    I too would love to see Etorri Scola’s “La Nuit de Varennes”. It is not available anywhere (I've looked.) I joined Criterion in hopes it will be transferred to DVD soon. It is an incredibly well done film with great performances from the many actors in the film.

    I am thrilled that a company like Criterion exists today. I am a baby boomer and miss lots of teh films you have here. I have acquired quite a collection thanks to your company and enjoy all of teh films that are not seen or available anywhere else. Clear, affordable, educational - thats what your company Criterion is all about to me. I receive your emails and a few reputable stores carry or will special order your films for me. You have many classics here that I thought were long gone and hard to find. Thanbk you Thank you Thank you Your films are time and dollars well spent at my home.

    Please consider adding a movie called "The Grey Fox" to your collection. Richard Farnsworth is outstanding is this film, but unfortunately it is only available on VHS. This movie is a real gem!

      Add my vote for this one-it's a shame that nobody has found a way to get this to DVD! Please, I beg you! The two copies of the VHS tapes of The Grey Fox I own will eventually give out-I'd love to be able to continue to enjoy it on DVD.

    Love the collection but I have to admit that the lack of a single Marlon Brando film is troublesome. Arguably the greatest actor ever and yet no official criterion release of any of his movies. Like others have already suggested, ow about One-eyed Jacks? I think it would fit right in with the standards the collection tries to uphold. As well, how about Viva Zapata? I also second the sentiment that more Welles is always welcome. Lastly, something a bit off the wall, how about some Laurel and Hardy??

    Please, bring out Gold of Naples. This magnificent film must be restored.

    It would be wonderful if you folks could apply your special magic to Welles's Chimes at Midnight, in particular the sound quality, which is so uneven.

    Is there any chance you might bring out a dvd of Claude Lelouch's Les Miserables, with Jean-paul Belmondo?

      Great film. I would love to be able to have my family see this. It certainly deserves a wider anglophone audience.

      I absolutely second the nomination. I have been regularly searching for a good DVD copy of this film. Therehas never been one made with Englisg sub-tiles. And it's a big movie on the visual side and would really benefit from Criterion's treatment. I can only assume that there are legal problems.i

    LA NUIT DE VARENNES - one of the great European films of the past fifty years. Astonishing that it's never had a DVD release.

    "City of Sadness," a great film by the Taiwanese master, Hou Hsiao-hsien. "Red Sorghum," by Zhang Yimou. How can you have nothing of this great director's? "La Nuit de Varennes." Brilliant from start to finish, brilliantly acted by a host of great actors.

    It would be wonderful if more films could be accessed via iTunes! Being in Canada, Hulu is not an option. ... Best wishes in 2015 and thank you for your great work.
