Criterion Fantasies

What movies do you wish to see released on
CRITERION?



"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."



The Bobby Fischer of movie criticism
The Room and Plan 9 from Outer Space. I'm sick of sh*t pretentious films getting criterions. These two really need one instead.



Fantastic Planet, for one.
If you can play region B, Masters of Cinema(our version of Criterion more or less) released Fantastic Planet on blu-ray, it's a fabulous release.




Super mega extreme bump turbo edition.

I was just thinking abut this, and wanted to make a list. Sue me.


Adaptation- There's no special features on the standard release. This is not acceptable.
L'enfant-There's already a lot of Dardenne in the collection, and this is my favorite of them all, so why not?
The Tree of Life-Another filmmaker who already has a ton in the collection. But, there's room for more. Also has a disappointing array of features on the standard release.
A Serious Man-One of the Coen's most under appreciated films. Two releases is not enough for these guys.
Spring Breakers- I would love some Korine in the collection.
The Virgin Suicides- There's no proper blu ray release here in the U.S, so this would be lovely.
After Hours-See above.
Jackie Brown-They could do so much with a Tarantino release. I just want a commentary track for once!
Arsenic and Old Lace-Again, a great movie without a blu ray release. Plus, this collection needs more Capra.
Come and See-Probably my most desired. A movie this good demands to get the Criterion treatment. No U.S blu ray release as of now. What a shame.

In addition, since I made my pre-order for the Criterion Blu-Ray for John Water's Multiple Maniacs, I would love to see Pink Flamingos in the Criterion Collection.
I'd like Cry Baby, but that's a much bigger film, and it'd be harder to get the rights, i'm sure. Fingers crossed, though!

Is multiple Maniacs worth seeing? Every time I even look at the Pink Flamingo's cover I just feel bad inside for some reason
