Curious, but wasn't I am Cuba already released by Milestone? I also am not sure whether Moses and Aaron actually was released.

Yes, Milestone has released Kalatozov's film before. But I believe the earlier DVD had Russian narration on top of the original audio. That is reportedly being corrected. And since a new negative is being used, expect a better transfer. So this is pretty much a "Criterion-esque" edition.

No word on the Straub/Huillet.

I forgot last time, and haven't been to Facets in over a week, so I have to remind myself again. Now I just have to figure out how the hell I'm going to see the rest of the Straub Hulliet films.

I hate to say it but Straub might also have to go before that happens.

I'll gladly take a retro even if incomplete. To think only one (two with Moses and Aaron) of their films is available in any format in this country just seems ridiculous.

Yes, you are completely right. But in Germany where they have been working for a significant amount of time, and made some of their finest films, NONE are available in any format...
Fortunately some of them get shown on TV or in good repertoire cinems from time to time (That's where I caught most of them).
