Criterion Announces September Titles (Pre-orders Up)

Posted June 19, 2014 05:52 PM by Webmaster

CriterionThe Criterion Collection has announced five titles for Blu-ray release in September: On September 10th, it will release David Lynch's Eraserhead (1977). On September 23rd, it will release Roman Polanski's Macbeth (1971) and Jack Clayton's The Innocents (1961). And on September 30th, it will release Serge Bourguignon's Sundays and Cybčle (1962) and Rainer Werner Fassbinder's Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (1974).

Eraserhead

David Lynch's 1977 debut feature, Eraserhead, is both a lasting cult sensation and a work of extraordinary craft and beauty. With its mesmerizing black-and-white photography by Frederick Elmes, evocative sound design, and unforgettably enigmatic performance by Jack Nance, this visionary nocturnal odyssey remains one of American cinema's darkest dreams.

Special Features:
  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed stereo soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • "Eraserhead" Stories, a 2001 documentary by David Lynch on the making of the film
  • New high-definition restorations of six short films by Lynch: Six Figures Getting Sick (1966), The Alphabet (1968), The Grandmother (1970), The Amputee, Part 1 and Part 2 (1974), and Premonitions Following an Evil Deed (1996), all with video introductions by Lynch
  • New and archival interviews with cast and crew
  • Trailer
Macbeth

Roman Polanski imbues his unflinchingly violent adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy of ruthless ambition and murder in medieval Scotland with grit and dramatic intensity. Jon Finch and Francesca Annis are charged with fury and sex appeal as a decorated warrior rising in the ranks and his driven wife, scheming together to take the throne by any means. Coadapted by Polanski and the great theater critic and dramaturge Kenneth Tynan, and shot against a series of stunning, stark British Isle landscapes, this version of Macbeth is among the most atmospheric and authentic of all Shakespeare films.

Special Features:
  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed stereo soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • New documentary about the making of the film, featuring interviews with director Roman Polanski, producer Andrew Braunsberg, assistant executive producer Victor Lownes, and stars Francesca Annis and Martin Shaw
  • Polanski Meets Macbeth, a 1971 documentary by Frank Simon featuring rare footage of the film's cast and crew at work
  • Theatrical trailers
  • More!
  • PLUS: An essay by critic Terrence Rafferty
The Innocents

This genuinely frightening, exquisitely made supernatural gothic stars Deborah Kerr as an emotionally fragile governess who comes to suspect that there is something very, very wrong with her precocious new charges. A psychosexually intensified adaptation of Henry James's classic The Turn of the Screw, cowritten by Truman Capote and directed by Jack Clayton, The Innocents is a triumph of narrative economy and technical expressiveness, from its chilling sound design to the stygian depths of its widescreen cinematography by Freddie Francis.

Special Features:
  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • Audio commentary featuring cultural historian Christopher Frayling
  • New interview with cinematographer John Bailey on director of photography Freddie Francis and the look of the film
  • Archival interviews with editor James Clark, Francis, and script supervisor Pamela Francis
  • Trailer
  • More!
  • PLUS: An essay by critic Maitland McDonagh
Sundays And Cybele

In this provocative Academy Award winner from French director Serge Bourgignon, a psychologically damaged war veteran and a neglected child begin a startlingly intimate friendship—one that ultimately ignites the suspicion and anger of his friends and neighbors in suburban Paris. Bourguignon's film makes thoughtful, humane drama out of potentially incendiary subject matter, and with the help of the sensitive cinematography of Henri Decaë and a delicate score by Maurice Jarre, Sundays and Cybčle becomes a stirring contemplation of an alliance between two troubled souls.

Special Features:
  • New 2K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • New interviews with director Serge Bourguignon and actor Patricia Gozzi
  • Le sourire (1960), Bourguignon's Palme d'Or–winning short documentary
  • Trailer
  • New English subtitle translation
  • PLUS: An essay by critic Ginette Vincendeau
Ali: Fear Eats The Soul

The wildly prolific German filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder paid homage to his cinematic hero Douglas Sirk with this update of that filmmaker's 1955 All That Heaven Allows. A lonely widow (Brigitte Mira) meets a much younger Arab worker (El Hedi ben Salem) in a bar during a rainstorm. They fall in love, to their own surprise—and to the outright shock of their families, colleagues, and drinking buddies. In Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, Fassbinder expertly uses the emotional power of classic Hollywood melodrama to expose the racial tensions underlying contemporary German culture.

Special Features:
  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • Introduction from 2003 by filmmaker Todd Haynes
  • Interviews from 2003 with actor Brigitte Mira and editor Thea Eymčsz
  • Shahbaz Noshir's 2002 short Angst isst Seele auf, which reunites Mira, Eymčsz, and cinematographer Jürgen Jürges to tell the story, based on real events, of an attack by neo-Nazis on a foreign actor while on his way to a stage performance of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's screenplay
  • Signs of Vigorous Life: New German Cinema, a 1976 BBC program about the national film movement of which Fassbinder was a part
  • Scene from Fassbinder's 1970 film The American Soldier that inspired Ali
  • Trailer
  • PLUS: An essay by critic Chris Fujiwara

Looks like they've gone back to separate BD and DVD releases. That's good news for most, except retailers who have more SKUs this way. It certainly keeps the resale market for previously issued DVDs right where I want it to be.

Some great films here and all with 4K transfers except Sunday and Cybele, which has a 2K transfer. This will be an expensive month for sure. I've been waiting for David Lynch to get a Criterion release for years.

Really glad that Criterion has gone back to the blu-ray only format. The dual edition format must have been a financial bust for them to have gone back.

