^  Yes! Waiting for this! However, Criterion should have used this opportunity to shift to real 4K discs. Wong Kar Wai's gorgeous visuals should look wonderful in true 4K UHD.

Wait for the 50% sales. Barnes & Noble have them twice a year. The last one just ended. The next one is around November, near Christmas. And the Criterion site have periodical 24 hour flash sales.

I hope this isn't just a rumor:

We’re also hearing that a new 4K restoration of Miloš Forman’s Amadeus (1984) might be coming in the months ahead from Criterion, licensed to them by Warner Bros. This would include at least the theatrical version, which Forman ultimately considered to be his official director’s cut. (What’s been commonly known as the director’s cut was apparently felt by Forman to be a “DVD Cut” only.)
