I'm in !
I've still 312 unchecked movies on The Criterion Collection, so it doesn't matter to me if Masters of Cinema is included or not.

I take it you have to watch the original Criterions (incl. the bonus features) to get a check?

I've been looking forward to this. Hoping to get a lot closer to my goal of a Silver on the Criterion list (I'm currently 35 away.)

I will do this one.

EDIT: since the vote seems to decidedly indicate "include MoC" could you add links to any relevant ICM MoC lists in the OP?

1. Metropolitan (Stillman, 1990). Mild send-up of young upper class twits (to quote Monty Python). Wish it had a lot more bite.

2. Roma (Fellini, 1972). Late Fellini has generally not been my thing, but I liked this one a lot. It reminded me of Amarcord, which I also like.

Exactly how I felt. I whined, and pouted about having to watch it like a kid going to the dentist, but eventually committed myself and really enjoyed it. One of the better Fellini's I have seen.

03. White Dog, by Samuel Fuller (1982) 8,5/10

A very ambitious and thought-provoking picture, quite moving thanks to a great score by Ennio Morricone.

04. Unfaithfully yours, by Preston Sturges (1948) 7,5/10

A true Rex Harrison show that fans will enjoy thoroughly... He threatens, pleads, cries and plays the comic all in one.
