A yearly overview of the clues of upcoming titles provided by Criterion and Jason Polan in the monthly newsletter. Proudly pun-ful, characteristically corny, and always awaited with bated breath.
2009 sees plenty of clues with iconic imagery related to the movie at hand. We’re still working with pithy comments that all but give away the answer toot de suite. The clues that announce the arrival of blu upgrades are definitely a theme and we get a major indication for a non-canon box set. Oddly enough the clues only number 11 this year with a xmas themed header for December that seems to be saying “Help us move some copies of ‘Fishing with John’ and ‘Koko.’ “
