    $224.95 isn't that bad. It's about ten bucks a pop!

    Too bad I don't have that kind of money to blow.

    The Criterion Collection has announced nine titles for Blu-ray release in December: On December 3rd, the studio will release Elio Petri's Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (1970) and Robert Altman's Nashville (1975). On December 10, the studio will release Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Project, a collection of six films, and Albert Maysles, David Maysles, Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer's Grey Gardens (1976).
    Nothing for me to wet my pants over, though that Scorsese World Cinema Project looks interesting.

    Throne of Blood is my favorite Kurosawa film. There I said!



    And Shakespeare's MacBeth (The Scottish play ) is awesome!

    What's weird is that my Fave Shakes play is King Lear and yeah, Ran is awesome, but still, Mifune, haha.

    It was directed by Michael Mann, so 'damned fine movie' should be the assumption entering into it.
