I would shit myself with glee.
I'm fairly confident it's After Hours. While that would cross another title off my wishlist, I wouldn't be as elated as I would if Batman: The Animated Series were to receive a blu-ray release.
After Hours is one of my all-time favorite films. I have the poster on my wall. I interviewed Griffin Dunne; he signed two photos for me.
I would looooooove After Hours and Night of the Living Dead, although the latter seems more unlikely. I can relate to Dunne's character in After Hours so much (on a much more realistic level, though).
They've announced their April titles:
Woman of the Year
The Buena Vista Social Club
I'm honestly pretty perplexed by their choice of Woman of the Year. I watched it a year ago, and really wasn't impressed. It was a romantic comedy that wasn't romantic and wasn't funny. And it had a really nasty misogynistic message, which made it an unpleasant film to watch. Working women represent the death of the family, essentially. It's significant, I guess, because it was Hepburn and Tracy's first film together. But something like Adam's Rib would have been a much better choice, IMO.
Sounds like they have access to a much better transfer for Rumble Fish than Eureka did in 2012.
I might just pick up Rumble Fish, although I'm not crazy about that cover art.
Found this today on Blu-ray.com:
Nothing Criterion adds shocks me. I very heartily believe that they believe in representing ugly film history as much as cultured, progressive, etc.
Tampopo is a great little flick. May not pick it up, but for those with more to spend, I recommend it.
I hope Stalker really is on the way. I consider Tarkovsky one of the greatest directors, and the DVD doesn't do him justice.
Today is a good day.
Have you seen it? I love classic Hollywood films. They represent the times in which they were made, and you have to expect a certain level of antiquated ideas. I'm aware of that. But to me, this felt like it was on another level.
You mean, like How to Murder Your Wife? (Can't find a trailer to link to.) (Jack Lemmon.)
No, I haven't seen it.
I don't know, I've never seen that. It really just made her out to be a selfish bitch for wanting to have a job. Every time she did something for her job, or went to work, there would be a scene of him, all mopey and depressed, eating dinner alone or something. In the end
she gives up her job and makes him breakfast in bed, and all of a sudden their marriage is happy again.
I didn't like it. It might have been easier to overlook if it had just been a subplot, but it's the major theme of the film. Not knocking Hepburn or Tracy at all, though - I love them both.
Well... If it's good enough for Beethoven.
(Wait: in that movie, she didn't want to work either. Nevermind.)
Told ya. Mysterious Object at Noon
AND, just to add insult to everyone hoping that was After Hours, Mysterious Object is part of the "Martin Scorsese International" collection
