Criterion Announces April Titles

Posted January 15, 2014 05:01 PM by Webmaster

CriterionThe Criterion Collection has announced five titles for Blu-ray release in April: On April 8th, the studio will re-release François Truffaut's The 400 Blows (1959). On April 15th, it will release Lars von Trier's Breaking the Waves (1996). On April 22th, it will release Carl Theodor Dreyer's Master of the House (1925) and Don Siegel's Riot in Cell Block 11 (1954). And on April 29th, it will release Dino Risi's Il Sorpasso (1962).

The 400 Blows

The unforgettable debut feature by François Truffaut is a wrenchingly personal coming-of-age story that introduced the character that would become the director's lifelong cinematic counterpart, Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud, in one of the screen's great child performances). With the utmost sensitivity, The 400 Blows dramatizes the trials of Truffaut's own difficult childhood, characterized by aloof parents, oppressive teachers, and petty crime. The film marks its maker's official transition from influential critic to one of Europe's most brilliant auteurs, and is considered the first true work of the French New Wave.

Special Features:
  • New, restored high-definition digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • New digital transfer of Antoine and Colette (The Adventures of Antoine Doinel box set only)
  • Two audio commentaries, one by cinema professor Brian Stonehill and another by François Truffaut's lifelong friend Robert Lachenay
  • Rare audition footage of Jean-Pierre Léaud, Patrick Auffay, and Richard Kanayan
  • Newsreel footage of Jean-Pierre Léaud in Cannes for the showing of The 400 Blows
  • Excerpt from a French TV program with Truffaut discussing his youth, critical writings, and the origins of Antoine Doinel in The 400 Blows and Antoine and Colette
  • Television interview with Truffaut about the global reception of The 400 Blows and his own critical impression of the film
  • Theatrical trailer for The 400 Blows
  • PLUS: A new essay by film scholar Annette Insdorf
Breaking the Waves

Lars von Trier became an international sensation with this galvanizing realist fable about sex and spiritual transcendence. Emily Watson stuns, in an Oscar-nominated performance, as Bess, a simple, pious newlywed in a tiny Scottish village who gives herself up to a shocking form of martyrdom after her husband (Stellan Skarsgård) is paralyzed in an oil-rig accident. Breaking the Waves, both brazen and tender, profane and pure, is an examination of the expansiveness of faith and of its limits.

Special Features:
  • New 4K digital restoration, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • Selected-scene audio commentary featuring director Lars von Trier, editor Anders Refn, and location scout Anthony Dod Mantle
  • New interview with filmmaker and critic Stig Björkman
  • New interviews with actors Emily Watson and Stellan Skarsgård
  • Interview from 2004 with actor Adrian Rawlins
  • Watson's audition tape, with commentary by von Trier
  • Deleted and extended scenes, with commentary by von Trier
  • Deleted scene featuring the late actor Katrin Cartlidge
  • Cannes Film Festival promotional clip
  • Trailer
  • New English subtitle translation
  • One Blu-ray and two DVDs, with all content available in both formats
  • PLUS: An essay by critic David Sterritt
Master of the House

Before he got up close and personal with Joan of Arc, the Danish cinema genius Carl Theodor Dreyer fashioned this finely detailed, ahead-of-its-time examination of domestic life. In this heartfelt story of a housewife who, with the help of a wily nanny, turns the tables on her tyrannical husband, Dreyer finds lightness and humor; it's a deft comedy of revenge that was an enormous box-office success and is considered an early example of feminism on-screen. Constructed with the director's customary meticulousness and stirring sense of justice, Master of the House is a jewel of silent cinema.

Special Features:
  • New 2K digital restoration, with a recent score by Gillian Anderson, presented in uncompressed stereo on the Blu-ray
  • New interview with Dreyer historian Casper Tybjerg
  • New visual essay on Dreyer's camera work and editing by film historian David Bordwell
  • New English intertitle translation
  • One Blu-ray and one DVD, with all content available in both formats
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film scholar Mark Le Fanu
Riot in Cell Block 11

Early in his career, Don Siegel made his mark with this sensational and high-octane but economically constructed drama set in a maximum-security penitentiary. Riot in Cell Block 11, the brainchild of producer extraordinaire Walter Wanger, is a ripped-from-the-headlines social-problem picture about prisoners' rights that was inspired by a recent spate of uprisings in American prisons. In Siegel's hands, the film is at once brash and humane, showcasing the hard-boiled visual flair and bold storytelling for which the director would become known and shot on location at Folsom State Prison, with real inmates and guards as extras.

