Lucrecia Martel in the closet

I wonder what she's there for. Zama and Headless Woman are Strand's, Holy Girl was apparently released on DVD by "HBO Studios"... so most likely a special feature, I guess?

Suddenly I'm hoping that Criterion has got hold of Nine Queens.

Or she was in town and they invited her by. They seem to do that with various celebs from time to time.

It is nice to see Threads getting more mentions recently, and it reminds me that ITV tried to do its own sci-fi spin on the apocalypse happening in Sheffield with The Last Train back in 1999, though its more related to something like the 1970s Survivors series (years before the BBC remade Survivors in 2008). I remember a girl I went to college with in Sheffield when we had all had a post college meet up gleefully pointed out a couple of notable landmarks that somehow survived the bomb, as if even a nuclear attack could not destroy them!

Hans Zimmer says not likely. "The deal structure on those songs was so complicated and so expensive, and it would cost so much money in rights to put it out.”

I'm going to guess that it could mean a Criterion edition of Terms of Endearment.

I would be very surprised if it was anything other than Terms of Endearment, especially with the Best Picture kick that they’ve been on. Though, another Albert Brooks release with an interview with JLB would be great.

I guess it could be Modern Romance now that you mention it

Maybe double bill it with The Evening Star!

Criterion has been releasing most of their Sony title in both the US and UK, so the Indicator release leads me to believe that Modern Romance has been licensed to someone else in the US (TT or Mill Creek or Shout Factory.)

Criterion posted on their Facebook page yesterday that they have "400+" films on iTunes for 9.99 until January 2nd.. Tried to find a Criterion digital or Criterion on iTunes thread, couldn't, so just sharing here. It could make some sense given Apple's cash and move into streaming and (what sounds like very uninspired) original content for them to become a host to high-quality digital copies of most/all of Criterion's releases..

Richard E. Grant in the closet.

Hopefully in the offices doing something for new editions of Withnail and I and How to Get Ahead in Advertising.

I know that it is one of the director's less appreciated works, but Richard E. Grant holding Nashville reminded me that Grant played the fashion designer in Altman's Pret-a-Porter before he was in Gosford Park (it has been a while since I last saw it, but I don't seem to recall it being a Gosford Park-style murder mystery, as that trailer seems to be implying! Perhaps that theme was more muted in the film itself and I missed it entirely!)

That's because the film stinks like all the dog poo that litters the film. God I love Altman but sometimes you do wonder what he was thinking. Who has the right to Gosford Park?

Grant was also in Altman's The Player giving a very funny performance as the director who refuses to compromise his vision...until he compromises it completely.

Oh yes! I had forgotten about his proposed dark and gritty capital punishment drama being entirely transformed into Julia Roberts being rescued from the gas chamber by action man Bruce Willis and carried out in his arms!

I’m going to take Criterion posting on Instagram about the early career of Claire Denis to mean at least Chocolat is forthcoming, but hopefully a lot more of her early (and later) work too.
