MIA List Update

It's officially 2008, and of the surplus of titles I listed for MIA in 2008 on Region 1 disc, only nine have so far been announced. I also noticed that I included the films Mother Joan of the Angels and Amos Gitai's Promised Land on the list even though they had already been released in the US (albeit by lousy studios, Polart and Sisu, respectively). The titles you can cross off the list are as follows:

I Live in Fear - dir. Akira Kurosawa - Eclipse/Criterion
Le bonheur - dir. Agnès Varda - Criterion
She's Gotta Have It - dir. Spike Lee - MGM
Détective - dir. Jean-Luc Godard - Lionsgate
Passion - dir. Godard - Lionsgate
Hélas pour moi - dir. Godard - Lionsgate
Fiorile - dir. the Taviani brothers - Koch Lorber
The Kingdom 2 - dir. Lars von Trier, Morten Arnfred - Koch Lorber
Lost Highway - dir. David Lynch - Universal

If you have a region-free player, a couple other titles have been announced for Region 2, including Alain Resnais' Je t'aime, je t'aime (08/01), Jacques Rivette's L'amour par terre (25/02), Victor Sjostrom's The Phantom Carriage (11/02), and Nagisa Oshima's Cruel Story of Youth, retitled Naked Youth in the UK (25/02)
