Kurosawa's "The Lower Depths" coming in August from Criterion!

Kurosawa's "The Lower Depths" coming in August from Criterion! Life is good.

http://www.criterionco.com/asp/coming_soon.asp

P.S. "Indiscretion of an American Wife" & "Terminal Station" are also listed for an August release as well. I focused on "The Lower Depths" because most of us already knew about "Indiscretion of an American Wife" & "Terminal Station." Happy viewing everyone! Criterion rocks.

Man, they need to come out with one big-ol' freakin' box set with all the new subs, etc... I know I would buy it in a heartbeat. As of right now I do not own a single one.

I always get bumbed out when a Kurosawas Criterion comes out because I know it will be a long wait before the next one. So after throne of blood I was expecting at least a 6 month wait. I'm stoked.

Honeslty, that could be one of the 5 best DVD covers I've ever seen.

Got to love a Ritchie commentary. I'm squirming already in anticipation of this one.
