David Cronenberg's 'Naked Lunch' -- the film 'The Simpsons' mocked when Bart and his friends snuck into it and Nelson Muntz came out saying "I can think of at least two things wrong with that title" -- is getting the Criterion Collection Blu-ray treatment this April, alongside cult classic 'Repo Man' and more.
The Criterion Collection
The Criterion Collection is one of the great home video companies, with their numbered collection of some of the finest films and cult favorites presented in restored transfers and with thoughtful extras. Now they're teasing their upcoming releases in their annual drawing of upcoming titles.
The Criterion Collection is ending the year with one of the best months of new announcements in quite some time. For March, we're getting two Blu-ray upgrades, and four new releases of titles by Terrence Malick, Fritz Lang, Charlie Chaplin and Robert Bresson. If you love movies, there's going to be a couple here to excite you.
It's that time of the month when The Criterion Collection announces their upcoming titles. And though there may not be many surprises for those paying attention, we're finally getting Christopher Nolan in the prestigious collection, and a Blu-ray upgrade of one of Criterion's greatest special editions.
Criterion rumored a release of Romany Polanski's 1968 classic 'Rosemary's Baby' earlier this year, so it's great to know it's hitting the collection just before Halloween. Also in the mix, a Blu-ray upgrade for Wong Kar-Wai's 'In the Mood for Love' and more.
