A couple weeks ago a poster on Reddit took a photo of the Criterion booth at a sales expo that had the Bergman set on display.

Thanks! Interesting that it's much smaller than the Murnau and Ford Fox boxes-- thank God! It looks like it will actually fit on my shelf

It looks to be about as big as Arrow's Herschell Gordon Lewis Feast box.

I don't know where I should post this exactly, so apologies if I guessed wrong. So, I remember a while back, someone posted a picture taken at Criterion's offices where we saw a shelf of non-Criterion editions and people were trying to find out what they were. It was believed, and probably rightly, that Criterion used them to research/source special feature content from past editions for their own future releases.

Well this video was posted on Youtube, and near the end of the video, there are a lot of releases seen. Thought I should share.

That older Arrow release in the first picture looks like Richard Elfman’s Forbidden Zone.

I spot two Second Run Blu-rays (olive/yellow and turquoise) on the lower left shelf in the first picture. The latter could be Electra, My Love... not sure about the former. There's also a SR DVD, which appears to be gray. (Tropical Malady? Please?)

3rd pic : The blue and beige sets next to the Potemkine Rohmer set are also 2 French Rohmer sets. The orange-y set on the left of the Tati set is the BFI Jan Svankmajer: The Complete Short Films DVD set. One shelf below it, slightly on the left is a black set with a red title and a small white logo on top, that's the Cinema Cinema French DVD set (which compiles many episodes from the TV documentary show).
1st pic: 4 releases on the right of the 8 hours don't make a day Arrow set are French Fassbinder releases : Despair, World on a Wire and twice I only want you to love me. World on a Wire is again below the Arrow set, a bit on the left (but on BD this time).

Better caps :

In the first picture on the shelf directly underneath Eight Hours Don't Make A Day are the distinctive brown spines of the BFI DVD releases of Peter Greenaway's The Draughtsman's Contract and A Zed and Two Noughts. I think that means that The Early Films of Peter Greenaway is a couple of spines to the left of it, though it looks to be only one of the two volumes (maybe the second with The Falls on it?), and presumably some of the other French-looking DVDs are for other Greenaways.

Also to the left of the Fassbinder I think the red spined Artifiical Eye set is the Alain Resnais one and the wider one just left of that with the 18 BBFC logo on it is likely the big Haneke set that AE released.

Two shelves down from that the box with the gold top edge and the figure in the circle is Studio Canal's Early Hitchcock DVD set (which gathered together The Ring, Champagne, The Farmer's Wife, The Manxman, Blackmail, Murder!, The Skin Game, Rich and Strange and Number Seventeen)

(I just hope that the people in front of the camera in the video are not upset by us trying to push them aside to get a better look at the shelves! :) )

Does anyone know exactly what brand/make/whatever those shelves in the pictures are, by chance?

A few others from the first pic :
- Left of the Hitchcock set are 2 Elephant releases of Hitch early movies (The Lodger and probably Downhill)
- Left of all the Fassbinder stuff, there is a white set, it's the French Pierre Etaix set.
- Below it are some Carlotta Richard Fleischer releases : the yellow one is Violent Saturday, on the right it's The Boston Strangler (black spine, yellow title). Just left of it, there is a Eureka title with a grey spine and a yellow title, that's Paranoiac. The Arrow older release (with the old white slipcover) a bit on their right is City of the Living Dead.

On the other angle :
- Top shelf, a bit on the left of the Rohmer blue set is an orange SNC DVD release from I mostri.
- On the second (from the top) shelf, next to the Eureka WCP set is the French Carlotta one. On the very left of this shelf is the French DVD from The Tin Drum, then something I don't know, then 2 Barbet Schroeder French DVDs (I think the 1st one is the Schroeder set, then Maitresse individual release). On the far right of this shelf is Carlotta 1st DVD set of 4 Douglas Sirk movies (Imitation of Life + Magnificient Obsession + A Time to Love A Time to Die + All That Heaven Allows).
- Below the Svankmajer set, the white and red/orange set is the old Gaumont Jean Vigo DVD set. There also is nearby a Tourneur set.
- Very far right, on the floor, the 3 massive Polish masterpieces sets.

The 2 Second Run releases next to the Woodfall set seems to be Electra my Love and The Fabulous Baron Munchausen (blue and green spines).

Few additionnal caps :

I see the Bo Widerberg Boxen Swedish set in the lower left of the waving-arms pics.

I can also see the Stewart Granger Collection that includes The Lamp Still Burns, Love Story, Fanny by Gaslight, Madonna of the Seven Moons, Waterloo Road, Caesar and Cleopatra, Caravan, The Magic Bow, Captain Boycott, Blanche Fury, Woman Hater, Adam and Evelyne (in the pics showing the whole row of Eclipse sets, on the right side, middle shelf).

Thanks, but what about the DVD? I've narrowed it down to either Tropical Malady or Interrogation. Malady seems likely due to the director already having a film in the collection.
