Should this replace the various singles entries ? I remembered the same happened with Dog Star Man.
Not all of those series are included in the Criterion list, so it doesn't make sense to replace it.
Or am I wrong? Haven't got the dvd.

:imdb: lists as "An 18-part series of colorful shorts by Stan Brakhage." while also adding "This film is included on "By Brakhage: an Anthology", which is part of the Criterion Collection, spine #184."

EDIT: So I took a look https://www.criterion.com/boxsets/722-b ... ne-and-two and it's definitely the first 3 only.

Speaking of Criterion + experimental films and representation at ICM:

There's actually (at least) three Hollis Frampton films included on the Criterion Frampton set; but aren't listed on the packaging / website / etc .... because they're the menus for the disc!

This might be exclusive to the Blu-Ray version, but the home menu changes when you reload it; and includes the following short films:

Inside Silo 11 (1969)
Trees in the River, Kent OH (1973)
Tree Over the Valley, Eaton (1974)

Less (1973) might also be on there, but I'd need to check again.

So, if you own the Blu-Ray + played it, you can check the above films.

But you're not suggesting adding them to the official list, right?

I mean, I of course would welcome such an idea - but there's that strong contingent here who go by the title on the front alone ... and everything else must be thoroughly excluded (even when it's vague like the Godzilla set, or these shorts collections: what's a short and what's a bonus feature?).

Its just a weird curio and a nifty bonus for those who own it. Since you have to do some digging to find these shorts, its kinda more of an easter egg bonus than an included short. But still (as has always been my argument) - you can't separate these films from the set; and by buying the product, you also get these additional films as well as the "main feature" - no matter what the front cover says.

Here's the scale of the issue: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/crit ... van+dutch/
Especially as it would create 227+ new checks!

But again, we've had this argument before, it goes nowhere, and I seem to be the only advocate for it. An' ye harm none, do what ye will.

Criterion have already confirmed that they will eventually release Celine Sciamma's Portrait of a Lady on Fire. Their first collaboration with the distributor Neon...interesting.

Criterion's annual New Year's drawing:

All seem to be clues for box sets. According to the consensus best guesses that I've seen:

Top left= Fellini box set ("Fallen E")
Top right= Wong Kar Wai box set ("1 Car Why?)
Bottom left= Agnes Varda box set (the box is "On Yes", the French pronunciation of Agnes)
Bottom right= Bruce Lee box set (a bust of a bruised Robert E. Lee, "Bruised Lee")

So in 2020 (could be longer I guess), they're releasing Grand Budapest Hotel, Roma, Parasite, Marriage Story, The Irishman, American Factory, Atlantics, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and Varda By Agnes? That's a lot of recent big-name films compared to their normal output. And fewer surprise titles too, which is sad because it's always fun when they're announced and it's something you're not expecting.

I think it's a sign the physical market is near dead outside the specialists.

Bruce Lee box set?

That's not something I'd have expected.

Thought South Park already did that a couple decades ago with MechaStreisand.

Looks like Jarmusch's Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai will be released by Criterion in the near future.

That’s good news. Hope the restoration makes it way to region B too

Out of the Jarmusch films I've seen, Ghost Dog is right up there amongst my favorites, probably second to Dead Man. Just glad to see it get any kind of Blu-ray release/restoration.
