Virgin Spring is one of my all time favorites in the collection. Can't wait to grab that on Blu.
Go ahead, make my millennium.

Will for sure be picking up Virgin Spring and El Sur.

For those interested - the pre-order for the blu ray of Joan of Arc (releasing tomorrow) is down to $19.80 on Amazon, slightly below the 50% mark.

Random self promotion, but here at my work we are auctioning off a lot of Criterion DVDs:

You may be able to get a pretty good deal on the Kurosawa Set in there.

My Man Godfrey and Andrei Rublev!

Man, I've loved My Man Godfrey for years, but I'm not feeling that cover. I always thought Kurtz could nail that property. Have Godfrey all big holding a tray in his butler uni, and on the tray are the rest of the family that he looks after in the movie.

I held out buying the Andrei Rublev DVD for years waiting for the Blu-ray and finally caved last year and bought the DVD. Whoops.

Never seen it. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is doing a Bergman fest soon. If they play it, I'll try to check it out.

Ha, that cover had me do a double take. It's certainly by Canadian graphic novelist Seth in his particular style. He happens to be one of my favourites, but it may be more of an acquired taste. And not dissimilar to the Bergman films on this page that some love and some just don't. :wink:
