Good call - I'd pick that up in a heartbeat!

I'll also add: George A. Romero (surprised no one mentioned him yet)

This is tough. I'd love to list guys like Linklater (Slacker, Tape, Waking Life, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset), Chris Nolan (Following, Memento, Insomnia), PTA (Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Punch Drunk Love, Magnolia), and so forth...but I already own every movie listed above. So, I really wouldn't like to see those boxed sets, because then I'd always be aggrivated that I didn't have a box for the movies.

So, I guess I'll go with the one guy who's work I like, but who's entire filmography (for whatever reason) I haven't yet added to my collection:

Alexander Payne:
-Sideways
-About Schmidt
-Citizen Ruth
-Election

It's reasonable, since there are only 4 titles...and I'd only be double-dipping on About Schmidt, so that'd be ideal.

I'll tell you what I'd really like: nice, sharp looking boxes available for discs that are already out there...available to be purchased for a reasonable price (say $5 or so). Liscensing and whatnot would be difficult (perhaps), but I guarantee you that if you picked the right groupings, they'd fly off the shelves. Hell, look at how fast those Best Buy Kill Bill boxes went (or how many people jumped at the chance to get the LOTR: EE boxes).

Oh, and...though not really a director, another boxed set that I wouldn't mind seeing (I already have all of these DVD's...but I'd gladly double-dip on SE's in a boxed set):

Charlie Kaufman:
-Adaptation
-Human Nature
-Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
-Eternal Sunshine
-Being John Malkovich

Kurosawa - like someone said, make all the CC's more cost friendly.
Kubrick - with the new Strangelove and a new 2001, and no snappers.
Mel Brooks? - a nice package with Spaceballs/Blazing Saddles/Young Frankenstein.

Any and all David Lynch works should be released in a set.

I would like to see a nice box made up for the John Carpenter Apocalypse Trilogy but since the three films are owned by different distributors, it prob will never happen.

Terrence Malick Box set
Badlands
Days of Heaven
Thin Red Line
All 3 could use an update with some nice extra features. An isolated score on each disk would be wonderful although companies semm to have stopped doing that.

I'd love to see a Carol Reed boxset; also, Subgeniusguy's suggestion for a Sam Peckinpah set is a really good one.

I think I mentioned this elsewhere, but I'd really like to see a set of the RKO films produced by Val Lewton in the 40's. In all, he produced 11 films between 1942-1946:

Cat People (1942)
I Walked With A Zombie (1943)
The Leopard Man (1943)
The Seventh Victim (1943)
The Ghost Ship (1943)
Curse Of The Cat People (1944)
Mademoiselle Fifi (1944)
Youth Runs Wild (1944)
The Body Snatcher (1945)
Isle Of The Dead (1945)
Bedlam (1946)

I know he didn't direct the films listed above, but the idea of being thematically linked by one man (and in the case of Lewton, an especially creative "hands on" approach to producing, including co-writing some of these pictures) is still a valid one. If George Feltenstein is reading this thread, here's an idea for you to pursue over at Warner Home Video.

Dr. Calimari, Warner already announced they are releasing a Val Lewton box set I am rather sure so that is some good news.


To go back to my suggestion I've been sitting around really wanting to see Trust again but don't want to purchase the VHS. I really found Trust to be one of the greatest films I had seen when I caught it on IFC awhile back. To get Trust on DVD with Flirt in a box set would be fantastic. Pipe dreams.... Trust really needs to be on DVD desparately.
