Agreed, instead we get a Moore documentary?!

I heard Female Trouble is good but never seen it.

It's obvious Kino is doing a better job with film noir than Criterion.

And ClassicFlix, too! This is a real yawner of a month for Criterion.

It's a yawner of a year for Criterion so far for me. I mean, 6 months in and the only movie released or being released this year I had any interest in was Night of the Living Dead.

Usually there's multiple titles I want released in the first half.

No shit. I usually buy around 5+ every year from Criterion. Seems like recent years they've been focusing on particular films.

Hmmmm, upon thinking about it, it could also be that my backlog is nearly done. I have no idea when every movie was released when, but last year I picked up the following:

Ace in the Hole
Cat People
Rebecca
They Live by Night
Asphalt Jungle
Brazil
The Lodger
Les Diabolique
Carnival of Souls
Blood Simple
House
Mildred Pierce

The only one we haven't watched yet is Cat People.

I wasn't a fan of Brazil, but then, Terry Gilliam just doesn't seem to be for me. Same goes for Carnival of Souls, which I think is more great for its historic value than production ones.

The bonus movie that came with Lodger was down right dreadful. I can't believe that was a Hitchcock film.

All of the others ranged from really good to fucking fantastic! I think Ace in the Hole might be my favorite of those.

I haven't seen Carnival and Cat People, YET.

I really enjoyed Brazil. I guess you either like or dislike Gilliam. I like all his stuff.
