Ik lees net op dvd.nl dat er een 50% korting is op alle Criterions bij Barnes & Nobles.

Maar is dat wel veilig, wat de douane betreft?

(Lekker in vorm, de laatste tijd... :lol: )

Wellicht interessant voor regio-gelockte Blu-Ray kijkers - wat zijn de voorlopige en aangekondigde alternatieve Blu-Rays voor de verschenen titels bij Criterion?

Chungking Express - Artificial Eye UK
Last Year at Marienbad - Optimum/Universal UK/DE/NL?
Seventh Seal - Tartan UK

Was er geen Europese uitgave aangekondigd van Repulsion? Vind niets terug - waarschijnlijk vergis ik me.

Ugh, ik hoop zo dat een EU distributeur snel met een aankondiging voor Playtime op blu komt...

November releases:

A Christmas Tale
Synopsis

In Arnaud Desplechin's beguiling A Christmas Tale (Un conte de Noël), Catherine Deneuve brings her legendary poise to the role of Junon, matriarch of the troubled Vuillard family, who come together at Christmas after she learns she needs a bone marrow transplant from a blood relative. That simple family reunion setup, however, can't begin to describe the unpredictable, emotionally volatile experience of this film, an inventive, magical drama that's equal parts merriment and melancholy. Unrequited childhood loves and blinding grudges, brutal outbursts and sudden slapstick, music, movies, and poetry, A Christmas Tale ties it all together in a marvelously messy package.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION DOUBLE-DISC SET FEATURES:

* New, restored high-definition digital transfer, supervised by director Arnaud Desplechin
* L'aimée, Desplechin's 2007 documentary about the selling of his family home
* New documentary featuring interviews with Desplechin and actors Mathieu Amalric and Catherine Deneuve
* Original theatrical trailers
* New and improved English subtitle translation
* PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Philip Lopate

Image

Gomorrah

Synopsis

Matteo Garrone's Gomorrah is a stark, shocking vision of contemporary gangsterdom, and one of cinema's most authentic depictions of organized crime. In this tour de force adaptation of undercover Italian reporter Roberto Saviano's best-selling exposé of Naples' Mafia underworld (known as the Camorra), Garrone links five disparate tales in which men and children are caught up in a corrupt system that extends from the housing projects to the world of haute couture. Filmed with an exquisite detachment interrupted by bursts of violence, Gomorrah is a shattering, socially engaged true-crime story from a major new voice in Italian cinema.


DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES:

* New high-definition transfer, supervised and approved by director Matteo Garrone (with uncompressed stereo soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition)
* Five Stories, a 60-minute documentary on the making of Gomorrah
* New video interviews with Garrone and actor Toni Servillo
* Interviews with writer Roberto Saviano and actors Gianfelice Imparato
and Salvatore Cantalupo
* Deleted scenes
* Theatrical trailer
* PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Chuck Stephens

Image

Downhill Racer

Synopsis

Astonishing Alpine location photography and a young Robert Redford in one of his earliest starring roles are just two of the visual splendors of Michael Ritchie's visceral debut feature, Downhill Racer. In a beautifully understated performance, Redford is David Chappellet, a ruthlessly ambitious skier competing with an underdog American team in Europe for Olympic gold, and Gene Hackman provides tough support as the coach who tries to temper the upstart's narcissistic drive for glory. With a subtle screenplay by acclaimed novelist James Salter, Downhill Racer is a vivid character portrait buoyed by breathtakingly fast and furious imagery that brings the viewer directly into the mind of the competitor.



Disc Features

* New, restored high-definition digital transfer
* New video interviews with screenwriter James Salter; film editor Richard Harris; production manager Walter Coblenz; and former downhill skier Joe Jay Jalbert, who served as technical adviser, a ski double, and a cameraman
* Audio excerpts from a 1979 American Film Institute seminar with director Michael Ritchie
* Theatrical trailer
* PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Todd McCarthy

The Golden Age of Television

Synopsis

The hugely popular live American television plays of the 1950s have become the stuff of legend. Combining elements of theater, radio, and filmmaking, they were produced at a moment when TV technology was advancing and making art accessible to a newly suburban postwar demographic. These astonishingly choreographed, brilliantly acted, and socially progressive 'teleplays'

In an interview with the playlist (http://theplaylist.blogspot.com/2009/08 ... veils.html) Criterion head Jon Mulvaney gave the scoop on a few titles coming up. Theres some pretty exciting titles cropping up, no less the 25 film Kurosawa box set which sounds unprecedented for the company. Its a shame they're no longer putting out the Scorsese shorts box set, but I picked up the French release a few weeks back so its no biggie for me. The emphasis on new titles is surprising, with Revanche, Che and Hunger being mentioned. Hunger would be great to see. I already have the UK release, but if they were to include McQueen's earlier art pieces then it would be a definite buy for me.

Anyway, heres the full piece -





At the end of our interview with the Criterion Collection's Jonathan Turell, he put us in touch with Jon Mulvaney, Criterion's inside man on what the future has in store and he revealed to us exclusively, a number of Criterion titles that should be out in the near future and next year.

"The French Lieutenant's Woman" - Another selection from MGM's catalog, you can expect this from Criterion next year. Starring Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons, this film of parallel narratives contains a film-within-a-film and was nominated for five Academy Awards. Fred Zinneman, John Frankenheimer, Richard Lester and Mike Nichols all tried and failed to adapt John Fowles' tricky novel until British director Karel Reisz and celebrated writer Harold Pinter managed to wrap their brains around it.

Charlie Chaplin - Mulvaney has confirmed the circulating rumors that the Criterion Collection is in discussions to acquire the rights to the Charlie Chaplin library. There are no details on titles or release dates at this time.

