Criterion usually announces their new titles on the 15th of every month like clockwork, as we duly keep track of, but I guess they wanted to give last week's Frederico Fellini boxed-set news room to breathe because the rest of their November announcement is only coming at us today, the 18th of the month. But they are Criterion, they are forgiven. Honestly they could give us new announcements every single day of the month and we'd post about them, as long as that meant they released hundreds of new movies per month, which we would also be here for.
Anyway! The rest of the November titles, besides that dreamy Fellini, include Martin Scorsese's latest masterpiece The Irishman (which I reviewed at the NYFF last year right here) they include Norman Jewison's romantic comedy Cher classic Moonstruck, they include Claudia Weill's 1978 NYC independent flick Girlfriends, and they include Jim Jarmusch's Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai. I have seen the first two (I only saw Moonstruck for the first time about four months ago!) but not the latter -- anybody fans of them? Girlfriends sounds like something I'd like, but I'm a mixed-bag when it comes to Jarmusch movies and Ghost Dog has never appealed.
