            You're not the only one! I'm glad the late, great John Hughes is now part of Criterion. Maybe this will clear the way for more of his titles.

                • I'll buy any and all Hughes films Criterion puts out. For once mainstream popularity and greatness come together like clockwork.

                      Dead Man seems to be the best guess so far.

                            • For his feature debut, twenty-four-year-old Louis Malle brought together a mesmerizing performance by Jeanne Moreau, evocative cinematography by Henri Decaí«, and a now legendary jazz score by Miles Davis. Taking place over the course of one restless Paris night, Malle's richly atmospheric crime thriller stars Moreau and Maurice Ronet as star-crossed lovers whose plan to murder her husband (his boss) goes awry, setting off a chain of events that seals their fate. A career touchstone for its director and female star, Elevator to the Gallows was an astonishing beginning to Malle's eclectic body of work, and it established Moreau as one of the most captivating actors to ever grace the screen.

                              • Shot outside Pittsburgh on a shoestring budget by a band of filmmakers determined to make their mark, Night of the Living Dead, directed by horror master George A. Romero, is one of the great stories of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time. A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of recently dead, flesh-eating ghouls, Romero's claustrophobic vision of a late-1960s America literally tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in its lead role. Stark, haunting, and more relevant than ever, Night of the Living Dead is back, in a new 4K restoration.


                                New 4K digital restoration, supervised by director George A. Romero, coscreenwriter John A. Russo, sound engineer Gary R. Streiner, and producer Russell W. Streiner

                                Never-before-seen 16 mm dailies reel
                                New piece featuring Russo about the commercial and industrial-film production company where key Night of the Living Dead filmmakers got their start
                                Two audio commentaries from 1994, featuring Romero, Russo, producer Karl Hardman, actor
                                Judith O'Dea, and more
                                Archival interviews with Romero and actors Duane Jones and Judith Ridley
