For the most part, The Criterion Collection tends to serve up four or five films each month, and perhaps something in their Eclipse line of down and dirty releases. But this October, they've got something coming that's so big, they've drawn back on anything else except for one seminal western and the reissue of a classic thriller.

The Criterion Collection October 2014

For the most part, The Criterion Collection tends to serve up four or five films each month, and perhaps something in their Eclipse line of down and dirty releases. But this October, they've got stuff coming that's so big, they're keeping the focus where it should be, rather than spreading themselves too thin.

First up is "The Complete Jacques Tati," which as the title suggests, will feature his six feature length films — "Jour de fête," "Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday," "Mon oncle," "PlayTime," "Trafic," and "Parade" — along with seven short films as well. Needless to say this has all been beautifully restored, and yes, it will be coming absolutely packed with extras. This thing will be teeming with documentaries, archival interviews, visual essays and much, much, much, more. It's everything you could want as a Tati fan or newcomer alike, so get on it.

A bonafide classic, Criterion has finally got their mitts on "La Dolce Vita" and are giving it the treatment to Frederico Fellini's iconic film. That means a new transfer, fresh interviews, visual essays and more. If you haven't seen this, now you have no excuse at all, so make sure this is on your list.

Meanwhile, Criterion is also bringing John Ford's "My Darling Clementine" to home video. It will feature both the 103 minute pre-release version and the 97 minute theatrical cut, the 1916 short "A Bandit's Wagon" featuring Ford and his brother in the lead roles, and a plethora of vintage material.

Finally, the boutique label is putting a new coat of paint on George Sluzier's "The Vanishing."
