It's a challenge for the official Criterion Collection, Eclipse and Masters of Cinema lists. These lists are linked in the OP. I'm not the big boss but I can guess that sol will tell you the same thing; it's on one of those three lists or it doesn't count.
If that's sol's ruling then that's sol's ruling, but it does make me wonder about all the official lists that we use here. If the Criterion list chooses to ignore 100s of the original titles that made the label significant (only 19 % of the 954 titles released on laser have been rereleased on DVD or BLU) then that's a very bogus list. Letterboxing, commentary tracks, and even special features were all things that Criterion pioneered the use of on laserdisc. Their reputation for quality releases was founded in the laserdisc era. That many of those laserdiscs are still collected and valued, primarily for commentary tracks and special features that are no longer available, shows just how important they still are.
I get your point, and I had a similarly-motivated question earlier (about whether all Bergman films were available, since the full collection was on Criterion now), but ultimately, we're going with the official lists.

Though you brought up some issues I was unaware of regarding Criterion and laserdiscs. Kinda interesting - out of sheer curiosity, do you have any links on Criterion history, or are you just going to tell me to JFGI? :circle: :cheers:
I have googled it and I didn't find a lot. Yesterday, I was in a hurry and I relied on wikipedia for the numbers I quoted, and this morning I discovered they got it wrong (as a librarian I usually don't trust them for research but sometimes it's the fastest and only info you can find). It looks like they released around 300 titles on laserdisc and around 100 have never been reissued. According to a list on Letterboxed by Michael Hutchens they released 305 titles on laser, 204 have been re-released on DVD and 119 on BLU leaving 101 of the original laserdisc Criterion Collection still unreleased. This includes the first two titles that they initially made their name with: Citizen Kane and King Kong (1933). I own this original KK release and it's a beauty - great supplements and at the time the film looked better than ever although the later image release on laserdisc improved on the restoration quite a bit, I still held onto my Criterion for all the extras.

Criterion was even more unique in the laserdisc era when very few other companies bothered with commentaries and special features (something that has become de rigueur in the DVD era). In a way they paved the way for the collectible nature of DVDs by providing more than just a way to watch the film. Criterion also often released their laserdiscs in two speeds - CAV and CLV. the former provided the best image quality but relied upon flipping the discs more often as less info could be compressed. But, and this was fantastic for a stop-motion film like King Kong, the CAV versions allowed for a frame by frame analysis of the film - advancing frame by frame at your own speed with no loss of clarity from image to image. Some of my fondest memories of the laserdisc era involve studying the climax of Bride of Frankenstein and many of the action scenes in John Woo's The Killer and Hardboiled in this fashion, but I also went through much of Kong frame by frame a number of times.

But getting back to your question, here's a few links to info on the Criterion Collection on laserdisc:

A short 18 minute history of the Criterion Collection that begins with a history of Janus films with whom they have been closely allied:


The Wikipedia article which makes some interesting points about their history - I noted that almost all the innovations listed occured when they were being released on laserdiscs:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Criterion_Collection

Wikipedia's list of titles released on laserdisc (with annotations showing which have been re-released on DVD):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_C ... c_releases

A listing of both Criterion lasers and DVDs which is sortable by title, director, country, genre and year:
http://www.dvduell.de/criterion_website ... talog.html

The list on Letterboxed which shows the 101 titles still to be re-released:
https://letterboxd.com/michaelhutchins/ ... sc-titles/

And because you live nearish to Seattle, a link to the world's greatest video store, Scarecrow. I managed this store for most of the laserdisc era - we were just adding DVDs when I left, and at that time we had the complete Criterion Collection for rent on laserdisc.

I still have over 100 laserdics including Bergman's Winter Light myself. :huh:
:cheers: to a laser comrade! I've drastically weeded my collection twice to pay for moves from Seattle and San Francisco and I hardly play the ones I have anymore but I still treasure the ones I've kept and they occasionally provide me a way to see something again that I couldn't see otherwise.

You may get hooked. It's like nirvana to film aficionados. If Cinema Books is still nearby - half a block down on the corner - then that is worth a stop too.

