I would be all over 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T, hope that one pans out!

According to AV Maniacs, quoting Jim Clatterbaugh of Monsters from the Vault, regarding Island of Lost Souls:
Greg Mank has recorded the audio commentary and there will be a talking heads documentary also. I expect there will be a formal announcement soon.
I wasn't able to find the Clatterbaugh quote on Monsters from the Vault's webpage though.

re: The Criterion Collection 4K/Blu-ray Discussion and Release Thread

I'm curious to see what the Kuroneko extras are - the MoC disc was bare-bones. Also in for Island and possibly Four Feathers. I still haven't gotten around to watching my Mr. Bongo disc of Identification, and I already have three Kaurismaki box sets, so I probably don't need a 4th, especially as the Leningrad Cowboys material doesn't particularly interest me.

I'm thrilled and excited by the announcement for Masaki Kobayahi's Harakiri! That will be a definite purchase.

Whatever happened to [i]Y Tu Mama Tambien[i]?
Is that still on Criterion's upcoming titles list?
