Tanin no kao (1966) The Face of Another ...anytime soon?

I caught this a few months ago on TCM and would like to know if there are any good releases worthy of purchase or perhaps one in the works? Thanks for any information.

The R2 Masters of Cinema version is great. Currently $15.95 shipped from CD-WOW using the Iowa link.

That's a good price (it's £9.97 at amazon.co.uk).

Don't hesitate to get the MoC release if you need an excellent version of this film ASAP (they've also released some other Teshigahara titles). However, though officially unconfirmed and without a release date, Criterion is supposedly working on this film and others (possibly boxset?). This is the info from the "Forthcoming Criterion Release" thread at criterionforum.org where it's listed as a "Distinct Possibility" http://www.criterionforum.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=23:
Hiroshi Teshigahara - ANTONIO GAUDI (1984, Teshigahara), THE FACE OF ANOTHER (1966, Teshigahara), PITFALL (1962, Teshigahara), has been playing in a new print from Janus Films. WOMAN OF THE DUNES (1964, Teshigahara) - Milestone are saying that Criterion will release it. Also in new 35mm print. UPDATE: Donald Richie said there is a Teshigahara/Abe boxset in the works including Woman of the Dunes, The Face of Another, & The Pitfall. He mentioned this at an appearance at Yale.

I need to get that Gaudi doc, not to mention Womam of the Dunes. I already have both MOC discs and enjoy them both.
