I haven't seen those Mungiu films but you'd think they would have released all 3 of those, yeah.

I'm pumped about Mishima on Blu-ray...it's gonna look fantastic I'm sure.

On the Criterion page for the film they have a video and 11 other images from the film. Most of the images would have made a stunning cover. Ugh.

I see Peaceful already updated the iCM list, thanks!

I was busy with a slightly odd Amazon deal. I got an email alert that the Eureka/MoC blu-ray box set The Complete Buster Keaton Short Films had dropped to $31.05 (which is pretty close to the cheapest it's ever been) on Amazon.com (not UK). I checked out the listing and it had "Amazon Global Store UK" as seller and said "+$4.21 shipping". I did my usual spreadsheet workout and compared to Amazon UK's price and it came out slightly ahead overall. So I add it to my cart and start the checkout process.

Order summary says "$31.05+$8.89 shipping" which means it's no longer a deal (cheaper to order directly from UK myself). So I hit up the help chat and ask which is the correct shipping cost. That's all I did. I'm told to place the order while on the chat and they'll waive shipping. So I do that, and then the guy is "You placed the order with Amazon Global Store UK. I can't waive shipping on that, but I can give you a $8.89 promo." Cool beans, I'll take it.

So for asking which of the two shipping rates was the correct one, I got free shipping on my box set, which was already a deal at $31.

That makes me very happy, especially as I never bothered to get it on DVD, figuring a BD and possible Criterion was coming. Now I just need to get The Stranger and The Trial, though I may wait for a better version of the latter.

I held off on the DVD as well. Actually, I still need to get Citizen Kane on blu, but it's on my list of movies to buy some day (along with all the other Welles movies. And Tarkovsky movies. And Greenaway movies. And...).

I had the Ambersons DVD out from Netflix a few years back. It's a decent enough transfer and the packaging looks good I suppose, but it has virtually zero bonus features and only exists really as a supplemental feature for the Citizen Kane 70th anniversary home video release. So it's really good to see Criterion giving it a proper release. Now if only they announced that the original, uncut version was to go along with it...

In fact, at 50% off, it's only twice as much as I just paid for the von Sternberg set, for 6.5 times the amount of films.
