Criterion in June

Exciting news from the Criterion front for July. They will be releasing two of Dušan Makavejev's most famous films, WR: Mysteries of the Organism and Sweet Movie, long unavailable on VHS. Expect radical sexual politics abound, and if you want to get ready for them, I highly recommend his Montenegro, if you can find it anywhere from Fox Lorber. Also in June, Lindsay Anderson's controversial If..., starring Malcolm McDowell (which became forgotten in time after the release of A Clockwork Orange), Chris Marker's La jetée and Sans soleil, and Claude Berri's first film, The Two of Us (or, Le vieil homme et l'enfant).

Yeah, it's quite a month from them. Though I'm hoping that Criterion would eventually release Makavejev's Case of the Missing Switchboard Operator, which I haven't seen but I hear it's his best film.
