My guess is The Saddest Music in the World.

Brand Upon the Brain seems the most likely to me given that it is an homage to silent films.

If it is Brand Upon the Brain, it sets up the opportunity for some interesting alternative audio tracks, with some of the celebs who have provided narrations.

I'd be just as interested though in a collection of Maddin's shorts ala "by Brakage".

Amen to that, but I feel chris_sc77 may be right about the long out of print Careful with "silence" being the keyword in the clue.

Comic book artist Sean Phillips has already posted his cover art for Blast of Silence on his blog:

Cool, so they're including a comic book adaptation with the DVD.

Gotta love Criterion!

DVD Aficionado lists Brand Upon the Brain as a "Not Announced" Criterion title, so that's probably it.

From the DVDBeaver newsletter:

"On Criterionís unofficial slate are the quintessential Noir Cry Of The City (1948), Wes Andersonís first effort, Bottle Rocket, Dillinger Is Dead (Marco Ferreri), Stephen Frearsí The Hit, Nicolas Roegís fun Insignificance, David Bowie in Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence, Louis Malleís My Dinner With Andre, Antonioniís La Notte, John Hustonís Wise Blood, Lars Von Trierís Zentropa, and Sam Fullerís much anticipated White Dog."

Other then Cry of the City and Dillinger is Dead, we already knew all of those would be Criterion titles at some point.

Masters of Cinema just released a beautiful edition of La Notte but with no extras. Criterion would have to do an amazing job with the transfer to top it.

Hmm...Gary Tooze posts on criterionforum.org and that blurb looks like it was just culled from the forthcoming list there. Didn't he get a bunch of slack for announcing Shanghai Express as a 2008 title, as well as listing Kurosawa and Lubitsch titles that had already been solicited?

'WISEBLOOD' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Plus; can't wait to finally throw out my old betamax of 'Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence'!

Haven't seen 'Insignificance' since it was in theatres. I vaguely remember liking it, though not as much as 'Track 29' - I gotta think that would be a better choice.


Still no news of Criterion issuing Bly-Rays, though, huh? Bummer.
