Criterion Launches "Bottle Rocket"

Criterion's new slate has been announced and they have finally picked up Wes Anderson's first film Bottle Rocket. The Darjeeling Limited, Anderson's latest film— and one of his best— has only gotten a standard DVD release to-date.

Also, I was happy to see Criterion's first Martin Ritt title— The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965). This may be a good sign that Ritt's other masterpieces, such as Hud (1963) and The Front (1976) might be in consideration.

Additionally, Criterion has now officially announced the first titles they are releasing in Blu-Ray: Bottle Rocket, Chunking Express, The Third Man, The Man Who Fell to Earth, and The Last Emperor.
