What movie will Criterion #500?
 
Criterion's latest announcement included Last Days of Disco at #485 We may still be a few months off before #500 So, any guesses? Think Criterion will make a big deal out of it or treat it like just another release?

For the record:

#1 Grand Illusion
#100 Beastie Boys Video Anthology
#200 The Honeymoon Killers
#300 The Life Aquatic
#400 Stranger Than Paradise

Just another release.
I could tell you what I wish it would be, but there is no way I could fathom a guess as to what it actually will be.

Here's my completely arbitrary, uneducated guess: Hausu.

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/NN0HVJ5tkIM&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/NN0HVJ5tkIM&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

We're due for an oddball cult title!

Same here. You would think the artwork would be up by now.

I've think we can narrow it down to one of these five:

#1 Grand Illusion --> #500 Lord of Illusions
#100 Beastie Boys Video Anthology --> #500 Oakridge Boys Video Anthology
#200 The Honeymoon Killers --> #500 Haunted Honeymoon
#300 The Life Aquatic --> #500 Aquaman (Pilot)
#400 Stranger Than Paradise --> #500 Stranger Than Fiction

Also, the Cassavetes box set was #250

I would like #500 to be the Eisenstein silent film set that was first mentioned quite a long time ago.

Good Burger will always be Criterion #0 in my heart.

I actually would like to see a Criterion edition of Stranger than Fiction.

even though i loved the movie, i don't really think of it as Criterion-worthy. maybe it's just me.

then again, they did put out such mediocrity as Armageddon, The Rock, The Life Aquatic, and The Ice Storm

The Thin Red Line - director's cut. 3 discs.

If it wasn't listed here as an idea, I would never have thought of it. But I enjoyed it as much as Truman Show.

The Life Aquatic belongs in the Criterion Collection, IMHO.
