Criterions usually ship early anyway. Could you possibly provide a screencap of F For Fake? I'm just curious what the quality is.

Yeah, I have a question. Did you start this thread for any reason other than to brag about getting the discs earlier than everybody else?

Is their horseradish sauce still called "Horsey Sauce"? I hate calling it that. I'm a grown man, dammit.

Eating at Arby's in the first place makes the entire "grown man" claim suspect, anyway.

Pay you no mind to these pranksters and silly-willies. A few of us "serious" cinema afficionados appreciate your post extending an invitation to querry you with regards to your recent Criterion dvd acquisitions. What I'm most intrigued about, and perhaps with your "coup" you may be in a position to better enlighten me and my fellow cinephiles- Is "F" really and truly for "Fake"? I patiently await your reply.

Is "Divorce" as funny as the premise sounds (my Italian knowledge goes about as far as Fellini)

Seasoned curly of course.

And, yes, it's still called horsey sauce.

If I was a pr0n director I'd make a movie called F for *****. In fact I'd make all my movies have titles that are plays off of "serious" films.

I don't get it - F for fucky? F for fatty? The only dirty 5-letter words I can think of don't start with F.

I got Divorce too and I'm amazed at the quality. This is one classic Italian film I hadn't gotten around to see when it came out. I was too young at the time and the occasion never arose. I admit I peed my pants after half an hour. The hilarity comes from the serious tone of the narration clashing with the brutality and stupidity of the Sicilian people, in my opinion.

Anyway, this is one fine transfer when you compare to the fate reserved to other Italian films of the era on DVD (Le Bambole, The Girl with a Suitcase, etc.).

Quoting from the website blurb:

He has a good job working as a railroad man, but Andrea Marcocci is not happy. An obscure disease haunts him. His daughter Giulia leaves her husband, seeking shelter in the arms of another man, who does not love her. Andrea’s good–for-nothing son storms out after one argument too many with his father. Unable to face these troubles alone, Andrea starts to drink. Inevitably, the booze
interferes with his work and he causes a serious rail accident. Desperately trying to hold onto his job, he goes to work on a strike day, further alienating himself from his friends and colleagues.

Severely attacked by the leftist Italian critics of its time, THE RAILROAD MAN is a heartfelt cry against many of the problems that plagued Italian society during the mid-50’s. And, it is an undisputed masterpiece of its director and star Pietro Germi (DIVORCE - ITALIAN STYLE, SEDUCED AND ABANDONED). Written by Germi (who gives a passionate performance as Andrea) and Luciano Vincenzoni (FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE), the film also features a magnificent score by maestro Carlo Rustichelli (KILL, BABY… KILL!). The extraordinary ensemble cast includes Sylva Koscina, (JULIET OF THE SPIRITS, LISA AND THE DEVIL) as Giulia plus Saro Urzi (THE GODFATHER’s Vitelli); Carlo Giuffré (Geppetto in Roberto Benigni’s PINOCCHIO); Edoardo Nevola (A MAN OF STRAW) and Franco Fantasia (one of Italy’s premier character actors).
Digitally remastered from the original vault negative, for the first time ever uncut on DVD in America, THE RAILROAD MAN is a masterpiece of late Italian neo-realism and cannot be missed.
