Kino is now racking up a good number of Buñuel titles (including Death in the Garden and Los Olvidados) without a single physical release so far. As much as I want all of the SC titles to go back to Criterion, if KL is prepping a box set I’d be down for that.

So far (from what we know) - Kino has 8 out of 44 OOP Criterion Studio Canal titles.
Which one am I missing out of the (now nine) confirmed titles?

I found eight in the various posts/forums:

Alphaville
Bob le flambeur
Le doulos
Kind Hearts and Coronets
Last Year at Marienbad
The Milky Way
Quai des Orfèvres
Port of Shadows

EDIT: Nevermind, found it. It was Billy Liar.

Very excited to see Love Me Tonight (1932) on the list. One of my favorite musicals and it will be nice to get rid of the old dvd.

So there are 19 more unconfirmed films in addition to the list above? Or the list contains 19 films that were previously unconfirmed?

Peter Ibbetson seems to be the only film from the Gary Cooper Collection DVD release not listed (Design for Living being with Criterion, obvs). Also, it it weird that The Great McGinty is the only Sturges listed? I imagine Criterion would have dibs on some of them, but you'd expect at least The Great Moment to be up for grabs.

Very surprised, and more than a little disappointed, that the two Universal Frank Perry titles (Mad Housewife, Play It As it Lays) and Puzzle of a Downfall Child aren’t on here. They never saw DVD releases and seemed perfectly fit for KL. Is there a possibility that Shout or Criterion picked them up? Criterion seems to be too busy to deal with 70s melodrama, and it seems pretty far out of Shout’s wheelhouse in terms of their Select line. Maybe Arrow Academy? These titles need disc releases. It’s been way too long.

They won’t be in the unannounced lot either as there aren’t any more 70s titles left
Still to be confirmed be decade. This current deal ended up being 99 films.
1930s - 1
1940s - 7
1950s - 4
1960s - 4 (just confirmed The War Lord)
1980s - 3
1990s - 1

All three feel perfect for Indicator, though they'd be Region B only so not sure if that'd help you if you're region locked.

Although Indicator is out of the UK, all of their releases have been region-free AFAIK.

I’d be very on board with Indicator doing them. More than KL even because Indicator does a stellar job of curating supplements and packaging.

Puzzle has a French blu ray so I assume Universal has an HD master, but I know in Griffin Dunne’s Didion doc last year, the footage from Play It was SD and looked awful. Mad Housewife also has an elusive extended cut, currently cobbled together from Beta and VHS copies, that would be a big get if properly restored.

Bright Angel (1990) with optional English subtitles
• Audio Commentary by director Michael Fields
• A Booklet Essay by Writer Richard Ford
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 93 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
George Russell (Dermot Mulroney, Career Opportunities) is about to be swept up by his own destiny and carried into a future he never planned. A teenager stuck in a broken home in smalltown Montana, George longs for something beyond the prairie. The vivacious Lucy (Lili Taylor, I Shot Andy Warhol) becomes his ticket to freedom. Both have their own reasons for driving to Casper, Wyoming: Lucy to free her imprisoned brother; George to grasp some sense of personal direction by catching up with his estranged mother. The ride south promises more than just family reunions, as George and Lucy’s mutual curiosity blossoms into something resembling love. The colorful cast of this unique road-movie odyssey includes Sam Shepard (Country), Valerie Perrine (The Border), Burt Young (Rocky), Bill Pullman (Lost Highway), Benjamin Bratt (Miss Congeniality), Mary Kay Place (The Big Chill), Delroy Lindo (Crooklyn), Kevin Tighe (Road House) and Sheila McCarthy (Die Hard 2).

Available for the first time in its correct 2.35:1 aspect ratio on Blu-ray!

