I want more than anything for Citizen Kane to be announced, but The Grand Budapest Hotel sounds like the correct level of disappointment.

Bamboozled
Paris is Burning

Love it!! I was tempted to do a similar studio canal guess!

However that would break down to two releases each from Lustgarten, Stetler and Arosteguy, which would be extremely weird for criterion.

My insanity of new releases did have a method and would break down as

Hendrickson
Stetler
Elmore
Clubb
Arosteguy

Grand illusion is tougher to figure because so many producers have done Renoir films and the only dvd Takagi has produced herself is grand illusion.

I love the silliness of this thread

Ditto for the Tenant and Our Mother's House but I fear there is more chance of growing a spare set of genitals. Which is to say if it did come to fruition it's a win-win situation
