Criterion in May 2017: GHOST WORLD, Scorsese's World Cinema Project and More

It's all about the world in May for the Criterion Collection. The company announced their lineup for the month and two titles jumped out at me.

Terry Zwigoff's Ghost World is a movie I watched on multiple occasions years ago, when the world was younger. It's told in a simple yet evocative manner that resonated for me at the time, so I wonder what kind of effect it will have on me now. New interviews with the cast are included.

The other title is World Cinema Project, which is actually a collector's set of indie films from around the world. Each has been restored, with introductions by Martin Scorsese.

Other upcoming releases include Ozu's lovely Good Morning, Jacques Audiard's acclaimed Dheepan, and two versions of Orson Welles' Othello, as well as a Blu-ray version of Chantal Akerman's Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles.
