Rumour has it that it could be Bresson's Pickpocket

Anyway, Ran is one i'll certainly be picking up

I love the Ran cover, but the cover for Box Art Coming Soon is pretty drab. That's one of my favorite movies, and I wish they had used the original poster art for the cover.

Great specs on Ran, decent cover art. Personally, I hope the missing title is Au Revoir Les Enfants, as Criterion did say it would be out in 2005 (of course, Tales of Hoffman is a perfect example of how things can get delayed...).

No doubt.. Some of my catalogues from 2000/2001 list Tales of Hoffman as "Coming Soon"

I'm hoping #314 is Bunuel's The Milky Way (which Jon Mulvaney told me should be out by the end of the year)...

I don't expect it to be. Au Revoir Les Enfants was originally given spine #293, and it had this number for quite some time on Criterion's website before it was replaced by The Flowers of St. Francis. So I think that if Au Revoir Les Enfants was coming out anytime soon, they would have just left it with spine #293.

Ugetsu and Tales of Hoffmann are now appearing on Criterion's site:

no Ran yet, or mystery spine #314

Spine 314 is apparently Pickpocket (scroll down for specs):

Can't say I'm not disappointed about Au Revoir Les Enfants, but you are likely correct about the spine number issue, garmonbozia.

Those covers are very nice. Nice to see Criterion update their website very quickly. Can't believe they're up to #317 when the Life Aquatic seems like it is still fairly new.

Good news for me, bad news for my wallet. I'm happy to get Ran and Ugetsu but I wish Criterion would slow down on some of the Japanese releases and release more movies from other countries than France, Japan, and England. I'd love to seen some Indian, Mexican, Iranian films in the collection.

Anyone interested in WB R2/PAL 2-disc mint copy of "RAN" (w/Chris Marker's documentary on disc 2)? It's a frickin' great release, better than all the rest... except almost certainly Criterion's...

I hope they speed up on the Mizoguchi releases. His work has certainly been neglected on DVD.
