount,any chance of Criterion releasing Michael Manns The Keep (1983) Island of Lost Souls (1933) Marlon Brando's One Eyed Jacks (1960) and John Frankenheimers Seconds (1966). These titles are OOP and The keep has never been released. While im happy about new versions of Stagecoach and Night of the hunter, these titles have already been released elsewhere.

    It is almost a crime that Barry Lyndon has not been done in Blue-Ray yet! It is the most deserving film outside of 2001: A Space Odyssey in scope and scale and cinematic beauty. And for some reason is overlooked. Anything Stanley Kubrick did needs the Blue Ray treatment.

      Great news! There is a Kubrick blu ray collection that includes Spartacus, Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut. Actually, I just watched Barry Lyndon today in 1080p on blu ray and it's gorgeous!

    I would like to see Louis Malle's Damage. How about the following titles as well: Polanski's Cul de Sac Mann's The Keep as noted ( the original cut) Karel Reisz' Who'll Stop the Rain (MGM butchered the transfer; 1st 20 minutes looks like a street bootleg. Movie desperately needs your help) Antonioni's uncut Zabriskie Point and Il Grido Brando's Lying for a Living (his unreleased documentary) Wild Man Blues Von Stroheim's Greed John Huston's The Man Who Would Be King William Friedkin's Sorcerer Clean and Sober (1988) James L. Brooks I'll Do Anything ( w/ restored musical numbers)

    Why not secure the rights to Ken Russell's THE DEVILS. If any company can give this film a proper DVD and Blu Ray, it is Criterion. Warner has not even deemed it for release on their Warners Archive label. How about it ?

    What will it take for Criterion to release 'One Eyed Jacks' remastered in DVD and BD?? all request seems to fall on deaf ears with the Criterion management. They release so much other foreign junk. Come on release an American heritage and make us all happy, before this generation is gone..........

    The independent cinema I work for just tried to screen ONE EYED JACKS in a digital screening room for the film's 50th Anniversary, and had to cancel all shows due to the impossibly poor quality of the dvd's image. Please, please, please, Criterion, RESTORE THE FILM and put out a proper dvd! I remember how stunning it was when I saw it years ago on film!

    "Criterion can have satisfaction any time it pleases...by calling on Redmond Barry, Esquire of Barryville." Ha,ha...why is Barry Lyndon not in the Criterion Collection? Its one of the finest films to grace the silver screen.

      Because it's already out on an exquisite Blu-ray - not much in the way of extras, but that's all you're gettin' unless you look to other regions.

    There are literally thousands of us who desperately want to see one of those exquisite Criterion remastering BluRays of the one and only directing effort from America's finest ever film actor........now you know what movie I'm talking about......One Eyed Jacks.....I looked at your entire catalog the other day and I was blown away by the diversity and quality of the movies, but I've got to tell you something, if Stagecoach and The Night of the Hunter deserve the Criterion treatment, and they do, then One Eyed Jacks should be a lock for Criterion. One Eyed Jacks is one of the most visually stunning movies I've ever seen and I have been a hardcore movie junkie for 55-years. Death Vallley's Zabriskie Point, Big Sur, Carmel, Ben Johnson, Karl Malden, Katy Jurado, Slim Pickens and Marlon Brando, you know you need to be the ones to do justice to this Wesern Masterpiece as soon as possible.

    Yep...One-Eyed Jacks has every criterion needed for a Criterion treatment. It wouldn't be so bad if a decent copy existed...but it doesn't. So this isn't just a great film that needs extra bonus features...it's a great film that needs someone to restore it & preserve it for future generations.

    THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING deserves the CRITERION treatment in full length and sound. When will you do it??????????

    One Eyed Jacks desperately needs a champion in the way of Criterion before it is forever lost to the DVD dollar store dustbins. There is not a single watchable copy in existence. Visually stunning, superior acting, and directed by one of our greatest, if not the greatest American actor.
