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!

Re: What movie will Criterion #500?

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.

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

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.
