Is Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (blu) out of print? I had it in my amazon.co.uk cart and now see that it's available only from third party sellers at premium prices. Maybe another casualty of the recent riots?

You can buy it directly from Masters of Cinema here: eurekavideo.co.uk/offers/BD.html They're in the process of moving all their blu-rays to dual format release and that's why most online shops don't have them.

This is a bit of a surprise as Criterion's seems to still be on schedule for 10/25 & this will likely cost MOC some sales. I consider this an essential purchase, but it is a niche film with a relatively small audience.

Maybe they're turning it into a dual-format release?

I'm taking a break from watching the Criterion Island of Lost Souls dvd at the moment. I'm extremely disappointed in the print. It's quite grainy, & the improvement from the commercially released Universal VHS & European PD dvd that I own is less than I expected.

I'm hoping that MOC's delayed release (I was told it's been pushed to 5/12) is to restore the print beyond what Criterion did.

I read the booklet after watching the dvd & posting the above. Apparently the original negative is lost, so this grainy print may be all we get (sigh).

re: The Official Eureka / Masters of Cinema Thread

A couple of DVD-only releases:



One of the handful of films that found Pier Paolo Pasolini sustaining a merrier mode of cultural assault, Hawks and Sparrows [Uccellacci e uccellini] features Italy’s popular comic actor Totò (known to cinephiles as the star of Roberto Rossellini’s Dov’è la liberta…?) and Pasolini regular Ninetto Davoli in a picaresque fable that lampoons politics, religion, and the legacy of neorealism.

A crow gifted with the power of speech accompanies wandering duo Totò and Ninetto on a trail that leads to their roles as Franciscan friars who preach to the literal “hawks and sparrows”, before returning in time to gaze upon slum-dwellers, Danteist dentists, itinerant actor-hippies, and, ultimately, the state of the modern world.

Featuring a score by the legendary Ennio Morricone, Pasolini’s anarchic comedy remains a time-capsule of the giddy tensions torqued by the dawn of the late Sixties. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Hawks and Sparrows in a special DVD edition from a new HD master.

SPECIAL DVD EDITION

• New high-definition transfer in the film’s original aspect ratio
• Original Italian theatrical trailer
• Newly translated optional English subtitles
• 20-PAGE BOOKLET featuring excerpts from an interview with Pier Paolo Pasolini and rare archival imagery



Decades on from its release, and featuring an all-star cast that includes Jean-Pierre Léaud, Anne Wiazemsky, Franco Citti, Pierre Clémenti, and Marco Ferreri, Pigsty [Porcile] remains one of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s most controversial and wilfully provocative works – a deranged parody of cinema as revolutionary act.

It comprises parallel stories: (1) Clémenti and Citti as cannibalistic savages who rampage a world outside of any distinct time or place, and who push against the boundaries of human morality; (2) Godard-regulars Léaud and Wiazemsky as a romantically engaged couple in a contemporary Germany painted as a morass of industrialisation, fascist impulse, and bestial instincts.

Rivalled only by the director’s Salò in its obsession with the politics of bourgeois degradation, Pigsty continues to challenge and enlarge the notions of what makes for “a political film” and what is meant by “a Pasolini film”. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the nightmarish Pigsty in a special DVD edition from a new HD master.

SPECIAL DVD EDITION

• New high-definition transfer in the film’s original aspect ratio
• Original Italian theatrical trailer
• Newly translated optional English
• Illustrated booklet featuring rare archival imagery, the words of Pasolini, and more!

Thanks for the update. Not many seem to tackle Pasolini's work.

Just watched my copy of Repo Man. It was amazing. Can't wait to pick up more BDs from MoC.

re: The Official Eureka / Masters of Cinema Thread

Has anybody else here ordered the posters Eureka sells for Metropolis, Double Indemnity or Touch of Evil? I ordered a couple but each one has arrived significantly damaged in separate shipments. IMO, the shipping tubes they are using have too small a diameter and are very thin. The posters bear significant damage with very mild incursion on the tube itself, but the posters inside are wound so tightly that the damage gets repeated over and over. Just wondered if anyone else had a similar experience. I have asked for a refund.

I ordered all 3. Touch of Evil and Double Indemnity came in great shape but Metropolis had a large crease/wrinkle down the middle. I emailed them and they told me they would ship a replacement. That was a couple months ago and I still haven't received a replacement. I've sent a couple more emails asking for status but haven't gotten a response.
