It's going to be Napoleon, and it's going to be the biggest edition they've ever done for a single film. But it still won't have the Carl Davis score, for legal reasons.

Betting on Criterion to release a silent film is a losing strategy

I'm sure they'd consider it worthwhile, but only in the unlikely event that they could get the Carl Davis score and the five-and-a-half-hour cut. Personally I'm holding out for them to discover the full-length version of von Stroheim's Greed in a janitor's closet.

Napoleon is a really excellent prediction.

Hoping for Celine and Julie Go Boating, as it's probably the only Rivette without a Region A release that they could get the rights to, no? Unless L'amour fou is in play.

Anyway, a loaded edition would be a dream release, spine 1000 or not.

The Citizen Kane guesses from the New Year's drawing made me really happy (though the confirmation of Bamboozled has largely dashed that), and Napoleon would be my Criterion dream, but I'm getting the feeling that it'll be "Grand" Budapest Hotel. It's overdue for its Criterion edition release and they've given him nice round numbers like 300 and 700 in the past. The Royal Tenenbaums was one of my gateway drugs into the collection and I love Anderson, but I'm hoping I'm wrong and we'll get something with a little more stature in the cinema canon.

On the other hand, they nailed it with #500, so maybe I shouldn't doubt so much.

I see Napoleon on the Forthcoming list. Was it actually confirmed to be coming from Criterion at some point?

Yes, Kim Hendrickson confirmed a number of years back at a Wexner Q&A session.

We are at 7 releases before the magic #1000. It will either be the last release of October or the first release of November. It all depends on how many new spines we get in September.

Although it may be 6 if Criterion adjusts the Koker spines which that seems like a good bet.

Couldn’t it just be Roma?
