Fellini's Casanova needs a region 1 release period.
So does I Clowns

And Some of Paul Verhoeven's early movies like Turkish Delight and Spetters.

Magnificent Ambersons
Wings
Wuthering Heights
Chaplin collection. Set and single titles would be ideal!
I'm sure there are others but these are the ones I can think of off hand.

KMD is probably happening which is why I didn't mention it, but yeah, I agree. And yes, I'd LOVE to see a Criterion Blue Velvet.

I second Fellini's Casanova and am happy someone else agrees! It needs the Blu-ray treatment. Clowns is one of the few Fellini films I haven't seen, but I would also snatch that up on day one.

Some pretty good choices there, too bad 99% of those will never even be considered for CC treatment

ummm...the 4-disc Extended Editions for all 3 are pretty packed, considering they are 4 discs and all. don't think Criterion or any other company could even find something, anywhere that wasn't covered in those releases.

anchor bay released this and it's very good- the booklet of the original release rivals criterion collection booklets. I just don't see the point of criterion redoing it when there's so many movies out there that didn't get anywhere near the same treatment.

It looks to me like you might have to take your sarcasm detector in for a tune up....
