I’d double dip for any movie in my top 10. Mark me down as excited.
I can confirm that Rosemary’s Baby is coming to Criterion (hopefully by September).
Those of you who guessed correctly on the newsletter hint: give yourself a pat on the back.
Cool, thanks Santino.
I have my suspicions that Under the Blossoming Cherry Trees by Masahiro Shinoda will be out for Halloween.
I wonder if they’ll try to release Shinoda’s version of Silence in conjunction with the upcoming Scorsese adaptation. Would seem like good marketing to me.
^assuming Scorsese’s film ever actually happens (his next movie is that Wall Street film w/Leo – shocking, I know).
How can you confirm that? Are you allowed to say? And what’s with all these secretive Criterion rumor confirmations?
^^Santino has connections to the Criterion mafia.
No, I’m not allowed to say.
Can you say why you’re not allowed to say?
^^Because Santino donna wanna sleep with da fishes
Rosemary’s Baby isn’t September, it’s October. Woops. Nevermind.
Was there ever any consensus as to that little gif with three oysters w/pearls?
Ugh… I bet I will end up buying Rosemary’s Baby on blu even though I already have the dvd. :(
wasn’t that pearls of the czech new wave? I think they’re doing 2 more eclipse sets with from the new wave
Never got the fuss about Rosemary’s Baby Then again, I’m not much of a Polanski fan, so..
According to this, two new Czech New Wave eclipses are coming.
“…Criterion plans (planned?) to release two more Czech New Wave collections:
Koreny ceske nove vlny / Roots of Czech New Wave, containing:
- O necem jinem / Something Different
- Transport z raje / Transport from Paradise
- Demanty noci / Diamonds of the Night
- Krik / The Cry
- Kazdy den odvahu / Courage for Every Day
Dozvuky ceske nove vlny / Echos of Czech New Wave
- Vsichni dobri rodaci / All My Good Countrymen
- Spalovac mrtvol / The Cremator
- Ucho / The Ear
- Valerie a tyden divu / Valerie and Her Week of Wonders"
Valerie should be Blu’d. Not too familiar with the others, but Valerie should be mainlined and Blu’d.
Valerie should be lost for all time. I sure as hell wouldn’t miss it. Courage for Every Day and The Ear are on Hulu Plus, though. Maybe I’ll check ’em out.
@ takaawesome – I’m with you on Rosemary’s Baby. I like Polanski, just don’t find this one to be great. All my horror buddies where getting on me for having not seen it do I watched it finally. They all complained about the pacing and they tried to make sure if stick with it. The pacing didn’t bother me, I just didn’t care for it. The acting is cometely ridiculous.
^ I don’t think it’s great as a horror movie, but I really enjoy watching Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes on screen together. And I really love the dream sequence. And I like it as a comment on gender roles and identity.
Cassavetes was the weakest point for me. I did like Farrow though.
i love that film to bits. perhaps you’d feel differently if you’d ever given birth lol
and ruth gordon is absolutely terrifying!!
Koreny ceske nove vlny / Roots of Czech New Wave
oh wow. that’s really interesting.
sorry to interrupt, but did i see somewhere on this thread an announcement about a pierre etaix eclipse set one day, or was that just a rumour/my imagination?
I’ll be happy if they release more Czech New Wave, but kind of disappointed if they don’t mainline it.
Ruby – If I was a girl and saw it I would never have kids. And if I did I would definitely get like 100 second opinions before doing anything.
that’s my point ^ it is a horror movie
If you put it that way Ruby, I’d say Eraserhead does a solid job of dealing with those fears (even though I don’t like Lynch).
I guess Eraserhead is a horror movie for fatherhood and Rosemary’s Baby is a horror movie for motherhood.
something like that, yeah
And I will add that I find it to be the only coherent Lynch film.
