Criterion Announces August Titles (Pre-orders Up)

Posted May 15, 2014 05:46 PM by Webmaster

CriterionThe Criterion Collection has announced five titles for Blu-ray release in August: On August 12th, it will release John Cassavetes' Love Streams (1984). On August 19th, it will release Alfonso Cuarón's Y Tu Mamá También (2001) and Pedro Almodóvar's Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (1990). And on August 26th, it will release Shohei Imamura's Vengeance Is Mine (1979) and Bob Fosse's All That Jazz (1979).

Love Streams

The electric filmmaking genius John Cassavetes and his brilliant wife and collaborator Gena Rowlands give luminous, fragile performances as two closely bound, emotionally wounded characters who reunite after years apart. Exhilarating and risky, mixing sober realism with surreal flourishes, Love Streams is a remarkable film that comes at the viewer in a torrent of beautiful, erratic feeling. This inquiry into the nature of love in all its forms was Cassavetes's last truly personal work.

Special Features:
  • New 2K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • New audio commentary featuring writer Michael Ventura
  • New video essay on actor Gena Rowlands by film critic Sheila O'Malley
  • New interviews with executive producer and director of photography Al Ruban and actor Diahnne Abbott
  • Interview from 2008 with actor Seymour Cassel
  • "I'm Almost Not Crazy . . ."—John Cassavetes: The Man and His Work (1984), a sixty-minute documentary by Ventura on the making of Love Streams
  • Trailer
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Dennis Lim and a 1984 piece by Cassavetes on the film from the New York Times
Y Tu Mamá También

The smash road comedy from the Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón is that rare movie to combine raunchy subject matter and emotional warmth. Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna shot to international stardom as a pair of horny Mexico City teenagers from different classes who, after their girlfriends jet off to Italy for the summer, are bewitched by a gorgeous older Spanish woman (Maribel Verdú) they meet at a wedding. When she agrees to accompany them on a trip to a faraway beach, the three form an increasingly intense and sensual alliance that ultimately strips them both physically and emotionally bare. Shot with elegance and dexterity by the great Emmanuel Lubezki, Y tu mamá también is a funny and moving look at human desire.

Special Features:
  • New 2K digital restoration, supervised by director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki and approved by director Alfonso Cuarón, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • On "Y tu mamá también": Then and On "Y tu mamá también": Now, two new pieces on the making of the film, featuring interviews with actors Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna, and Maribel Verdú; Cuarón; cowriter Carlos Cuarón; and Lubezki
  • New interview with philosopher Slavoj Žižek about the film
  • On-set documentary from 2001
  • Deleted scenes
  • You Owe Me One (2002), a short film by Carlos Cuarón
  • Trailers
  • New English subtitle translation
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Charles Taylor and character biographies by Carlos Cuarón
Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!

Pedro Almodóvar's colorful and controversial tribute to the pleasures and perils of Stockholm syndrome, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! is a rambunctious dark comedy starring Antonio Banderas as an unbalanced but alluring former mental patient and Victoria Abril as the B-movie and porn star he takes prisoner in the hopes of convincing her to marry him. A highly unconventional romance that came on the spike heels of Almodóvar's international sensation Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, this is a splashy, sexy central work in the career of one of the world's most beloved and provocative auteurs, radiantly shot by the director's great cinematographer José Luis Alcaine.

Special Features:
  • New 2K digital restoration, supervised by director Pedro Almodóvar and executive producer Agustín Almodóvar, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • New documentary on the making of the film including interviews with Pedro and Agustín Almodóvar; actors Antonio Banderas, Victoria Abril, Loles Léon, Rossy de Palma, and Penélope Cruz; production manager Esther García; editor José Salcedo; and cinematographer José Luis Alcaine
  • New interview with Almodóvar collaborator and Sony Pictures Classics copresident Michael Barker
  • Conversation from 2003 between Almodóvar and Banderas
  • Footage from the film's 1990 premieres in Madrid and New York
  • New English subtitle translation
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring a 1990 piece about the film by Almodóvar, a conversation between filmmaker Wes Anderson and critic Kent Jones, and an interview with Almodóvar from 1989
Vengeance Is Mine

