I'll be blind buying this.



It's a tale about my people. After 25 (or so) years, it's getting the HD treatment it deserves.



Great way for Criterion to start off 2009!

I guess we can also expect these for Q1 of 2009:
The 400 Blows
Gimme Shelter
The Complete Monterey Pop
Contempt
Walkabout
For All Mankind
The Wages of Fear

Happy to see Criterion releases coming, but i have absolutely no clue on this title.

Would love to see their classic titles like:
The Last Emperor
Robocop
Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
The Fisher King
Citizen Kane
Spinal Tap

The titles in bold are the title Criterion no longer has the rights to, so you won't see Criterion release these.

Hmmm. Why? I recall the list from a few (six?) months ago but they be Q2 or Q3 or Q4 or some may fall off the list.

Watched the again recently and enjoyed/still enjoy this one a lot. Tragic tale of two illegal immigrants won't be for everyone but is worth at least a rental.
