On the subject of the August criterion releases, I'm surprised and a little disappointed that only Woman in the Dunes is receiving an upgrade and not the other two movies in the previously released Teshigahara trilogy. I know the deformed once-beautiful woman subplot in The Face of Another is a little heavy-handed and pretentious, but I think it's some kind of masterpiece in spite of that. Pitfall is also a really worthy movie as well.
I don't care much for Pitfall, but I am fond of The Face of Another. But what's that other Teshigahara from that era that Criterion never released? A Ruined Map? I've never seen it. That's the one I really wish they'd bring out.

August:


So this is coming out on BD? Shocked
This might be my favorite AW.

I'm aware that the film was shot in soft focus but if memory serves the DVD showed artifacts of a low bit rate.
It would be great to be assured that the next release was as good as it gets.

About Cohen...I think his music is essential to the down-beat vibe of the film...it wouldn't be as great without it.
After my last viewing (a few years ago) it occurred to me it must have inspired the odd music in KEOMA.

I'd like to see that one as well, and I wonder if his other stuff is worth exploring. I've heard mixed things and may have seen something years ago without subs that I barely remember.

Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre. What did you think of the script?

Cheers, CJ.
I assume you're talking about a KEOMA BD/DVD commentary.

I never understood the musical choices in KEOMA until I last revisited McCabe.
I felt like I found the smoking gun. Smiley

BD street date has moved to Oct. 11. That is all.

I wonder if the delicateness of Vilmos Zsigmond's cinematography is proving to be more than they bargained for...

More likely the delay is caused by one or more of the supplements.

Yup - probably. I hope they do a good job with this one.

This was on TCM last week.
Unfortunately my provider doesn't offer the channel in HD so I didn't check it out.

This will hopefully be the best release of the year for me.

My understanding is that TCM HD is usually more like an enhanced SD anyway. I used to have "TCM HD" when I lived elsewhere with a different provider, but now only have the SD option. With full-screen (1.33:1) it makes no difference really. With anything wide-screen, the most annoying thing is having to zoom in on the image - that is what really degrades the quality. Having said that, it is still eminently watchable.
