    Leaud is one of the most iconic actors in film history. Finally getting the recognition and respect he deserved.

    I'm happy to read that Jean-Paul Léaud will be honored tonight at Cannes. He is a special actor and a unique presence in film. He's a legend,really. That's a great gallery of pics; I would have included one from Last Tango In Paris.My most recent viewing of Last Tango was a year or two ago;and I got the biggest kick out of his performance.

    Please forgive me Criterion fans! Its Jean-Pierre,I know. So sorry, I won't offer any excuses(but it has been a long night).

    A Doinel box set upgrade would be great.

    When so many film masterpieces remain unrestored and unavailable on DVD/Blu Ray - why prioritize upgrades of available & previously restored films?

      because they are readily available and help fund those films you speak of that don't have a release yet.

    Your comments sound like something I would say.I totally agree.There is so many overlooked and unknown "masterpieces" out there.I googled "what are the 1000 greatest movies of all time".When I started going through the list,and then seeing if they were available on Amazon,I was stunned by how many are out of print.You literally cannot buy some of them because there is nothing to buy.There were some that were available only on VCR!Criterion could stay busy for a hundred years just doing that list.You are so right.

    I fell in love with "my child" in the 60's. How great to have followed his idiosyncratic style through many directors. Seeing him all grown up & well-aged for Kaurismaki was wonderful. Great chioce, Mr. K. (But why a renouncer?)
