New Yorker is definitely a war criminal when it comes to DVD releases. Though here are some corrections:

La Chinoise and Made in U.S.A. are both criterion properties.

These are all Janus/Criterion:
Simon of the Desert [Simón del desierto] - dir. Luis Buñuel - Mexico - UNK
Feut follet, Le - dir. Louis Malle - France/Italy - New Yorker
Autumn Afternoon, An - dir. Yasujuro Ozu - Japan - New Yorker
Exterminating Angel, The [Ángel exterminador, El] - dir. Luis Buñuel - Mexico - Criterion?
Paris nous appartient - dir. Jacques Rivette - France - UNK
Zazie dans le métro - dir. Louis Malle - France - New Yorker

Janus bought a bunch of New Yorker titles at one point, though mostly just the Ozus and the Malles.

Dare I add a few more titles to your list:

Red Desert
The Nun
Skidoo
Don't Drink the Water

I didn't include Red Desert because it has been available previously (same for Last Year at Marienbad), but you know I'm pining for a new version of it more than just about every film I've listed thus far.

One more title for 1962: Proces de Jeanne d'Arc

Joe said...

Proces de Jeanne d'Arc has already made the "whoops, forgot-aboutchu" list. But thanks!

Dear Josephus,

I had the chance to see Je t'aime, Je t'aime today, introduced by Jean-Michel Frodon (!), editor of Cahiers. Oh. My. God. There was a talk with Arnaud Desplechin afterwards, but I had to leave because I was crying.
