Criterion Announces June Titles

Posted March 18, 2013 04:55 PM by Webmaster

CriterionThe Criterion Collection has announced five titles for Blu-ray release in June. On June 11, the studio will release Ingmar Bergman's Wild Strawberries (1957). On June 18th, it will release William Cameron Menzies' Things to Come (1936), František Vlácil's Marketa Lazarová (1967), and Fred Newmeyer and Sam Taylor's Safety Last! (1923). And on June 25th, it will release Claude Lanzmann's Shoah (1985).

Wild Strawberries

Traveling to accept an honorary degree, Professor Isak Borg—masterfully played by veteran director Victor Sjöström—is forced to face his past, come to terms with his faults, and make peace with the inevitability of his approaching death. Through flashbacks and fantasies, dreams and nightmares, Wild Strawberries dramatizes one man's remarkable voyage of self-discovery. This richly humane masterpiece, full of iconic imagery, is a treasure from the golden age of art-house cinema and one of the films that catapulted Ingmar Bergman to international acclaim.

Special Features:
  • New high-definition digital film transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • Audio commentary by film scholar Peter Cowie
  • Introduction by director Ingmar Bergman
  • Ingmar Bergman on Life and Work, a ninety-minute documentary by filmmaker and author Jörn Donner
  • Behind-the-scenes footage shot by Bergman
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film writer Mark Le Fanu
Things to Come

A landmark collaboration between writer H. G. Wells, producer Alexander Korda, and designer and director William Cameron Menzies, Things to Come is a science fiction film like no other, a prescient political work that predicts a century of turmoil and progress. Skipping through time, Things to Come bears witness to world war, dictatorship, disease, the rise of television, and finally, utopia. Conceived, written, and overseen by Wells himself as an adaptation of his own work, this megabudgeted production, the most ambitious ever from Korda's London Films, is a triumph of imagination and technical audacity.

Special Features:
  • New high-definition digital film restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • Audio commentary featuring film historian and writer David Kalat
  • Interview with writer and cultural historian Christopher Frayling on the film's design
  • Film historian Bruce Eder on Arthur Bliss's musical score
  • Audio recording from 1936 of a reading from H. G. Wells's writing about the "wandering sickness," the plague in Things to Come
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Geoffrey O'Brien
  • More!
Marketa Lazarová

In its home country, František Vlácil's Marketa Lazarová has been hailed as the greatest Czech film ever made; for many U.S. viewers, it will be a revelation. Based on a novel by Vladislav Vancura, this stirring and poetic depiction of a feud between two rival medieval clans is a fierce, epic, and meticulously designed evocation of the clashes between Christianity and paganism, humankind and nature, love and violence. Vlácil's approach was to re-create the textures and mentalities of a long-ago way of life, rather than to make a conventional historical drama, and the result is dazzling. With its inventive widescreen cinematography, editing, and sound design, Marketa Lazarová is an experimental action film.

Special Features:
  • New high-definition digital film restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • New interviews with actors Magda Vášáryová, Ivan Palúch, and Vlastimil Harapes and costume designer Theodor Pištek
  • New interviews with film historian Peter Hames and journalist and critic Antonín Liehm
  • New English subtitle translation
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring new essays by film scholar Tom Gunning and author and translator Alex Zucker and a 1969 interview with Vlácil by Liehm
  • More!
Safety Last!

The comic genius of silent star Harold Lloyd is eternal. Chaplin was the sweet innocent, Keaton the stoic outsider, but Lloyd—the modern guy striving for success—is us. And with its torrent of perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, Safety Last! is the perfect introduction to him. Lloyd plays a small-town bumpkin trying to make it in the big city, who finds employment as a lowly department-store clerk. He comes up with a wild publicity stunt to draw attention to the store, resulting in an incredible feat of derring-do on his part that gets him started on the climb to success. Laugh-out-loud funny and jaw-dropping in equal measure, Safety Last! is a movie experience par excellence, anchored by a genuine legend.

