I didn’t realize Breasonaire had posted— why bother guessing at all now, there’s this month’s lineup

In a way, maybe. They got noticed. This month was clearly strategic to throw us off their scent. We'll see a new account spring up that mysteriously starts getting everything right, I'm sure...

Not realistic, but Floating Weeds, Written On The Wind, and The Lady Eve are all overdue for upgrades.. They’ve also been upgrading a lot of boxes lately, so maybe the Varda set or the Dreyer set..

Bamboo sled
Polyester
The Circus

Agnieszka Holland's The Secret Garden
Alfonso Cuaron's A Little Princess

(I jest, and it's totally random with no rumor basis (other than what I'm creating right now!) due to a conversation my wife and I had about those films last week, but those would be some fascinating releases, I'd love to see some features on the WB regime that resulted in international directors making incredible family films).

Fists in the Pocket Bressonaire upgrade
6xVarda boxset upgrade (they do the box set but add in Les Creatures and Le Petit Amour, because that would be silly)


Berlanga eclipse