A thief, a murderer, and a charming lady-killer, Iwao Enokizu (Ken Ogata) is on the run from the police. Director Shohei Imamura turns this fact-based story—about the seventy-eight-day killing spree of a remorseless man from a devoutly Catholic family—into a cold, perverse, and at times diabolically funny examination of the primitive coexisting with the modern. More than just a true-crime tale, Vengeance Is Mine bares humanity's snarling id.

Special Features:
  • New, restored high-definition digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • Audio commentary from 2005 featuring critic Tony Rayns
  • Excerpts from a 1999 interview with director Shohei Imamura, produced by the Directors Guild of Japan
  • Trailer and teaser
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Michael Atkinson, a 1994 interview with Imamura by writer Toichi Nakata, and writings by Imamura on Vengeance Is Mine and his approach to filmmaking
All That Jazz

The preternaturally gifted director and choreographer Bob Fosse turned the camera on his own life for this madly imaginative, self-excoriating musical masterpiece. Roy Scheider gives the performance of his career as Joe Gideon, whose exhausting work schedule—mounting a Broadway production by day and editing his latest movie at night—and routine of amphetamines, booze, and sex are putting his health at serious risk. Fosse burrows into Gideon's (and his own) mind, rendering his interior world as phantasmagoric spectacle. Assembled with visionary editing that makes dance come alive on-screen as never before, and overflowing with sublime footwork by the likes of Ben Vereen, Leland Palmer, and the awesomely leggy Ann Reinking, All That Jazz pushes the musical genre to personal depths and virtuosic aesthetic heights.

Special Features:
  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed 3.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • Two audio commentaries: a feature-length one with editor Alan Heim and a scene-specific one with actor Roy Scheider
  • Razzle-Dazzle, a new video essay on the film by critic Matt Zoller Seitz
  • Episode from 1980 of the television talk show Tomorrow, featuring director Bob Fosse and choreographer Agnes de Mille
  • New interview with Heim
  • New interview with Fosse biographer Sam Wasson
  • Interview excerpts and footage from the set, featuring Fosse and Scheider
  • Portrait of a Choreographer, a 2007 documentary on Fosse
  • The Soundtrack: Perverting the Standards, a 2007 documentary about the music in the film
  • Interview from 2007 with George Benson about his song "On Broadway," which opens the film
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by theater critic Hilton Als
  • More!

This is, BY FAR, the most disappointing month for me for Criterion releases that I can ever remember. There have been months where most of the titles held little interest for me, but this one is definitely the lowest.

It's disappointing not to see anything from the 1950s or earlier. Those are usually my favorites from Criterion (though I still have plenty of newer films).

Really, June through August are pretty disappointing for me, though the Demy set looks interesting.

@danmovie: November 2013 for me! Tokyo Story and City Lights were long-awaited mega-classics, and that Zatoichi set...!

Anyway... The ending of All that Jazz is pretty amazing. Great movie. Just watched Y Tu Mama Tambien recently; not crazy about it. But those are two pretty big titles, should make some people happy. Still need to check out some Cassavetes. Seen enough Almodovar though, conversely, to know I'm not interested in that one. And Imamura. An amazing filmmaker I want to see more of on Criterion blu-ray. Vengeance is Mine is a great film, but I'd love to see Profound Desires or a boxset or something.

Not a bad month, but nothing I quite feel the need to own (last announcement that was a purchase for me was Ace in the Hole).

No "Ikiru"? Darn. Will Criterion ever upgrade it to blu-ray? It's not violent enough or action-packed enough I guess. We've got Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Throne of Blood, Hidden Fortress, Yojimbo, Sanjuro, High and Low, and Kagemusha: all of which have violence except High and Low. I guess Criterion doesn't think Ikiru or Red Beard or the Lower Depths or the Bad Sleep Well will sell.

