Quick update for you Criterion fans:  May’s Criterion Newsletter hit our e-mail in-boxes this week.  Head on over to the Criterion site and check out all of their fresh wares.  Medium Cool’s director Haskell Wexler gives his Top 10, Criterion producer Abbey Lustgarten informs us of the 10 Things (She) Learned working on the new Medium Cool set, there’s a couple new Three Reasons focused on Band of Outsiders and Life Is Sweet, a really cool one-sheet poster for Safety Last is up for sale and… of course… there’s plenty of information on all their upcoming releases and essays on previous ones.

By the way, this month’s pictogram clue for upcoming releases (see below) gives us a pretty good indication that we’re in for a three-fer of classic Rossellini/Bergman films:  Stromboli, Voyage to Italy and Eurpoa ‘51.

Keep spinning those discs!