Week 1(ish) Stats and Challenge Update
I think that the longest film watched for the Challenge so far is
Profound Desires of the Gods
, clocking in at a whopping 173 minutes according to iCM. There's a really long Bergman documentary too, though I'm not sure if it is a miniseries or single entry. Apologies if this stat is wrong.
About this stat, the Criterion version of the Bergman documentary is only 85 minutes so that's definitely not the longest one.
The longest one I saw this first week was La undicesima Olympiade di Amsterdam (Spedizione di Guelfo Civinini) (1928) with a runtime of 4 hours and 10 minutes. :ICM:
I believe the Bergman documentary referred to here is the one about Autumn Sonata, which is 3.5 hours (not a miniseries). although it would be classified as a bonus film.

and I think Shoah is the single longest non-miniseries/serialized entry in the Collection at 566 minutes.

The production design team do a great capturing just how intrusive the never-ending light is on the protagonist with fluorescent white lights everywhere, from classrooms to stairwell corridors, plus darkly comic repeated failed attempts to block the sunlight out of his motel room (see above). And yet, as a flawed individual slowly losing his grip on reality due to sleep deprivation, Stellan Skarsgård has nothing on Al Pacino in the remake, nor is the antagonist here half as creepy as Robin Williams. Some neat flashbacks here, but Nolan's version impressed me more overall.

I've written multiple papers in school about the Criterion probl…Show
1. Summer with Monika (1953)
2. Shadows in Paradise (1986) [eclipse]
3. In a Lonely Place (1950)
4. Don’t Look Back (1967)
"5-6: Shorts:
A Dancer's World (1957, 31m)
The Frozen North (1922, 17m)
Convict 13 (1920, 19m)
His Wedding Night (1917, 19m)
The Rough House (1917, 19m)
The Scarecrow (1920, 19m)"
7. The War Room (1993)

Nice moody piece about the Clinton campaign in 1992, but ultimately nothing that I found terribly special. Good, but not great.

8. Mildred Pierce (1945)

I have this at a 7/10, and it would have been higher if not for the casual and rampant racism, sexism, and the gaping plot hole of if Mildred actually acted like a parent in the first act, the rest of the film would have gone away.

9. Shorts (60m):
Magellan: At the Gates of Death, Part I: The Red Gate I, 0 (1976, 4m)
The Birth of Magellan: Cadenza I (1977, 6m)
Cat's Cradle (1959, 6m)
Crack Glass Eulogy (1992, 6m)
The Dante Quartet (1987, 6m)

Heh. Yes. But they didn't annoy me nearly as much as the Brakhage ones. (Especially Desistfilm with what many biblical scholars call Satan's interpretation of the most annoying sound in the world.)

This is a lot darker and more sexually explicit than your average Mike Leigh movie, but the dialogue sparkles as brightly as ever with David Thewlis allowed several memorable rants and tirades in which he waxes philosophical about everything from the Mayan prophecies to the idea that an amoeba could never imagine its evolution. Unfortunately, the film does not focus on Thewlis, instead going off on tangents with other less interesting characters and many of the off-street scenes backfire. I did like the music here though, as well as some of Leigh's deliberate framing (see above).

I kinda, sorta like these Olympic movies. When they announced the set I didn't understand why they would release something like this but in fact, it's not a bad idea at all. :poshclap:

The most interesting person here - Stig Järrel's cruel teacher - is unfortunately only really a side character, but there are some great moments as Järrel and a colleague debate fear in education and Järrel often lets us under his skin. Where the film takes his character is not too logical, but it leads to some powerful bits. The ending is a little too optimistic for its own good, but the film lingers in the mind with its striking German Expressionism influenced shadows and lighting and high and low camera angles and panning shots throughout.

A curious precursor to Poltergeist. Charles Lang's Oscar nominated cinematography is exquisite throughout with an emphasis on shadows and characters in silhouette. There are also several subtle touches, like flowers wilting without the protagonists noticing, and the séance is spellbinding. The film never maintains a constant sense of fear or dread with too much time dedicated to a weird romance between Ray Milland and girl young enough to be his daughter. Victor Young's music is also inappropriately upbeat at times, but there is loads of interest here.

This early Ozu film has some nifty camerawork, including glides throughout the office workplace, but as a narrative it changes tune so often that it feels like Ozu wrote it as he went along. An initial army training scene, for instance, has no bearing on the plot except obliquely near at the end. There is also a weird subplot with a bear on the loose from the zoo. The basic allegorical nature of the plot certainly resonates, but all the shifting in plot directions and jumping between comedy and melodrama does the story a bit of a disservice.
