You remember correctly. I would have one, as well, were it region-free.

Well that sucks. Icon released Loaded recently and that was locked also. Icon was usually pretty reliable for being region-free.

Kinda surprised to see that Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai Du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles or The Last Days Of Disco aren't getting the Blu treatment. Oh well, I'm interested in both of these...

Very disappointed in no Last Days of Disco release. *sigh

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays

I'll definitely get Playtime, as that was shot in 70mm and should look amazing on Blu-ray.

Tati is fantastic, but I've never seen Playtime. Especially considering the 70mm, I may have to blind-buy that one!

Sheesh, and you gave another forum member grief for being a Polanski fan and never having seen Repulsion.

Hell yes, thank you Criterion for another chance with Kurosawa after that Ran incident.

What's the latest on Ran? I thought they were trying to get that resolved.

I wouldn't give up hope entirely. I've kept my DVD copy of Ran unopened, just in case.
