Cohen puts out Wind Will Carry Us, and if its like the other Cohen Media Group/Film Collection releases, its a bit better on transfer and a bit worse on extras than Criterion. If I had a choice whether I'd prefer Cohen or Criterion to put out the balance of, say, Claire Denis's backcatalogue on Blu-ray, I'd lean Cohen.

have you seen the Cohen edition of Intolerance? I've had that sitting around for a couple years now, 'never enough time' etc. but I've been thinking about it lately

Not sure which thread to put this on but just noticed the reveal of the photo of Maurice Chevalier when the old guy picks up the guitar at the beginning of Quai des Orfèvres.

Yeah that’s what I’ve always thought

curious about the next Eclipse set

flappy bird, Wednesday, 27 March 2019 00:41 (four months ago) link

two weeks pass...

JULY: 1984 (Radford); The Baker's Wife; Klute; Europa Europa, an upgrade of Do The Right Thing; and a reissue of The BRD Trilogy.

So does this stuff all go straight to streaming or...?

i believe that (s)he is sincere (forksclovetofu), Monday, 15 April 2019 22:08 (four months ago) link

Not automatically. Some will, some won't. For some they'll get a short-term streaming deal but not a permanent addition to the streaming collection (cf In a Lonely Place, The In-Laws, and numerous others).

one month passes...

AUGUST: The Koker Trilogy; The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice; The Inland Sea; and upgrades of Magnificent Obsession and An Angel At My Table.

Also: The Ozu features a bonus film, What Did The Lady Forget?, that he made in the 30s.

The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice is playing here in a couple weeks, I thought this part of the description was hilarious: "This is considered one of Ozu's more active films - for example, there are car rides."

flappy bird, Wednesday, 15 May 2019 23:31 (three months ago) link

not mad at a Magnificent Obsession upgrade, but I'm really loosing my patience waiting on a Written on the Wind blu ray.

methanietanner, Thursday, 16 May 2019 00:06 (three months ago) link

Same. But glad to know that eventually all three of them will be getting an upgrade now.

has anyone seen The Inland Sea?

Maybe it's [Prince] Sign of the Tides?

god I hope so

Signs are pointing to Babs, sadly.

Polyester comes w/a Odorama© card, BTW.

Looks like i'm getting a new copy of Polyester then

that's the best

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 17 June 2019 21:40 (two months ago) link

I have a Polyester/Desperate Living set that's gone missing. If I can't find it soon, I may have to get this too.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 17 June 2019 22:56 (two months ago) link

Killer cover

flappy bird, Tuesday, 18 June 2019 00:57 (two months ago) link

I hear Local Hero comes with oil stock

Polyester is in the running for my favorite CC cover of all time.

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 02:09 (two months ago) link

it's great

other faves: house, repulsion, complete tati. worst: badlands, naked.

no delivery to Canada this time :( :(

Everyone going nuts for the Criterion sale at B+N should know they’re also doing Arrow Films half off as well, your chance to get KHRUSTALYOV MY CAR, DISTANT VOICES / STILL LIVES, PULSE, and the Rivette Box Set.

Rumor has it that a Godzilla announcement will be dropping next week, presumably in re: a massive set of the Toho material that's been on Filmstruck/Criterion Channel for some time.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Sunday, 14 July 2019 15:32 (one month ago) link

Also lots of speculation that they'll announce, tomorrow, the 1,000th spine number which people seem convinced will be Citizen Kane.

Pauline Male (Eric H.), Sunday, 14 July 2019 15:40 (one month ago) link

To all of you patiently waiting for our October announcement, we're sorry for the delay. We will be announcing tomorrow—stay tuned!

Wong Kar-wai's birthday today - boxset?

flappy bird, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 17:16 (one month ago) link

OCTOBER: Matewan; When We Where Kings; and Blu upgrades of Haxan and the Von Sternberg Silents box.

NO SPINE #1000 (YET)

haha wtf

flappy bird, Thursday, 18 July 2019 16:19 (one month ago) link

When We Where Kings has Soul Power as a bonus film.

frustration and wonky passion (C. Grisso/McCain), Thursday, 18 July 2019 16:21 (one month ago) link

Whew, I'd been right on the verge of picking up Haxan on the assumption that no upgrade was on the horizon. The rare occasion when I've avoided getting punked by Criterion announcing a release that I've literally just bought.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Thursday, 18 July 2019 16:25 (one month ago) link

According to a poster on the Criterion Forum, #1000 should be announced next week (probably the Godzilla box).
