Tis the 15th of the month, making it Happy Criterion Announcement Day! Today they've announced their line-up for March 202, and they've got several classics in store -- I already told you about their biggie, the long-awaited Wong Kar-wai boxed set back here. (Oh and Amazon has it up for-pre-order now!) But March has also got one of Mike Leigh's greatest films coming at us, Secrets & Lies from 1996, and it's also got Albert Brooks' lovely 1991 film Defending Your Life with Meryl Streep. Those are the two I have seen, and I recommend both films. The other two titles are Jacques Rivette's Céline and Julie Go Boating from 1974, one I have always been meaning to catch, and then one I have never heard of from a year earlier -- Djibril Diop Mambéty's Touki Bouki, a Senegalese "fantasy drama" about two young lovers who mean to run off to France. It sounds good! Will you be picking up any of these?

I will probably be getting Secrets and Lies. His earlier film, Grown Ups is my favorite of his. It features just the greatest ensemble acting. The ending is quite a spectacle.
