    Anyone else think (and admittedly this is a long shot) the car heading towards the end of the bridge is David Cronenberg's Crash?

      I tried to convince myself that the splotch under the bridge was Spader and Unger inside a car wreck, but I think we're sadly both wishfully thinking

    Could the two suns mean that it's Comet(2015)?

      Nah, it's probably Star Wars.

    The gun girl might goes to Luc Moullet "A Girl is a gun" / Vadim "Barbarella"

    Like every year, this will be a damn fine year for criterion!

    The Clouds of Sils Maria, The Brood, Speedy (or some other Harold Lloyd film), Two Days One Night, The Before Trilogy, And The Ship Sails On, The Fisher King, One Eyed Jacks, A Bridge Too Far, Inside Llewyn Davis, and maybe House On Haunted Hill?

    The bridge itself may be, and IMO probably is referring to Don Siegel's The Lineup. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fp4.storage.canalblog.com%2F48%2F29%2F110219%2F46538980.jpg&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fshangols.canalblog.com%2Farchives%2F2009%2F11%2F19%2F15852744.html&h=447&w=800&tbnid=uxNc42wo3gBU2M%3A&zoom=1&docid=2SMDFCL1igxzzM&ei=cxSqVPmIMcS_ggTpy4OQBA&tbm=isch&ved=0CD0QMygWMBY&iact=rc&uact=3&dur=847&page=2&start=16&ndsp=17

    When I saw the guy running on the bridge from the crowd, the first thing I thought of was "Seven Chances."

    Gilliam's "The Fisher King" in the stream? Malick's "The New World" top right? Rydell's "The Rose" bottom right?

    I wish the clouds referenced Mikio Naruse's "Floating Clouds" But alas, Criterion seems intent on never released any more Naruse films, despite having near HD masters in their catalog.

      I too hope "Floating Clouds" is in the works. It is such a beautiful film. Maybe we'd also get Naruse's "Flowing" (1956) (the river as the clue?)…

      jmiller, I would give anything for a Naruse Eclipse set. Imagine a set that included films like Yearning, Flowing, Scattered Clouds, Repast, etc. I think it would be the greatest DVD set ever.

    Here's Ethan Hawke confirming (sort of) Before Sunrise Trilogy: http://collider.com/before-sunrise-trilogy-criterion-ethan-hawke/

    It would be fantastic if the big eye represented One-Eyed Jacks. But I think it's more likely a hint at a re-release/restoration of Peeping Tom, which would be equally fantastic. After all, the first shot of the film is of an extreme closeup of an eyeball.

    The eye could be Reflections in a Golden Eye, the girl on the bottom could be a nod to Green Inferno, the window makes me think of The Passenger and I do wish there was a man on that moon.

    Think I've got some of these. Guy with newspaper=A Master Builder; car on bridge=Two for the Road; guy running is Harold Lloyd as Speedy; hooded figures chasing=The Brood; since apparent razors are in hands of hooded figures, it is perhaps also referencing Don't Look Now, which is definitely coming next month; broken bridge COULD be referencing full version of Fellini's Toby Dammit, which was being restored a couple of years ago; guy with cat is obviously Inside Llewyn Davis; king in boat= The Fisher King; eye on line- JellyFish Eyes; rose=The Rose; house with moon=Moonrise Kingdom; two suns,one moon= Two Days,One Night; ship in distance about to go downhill in water= Watership Down; vendor equals Merchant of Four Seasons. That's all I've got for now...

      Knowing what did come out in 2015 I'm amazed at how accurate you were. I mean some I could see you getting (1 or 2 I got myself), but overall it's spooky. You have insider info I'm guessing :)

    First time posting but thought I'd give my two cents... or maybe I am just hoping these are the clues. I'm not sure if anyone has hypothesized the gang with the X's through their mouths. At first I started thinking of some Silent Era films that involved gangs. X over the mouth meaning no talking... whether that meant silent film or maybe a film about a gang where snitching = death. But then I was thinking... wait, I remember that X... I looked up The Bad Sleep Well cover and saw the X in one of the windows. http://www.criterion.com/films/765-the-bad-sleep-well I'm most likely dreaming, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

    Woman with knives and guns in high heels could be Angie Dickinson in "Dressed to Kill."

    Seems a bit silly to point out, but the river is obviously "The River" which was already announced.

    I'm also hoping that the clock means they took my suggestion of "Straight Time".
