A decent month. I'll upgrade Phantom Carriage and 3 Women, and probably pick up the Chabrols.

I already have the Canadian Carlos blu-ray, which looks nice but has no extras - wonder how big an upgrade the Criterion will be.

I got 2 right! Although, one of them was a given.

Will be getting all of them.

Phantom Carriage unfortunately won't include Bergman's The Picture Makers, unless it's a last-minute addition to the 'More!' category.
The last person to die on New Year’s Eve before the clock strikes twelve is doomed to take the reins of Death’s chariot and work tirelessly collecting fresh souls for the next year. So says the legend that drives The Phantom Carriage (Körkarlen), directed by the father of Swedish cinema, Victor Sjöström, about an alcoholic, abusive ne’er-do-well (Sjöström himself) who is shown the error of his ways and the pure-of-heart Salvation Army sister who believes in his redemption. Based on a novel by Nobel Prize winner Selma Lagerlöf, this extraordinarily rich and innovative silent classic (which inspired Ingmar Bergman to make movies) is a Dickensian ghost story and a deeply moving morality tale, as well as a showcase for groundbreaking special effects.

Disc Features

- New digital transfer, restored in collaboration with the Archival Film Collections of the Swedish Film Institute
- Two scores, one by acclaimed Swedish composer Matti Bye and the other by the experimental duo KTL
- Audio commentary featuring film historian Casper Tybjerg
- Interview with Ingmar Bergman excerpted from the 1981 documentary Victor Sjöström: A Portrait, by Gösta Werner
- The Bergman Connection, an original visual essay by film historian and Bergman scholar Peter Cowie on The Phantom Carriage’s influence on Bergman
- New and improved English subtitle translation
- PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by screenwriter and filmmaker Paul Mayersberg
- More!
In Les cousins, Claude Chabrol crafts a sly moral fable about a provincial boy who comes to live with his sophisticated bohemian cousin in Paris. Through these seeming opposites, Chabrol conjures a piercing, darkly comic character study that questions notions of good and evil, love and jealousy, and success in the modern world. A mirror image of Le beau Serge, Chabrol’s debut, Les cousins recasts that film’s stars, Jean-Claude Brialy and Gérard Blain, in startlingly reversed roles. This dagger-sharp drama won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival and was an important precursor to the French New Wave.

Disc Features

- New digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
- Audio commentary featuring film scholar Adrian Martin
- A 2011 documentary by filmmaker Pierre-Henri Gibert about the making of Les cousins, featuring director Claude Chabrol, star Stéphane Audran, assistant directors Charles Bitsch and Claude de Givray, and others
- New and improved English subtitle translation
- Theatrical trailer
- PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic Terrence Rafferty

Le beau Serge

Of the hallowed group of Cahiers du cinéma critics turned filmmakers who would transform French film history, Claude Chabrol was the first to direct his own feature. His stark and absorbing landmark debut, Le beau Serge, follows a successful yet sickly young man (Jean‑Claude Brialy) who returns home to the small village where he grew up. There, he finds himself at odds with his former close friend (Gérard Blain)—now unhappily married and a wretched alcoholic—and the provincial life he represents. The remarkable and raw Le beau Serge heralded the arrival of a cinematic titan who would go on to craft provocative, entertaining films for five more decades.

Disc Features

- New digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
- New audio commentary featuring Guy Austin, author of Claude Chabrol
- Segment from a 1969 episode of the French television series L’invité du dimanche in which Chabrol revisits Sardent, the town he grew up in and the film’s location
- A 2011 documentary by filmmaker Pierre-Henri Gibert on the making of Le beau Serge
- New and improved English subtitle translation
- Theatrical trailer
- PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic Terrence Rafferty
- More!
Disc features for Carlos:

DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION:

New digital transfer, supervised and approved by directors of photography Denis Lenoir and Yorick Le Saux, with DTS-HD Master Audio on the Blu-ray edition
New video interviews with director Olivier Assayas, Lenoir, Le Saux, and actor Édgar Ramírez
Twenty-minute making-of documentary on the film’s OPEC raid scene
Original theatrical trailer
PLUS: A booklet featuring essays by critics Colin MacCabe and Greil Marcus, plus biographies on selected historical figures portrayed in the film, written by the film’s historical adviser, Stephen Smith
Much more!

With Three Colors on the way, I wonder if there's any chance they would try to get The Decalogue.

I think there was some hopeful talk because the DVD went out of print and Criterion has a good relationship with Paramount.

Three Colors is great news, have no use for any of the 5 above though.

I like My Life As a Dog too...excited to see it's getting the BD upgrade. But with at least half a dozen released or about-to-be-released CC's that I want, PLUS Three Colors now officially on the radar, it'll have to go on the back burner along with other Criterion upgrades. (I have the CC DVD already).

I'm in the same boat with If.... as well. Have the DVD, would like the BD, but only so much time and money.

Haven't heard much, if anything, about Nashville coming to the CC. I would love it though. There's no way Paramount will release it on BD.

From Criterion's Facebook page:



Hard at work on our 2012 release schedule... It's going to be a great year!

And with some helpful detective work from the Criterion Forum:

Life of Oharu is an excellent choice though, as the AE disc looks pretty lousy. Posters on the Criterion Forum are speculating that the Dr. Seuss title is 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

It makes me happy.

If Spartacus is true, than it makes me feel a whole lot better waiting on that botched Universal release...

well if Fox can remaster Patton - maybe there's a chance Universal and Criterion could pony up the cash and time in a new hidef 65mm transfer.
