Should we not be expecting "Mank" sometime soon?

Wishful thinking:

I bet they'll only announce four additional releases this month, considering they've already announced the Melvin Van Peebles box set...

Inland Empire
Los Olvidados
Mean Streets
One False Move

Solo con tu pareja [upgrade]

Watermelon Woman
Releasing Watermelon Man and Watermelon Woman in the same month feels like a bit much, even if the latter's title is a reference to the former.

It also looks like it's still with First Run Features, who AFAICT has never licensed to Criterion and released a restoration on DVD in 2017 (meaning I don't think it's likely their rights will imminently expire).

Insomnia is the only one and it is listed as under license from both First Run Features and Westchester Films.

After Hours
Eyes Wide Shut
Hard Eight
Querelle
The Wind Will Carry Us

Wishful thinking: Mindwalk (I have no idea who has the rights (I think it used to be Paramount) but Criterion should acquire them and release this--it's perfect for them and, with its focus so heavily upon ecology, perfect for the contemporary era)

Mindwalk is also broadly in step with their valuing of films that are largely activated by conversation (i.e. My Dinner with Andre, The Before Trilogy). I'd love to see it announced.

Is Ikarie XB-1 really coming? The Czech Blu-ray (which I have) and the Second Run disc are both region-free and with exclusive extras. My question would be that is it really necessary?

Very few people import discs, even if said discs are region free.
