It would have been better if they just blu-rayed Happiness since it has had crappy DVD versions.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

plus eclipse sets are barebones and normally have sub-par transfers...

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

criterion looks sharper based on screenshots than the SC, but SC seems to have the right color scheme.

It's due to their relationship with IFC that they're releasing it. Personally, I agree that I'd rather they release Happiness if they were to release a Solondz film (and Welcome To The Dollhouse, while their at it). It's especially weird since Wartime is it's sequel...

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Not one of Solondz films has a decent release, so this will be a revelation, I'm sure.

^Do you have a link to where you found that picture? I'd like to see a bigger pic, because I can't work out what that is near the dog's ass.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

awesomeness, I will be all over this. It would make a great pairing with a re-release of The Killers set. Or Night in the City or Thieves Highway

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I'm very happy about the Solondz release. Would I have preferred another title? Hell, I want a CC box set of ALL his films, but I'll take what they give me. Maybe this can start a relationship with him and lead to more of his titles getting the proper treatment.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I must have missed the White Material announcement, I'm a huge Claire Denis fan, so this is welcomed news, and soon too.

I'd kill for A Woman Under the Influence, The Killing of a Chinese Bookie or some Fassbinder on blu-ray....or a Badlands announcement. I don't buy very many films anymore...but these things could get me excited for home media again.

Kiss Me Deadly, outstanding! I'm extremely underwhelmed though with the rest of June's titles, but that's OK cause May is killer (buying them all but Sweetie).

That would be amazing. One of my absolute favorite movies - top 10 material.
