I saw that re-release too. I was so happy to see this film on a big screen.

Criterion is on a roll lately. They're releasing another Mizoguchi film(Sansho The Balif), and Vengeance is Mine (Imamura), and If...

Army of Shadows was recently reviewed by Ebert. Maybe that's the reason it got its release on DVD.

Actually, this is looking to be The Year of Melville. Rumor has it that Criterion will also release LES ENFANTS TERRIBLES in July, and Masters of Cinema (R2) has already announced that it is bringing out Le Silence de la Mer.

I also saw Army of Shadows in the theater last year and am looking forward to the DVD release.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

Les Enfants Terribles is good. I look forward to that.