"Stagecoach" - Mulvaney confirms that the John Ford title hinted at this summer in the Criterion Collection newsletter, is indeed "Stagecoach." The release of this massively influential western and beloved John Wayne film will be the first to utilize the restoration work done by UCLA.

Akira Kurosawa - Hinted in last month's newsletter, Mulvaney confirms that a massive 25 film box set is slated to be released by the end of the year and just in time for the 100th anniversary of the the Japanese grandmaster's birth in 2010.

"Revanche" - The DVD release of Janus Films' surprising acquisition of this Austrian Academy Award nominated film will be released in early 2010.

"Underworld" & "The Docks Of New York" - Though not currently on the schedule, Mulvaney confirms we can expect to see both of these long awaited Josef von Sternberg silents sometime in 2010.

Scorsese's short films - long rumored to be released soon, there are unfortunately no plans to release Martin Scorsese's early short films. We'll have to fire up the bootlegs in the interim.

IFC - "A Christmas Tale" and "Gomorrah" - both coming in November - are just two titles in a twelve-picture deal with IFC. While Mulvaney was mum on the other films in the works, we can tell you Antichrist will probably not be one of them, but let's not forget "Che" is an IFC film in case you had any doubts that the "rumors" weren't true. One of our wishes and best guesses knowing their taste? The excellent IFC film, "Summer Hours" by Oliver Assayas that seems very much up the Criterion Collection's alley. It's one our favorite films of 2009 thus far.

Warner Brothers - Despite the studio's indication in a Home Theater Forum chat earlier this year that they were discussing licensing a "limited group of titles at the behest of their respective directors", we hoped there were some Warner's titles on the way, but Mulvaney let us know there is nothing on the schedule currently.

Focus Features - A director's cut of Ang Lee's "Ride With The Devil," is also scheduled for a release in May. This is the third title licensed from Focus Features following the recently released Last Days Of Disco by Whit Stillman and Mira Nair's Monsoon Wedding which will hit shelves in October. For now, we will have to wait and see if any further titles are coming from this new relationship with Focus, but it's a promising start.

Finally, if you're heading up to the rock festival All Tomorrow's Parties in New York this year, when you're not watching David Yow showing the kids how it's done or losing your college tuition at poker to Steve Albini, be sure to stop by the Criterion curated screening room where you can see among an amazing lineup of films, including "Mystery Train" followed by a Q&A with Jim Jarmusch and Steve McQueen's acclaimed "Hunger" (another telling IFC picture, hint!). We think it's fairly safe to say these will be making their way into the collection soon as well.

But that's not all...Mulvaney did talk to us about several exciting titles that as of press time we are unable to disclose as discussions for these films are ongoing and not quite finalized. We will continue to stay in touch with the good people at Criterion and let you know as soon as we're permitted to write about it.

AK 100
25 Films by Akira Kurosawa

Synopsis

The creator of such timeless masterpieces as Rashomon, Ikiru, Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, and High and Low, Akira Kurosawa is one of the most influential and beloved filmmakers who ever lived - and for many the greatest artist the medium has known. Now, on the occasion of the centenary of his birth, the Criterion Collection is proud to present this deluxe box set celebrating his astonishing career. Featuring twenty-five of the films he made over the course of his fifty years in movies-from samurai epics to postwar noirs to Shakespeare adaptations-AK 100 is the most complete set of his works ever released in this country, and includes five rare films that have never been available on DVD.

Disc Features

* This deluxe, linen-bound collector's set includes twenty-five films and an illustrated book featuring an introduction and notes on each of the films by Stephen Prince (The Warrior's Camera: The Cinema of Akira Kurosawa) and a remembrance by Donald Richie (The Films of Akira Kurosawa).

2010 begint meteen met een geweldige maand voor Criterion:

Alle announcements:

Paris, Texas

Synopsis

German New Wave pioneer Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire) brings his keen eye for landscape to the American Southwest in Paris, Texas, a profoundly moving character study written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Sam Shepard. Paris, Texas follows the efforts of the mysterious, nearly mute drifter Travis (a magnificent Harry Dean Stanton, whose face is a landscape of its own) to reconnect with his young son, living with his brother (Dean Stockwell) in Los Angeles, and his missing wife (Nastassja Kinski). From this simple setup, Wenders and Shepard produce a powerful statement on codes of masculinity and the myth of the American family, as well as an exquisite visual exploration of a vast, crumbling world of canyons and neon.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION:

* New, restored high-definition digital transfer, supervised and approved by director Wim Wenders, with DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
* Audio commentary featuring Wenders
* Interview with Wenders by German journalist Roger Willemsen
* Excerpts from the 1990 film Motion and Emotion: The Road to 'Paris, Texas'

February titels:

Revanche

Synopsis

A gripping thriller and a tragic drama of nearly Greek proportions, Revanche is the stunning, Oscar-nominated international breakthrough of Austrian filmmaker Götz Spielmann. In a ragged section of Vienna, hardened ex-con Alex (the mesmerizing Johannes Krisch) works as an assistant in a brothel, where he falls for Ukrainian hooker Tamara. Their desperate plans for escape unexpectedly intersect with the lives of a rural cop and his seemingly content wife. With meticulous, elegant direction, Spielmann creates a tense, existential, and surprising portrait of vengeance and redemption, and a journey into the darkest forest of human nature, in which violence and beauty exist side by side.

Disc Features

DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION

* New, restored high-definition digital transfer, approved by director Götz Spielmann (with DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition)
* New video interview with Spielmann
* The Making of 'Revanche'
