May Criterion Newsletter Hint

After a google search I learned that 'Slam Your Doors in Golden Silence' references Jacque Tati's Playtime. Are there other hints here or does the first part reference Playtime as well?

I Remember = probable Amarcord re-release
There is talk on the criterionforum boards that it is going out of print.

Bees = likely The Spirit of the Beehive
It is known to be forthcoming.

The last part is definitely referencing Playtime.

It probably refers to The Swarm with Michael Caine. Classic.

Are the dogs indicative of aything? The images Criterion uses in these teasers are usually related in some way to coming titles.
