I wouldn't be shocked, I know it is already on Filmstruck and a part of Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Project.

I'd say it's worth watching, because, even if you don't understand it, you can always admire it for its visuals.

Does anybody who owns The Thin Red Line on Criterion know if the subtitles show the names of the characters who narrate?

Yeah, it more or less went over my head but I enjoyed the visuals, music and dancing.

Yeah it's probably something very Georgian. Still it's a beautiful film and you should try and see his others. Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors shouldn't be that hard to find.

I've heard of that one before, but I have yet to watch it. Thanks for the recommendation.

It's a biography of the 18th century Armenian poet Sayat-Nova; but unlike a typical biopic, it depicts his life through a series of highly metaphorical tableaux vivants meant to recall Armenian miniatures. You have to read the movie as something like an allegorical Renaissance painting rather than a typical narrative film.

I think that Jan Troell is the only other Swede of Bergman's generation that I've seen.

Dead Man is a must. I am glad I never bought The Virgin Suicides before it got a Criterion release.
