If... (out 6/19/07)

If... is one of my favorite movies that I watched in the early '90s throughout college. Thank goodness Criterion is taking care of releasing it... finally.

Finally indeed

If... would definitely have made my next "DVD MIA" list if there weren't already plans for it. You can queue it up now on GreenCine. Brilliant, disturbing film.

Jodorowski's masterpiece

El Topo.

Soderbergh's Kafka, though much loved, is a distant second. From Beyond is number three with a bullet.

My last few VHS purchases rank somewhere on the list:


  • Sundown: the Vampire in Retreat
  • Lunatics: a Love Story
  • Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammo
  • Waxwork II: Lost in Time

El Topo

You mean the El Topo that is finally coming out to DVD and we'll have here on May 1? :-) Three of Jodorowsky's lost masterpieces are coming out thanks to Anchor Bay, either as a set or individually. A cause for rejoicing.

Bava's wild ride

A few years ago a re-tooled version of Mario Bava's "Rabid Dogs" was popping up in festivals with the title "Kidnapped". Wonder if that will ever make it to DVD?

Si, grazie.

Si, it was just released. We'll get this one. Just for you.

Kidnapped.

 

Ciao!

hark wilder

i don't know if these two have popped up on a list yet, but i'd love to see billy wilder's "ace in the hole" again or a decent copy of tsui hark's early "butterfly murders". however, with charles burnett's "killer of sheep" and fassbinder's "berlin alexanderplatz" on the way, there's still plenty to be excited about...

Here are a 'few'...

Brewster McCloud (Altman) ... They Live By Night (Dassin) ... Man Facing Southeast (Subiela) ... Sonny Boy (Carroll) ... May Fools (Malle) ... King of the Hill (Soderbergh) ... Moonlighting (Skolimowski) ... Kiss of the Spider Woman (Babenco) ... Cold Turkey (Lear) ... The Grey Fox (Borsos) ... The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez (Young) ... Whistle Down the Wind (Forbes) ... Fraulein Doktor (Lattuada) ... Johnny Eager (LeRoy) ... Despair (Fassbinder) ... Urgh! A Music War (Burbidge) ... and an excellent documentary about shell-shocked veterans by John Huston; "Let There Be Light", which was pulled from circulation by the US government for over 30 years cause it made war look bad (gee...!)

Great list

Urgh! I've been waiting for "Urgh" for years, ever since seeing it on USA cable when I was an impressionable teen. Awesome music. I've heard rumors about Brewster McCloud coming to disc but can't confirm. The Grey Fox is already on my own "MIA DVD" list/essay coming here.

Anway - Good stuff. There's a ton of 'em really.

A more comprehensive list

of titles we'd like to see on DVD but which are currently MIA, is up here. And will be constantly updated (with sequels!)
