Did you morons put a bullet in John Woo's head?
My, my, my, how DO these rumors get started? At least once a week, I, Jon Mulvaney (credo:
the meek shall inherit the earth) receive a letter phrased in the most indelicate of terms along
the lines of the above question. Apparently, there is an article
floating about wherein Woo is quoted as saying we dropped the ball on a proposed LD
of the title in question. Nobody here has seen the article, and a copy would be appreciated: mail to
Jon Mulvaney, Criterion, 578 Broadway, New York, NY 10012. But there's definitely
a huge misunderstanding somewhere about exactly what Criterion did in regards to this film.
Here are 3 things that we can swear are true:
1. Criterion never had rights to Bullet in the Head.
2. Criterion never recorded a commentary track for Bullet in the Head .
3. Criterion loves John Woo, and we (the staff, not my many other selves) feel Bullet in the Head is an unqualified masterpiece. Readers of this column know very well that I cannot disclose any upcoming title information, and if you don't know why, click here. What I can say is that we hear you: Bullet in the Head would make a fabulous addition to the Criterion Collection. Your love for this title is shared by us. Let's hope for the best.
