Must admit that first thing that sprang to my mind was 2001, too... but I was pretty sure it was wrong.

Now I just got very excited!!! La Haine on Criterion! I'm one of those who haven't got the special edition so I am looking very forward to this one! Also to Overlord, but I knew about that already. I'm also excited to hear that (maybe) Ivan's Childhood might get a Criterion release one day as that's another one I have on my wish list but not forked out for yet. And come on more Eisenstein!

If The Holy Mountain is the Leni Riefenstahl one, I won't be picking that up as my MoC release is brilliant.

What a strange cover for La Haine though... !

Most interesting thing about this for me is the inclusion of Kon Ichikawa's Fires on the Plain.This was one of the films from Ichikawa that Criterion released on laserdisc none of which have so far appeared on dvd but this would suggest a release of this is coming.



Did anyone get this, out of interest?  I guess it's too much to hope it will come down in price anytime soon.

I don't know. The covers are becoming a bit too purposely esoteric and photoshoped for my liking.
 
I'll probably get The Third Man.
 
I'll wait for the MoC release of Sansho before buying.
 
Vengeance is Mine doesn't look like a patch on the MoC disc.

Four great films but the Imamura's a disappointment for me was really hoping that Pigs & Battleships or at least another of his unavailable films would be up next on Criterion,oh well roll on the Eclipse set..The MoC release of Vengeance is Mine is excellent,there's no way the film will look any better,extras wise the interview with Imamura sounds cool but there's no running time yet and the MoC has a Tony Rayns commentary.
Similarly the BFI release of L' Armee des ombres is also very good,the transfer is excellent and it has the Ginette Vincendeau commentary and a couple of the other extras mentioned on the Criterion.
Great to see Sansho getting a worthy release,sure it will be a vast improvement on the Films Sans Frontiers disc and I'm desperate to see it in a clean,sharp transfer but I'll be picking up the MoC boxset regardless of what comes out first because I'm also after the other films that will be in the set but for anybody who doesn't want to fork out for the set it's brilliant news.

As for the covers it's not something I normally bother much about but apart from The Third Man they are pretty awful.Think Sansho the Bailiff would look a lot better if it was just the background picture of Kinuya Tanaka and the swastika on L' Armee des ombres makes it look tacky.

Thanks for keeeping us (or at least me ) updated on upcoming Crits, TheGodfather! All essential purchases for me there, apart from The Third Man which I already have - and I can't be bothered to double dip on *everything*.

I don't already own MoC's Vengeance Is Mine so I might as well pick up the Criterion unless the reviews make MoC come out on top. And I have to get my hands on When A Woman Ascends The Stairs, too.

Agree with Jasiri, the cover art doesn't impress me either, particularly Sansho and L'Armee are pretty crap! Don't mind Vengeance though.

Pherlygwen,thought you'd be happy to see Sansho Dayu was coming,if you're thinking about getting Vengeance is Mine it's hard to see past the MoC,flawless transfer and you should be able to it pick up for about £10.

Don't think anybody has mention these yet,all coming in March.



"There are eight million stories in the Naked City,” as the narrator immortally states at the close of this breathtakingly vivid film—and this is one of them. Master noir craftsman Jules Dassin and newspaperman-cum-producer Mark Hellinger's dazzling police procedural was shot entirely on location in New York City, as influenced by Italian neorealism as American crime fiction. A double Academy Award winner, The Naked City remains a benchmark for naturalism in noir, living and breathing in the promises and perils of the Big Apple, from its lowest depths to its highest skyscrapers.

Special Features

• New, restored high-definition digital transfer
• Audio commentary by screenwriter Malvin Wald
• An analysis of the film's New York locations by Celluloid Skyline author James Sanders
• A new video interview with NYU film professor Dana Polan
• Footage of Jules Dassin from his 2003 appearance at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
• Theatrical trailer
• Stills gallery
• PLUS: A new essay by Luc Sante and production notes from producer Mark Hellinger to Dassin



An Imperial Japanese Army regiment surrenders to British forces in Burma at the close World War II and finds harmony through song. A corporal, thought to be dead, stumbles upon spiritual enlightenment disguising himself as a Buddhist monk. Magnificently shot in hushed black and white, Kon Ichikawa's The Burmese Harp is an eloquent meditation on beauty coexisting with death and remains one of Japanese cinema's most overwhelming antiwar statements, both tender and brutal in its grappling with Japan's wartime legacy.

Special Features

• New, restored high-definition digital transfer
• New video interviews with director Kon Ichikawa and actor Rentaro Mikuni
• Original theatrical trailer
• New and improved English subtitle translation
• PLUS: A new essay by renowned critic and historian Tony Rayns




An agonizing portrait of desperate Japanese soldiers stranded in a strange land during World War II, Kon Ichikawa's Fires on the Plain is a compelling descent into psychological and physical oblivion. Denied hospital treatment for tuberculosis and cast off into the unknown, Private Tamura treks across an unfamiliar Filipino landscape, encountering an increasingly debased cross-section of Imperial Army soldiers, who eventually give into the most terrifying craving of all. Grisly yet poetic, Fires on the Plain is one of the most powerful works from one of Japanese cinema's most versatile filmmakers.

Special Features

• New, restored high-definition digital transfer
• New video introduction by Japanese film scholar Donald Richie
• New video interviews with director Kon Ichikawa and actor Mickey Curtis
• Original theatrical trailer
• New and improved English subtitle translation
• PLUS: A new essay by film critic Chuck Stephens


The Naked City and the other forthcoming Jules Dassin film Brute Force look very tempting.Out of the two Kon Ichikawa titles I'll definitely pick up Fires on the Plain at some point,Burmese Harp I've seen before,very good even if it is a little idealistic.There's a review on dvdbeaver of the Fires on the Plain disc from the Janus boxset.

