Any chance ELEMENT OF CRIME is represented in that teaser? I can't tell.
I don't recall Hulot being in a box in one of his movies...
Scanners is obvious. Is that deer hiding "Deer Hunter?" That would be nice. What about the girl with her hair covered in the picnic = Ringu (1998) maybe? I would love the red sun to be "Red Sun." One of my favorite Bronson and Mifune films. One of the girls in the water could be the girl in the radiator from "Eraserhead."
Picnic at Hanging Rock, finally! I just hope if it does have the newer DC cut, it'll at least also still have the superior theatrical cut.
I was hoping to see a Tiger Shark in the ocean which would indicate The Life Aquatic, however I don't think it will see a 2014 release thanks to Fantastic Mr. Fox.
i'd noticed both of those myself. wasn't sure if it was bit too on-the-nose. and Ringu seems like an odd choice for criterion. i mean, after all the hype, it really wasn't all that big of a deal.
Yea, Ringu is probably a reach there, but that picture is the first thing I thought of.
If you would call being responsible for the resurgence of J-Horror not a big deal. A trend that permeated into so much of what we see today in modern horror. I think it goes down as pretty significant film.
Yes, those were my thoughts. Horror turned on a dime once Ringu hit. Today the most profitable horror has over 50% women attendance. That happened because of The Ring. Also Universal last had the rights but the discs seem to be off the shelves now. Universal has been licensing out to Criterion so if they have them Criterion could option them. If they don't have them Criterion could snatch them up free and clear. Either way it's a possibility, more of a possibility than I initially thought. Criterion does have plenty of classic J-Horror.
However I still doubt it's coming. Though a Ringu/Rasen package would seem rather apt for Criterion; they've often done similar releases.
well, i meant that the film itself wasn't that big of a deal. in that it was just an ok film with a huge amount of hype.
you're right, it did influence horror cinema quite a bit afterwards, and that does fall under Criterion's mandate of "important classic and contemporary films", i suppose.
it was the first thing i thought of when i saw the picture too. so who knows, maybe it will be coming.
Excellent! That really is the only cover that could possibly represent Eraserhead.
yeah, I'm glad Criterion didn't try and over think this one and left it be. Good stuff.
ERASERHEAD, finally! :banana: :banana: :banana: I'm glad that I never went ahead and got a Blu-ray import now!

It looks like there will be a replacement program for Eraserhead.
Customers that ordered the film directly from Criterion are apparently receiving the following email:
^^ I emailed them earlier, and received a prompt professional reply back.
They list an address to mail the defective disc back to, and state that the corrected disc will be mailed out within a couple of weeks.
They'll also send you a $10 gift certificate code valid for a future purchase off the Criterion website for the inconvenience.
They're handling the issue very professionally... compared to some studios!
