Criterion has announced 3 titles for March, two of which have already been available on R1 DVD before. Ang Lee's The Ice Storm, the one we all knew was coming (regretfully), will have a two disc treatment with awesome cover artwork. Hiroshi Teshigahara's Antonio Gaudi, a documentary about the famous architect, will be their second release (the film was previously available through the Milestone Collection); the disc will also include a short about Gaudi by one of my faves, Ken Russell. And, for the first time on DVD, Alberto Lattuada's dark comedy Mafioso. Rounding out the Eclipse box will be the Delirious Fictions of William Klein, which includes the satirical Who Are You Polly Maggoo?, Mr. Freedom, and The Model Couple. Would you consider it a good month if you're more excited about the Eclipse series than the Criterion releases?
