Love it!! I was tempted to do a similar studio canal guess!

However that would break down to two releases each from Lustgarten, Stetler and Arosteguy, which would be extremely weird for criterion.

My insanity of new releases did have a method and would break down as

Hendrickson
Stetler
Elmore
Clubb
Arosteguy

Grand illusion is tougher to figure because so many producers have done Renoir films and the only dvd Takagi has produced herself is grand illusion.

I love the silliness of this thread

Ditto for the Tenant and Our Mother's House but I fear there is more chance of growing a spare set of genitals. Which is to say if it did come to fruition it's a win-win situation

The Tenant is getting a Blu-ray release from Shock in Australia in August, though I don't know how that impacts your genitals

Well, I just found a bullet-pen in my Grindhouse disc of The Tough Ones. Maybe Criterion will include that extra gential set in their Tenant, if it happens.

Considering how many Polanski films are in the collection and how much Chinatown has been in the cultural conversation since the Epstein arrest, I'm not so sure he's "cancelled" in the sort of way that would make Criterion stay away. If there's a restoration of The Tenant that's available to them, I'd be shocked if they'd pass on it.

Those already have a Blu release. Peeping Tom on the other hand needs to be redone.

I know, I have both of them. Just saying they will be announced as returning to the collection. But my post was more tongue in cheek

People are putting all this thought into 1,000....999 is the real question. And if its anything other than the Devils I’m gonna be disappointed.

Is there a reason Star 80 is popping up in multiple lists? Was there a hint or tease I missed or is it just wishing and hoping?

Wishful thinking on my part. Don’t know about anyone else.

They’ll drop 999 and announce they’re pulling an oppo on physical media.
