    I was hoping it was a reference to Tabu, but I don't think that's the case

    Do the 5 black lines represent anything? Perhaps the Five Obstructions?

    First one I think of for the Coney Island reference is The Warriors

    I can think of a few movies that Coney Island could be referring to: Requiem for a Dream; Enemies, A Love Story; The Warriors.

    and the increasingly dim flame I hold in hopes of getting The Royal Tenenbaums on blu-ray continues to flicker...

      It could still happen. They can't pack EVERY single release into this picture.

      Tenenbaums is already confirmed by Anderson himself to be "coming soon."

    The bow could be for the Korean film "The Bow" by Kim Ki-duk. Criterion released their first Korean film last Aug. I'll be very excited if it is :)

    Is the mime a reference to a much needed Criterion for "Blow Up" ? Sure hope so

    Okay oKAY, Maybe I'm just wanting to see it but maybe Punch Drunk Love is officially coming to Criterion? I want it so bad I see it in the picture. But couldn't the threesome going on there be a Jules and Jim upgrade? And the iceberg is definitely a Night To Remember. The cars are screwing with my head, why so many, and why a semi carrying even more cars??

      I'd love to see Punch Drunk Love added to the collection. Such a rare kind of films.

    It's really crazy to think about all the films that need the upgrade and to think there are only 12 months in a year. I mean it would take a whole year just to upgrade the 100-200# spines up to Blu Ray but also releasing new films and some spines in the 300s. We may not get every blu ray upgrade we want. But I am excited for almost every release announced already. can't wait to watch A Night to Remember on Blu Ray and Tiny Furniture is very underrated and I'm sure the special features will be enlightening to other filmmakers out there who are using DSLRs. But really where is the Jules and Jim Blu Ray??????

    ok....this is a serious stretch but everyone (including me) seems to having trouble with the 3 oysters and pearls, so I'm just gonna throw this one out there. Possibly Cover Girl? One of the recurring scenes is that the three broke friends go to an oyster bar hoping to find a pearl in their dinner. The irony is that after Rita Hayworth has made it big, Gene Kelly pulls one from his oyster. Not the most "Criterion-ish" selection, but I got nothin' else...

    Samurai Trilogy hi-def release would be a blessing indeed. The two guys embracing the gal is more likely Y Tu Mama Tambien than Jules and Jim due to the hair colorations—but then who knows, maybe its a obscure French menage-a-tois film we all need to watch.

    I was just assuming the water was for Gojira since it is bulging as if Godzilla is about to emerge.

    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)

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

    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.

    2012 Criterion Collection Wish List: 'Y Tu Mama Tambien', 'Weekend', 'Breaking the Waves', 'Dancer in the Dark', Requiem for a Dream', 'Picnic at Hanging Rock', 'Wild Strawberries', and 'The Virgin Spring'. I see all of these films in the picture above...sort of...
