They haven't posted it. They have just showed the pic and on Twitter said they are just now finishing up the editing.

I find it odd that there has only been one possible hint for the new release schedule. Are they trying to surprise us?

Not many people could go in there, see Oshima's Outlaw Sixties, and say "this reminds me of the time I was taking a leak next to Nagisa."

We obviously know about the Frampton hint, but I'm still holding out hope that the mention and video posting of the Dziga Vertov Group might be a hint. I know they could be marketing for the Gorin Eclipse, though Criterion in no way included Gorin's name (just Godard and the Dziga Vertov Group), so it's odd that they posted the Schick after-shave Commercial.

It's not really that odd at all. They post curios like that all of the time without there being any higher purpose.

We still have 2 Newsletter clues (not counting the New Years one) that hasn't been announced to add to the hints...

From the Twitter page:
In the last minute, we've gotten requests for Bergman's PERSONA, Żuławski's POSSESSION and... GOOD BURGER.
They wouldn't mention it if it wasn't true. I'm looking forward to the critical essays explaining why Good Burger is a masterpiece of modern cinema.

Did they not know the filmmaker of Good Burger, they mentioned the other 2.

"The "Mondo Burger" is a pop-literate evocation of late capitalism's ruthless androcracy. It finds a knismestic joy in the the working class and small enterprise, whereas There Will Be Blood only reinforces liberal nihilism. At best, it attains a masterful sense of allegory not seen since Spielberg's Always."

The Armond imitations are getting really good around here. So I'm the only fan, huh?

"Criterion is releasing Good Burger" is an admittedly esoteric internet meme that's been around for a couple years, they're just cheekily acknowledging... though it is Paramount

Abe Vigoda deserves a place in the collection.

This joke has been reiterated ad infinitum on DVDTalk for a decade.

David Stratton has already topped that.

"Film buffs are shameless." Indeed.

If it had been Badlands, traffic for requests on that page would've decreased 79%

Could it be Yang's A BRIGHTER SUMMER DAY? It would make up for Badlands!

EDIT: No, that's just google images mismatching names...
