About a week ago Warner Brothers discontinued a number of Archive releases that generated some speculation that they may have been licensed to Criterion including:

Dreams (Akira Kurosawa)
Blow Up (Michelangelo Antonioni)
The Breaking Point (Michael Curtiz)
Barcelona (Whit Stillman)

The OOP list this week has a few more Warner titles that seem like they may go to Criterion:

Magnificent Ambersons (Orson Welles)
The Asphalt Jungle (John Huston)
A Face in the Crowd (Elia Kazan)
Klute (Alan Pakula)
Day for Night (Francois Truffaut)
Before Sunset (Richard Linklater)
Cat People (Jacques Tourneur) Both the individual Cat People and the Val Lewton box are officially discontinued this week.
Before Sunrise (Richard Linklater)

Noiradelic, yes, I remember that. The new thing is Roger Deakins has been added to the conversation. Perhaps with his push Criterion may reconsider

Oh, I see the old article's referenced in the IndieWire one.

Deakins is specifically talking about the longer cut; that might not come out even if Criterion releases the theatrical cut.

If Criterion really passed on the film because of its significance, that would be a really odd decision.

I'd think the availability of a longer cut would be an inducement for Criterion if anything, e.g. It's a Mad 4x World.

I've been wanting to see the longer cut for years. This would be a dream come true for me. Although, I thought the film was originally 5-6 hours. Maybe that was just a work print though.
