Maybe the same thing as NF's designation of Nathalie Granger as 'very long wait', more wishful thinking than reflecting their actual status?

But don't forget this is a 2-disc release, and to date there's no catalog entry yet for the supplements disc; can you please hang up a Request button for that 2nd disc so we can start forming a priority queue for it?

Hmm... Mishima is partly fixed now -- the orange bar has been replaced by the release date message -- but still nothing for the Supplements disc.

Thanks - Mishima is now broken out into two discs. Sorry for delay.

Also, we did order that African Queen, and according to Weezy it looks pretty good so sounds like we're gonna add it here for rent shortly. Cross yer fingers and thanks for the recommendation of that one.

Thank you! I've queued up the Mishima bonus disc now. Ooh -- I see you've already posted African Queen, too. That's great!

Yep! Here's The African Queen, for anyone who wants to queue it up. I can't imagine too many other rental outfits offer that one. Sounds like it's more than adequate, though it would be nice to see an R1 release for that classic film sometime.

Underdog has posted at the Criterion thread a new press release from Criterion, listing the following titles to be issued in the next few months:

The Earrings of Madame de . . . (Ophuls)
La ronde (Ophuls)
Le plaisir (Ophuls)

An Autumn Afternoon (Ozu)

Shadows in Paradise (Kaurismaki 1986)
Ariel (Kaurismaki 1988)
The Match Factory Girl (Kaurismaki 1990)

Grand Illusion (Renoir)
Beauty and the Beast (Cocteau)
Rashomon (Kurosawa)
Wild Strawberries (Bergman)
Knife in the Water (Polanski)
Lord of the Flies (Brook)

The last six of these titles have already been available from Criterion; I'm not sure whether these might be new editions, or simply a reissue in a boxed set.

I'm glad to be of help. And kudos to GC for having the two Marker titles - "Cat" and "Bolshevik" - in the catalog so fast. That is first-rate customer service!

If GC can only get one King documentary for now, it would have to be "Warrendale." According to some sources, it prompted Jean Renoir to call it the work of a great artist and the most remarkable documentary he's ever seen.

The second would have to be "A Married Couple" which seems to be the second most mentioned King documentary.

Third would be "Dying at Grace."

Fourth would be "Come On Children" for supposedly being one of King's own favorites.

After those, I think MoMA's King retrospective notes would be a great reference for which ones to add (personally they all sound as amazing as Wiseman's documentaries). Link -

I see, thanks.

As far as I can tell, Roy Boulting's Thunder Rock has never been issued on DVD. Amazon is frequently the best place to check for things like this, since many dealers list imports and out-of-print items there.

Can't wait to see that one! But it's only out in a Region 3 (Asia) Dvd at the moment. It's been playing theatrically in a few select US cities, and I am SURE it will come to disc here within the year. But we'll keep our eyes peeled for an all-region release, too. So far, no luck.

I wonder how it is that of the 3-disc Jean Renoir Collection, disc 3 is green, disc 2 is yellow, but disc 1 is red?

The whole set is roughly the price of most new single discs -- is there any chance GC might pick up another copy or two, to replenish whatever happened to your disc 1's?

(I think I'll also post this request over in the Availability=Red thread.)

By the way, we just got in the Korean import version of Europa, (Zentropa is title for the US Release) from scanning through the copy looks pretty good but let me know if the version was what you were expecting.

Thanks!

Oh goodie!! Thank you!

Yeah, the Korean release of von Trier. My experience with Korean copies has been very good, with censorship being the only potential question. There's nothing in IMDb's plot keywords to suggest T&A or sex, so it should be fine. They (and you) give the timing as 112 minutes, but I'll be curious to see what the timing actually comes to after the PAL-to-NTSC conversion. BTW you might want to correct the Walt Disney Video reference for this copy.

After nearly a month (I'm kinda slow sometimes) it finally occurs to me that exactly like the previous situation with Mishima, Criterion's Vampyr will be released on two discs and thus needs two separate rental request buttons for queuing up, please.

Thanks :-)

(Unless of course you finally yield to the thousands of requests and pleas from members to count things like this as single rentals, and ship out both discs simultaneously -- hint, hint.)

Criterion has the three Max Ophuls films scheduled for 9/16 release, and Kaurismaki's 'Proletariat Trilogy' and Ozu's Autumn Afternoon for 9/23 release.

I'm having a fainting attack waiting for those Ophuls, in particular.