Special Features:
  • New 2K digital film restoration
  • Musical score by composer Carl Davis from 1989, synchronized and restored under his supervision and presented in uncompressed stereo on the Blu-ray edition
  • Alternate score by organist Gaylord Carter from the late 1960s, presented in uncompressed monaural on the Blu-ray edition
  • Audio commentary featuring film critic Leonard Maltin and director and Harold Lloyd archivist Richard Correll
  • Introduction by Suzanne Lloyd, Lloyd's granddaughter and president of Harold Lloyd Entertainment
  • Harold Lloyd: The Third Genius, a 104-minute documentary from 1989
  • Three newly restored Lloyd shorts: Take a Chance (1918), Young Mr. Jazz (1919), and His Royal Slyness (1920), with commentary by Correll and film writer John Bengtson
  • Locations and Effects, a new documentary featuring Bengtson and special effects expert Craig Barron
  • New interview with Davis
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Ed Park
Shoah

Over a decade in the making, Claude Lanzmann's nine-hour-plus opus is a monumental investigation of the unthinkable: the murder of more than six million Jews by the Nazis. Using no archival footage, Lanzmann instead focuses on first-person testimonies (of survivors and former Nazis, as well as other witnesses), employing a circular, free-associative method in assembling them. The intellectual yet emotionally overwhelming Shoah is not a film about excavating the past but an intensive portrait of the ways in which the past is always present, and it is inarguably one of the most important cinematic works of all time.

Special Features:
  • New high-definition digital film restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • Three additional films by director Claude Lanzmann: A Visitor from the Living (1999, 68 minutes), Sobibor, October 14, 1943, 4 p.m. (2001, 102 minutes), and The Karski Report (2010, 54 minutes)
  • New conversation between critic Serge Toubiana and Lanzmann
  • Interview with Lanzmann about A Visitor from the Living and Sobibor
  • New conversation between associate director of photography Caroline Champetier and filmmaker Arnaud Desplechin
  • Trailer
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Kent Jones and writings by Lanzmann

As if the film wasn't enough of an incentive, the Harold Lloyd - The Third Genius documentary by David Gill and Kevin Brownlow is worth the purchase price on its own. A shame it doesn't look like the're carrying over the reconstruction of the original version of Things to Come with stills and script extracts for the missing scenes that Network released, though.

Seen a couple of these, haven't heard of the rest. Good news for people who want these titles but I won't be buying any of them which is disappointing but on the other hand, it means that I can save up more money for titles I actually do want to buy.

I know a lot of people don't agree with me but I wish Criterion would mix more "mainstream" classics and "cult classics" into their collection rather than focus so heavily on artsy fartsy films. Don't get me wrong, I have over 80 of their blu-ray's so far. Marvelous stuff. But most of it I'll only watch once a year. I'd like some fantastic movies with a little more "fun" behind them.

What a month. The MOC release of Shoah was monumental enough, but the new Criterion edition looks to be far more comprehensive. The current Network edition of Things to Come has an excellent reconstruction piece, extensive gallery and a detailed commentary, but that impressive roster of contributors (Sir Christopher Frayling & a David Kalat commentary) makes it a must own. Second Run’s edition of Marketa Lazarova was a revelation, but I’m certain that Criterions edition with an HD upgrade & video supplements should open up this masterpiece to an even wider audience
I’m looking forward to revisiting Harold Lloyd without the trite “Here’s Harold” hokey narration that used to accompany the UK television broadcasts in the early 1980’s. It blighted my enjoyment of him even as a child back then.

Things To Come's transfer from Legend is seemingly from a weak 16mm print with some missing footage. A decent transfer of very weak elements, but I'm positive the Criterion will blow it away.

Two intriguing-sounding blind buys there with MARKETA LAZAROVA and SHOAH, plus three classics well-deserving of Criterion-quality Blu-ray upgrades. SAFETY LAST is Lloyd's most iconic film, and an excellent introduction for newbies, although THE KID BROTHER, THE FRESHMAN, and GIRL SHY often go over better with audiences. WILD STRAWBERRIES now puts most of the major Bergman titles on Blu, although I still want THE VIRGIN SPRING and the WINTER LIGHT trilogy (and all the rest, for that matter!). Looking forward to reviews of THINGS TO COME, which I've seen in a variety of 16mm editions of various lengths with bad to truly excellent quality and video editions of bad to mediocre quality. The Legend Blu-ray of THINGS TO COME is barely adequate, if that, and the only reason I got it was for the better but still not spectacualr transfer of SHE.

"Shoah" is probably the most devastating thing I have ever seen. I remember long ago watching it on PBS and not being able to continue to watch it because I was so overwhelmed (well, I was 13), but I watched it later as an adult and am still incredibly moved by it. I kind of wish Criterion would release "Winter Light" (my fav Bergman film), but "Wild Strawberries" is a good one too.

Hopefully TCM shows Marketa Lazarova so I can see if it's worth a purchase. I'd like to see Shoah but I have no intention of buying a 9 hour documentary I know I would only watch once. Safety Last is iconic Harold Lloyd but it's also a good example of why he's generally considered to be 3rd behind Chaplin and Keaton. Things to Come just looks awful. Wild Strawberries is classic art house fare and one of Bergman's best IMO. It's worth a rent for those who want an intro.
