Yep, they're just blowing it off this month. No releases at all. I can tell because they didn't announce anything on the 15th, a date no one ever promised you, and one they haven't consistently stuck to for months. I guess they just don't care anymore.

I'm going to venture that the lack of upgrades indicates a big upgrade project that got pushed off the schedule last minute delaying announcements as well. I'm guessing either varda or the war trilogy. We will probably have a lot of upgrades in February.

You mean Welles' Othello? Criterion have the rights? I've been watching the R2 DVD far too long...

I'd take that Teshigahara upgrade too.

There's a lot of stuff celebrating 1966 & the musical & social revolution, especially in the UK, just getting into print 50 years on (such as is this - 1966: the year youth culture exploded), pointing to BLOW UP coming to Criterion BR sometime in 2016, its 50 th anniversary...
