The Criterion Collection December 2016 New Releases
This December, Criterion will finish the year with some extraordinary editions of classic and contemporary titles. The legendary Federico Fellini adds another entry to the collection with his extravagant and outrageous Roma — a spectacle-filled ode to Italy’s capital city that the director called “the most wonderful movie set in the world.” We’re also thrilled to release another deeply personal and autobiographical film: Laurie Anderson’s Heart of a Dog, the incomparable multimedia artist’s tender and provocative meditation on love and loss, and her first feature in over 30 years. Meanwhile, John Huston’s seminal The Asphalt Jungle is a masterful film noir that forever changed the heist genre and that features an all-star cast, including Sterling Hayden, Marilyn Monroe, Louis Calhern, and Sam Jaffe. All this plus a Blu-ray upgrade of Luis Buñuel’s shocking surrealist comedy The Exterminating Angel.
