FILMS THAT SHOULD BE ADDED TO THE CRITERION COLLECTION
They have more releases than I can keep up with, but there's always room for a little more...
- •Talk To HerThis is Almodovar's definitive masterpiece and it isn't out on blu-Ray yet
- •After LifeThis overlooked gem by Hirokazu Kore-Eda was released by the now defunct New Yorker films. It is a crappy transfer, it deserves a proper hi-def treatment.
- •FearlessThis Peter Weir pic is heartbreaking but ultimately life affirming.
- •The Vertical Ray of the SunBeauty is the only word that comes to mind
- •Waking LifeGroundbreaking visuals. Deep metaphysical conversations. Nothing quite like it in the world.
- •Groundhog DayMust I say anything?
- •Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past LivesWords don't do the film justice
- •TabuThis overlooked diamond by Miguel Gomes is beautiful, haunting and understated
- •A Serious Man / Barton FinkThe Coen's two best films. I couldn't decide.
- •Punch-Drunk LoveMy favorite PTA film. It would look gorgeous on blu-Ray. And there are rumors that criterion plans to release it.
- •Mary and MaxThis wonderful animated film is one of my all time faves. Voiced by Toni Collette and the late great Philip Seymour Hoffman
- •MargaretThis film was caught up in custody battles for years resulting in two different edits of the film. I prefer the longer version.
- •The king of ComedyHow has this not happened yet?!
- •I am LoveTulsa Swinton speaking Italian in a Russian accent
- •House of PleasuresAlso known as House of Tolerance. I'm not sure which is correct
- •Home For the HolidaysJodie Foster's greatest accomplishment to date
- •Defending Your LifeAlbert Brooks needs Criterion love & it needs to be this film
- •Lost in TranslationOr Marie Antoinette/The Virgin Suicides Sofia Coppola is a great director in her own right and should be canonized along with the men of her generationSuggested by @sugar
