  • Last time they had a pricing error on a Criterion pre-order it was for Anatomy of a Murder and World on a Wire for $16.99 each and they honored that. But, Family Video just had a pre-order price error on Criterion's DEKALOG (also a $99.995 MSRP) and they cancelled the orders and offered to sell it to those that had pre-ordered for $55, which was their cost. I'd guess that Amazon gets a better rate than Family Video, but $39.99 would still be a loss for them.

    • Just watched DAYS OF HEAVEN for the first time on blu and it's a gloriously beautiful masterpiece. The atmosphere and visuals are stunning; I couldn't believe the sequence with the locusts. This is the best film I've seen by Terrence Malick.
      Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

      • According the the Blu-ray.com forum's Criterion's UK releases for November will be:
        Punch-Drunk Love
        Akira Kurosawa's Dreams

        • According to the Blu-ray.com review, BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS has 1080P trailers for FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! and VIXEN. (weirdly the trailers for BTVOTD are upscaled SD)

            The Before Trilogy

            • News: The Telluride Film Festival guide says that Janus films provided the 4K DCP restorations of Marcel Pagnol's Marius, Fanny and Cesar. So I'd guess that Criterion will release those on Blu-ray next year.

              Rumor: A poster on reddit says that Mosfilm emailed them and confirmed that they licensed Criterion the US and UK and Au rights to:
              Ivan's Childhood
              Andrei Rublev
              Solaris
              The Mirror
              Stalker

              Those (and Dersu Uzala) have been previously confirmed (or already released in the US by Criterion), but the UK and Au part, if true, is news.

              • But these are in the process of being released by Artificial Eye in the UK.

                • Yeah, if that email is true, all I can think is that maybe AE's rights are close to expiring and that is why they are releasing them all so fast and seem to be using older masters.

                    Haven't seen this in a long time, worth a revisit I think. I'm kind of obsessed with BADLANDS and rarely rewatch any other Malick.

                    • I recently watched The New World and despite a few reservations I liked it a lot.

                      • Criterion just posted some early Edith Head sketches from Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief on their FB page. Future release hint?
                        LA PASIÓN ESPAÑOL: THE EROTIC MELODRAMAS OF VICENTE ARANDA (1991-1999)

                        • Don't know about To Catch a Thief (they also posted a shot of the cover of the Foreign Correspondent script), but they do have the rights to some early Hitchcock (Lodger, Downhill, Sabotage, & Young and Innocent) or it could be that they reacquired Spellbound, Notorious, and Rebecca (MGM's DVDs and Blu-rays are now OOP.)

                          • Criterion is going to release the documentary David Lynch: The Art Life on Blu-ray
                            Amazon is lining up the well-received Venice Classics title for a 2017 release on its Amazon Prime service following a separate theatrical run via art-house specialists Janus Films. The film's blu-ray release will be through the Criterion Collection.

                            • Here is a short interview with Marty Gross about working with Criterion and the films of Seijun Suzuki, in it he mentions " Right now we're doing Tampopo, so I went to the museum dedicated to [the director] Juzo Itami, and I spent three days scanning photos, stills, booklets and flyers." and "I'll be working on another project with Criterion for later this year as well, but I can't talk about it yet because they haven't officially announced it."