MONEY FOR NOTHING (1993) with optional English subtitles
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 100 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated R
John Cusack (Better Off Dead…) stars in the hilarious comedy for everyone who’s ever dreamt of instant millions. After finding a bagful of unmarked $100 bills, there were a million reasons for unemployed dockworker Joey Coyle to give the money back, but he couldn’t think of one. The lucky find launches a buying spree and a series of uproarious events leading to Joey’s outrageous attempt at sneaking out of the country—past the media, the mob and the cops. Money for Nothing is an action-comedy packed with priceless laughs, directed by Ramón Menéndez (Stand and Deliver) and co-starring Debi Mazar (Empire Records), Michael Madsen (The Hateful Eight), Benicio Del Toro (Sicario), James Gandolfini (TV’s The Sopranos), Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote), Michael Rapaport (True Romance), Maury Chaykin (Unstrung Heroes), Fionnula Flanagan (The Others) and Frankie Faison (Hannibal).

Color 98 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated R
Based on a True Story! Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) stars as Veronica Guerin in this action-packed, critically-acclaimed film about the real-life journalist who risked everything in search of the truth. In the mid-1990s, Dublin was nothing short of a war zone as the most powerful drug lords battled for absolute control. But their most fearsome opponent wasn’t the police, it was the courageous Sunday Independent reporter Veronica Guerin. Investigating the criminal underworld meant risking her life… and the lives of her family. Joel Schumacher (Flatliners, Falling Down) directed this crackling suspense-filled drama with a top-notch cast including Ciarán Hinds (Munich), Brenda Fricker (My Left Foot), Gerald McSorley (TV’s Omagh) and Colin Farrell (In Bruges).

The version of Diary of a Mad Housewife on YouTube that you're referring to is a chimera of the theatrical cut and a version prepared for American network
television by Frank Perry. Interestingly, like many other M.I.A. Universal titles, the film can be seen on the free library app Hoopla. I've seen it and Play it as it Lays
on beautiful 35mm prints that were struck after Universal's 2008 backlot fire, so I can't imagine that there aren't good materials for quality restorations. Neither film
has much music, either, so that can't be holding up their home video rights. Really bizarre and frustrating that they, Puzzle of a Downfall Child and
Red Sky at Morning (which has screened in HD on Universal's premium cable channel) have never been released on DVD.

Thirst (2009) In Korean with optional English subtitles
• Audio Commentary by Entertainment Journalist and Author Bryan Reesman
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 135 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated R
From Chan-wook Park, the director of Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, Lady Vengeance and Stoker, comes a shockingly original vampire story with a chilling, erotic style. A blood transfusion saves the life of a priest (Kang-ho Song, Memories of Murder, The Host, Snowpiercer), but also transforms him into a vampire. He struggles to control his insatiable thirst for blood until a love affair unleashes his darkest desires in deadly new ways. Daring and operatic, Thirst is a truly wicked love story that takes classic vampire lore to twisted new heights. “A MAD LOVE STORY! Director Park Chan-wook’s richest, craziest, most mature work yet!” – Richard Corliss, TIME

• Madness… It's Beautiful - Featurette
They Might Be Giants is presented in a special expanded version, featuring additional footage not seen in the original theatrical release.
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 91 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated G
Wealthy, retired judge Justin Playfair (George C. Scott, The Day of the Dolphin, The Hustler) has a most peculiar eccentricity: he believes he is Sherlock Holmes. Betrayed by his scheming brother, “Holmes” comes under the care of psychiatrist Dr. Mildred Watson (Joanne Woodward, The Three Faces of Eve, Paris Blues). As Watson follows Holmes through Manhattan on a search for his elusive nemesis Moriarty, the unlikely pair are drawn into a world of danger and intrigue. Together, they discover an uncommon reality—and a most magical love. Three years after the film The Lion in Winter, director Anthony Harvey (Grace Quigley) and screenwriter/playwright James Goldman (Robin and Marian) reunited for this classic romantic comedy. The amazing cast includes Jack Gilford (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), Al Lewis (TV’s The Munsters), Rue McClanahan (TV’s The Golden Girls), Kitty Winn (The Panic in Needle Park), F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus) and M. Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple).
