Criterion Watch, September 2008 Edition

Whew... finally. Took long enough, but the power is now back on in my apartment following the great Columbus blackout of '08. And just in time for this month's edition of Criterion Watch too! Not many new titles were announced today, but they're a couple of intriguing ones.

This has been in the pipeline for a while now, so this isn't a surprise, but it'll be nice to finally see if its warrants its reputation(s). Plus, Fuller, I mean, duh.
This is one that LVT fans have eagerly awaited for a while. And for good reason- I don't think it's one of Von Trier's best movies by any means, but it's a treat nonetheless. If I'm not mistaken, it's only been available on pan and scan video for some time, and take it from someone who knows- this is one of those movies that needs to be seen in widescreen. Oh... and does this mean it'll take another half-dozen years for Criterion to release Epidemic?
Finally, this clue was one of the easier ones for me, yet it stumped a lot of astute moviegoers I know. See if you can guess (click the image for the answer).

Since it's coming out in February, it should make a good birthday present. Hint, hint.

I don't understand why there's a bear. The lamb, sure.

White Dog has its problems, but the movie's really kinda jawdropping. Glad it's finally out on DVD.
