But they look so nice all lined up together--blue, white, red. Uh, just like the Polish flag 8-[

The Lionel Rogosin and Shirley Clarke blus are half off! Never heard of John Canemaker but those look very interesting.

John Canemaker is not only a dear friend, but the entire animation world's. He is an Oscar-award winning animator as well as film historian and NYU professor. He's done half of Disney classic films' commentary tracks with Leonard Maltin doing the other half. (An exaggeration, but close enough.) His books on Winsor McCay, Felix the Cat and many Disney animators are just spectacular. He has done animation for the songs of John Lennon as well as The World According to Garp. But his own indie animation is even better!

His blog site is http://animatedeye.johncanemaker.com/about/

I cannot recommend the Shirley Clarke films enough, having been fortunate enough to catch the 35mm restorations of each one of then when they played in Los Angeles. I'm going to order Ornette: Made in America this week and can't stress enough what an incredible portrait it is of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. I also love Portrait of Jason , a film that's equal parts hilarious, heartbreaking, and uncomfortable and captures a particular kind of queerness that seemed to be undocumented then. It's a film that I think about a lot and captures that beautiful mix of documentary and imposed narrative that wasn't captured again until Abaas Kiarostami's Close-Up.

Sorry, no. They are DVD or Blu-ray, but they are not packaged together.

Dennis, do you ever show your films in the Boston area? There are three that I can think of that would show your caliber of movies: Kendall Square Cinema in Cambridge, West Newton Cinema in Newton, and Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline.

We show a lot at the Brattle, the Harvard Film Archive and the Museum of Fine Arts. The Coolidge sometimes plays our films.

Any update on when Rocco and His Brothers is now due? TCM ran the restored version with a Milestone logo, yesterday morning. A hopeful sign, perhaps.

Yes, I have a date in mind, the bonus features and feature at the lab and the cover almost done. However, it will be early next year!

I just watched it on Filmstruck a few nights ago and that has a Milestone logo as well. Was that the restoration? (It looked pretty good).

https://www.gofundme.com/alice-b-russell-micheaux-headstone

Dear Criterionites,

My good friends Terri Francis and Brian Graney of the Indiana University Black Film Archive is trying to raise funds to provide a headstone to the grave of Alice Micheaux, the wife of Oscar. "Alice B. Russell Micheaux was a pioneering film actress and film producer, as well as the widow of Oscar Micheaux, renowned African American filmmaker, active during the silent era through the 1940s. Yet unfortunately, Alice spent her final years as a ward of the state suffering from dementia, and was buried in 1985 in an unmarked pauper’s grave at the Greenwood Union Cemetery in Rye, New York."

I hope you all can help!

Is the any chance of Killer of Sheep getting a Blu-ray upgrade? I skipped a screening earlier this year, not knowing anything about it, and have seen it mentioned nearly weekly since doing so, much to my chagrin. I may have to plump for the DVD, but I dislike buying DVDs, especially blind-buys of films that seem important enough to one day get upgraded.

A recent newsletter made a mention of a recent Academy Award given to him, but did not mention any Blu-ray upgrade despite Milestone selling Killer of Sheep for $16.

Any new info on Killer of Sheep coming to Blu-ray? I can't imagine that this film would not get an upgrade, considering its high profile and the new restoration.

In the same vein, every time I see Milestone pop to the top of the forum posts, I hope I’m going to see news of a Soy Cuba blu
