Given that we know Wanda and My Brilliant Career are coming, I wonder if whatever month they come out will be all female directors-- Varda and Denis already have likely future releases, prob wouldn't be hard to do
This is my guess for December

December is usually pretty light. Could it be highlighted with (finally) Grand Budapest Hotel? We'll see...

something from Claire Denis
something from Won Kar Wai
something from someone else...?

I'm expecting a light month, definitely with an upgrade or two. Notorious would be a welcome solicitation; Z should be coming soon as well.

I had a dream the other day that involved Criterion having an entire month's slate be classic Hollywood rom-coms. Or was it a nightmare?

Sawdust and Tinsel is listed under "coming soon", not that anyone here would really care given the box set.

I was just about to post how I can’t imagine anyone guessing any of these.

Based on his other (40) posts we’ve got a TBD woody Allen project, Europa Europa, my brilliant career, 4M3W2D, and gospel according to st Matthew coming.

If he’s as good at “predicting” as he seems

Ha! I'm flattered that you think 60% is good. (I mean, there were two that were wrong.) In fact, I guessed A Dry White Season last month, right after it was mentioned in the Social Media thread, so I guess it stuck in my mind. Forty Guns was recently tweeted about by Fuller's daughter, as I recall. About Panique, I don't know why I guessed it; perhaps a yearning for more French noir, but it also had a run at Film Forum recently and I noted that it wasn't a Studio Canal title, though the rest of the rights issues I see discussed here usually leave me at a loss.

Lastly, if I once guessed Woody Allen, I'm not at all sure now, given recent events.