Special Features:
  • New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • New audio commentary by film scholar Matthew Bernstein
  • Excerpts from the director's 1993 autobiography, A Siegel Film, read by his son Kristoffer Tabori
  • More!
  • One Blu-ray and one DVD, with all content available in both formats
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Chris Fujiwara, a 1954 article by coproducer Walter Wanger, and a 1974 tribute to Siegel by filmmaker Sam Peckinpah
Il Sorpasso

The ultimate Italian road comedy, Il Sorpasso stars the unlikely pair of Vittorio Gassman and Jean-Louis Trintignant as, respectively, a waggish, free-wheeling bachelor and the bookish law student he takes on a madcap trip from Rome to rural Southern Italy. An unpredictable journey that careers from slapstick to tragedy, this film, directed by Dino Risi, is a wildly entertaining commentary on the pleasures and consequences of the good life. A holy grail of commedia all'italiana, Il Sorpasso is so fresh and exciting that one can easily see why it has long been adored in Italy.

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

I'm getting a bit sick of people saying it's a crap selection when every Criterion line up is announced. I might be mistaken, but isn't the reasoning behind these releases to create awareness and updated retail copies of culturally significant films that would struggle to get released in other means and catch the attention modern younger film viewers that would usually bat an eye to, not to give your favourite film from a couple of years back a new release, but to introduce you to new things and allow you to broaden your horizons.

It doesn't mean not be critical of the selection, but most people complaining, are complaining about films they've never heard about and are not giving a chance. Looks at the films they have on offer, have a bit of a research and then decide if it looks like crap, you might be chucking away a good film for the sake of a film not being made by Wes Anderson or Paul Verhoeven.

I've got the Japanese blu of BREAKING THE WAVES so probably won't double-dip but glad others who don't import (even though Japan is the same region as US) can have access to this great film in high-def. Geez, this film makes me tear-up every time.

I'm with Foggy! I love the eclectic selection and am still mightily disappointed not to see Oshima's BOY announced yet, but Criterion introduces me to films I would have otherwise missed. I'm well read and versed on film history but I would never have searched out IL SORPASSO but with a Criterion blu I'll give it a spin. I love Dreyer but have not seen MASTER OF THE HOUSE and again I may never have seen it but can't pass up a new restoration.

I cannot believe that people come on here and blithely state that there’s nothing to see? It’s a lighter month by Criterion’s high standards but there’s still plenty to enjoy if you are unprejudiced & inquisitive enough to explore world & historical cinema. We have a rare early example of satirical comedy from Dreyer, a blazing firestorm from Don Siegel that was banned in the UK, a complete unknown quantity (for me) of commedia all'italiana and finally the end of a 2 year wait for Von Trier’s post Dogme international breakthrough.

For one month that’s excellent value.

The #1 mistake many people make is to subscribe to the premise that Criterion only releases culturally significant movies, like they're the definitive arbiters of film history/theory. Such a position is naive. There are MANY examples of Criterion releases that have limited cultural value. They are very thorough with the movies they do release, but then we pay them for that don't we?

OK, so where is Joan of Arc anyway?

4k for Breaking the Waves!!!! The signature style of that film was how Von Trier shot on film but made the final negative from the final cut beta tape because he loved the video look. It was after this experiment that he masterfully shot Dancer in the Dark completely in Anamorphic DV. I was always interested to see Breaking the Waves in it's pristine original 35mm form but I wasn't exactly escatic about it, and the DV look suits the film well. And the biggest blunder of all is that the aesthetic style of the film doesn't even demand a blu-ray, a Criterion release is far off and on top of that a 4k Transfer!

And they relegated a very good HD Scan of Aguntuk to a Eclipse Set, now thats a film that needed a single release.

Master of the House though is a masterful choice, so is Riot in Cell Block 11. And I always wanted to watch Il Sorpasso, and now I can watch it in the best way possible. These choices are truly great.

But releasing Breaking the Waves while there are other films badly in need of a release is plain idiotic to me.

@Alex82: "I hate that kind of misleading stuff. It's really a NEW, NEW trasfer, or merely a repackage with a copy & paste description of the previous edition?"

The latter. There's nothing new about this release. They've let their stock of DVD-only and BD-only copies run out, and they're now issuing it as a Dual Format, just as they doing with Breathless next month.

If you're the type who thinks that the sign of a good movie is how well it tortures its audience, then you'll just love Breaking the Waves. I love both Skarsgard and Watson, but this movie didn't do it for me. Not because it tortures the audience or that it's the very definition of a downer...maybe it's just that the whole Dogme 95 aesthetic just doesn't work with narrative movies.

I hope Criterion re-releases The Third Man...as soon as my eBay listing expires. It's over $50 after just 12 hours. They've been trending up around $100 (used) for a while now. Not bad for a $20 purchase. :-)

So "Breaking the Waves" isn't going to look like the director intended? Or is Lars Von Trier approving this "non-video" looking 4k transfer?

So 400 Blows is neither Kung Fu nor porn, huh...

I've wanted to see Breaking the Waves since I saw Antichrist, but it hasn't been available.

Maybe it's obvious to everyone else, but the 400 Blows lists a new digital transfer of Antoine y Colette as a special feature, but then qualifies that this new digital transfer will be available in the Adventures of Antoine Doinel box set only.

New digital transfer of Antoine and Colette (The Adventures of Antoine Doinel box set only)

...I don't understand. Which box set? The one on DVD?