I loved The Burmese Harp and have been wanting to see Fires on the Plain ever since.
 
I'll probably pass on The Burmese Harp as the version I have already looks pretty darn good. Maybe if it had a commentary...
 
Maybe MoC might be able to get hold of these films and do something more extensive.

Except for Vengeance is Mine, I`1l be getting all those 3 releases. Looking forward to Sansho. Since I saw Ugetsu Monogatari (wich is utter brilliance) I always wanted to see more of Mizoguchi`s work

I'm going to have to hold off on that just now. Hopefully it's just people presuming because I can't find any word from BFI about it but I keep reading comments about them releasing their Mikio Naruse titles (When A Woman Ascends The Stairs,Floating Clouds,Late Chrysanthemums) in a box set so I'm going to have to wait and see if they will be available individually or only in the set.
BFI are a label that annoy me at times  and here's another example,read something yesterday from somebody who emailed them asking about the Naruse dvds in December,the reply he got was "There will be some Mikio Naruse releases in 2007",pathetic response.I can't see them coming anytime soon either,they submitted the films for rating to the BBFC for theatrical release over a year ago with a scheduled late 2006 release with the dvds to follow early 2007 but haven't found anything to indicate they've been screened anywhere yet.

As I was thoroughly pleased with my first Criterion purchase (the Seven Samurai set), I'm now looking into purchasing Throne of Blood. But should I buy the current release, or are they re-releasing this also?

Can anybody tell me whether the Yojimbo/Sanjuro set is worth getting if I already own the UK BFI editions? As much as I enjoyed both films I don't want to purchase the same films twice if there's no point.

Early Spring
Tokyo Twilight
Equinox Flower
Late Autumn
The End of Summer

 
I'll definitely keep my eye on this. To get Tokyo Twilight, Equinox Flower and Late Autumn from Tartan would cost about £40.

All depends really on whether you're happy enough with the image quality of the BFI,the new ones are cleaner and sharper but from memory while the BFI aren't great they're not really awful either.Criterion have also added the respective It is Wonderful to Create documentaries from Toho,45 minutes for Yojimbo,35 for Sanjuro and commentaries from Stephen Prince but again it really depends on  your level of interest in the films and Kurosawa in general whether they are much of a selling point.

Early Spring
Tokyo Twilight
Equinox Flower
Late Autumn
The End of Summer



I'd rather have seen a set of Ozu's silent/early talkies I'm sure one will come eventually but probably after I've bought all the Panorama ones,just hope this isn't an indiction of what we can expect for Mizoguchi,a set of later films would seem pretty pointless where as a set of films from the 30's would be priceless.
All that aside it's a very impressive set,haven't seen Early Spring or Late Autumn but both are generally well thought of and the three I've seen are excellent,Tokyo Twilight possibly being my favourite of Ozu's films.

Apart from giving us sought after films from very well know directors,I think Eclipse is going to prove to be a invaluable source of less well known but very worthwhile films,the 4th set of three films from Raymond Bernard ( Les Miserables,Wooden Crosses and an as yet unannounced title) looks like a prime example of this.

My only disappointment with the boxset looking at those titles (apart from the lack of extras :-P) is the inclusion of The End of Summer which I already have as part the AE Japanese Masters boxset (which I already double dipped on Floating Weeds for). Man do I hate overlaps.

I already own the Criterion release of Yojimbo (a terrific film btw!!) and Sanjuro on BFI (which I haven't watched yet) but will get the Criterion double feature set sooner or later. Thought of selling off the ones mentioned, but hubby doesn't want me to sell any Criterion DVD even if I double dip so I am going to be nice and obey.

I agree with Jasiri - I'd rather want a set of early Ozu and Mizoguchi, too. Perhaps one day...

I'm only bothered because I just got Tartan's Ozu vol 3 which includes Equinox Flower & Tokyo Twilight for Christmas, glad I cancelled my preorder for vol 4.If I pick up this set I'll have three Tokyo Twilight discs,think I will though as I've always held off buying Panorama's Early Spring because apparently it's about the worst of their Ozu discs which is saying something and there's a R4 release of An Autumn Afternoon so that would round out Tartan's vol 4 set.
Since this set is titled Late Ozu and from what they said the purpose of Eclipse was,I'd think it's almost certain that there will be least one set of earlier titles at some point,a silent film set of Walk Cheerfully,I Flunked But...,The Lady and the Beard,I Was Born, But... and Tokyo Chorus all of which are currently unavailable would be superb and then there are still great films like An Inn in Tokyo,The Only Son,There Was a Father,A Hen in the Wind etc.that are rarely seen because they're are only available on fairly poor Hong Kong discs.

That Third Man release is pretty much a dead certain purchase for me, masterful film that I really need to watch again soon. Think I might watch my single disk R2 version, sell it and preorder this potential beauty

Apologies for the delay in response.
We will be releasing an Ophuls box in late 2007/early 2008. It will contain several films, including THE EARRINGS OF MADAME DE . . AND LA PLAISIR.
I hope that helps.
Thanks for your interest in Criterion.

Best regards,

Might be nice to know

Also seems to be confirmation of Ace in the Hole (Billy Wilder),Permanent Vacation,Stranger Than Paradise (Jim Jarmusch),Le feu follet (Louis Malle) and Martin Scorsese short films.

Good to see more Louis Malle being added,I love Le feu follet.

Ivan's Childhood?? I couldn't be more pleased if the sun shone the whole summer!!!
That's one Tarkovsky film I still have on my wist list rather than on my shelves. Yay!

Oh sh*t, that sounds too good to be true
Always good to see more of Louis Malle, but more than that I`m really interested in the Scorsese shots
Bring `em on
