The joy of loving is to live in a world of Mandom


« : October 27, 2013, 12:46:16 PM »

NYC viewers, the following Italian films are coming to our area (all in Italian w/ Eng. subs):

Oct. 31 MoMA Red Desert (4:30)
                     Lucky Luciano (7:00)

Nov. 1  MoMA Hands Over the City (5:00)
                     The Magliari (7:30)

Nov. 3  MoMA Hands Over the City (2:00)
                     Lucky Luciano (4:45)

Nov. 4 MoMA The Magliari (4:00)

Nov. 6, 7, 8 MoMA The Leopard (all at 1:00/ 184 min.)

Nov. 22 - 28 FilmForum Sandra (4K Restoration)

Jan. 8 - 16   FilmForum Il Sorpasso (DCP Restoration)

The last is a Dino Risi film, to be introduced by titoli himself! (OK, that last part is a lie. But I'm sure he'll be present in spirit).

Never had the guts to watch Sandra (of vourse they had to change the title, a verse from a Leopardi's poem. But as it sounds like a title apt for the grindhouse citcuit, I wonder if in USA the movie was distributed with added soft-core scenes).
Il sorpasso is by many (probably most) considered as THE greatest italian comedy ever. It isn't, in my opinion: but it is a great movie. I magliari is a minor Rosi effort, so is the biopic on Luciano.

This doesn't look all that hot, maybe titoli can comment: http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=12502

Good or bad, since Janus has picked it up, it's certain to be a Criterion Blu-ray in 2014.

Jan. 8 - 16   FilmForum Il Sorpasso (DCP Restoration)
Missed this @ Film Forum . . . but my instincts were correct, because Criterion announced the Blu today (for release on 29 April). For the price of a film admission and a round trip ticket to Soho, I can have the film on disk with all these extras:

SPECIAL FEATURES

• New 2K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
• New interviews with screenwriter Ettore Scola and film scholar and professor Rémi Fournier Lanzoni
• Interview from 2004 with director Dino Risi by film critic Jean A. Gili
• Introduction by actor Jean-Louis Trintignant from a 1983 French television broadcast of the film
• A Beautiful Vacation, a 2006 documentary on Risi featuring interviews with the director and his collaborators and friends
• Excerpts from a 2012 documentary that returns to Castiglioncello, the location for the film’s beach scenes, featuring rare on-set color footage
• Trailer
• New English subtitle translation
• One Blu-ray and two DVDs, with all content available in both formats
• PLUS: A booklet featuring essays by critics Phillip Lopate and Antonio Monda, as well as excerpts from Risi’s writings, with an introduction by film critic Valerio Caprara

Sorrentino's first feature, L'uomo in più (2001) is playing next Monday at the Jacob Burns (one showing only). It was never released in the U.S. Does anybody know if it's worth seeing?

Independent distributors Raro Video U.S. have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray acclaimed director Valerio Zurlini's Le Soldatesse a.k.a. The Camp Followers (1965), starring Anna Karina, Lea Massari, Marie Laforet, Tomas Milian, Mario Adorf, and Valeria Moriconi. The release is expected to arrive on the U.S. market later this year.

Synopsis: In WWII, Lieutenant Martino and his men are assigned to lead a group of prostitutes through the mountainous ways to serve in brothels for Italian soldiers in Albania.
Is this film any good? I've liked the three other Zurlini films I've seen, so I'd be willing to give this a shot. Sottotitoli, any comment?

The Criterion blu of Il Sorpasso gets all "5"s for technical specs at Blu-ray.com. These screencaps look good: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Il-Sorpasso-Blu-ray/94583/#Screenshots

I have both the italian (sold with a toy reproduction of the car used in the movie) and the french release (to have Trintignant - and Spaak  ?- dubbing themselves). They don't look much worse than the BR. Anyway a good thing this is finally available to english-speakers.

Titanus retro due to screen at Locarno (6-16 August); program to be repeated in a number of cities, including NYC at Lincoln Center (I'm guessing this fall). Details are sparse, but here's what we know for now:

This is interesting: "un film per autore," in chronological order.
http://www.adrianoapra.it/?p=223
I migliori film del cinema italiano (inedito, agosto-ottobre 2014)

Un film per autore. Ordine cronologico. Esclusi registi stranieri (con una eccezione). In alcuni casi ho menzionato antologie uscite in dvd. Esclusi cortometraggi (con due eccezioni e le antologie). Video indica sia analogico che digitale (anche se trasferiti in 35mm). A volte la scelta di un film sottintende molte altre opere dello stesso autore; ma in diversi altri casi no. La scelta è decisamente ampia, e ammetto di essere stato generoso con gli anni più recenti, ma volevo ribadire la vitalit  del nostro cinema anche in anni di crisi; e non sono così sicuro che, nell’insieme, alcuni registi esclusi siano davvero immeritevoli di menzione.

You can get a Region 2 DVd of La Grande Guerra on Amazon,  though they're a little on the expensive side

http://goo.gl/jn43gO

http://goo.gl/RxNwt8


is it true that any DVD will play in any BRD player, no matter the region-encoding? So any Region 2 DVD will play in a Region A BRD player?
What if the region 2 DVD is PAL? The ones listed at the first Amazon link I provided above specifically say PAL; I didn't see it mentioned in the second Amazon link
