themessiah -> New Masters of Cinema Titles (31/7/2006 12:13:43 AM)

After Criterion, there is of course Euerka's Masters of Cinema, and I've just heard about some new titles; most of them are already avlaible on Criterion, however, the Criterion titles are pretty old and hardly have any special features. Although there could be a better prints...  I will keep you fellas posted when I find out more.

Rather interesting.....




Jasiri -> RE: New Masters of Cinema Titles (31/7/2006 9:12:30 AM)

The artwork  for Meshi is a bit garish but I can live with that,the Mikio Naruse boxset is my most highly anticipated release in a long time,by reputation considered one of the true greats of the golden age of Japanese cinema alongside his contemporaries Mizoguchi and Ozu but none of his films has been released on dvd with English subtitles before.

Been meaning to update the list in the other thread but anyway there's been quite a few interesting bits of news and rumour concerning MoC.Georg Wilhelm Pabst's Diary of a Lost Girl has been announced as well and if the list which was on wikipedia is to believed and since it contained titles like Grey Gardens and Salesman which have since been annouced it seems genuine enough then the next few releases could be.

Fritz Lang -Woman in the Moon and Die Nibelungen
F.W.Murnau -Nosferatu and Tabu
Claude Lanzmann-Shoah
Masahiro Shinoda-Silence

The most exciting piece of speculation/rumour for me is it looks increasingly likely that the mystery release of 9 films from one director is going to be from Kenji Mizoguchi.[sm=51.gif]






themessiah -> RE: New Masters of Cinema Titles (31/7/2006 10:05:01 AM)

I know Nosferatu is on their back list for possibly late next year, but it might be put back even further, as there were plans for a Dr Mabuse boxset, but that has been put for around the same time also. And as for Die Nibelungen, I heard there will no release until (at least) 2008 as the new restortation won't be finished til mid 2007.  




Jasiri -> RE: New Masters of Cinema Titles (31/7/2006 10:49:17 AM)

Looks like a bit of a wait for Die Nibelungen then but good to know it's in the pipeline though.I though the Dr Mabuse thing was just going to be a straight switch of The Gambler and The Testament from the Eureka label to MoC although I suppose at least they will be working on their booklets.Speaking of which I thought the Kwaidan one was nice but they have really outdone themselves with the Buster Keaton release a 212 page book.

Just noticed that the Masters of Cinema number 31: F For Fake will have the same print as the region 1 Criterion dvd... so that's pretty good as the print is superb; but still waiting on the features...has anyone heard about the features; was thinking that they would possibly use the same features on Criterion, but what would be exciting about that. 




directorscut -> RE: New Masters of Cinema Titles (1/8/2006 5:07:39 PM)

I know what's going on my Christmas list!




Jasiri -> RE: New Masters of Cinema Titles (1/8/2006 5:20:53 PM)

Just read something from Nick Wrigley this morning saying they had just recorded a new commentary and there would be more to follow.The tried to get an earlier documentary about the forger Elmyr,some of which I understand is incorporated into this but it was going to cost more than F for Fake itself.




themessiah -> RE: New Masters of Cinema Titles (2/8/2006 7:39:33 PM)

Seeing that I have posted the Grey Gardens and Salesman DVDs on here... I might as well say that both are being screened on BBC4 next week starting with...

And then

Jasiri -> RE: New Masters of Cinema Titles (4/8/2006 2:37:48 PM)

Good to know,they sound interesting,Grey Gardens in particular but with my ever expanding to buy list there's no way I'd ever buy it.

Brilliant! Thanks for the info.
Wherever possible I try not to blind-buy documentaries.

Looking at the story line, this one looks interesting as well:

[img]http://www.eurekavideo.co.uk/moc/nav/033l.jpg[/img]

SHOESHINE (Vittorio De Sica, 1946)

Directed by Vittorio De Sica (Bicycle Thieves, Umberto D), Shoeshine was filmed on location in postwar Rome using non-professional actors. It was inspired by the real stories of those struggling to overcome the oppressive forces of a corrupt and ineffective political system.

De Sica's film depicts the troubled lives of two young boys caught up in the chaos of a world plagued by poverty and unemployment. Giuseppe (Rinaldo Smordoni) and Pasquale (Franco Interlenghi) work on the street, where they shine the shoes of American troops. They dream of a better life, seeking solace in a horse that they ride to escape their harsh reality. When the boys are implicated in a petty crime, they are punished by the society that has robbed them of their innocence, resulting in tragic consequences.

Shoeshine is widely regarded as one of the finest films to have emerged from the Italian neorealist cinema. It was also the first foreign film to receive an Oscar. "The high quality of this motion picture," noted the Academy, "brought to eloquent life in a country scarred by war, is proof to the world that the creative spirit can triumph over adversity." On the film's 60th anniversary, The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Shoeshine for the first time on DVD in the UK.

# Full length audio commentary by Bert Cardullo (author of Vittorio De Sica: Director, Actor, Screenwriter)

Make no mistake I'm buying Shoeshine.
 
Thanks for reminding me (and other De Sica fans on this thread).

directorscut -> RE: New Masters of Cinema Titles (6/8/2006 1:57:00 PM)

Did Welles sell his eyes to fund that film?




Explosion in the Sky -> RE: New Masters of Cinema Titles (6/8/2006 8:37:22 PM)

Never seen F For Fake, is it worth picking up? All I know it's a mockumentary based on Welles' own career.

TheGodfather -> RE: Even More New Masters of Cinema Titles (28/8/2006 5:06:55 PM)

Nosferatu might well be worth a purchase [:)]
And maybe Shoah, but I`m not so sure I`ll watch it more than once. So I`m not sure I`ll be getting that one [:D]




Jasiri -> RE: Even More New Masters of Cinema Titles (28/8/2006 9:31:40 PM)

Die Nibelungen and Silence are the two I'm most interested in.Best news of all though is the Mizoguchi speculation coming true,8 titles confirmed  for release in 2007.

Miss Oyu
Ugetsu Monogatari
Gion Festival Music
Sansho Dayu
The Woman of Rumour
Chikamatsu Monogatari
Empress Yang Kwei Fei
Street of Shame

Forgot to add Josef Von Sternberg's The Blue Angel is also mentioned as coming in 2007 in the new catologue.There's a link to a pdf of the catalogue in the Mizoguchi thread in the World Cinema forum.

I wonder what that'll be like. The BFI version is better than the last Eureka release of it.

New score?

Can't be sure, the only problem is that the BFI one has been out of print for nearly two years now; but the BFI version was far better.. I'll try and found out in the next few days who is doing the score, I doubt they will keep the score which was on the last 2 disc set.




themessiah -> RE: Even More New Masters of Cinema Titles (3/9/2006 12:15:22 PM)

Have found out that the Nosferatu version is going to be 2 discs... like the Faust version which is now avaliable; and because that much of the film had external shots, there are rumours of a location comparsion.....




themessiah -> RE: New Masters of Cinema Titles (3/9/2006 12:56:05 PM)

Euerka seem to be having problems with the cover fo F for Fake: Here's somemore of their designs at the moment...

http://www.mastersofcinema.org/misc/MoC_CAT2.pdf

enjoy




Jasiri -> RE: The New Site (19/9/2006 3:14:22 PM)

The new MoC series site is finally up and it looks great,complete with trailers for the films.

http://www.eurekavideo.co.uk/moc/

Reading the news bit I really hope that's not a typo where it says the Mikio Naruse set will include a 180 page book,it was originally anounced as a 70 odd page booklet like the Kwaidan one.
