IFC and Criterion, cont'd; Plus The General on Blu-ray

As you may have already seen, ScreenDaily announced all the titles that will come from the pairing of IFC and Criterion, after Gomorrah and A Christmas Tale, of course:

Jan Troell's Everlasting Moments [Maria Larssons eviga ögonblick]
Christopher Nolan's Following
Steve McQueen's Hunger
Abdel Kechiche's The Secret of the Grain [La graine et le mulet]
Hirokazu Kore-eda's Still Walking
Olivier Assayas' Summer Hours [L'heure d'été]
Alfonso Cuarón's Y tu mamá también

That unfortunately means, likely, no Last Mistress, but at least none of the titles above are worth complaining about. In other news, Kino has announced a Blu-ray of Buster Keaton's The General for 10 November. Universal will release the fourth season of Alfred Hitchcock Presents... on 24 November, and Zeitgeist will have Jennifer Baichwal's Act of God on 26 January 2010.

I'm a bit perplexed by the inclusion of Everlasting Moments, and a little disappointed by a few missing titles--but otherwise, I'm very happy with these selections. Very pleased with Hunger, Summer Hours, and maybe Summer Hours (which I haven't seen... but, hell, I loves me some Kore-eda).

Now let's hope we get all of these sooner rather than later.
