That's great news, and I like they're giving fans the opportunity to vote, but I'm disappointed by the choices we're given.

Should be an "All of the Above" option, but I went with Down by Law...I want me some Blu Jarmusch.

Whaaaat! Au Revoir Les Enfants, Picnic at Hanging Rock, and Kwaidan are excellent films. Frankly, I'm having a hard time deciding between those three in particular.

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.

Agreed. Of the movies listed I've only seen Picnic at Hanging Rock and I didn't care for it. I checked the other titles out at IMDb and none of them appeal to me either.

Criterion tend to have a rather diverse and 'arty' catalogue so this is not unusual.

I voted for Kwaidan and hope that they get it right this time.

I go for "All of the Above" as well.

I single out "Au Revoir les Enfants" only because it should be seen by everyone for the lessons imparted by a great work of art.

And thank God for that!!!!!

Let's hope for the Powell/Pressburger technicolor masterpieces "The Red Shoes," "Black Narcissus," and "Offenbach's 'The Tales of Hoffmann.'" Incidentally, all three (I believe) were photographed brilliantly by the late Jack Cardiff who passed away a few days ago at 94 and who has provided many pertinent contributions to Criterion commentary tracks.

But I'll settle for any of the planned releases. Just don't know which the hell to vote for!!!

Hmmm. Tough choice for me between Au Revoir Les Enfants & Kwaidan but I voted for the latter.
