    I've heard a rumor that Criterion has another Oshima box set in the works that will be comprised of the films he made for the Art Theatre Guild in the late '60s/early '70s. I really hope this is true and that it's something you can announce soon.

    Such a great director, I'm glad we are left with his fantastic body of work.

    I may have to check this guy out. I have heard of him in many times in my film studies. I know some people who just hate his work and tell me to stay away, but I will get my own opinion.

      Good for you, Daniel. I just re-watched Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence last night and was struck by just how powerful it remains after three decades.

    Hello, I am relatively new at the Criterion membership/store etc. So I wont feel bashful in stating the question that must be begging to be asked: Where-oh-Where is the Criterion Collection DVD treatment of: Cruel Story of Youth. Perhaps a difficult acquisition? But what a loss to the DVD Collector! Despite its availability @Hulu ... for me this is a huge WishList item for a Criterion release