While this probably isn't the number one greatest month for Criterion this year, these are mostly great films.

Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down is classic Almodovar, and I am huge fan of his films, so I will be picking it up for sure (now someone needs to release the rest of his films on Blu but, especially Dark Habits, Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown, All About My Mother, Talk To Her, Bad Education, and What Have I Done To Deserve This).

While Cuaron isn't really one of my all time favorite directors, he has made a 2 or 3 films that I consider brilliant, and Y Tu Mama Tambien one of them (the other one that comes to mind is Children Of Men). Y Tu Mama Tambien is a really great film, with wonderful cinematography, that beautifully captures the Mexican country, and a brilliant early performance by Gael Garcia Bernal (some other films he's in that I would like to see arrive on Blu-ray are Motorcycle Diaries, and Amores Perros). I don't know why in the announcement Y Tu Mama Tambien is labeled a comedy though, when there isn't really much, if any humor in the film (what it is, is a drama/road movie/coming of age story).

I was planning on getting Criterion's Cassavetes: Five Films set, and Love Streams would make a nice addition to that set
(I haven't seen the film before but, with Cassavetes and Rowlands working together, it's got to be good).

I love Immamura, and even though Vengeance Is Mine isn't one my very favorite films by him, it is an interesting film, so I will probably pick it up at some point (I hope that before too long we can look forward to a blu-ray release of the Pigs, Pimps, and Battleships set that Criterion previously put out on dvd because, then I'll be really happy... that set, and then The Pornographer).

The only film that I don't really have any feeling about one way or the other is All That Jazz (I've never seen it before) but, I am aware of it's status as an American classic, and if it's as entertaining as Cabaret I would certainly dig it, as I like Cabaret a lot (maybe I'll get a chance to see it before it's release).

Don't like this wave. I never was a big fan of Imamura and I didn't significantly ever like Vengeance in Mine. I thought Y Tu Mama Tambien was pure crap, sorry to the fans but that is just how I feel. For some reason I can't even stand Almodovar and I detest his films in general, out of 16 films I watched I do not remember liking even one. Love Streams is great film in many ways but I have to confess that I wasn't crazy about seeing it on bluray.

Only All that Jazz is a pleaser. I was waiting ages to have it in some form in my collection and a Criterion from a 4K Master is practically a dream come true. This film might not be a masterpiece but the cinematography was unforgettable and this is the best way to savor the visuals.

But all in all this is a disappointing wave to me, more so as my birthday is in August.

I hope Criterion has more from Almodóvar coming in the future. This one is really good, but only his most recent films are available on Region A blu-ray, and Criterion is a perfect match for him. I'm sure they will release more if they can. A "trilogy" release of All About My Mother, Talk to Her, and Bad Education would be amazing.

What are the differences between a "new, restored high-definition restoration," a "new 2K restoration" and a "new, 4K digital restoration?"

Forgive me if I haven't quoted those exactly, but it appears as though there are at least three types of restoration efforts with these titles. I am typing on a phone, cannot see this text box and the source material at the same time, and haven't yet learned the phone's copy-and-paste gestures, if there are any.

Nothing for me unfortunately. How about Fellini Roma? Satyricon? Juliet of the Spirits? Far more interesting body of work. Maybe next year.

Tie Me Up! is great news. I can't wait to see the day Criterion releases Talk to Her and All About My Mother!!

Another pretty big month for Criterion.
Love Streams, All That Jazz, and Tie Me Up for me.

A rare month where none of the Criterion releases are of much interest to me. That's not a complaint, I'm sure there'll be more good stuff later in the year.

Top reviewer

ALL THAT JAZZ is certainly a must! Will probably also get "Vengeance Is Mine" and maybe TIE ME UP! TIE ME DOWN! but will stick with my old DVD of that Cuaron and don't really want to own the Cassevetes (I generally prefer his earlier work to his later and have the BFI's SHADOWS and FACES and Olive's TOO LATE BLUES).
