Got Double Indemnity and Lost Weekend yesterday may have aWilder double as ive never seen a Wilder film but DI looks great.


DI is an amazing place to start for Wilder: I rewatched it this week and forgot just how fantastic the film is. Lost Weekend is my favourite of his too, but I'm saving that for the weekend!

the 3 hr Arena doc on LW should be a great watch as well.

Lost Weekend is generally on par with Double Indemnity but without the distracting flickering.

Half the booklet is taken up with an essay filled with typical film school wankery bollox, featuring their favourite hobby of ascribing homosexual subtext to films.

I made that exact same joke to my wife earlier! It was more to do with the fact that the 3 hour doc would be taking up our Sunday afternoon, but the sentiment was the same!

The PQ is a couple of notches below the best Blu-rays of that era - there's distracting flickering in the first and final reels, and a blotchy effect in some shadows that looked like a bad compression artifect.

But it's certainly perferable to a Universal DNR hackjob.


True, true. City Girl for instance is way better (although it being older). It`s not the best for sure but it`s for sure the best that the film looks and probably will ever look

Finally watched double indemnity and what a great film it is, especially the dialogue and EGRs suicide speech in particular.
btw adam you say birth of a nation is on its way at some point ( late this year, next maybe?) but do you think we'll see MoC do intolerance? and/or battleship potemkin?

watched lost weekend and really enjoyed it another great MoC release.
regarding the announcement over on the binary forums people are calling Die Nibelungen as a release as well as the already mentioned BON.
Citizen Kane maybe still not had a uk release.
btw did/do MoC have the licence for Godzilla?

Die Nibelungen was unofficially confirmed a while back. Expecting to see that for sure. Hopefully it will be spine #40, which was the one initially given to it for the DVD release which never happened. This was the artwork for that.

Kane would be one hell of a way for them to close out the Universal agreement. I own the US Box-set, but would be eager to see what MoC do with it. I do still think that Ambersons is more likely tho.

The BFI released it on DVD. Presumably they maintain the rights for any future home video release over here, as their DVD is still in print.

cheers adam.
i meant bluray forums not binary.
I want the us Kane set but a bit pricey currently. Intolerence would be a nice addition to go with birth of a nation.

I love Park Row and all - but when did it become Fuller's supreme masterpiece? It's, reportedly, his favourite film and all but the Kane stuff was hyperbole based on subject matter surely? Far too personal for that.

An interesting bunch of releases, although once they'd announced that JOAN was getting an earlier release than scheduled they could have packed up and gone home as far as I was concerned!

Don't you have the Criterion? I do like the music. Ditto Trouble in Paradise, Criterion.

Of the others, Floating Weeds is one of my least favourite Ozu so not a taker for that. Gate of Hell is interesting though - I've never seen anything to upgrade from VHS for it. Page of Madness would have been interesting though.

So..

Die Nibelungen (BD, DVD)
Park Row (DVD)
Trouble in Paradise (DVD)
The Passion of Joan of Arc (BD, DVD & Dual Format SB)
Floating Weeds (DVD, Dual Format)
Gate of Hell (DVD, Dual Format)

Plus
Soul Power (Dual Format)

Wow, Trouble in Paradise on DVD only? What a crushing disappointment. I would have been all over a Blu-ray release in a Parisian minute.

I think they said the existing film simply won't support a Blu Ray release for Trouble in Paradise.

That sounds bogus to me. The Criterion DVD was mastered from a 35mm fine grain preservation print so high quality elements are out there. Seems like penny-pinching to me.

I won't be surprised if Criterion come out with a Blu-ray in the near future, which will of course be region locked.

Traditionally MoC only work with existing transfers, unlike Criterion who produce their own. Saying that, MoC have ventured in to the world of "proper" restoration with JOAN, so I guess thats liable to change.

Ruggles of Red Gap
This film by Leo McCarey (Make Way For Tomorrow) gets its home-video debut thanks to Masters Of Cinema, right onto blu-ray. And for that we can thank them on our bare knees. What a gem this is!

The story about a butler, played by Charles Laughton, who is the bet in a poker gamble and is "lost" by his boss to an American is for the biggest part a comedy but has dramatic parts in it as well. It`s a story about humanity and hope, about class differences (wich Laughton hated in real life) and going after that would you really want. Indeed, a story about The American Dream.
In the middle of that is a brilliant scene in wich Laughton, as Englishman, recites President Lincoln`s historic Gettysburg Address to a bar full of Americans. That is the best scene of the whole film and gave me goosebumps all over.
A film that gave me a big smile on my face and left me behind with a wonderful and joyous feeling.

The Masters Of Cinema blu-ray is one of brilliant quality, with a transfer that is almost right up there with their City Girl release.
A must-own.

9,0/10

Exciting news:

Stanley Kubrick's Fear and Desire to Appear in the Masters of Cinema Series


Eureka Entertainment has announced that it is planning to release on Blu-ray director Stanley Kubrick's rarely seen first feature film Fear and Desire. The release is expected to be available online and in shops across the United Kingdom in late January 2013.

This upcoming release, which will feature the new restoration of Fear and Desire, carried out by The Library of Congress in conjunction with Kino Lorber, Inc., will be the first ever official release of the film in the United Kingdom.

Independently financed with contributions from Kubrick's family and friends in an era when an "independent cinema" was still far from the norm, FEAR AND DESIRE first saw release in 1953 at the Guild Theater in New York thanks to the enterprising distributor Joseph Burstyn. Its exhibition led Kubrick to the dazzling career and near-complete artistic freedom which to this day remains unparalleled in the annals of Hollywood history.

The film tells the story of a war waged (in the present? in the future?) between two forces... In the midst of the conflict, a plane carrying four soldiers has crashed behind enemy lines. From here out, it is kill or be killed: a female hostage is taken on account of being a potential informer; an enemy general and his aide are discovered during a scouting mission... What lies in store for this ragtag group of killers, between their perilous landing in the forest, and the final raft-float downstream... this is the tale of Kubrick's extraordinary picture.

Note: In the U.S., Fear and Desire will be released on Blu-ray by Kino Classics on October 23rd.

Eureka Entertainment announced today for release as part of its world-renowned and award-winning Masters of Cinema Series a glorious presentation of Stanley Kubrick's rarely-seen first feature film, FEAR AND DESIRE, in a new restoration carried out by The Library of Congress in conjunction with Kino Lorber, Inc. This is the first time the film will officially appear on home video in the United Kingdom, and will be released in Blu-ray and DVD editions in late January 2013.


This edition will mark the first wide-release of the only other Stanley Kubrick film which has remained nearly impossible to see in the United Kingdom -- since the 1999 re-release of the notorious A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, following the director's death.


The film tells the story of a war waged (in the present? in the future?) between two forces... In the midst of the conflict, a plane carrying four soldiers has crashed behind enemy lines.

What lies in store for this ragtag group of killers, between their perilous landing in the forest, and the final raft-float downstream... this is the tale of Kubrick's extraordinary picture.


Ron Benson, Managing Director of Eureka Entertainment stated "It is an unbelievable privilege to be able to make this thrilling film available in such an extraordinary restoration as carried out by Kino Lorber and the Library of Congress, and to present it in a form which will 'do right' by Kubrick -- that director whose exacting standards, more than any other, warrant a conscientious and superb presentation."