Beyond excited for Eraserhead...days before my birthday, too!! I love that the Short Films of David Lynch are included, as well...minus the Cowboy and the Frenchman, unfortunately, which was on the Short Films DVD. Seeing as it isn't on Hulu, I wasn't expecting it on here anyway. That ones harder to find online than some of his other stuff, but I've seen it. Definitely picking this up first day without a doubt despite my pointless tangent haha.

Wow, David Lynch is finally in the Criterion Collection! I just saw the new September announcements and I literally almost fell of my chair when I saw Eraserhead listed. We all knew this was coming but actually seeing it on my computer screen with David Lynch written on a Criterion movie is simply a revelation. Something tells me that Mulholland Dr. will be next. The real highlight of the Eraserhead release is of course the collection of short films though by far. Anyway, I'm in for that movie and the Polanski film (Macbeth). Also am really glad to see the Fassbinder upgrade too. Superb and exciting announcements!

One of the strongest lineups in a while (though they've been very strong this year).

The very top priority for me will be Polanski's outstanding Macbeth (1971), the blu-ray release of which I've been looking forward to for years now. I consider it one of this director's very best films (lots to choose from there) and easily one of the best films based on a Shakespeare play ever made. It's nice to see Criterion releasing so many by Polanski. I hope Knife in the Water (already on Criterion DVD) and The Tenant arrive in the near future as well.

Eraserhead will also be a high priority for me. Always nice to have a little more Lynch in the collection. And, yes, it's surprising that more of his work wasn't released in hi-def long ago (though Twin Peaks is coming).

The Innocents will likely become an alternative version to the BFI edition I currently own. During a big sale, that is.

I'm not familiar with Ali: Fear Eats the Soul but that type of storyline is always compelling to me, so it's a release I quite look forward to.

Sundays and Cybele looks interesting but I'll likely save it for a big sale.

Very nice, Criterion.

Strong lineup for my tastes, guess they're anticipating Halloween. Was just thinking again the other day about when Polanski's Macbeth would come out. Glad I already saw Ali... good movie & would buy it if I could afford it, but don't need to break the bank to see it again. Sundays...sounds interesting, wish I could just rent it. It's gonna be tough waiting for another sale to get these.

For the first time ever I'm going to buy to new Criterion releases. Eraserhead and Macbeth. Even though I was anticpating Eraserhead, I was surprised by Polanski's Macbeth (which is my personal screen adaptation of a Shakespeare play) Even though I'm happy a brilliant Polanski film is getting another Criterion release this year. I'm still waiting for The Tenant. It'll be great if Criterion completes Polanski's urban paranoia trilogy (which consisted of Repulsion and Rosemary's Baby) Also Knife in the Water is one I would love to see released on blu ray also.

Wow, I literally shouted "[expletive] YEAH!" when I saw the Eraserhead cover next to this news. Will grab four our of the five titles, nice! And if I remember correctly, it has been Lynch's wish that Eraserhead would NOT be divided into chapters on the DVD or BD. Given how closely Criterion usually works with directors, I'd be surprised to see chapter selection on their release.

SUNDAYS AND CYBČLE!
I have been going on and on for Criterion to look at this absolute gem of a movie! And now they have!
But WHY only a 2K restoration? Why not step it up a little, while they are at it? It's a real pity that what I surely consider the most interesting among these titles also comes with less extras and no 4K scan.
Well, I sure hope those 2K go all the way, and it's not only about resolution. But still. I don't want to be concerned about inferior quality with this one!
I'm definitely NOT a fan of the description here about Sundays and Cybčle, either... >.<
Unnecessarily stigmatizing and almost demonizing, like some words of warning, even. That's how I read it, anyway, taking into consideration our society today and the ultimate hysteria around even *thinking* about child/adult relationships that are anything but within the family.

From Movie Mail, instead:
"Hardy Kruger is a Vietnam war veteran, traumatized after killing a child on a bombing mission, Francoise is an abandoned child he meets. This film is about the trust and bond that develops between these two wounded human beings. This really is something of a lost gem, a powerfully affecting film that is both heartbreaking and sublime. "

Or better yet, a review from the same site:

@BillWatkins: Source to that? The DVD was from Sony, and it was remastered back then. So it seems unlikely they would do another scan for Criterion. I mean, what's in it for them? If so, they will use the scan they already did for the DVD. And that would truly be lazy. I'm not rushing to buy this until I read a review and get some screens to compare. Criterion discs are very expensive.

@repete66211 I think we can all admit that Eraserhead is a bit difficult to digest for those not acquainted with David Lynch. Have you tried watching Twin Peaks? It's mesmerizing, and has quite a bit more beauty and humor (together with it's tragic violence) than a more "art house" offering like Eraserhead. Try checking out Twin Peaks and you may begin to see the unique genius that this man possesses. :-)

I thought it sucked too, but I slogged through it, and it wasn't easy. Then a couple of years later I decided to watch it again and I saw many things I hadn't seen the first time. It still wasn't easy, and by the third viewing the layers began to peel back. This film is like a present that you unwrap very, very slowly. If you have the interest, the stamina, and the time to invest, the film will reveal itself.

@Monty70: You'd rather I give a pretentious summation as to why the movie isn't any good imo? No one wants to read that.

Actually, I would enjoy reading a brief paragraph on why you dislike the film. I find the film beautifully made, not to mention a profound exploration of one man's fear of the responsibilities of procreation.

@Shadoe: I'm familiar with Lynch. I've seen some of the TP series and all of his movies. I say overrated not because of Eraserhead, which could be much worse, but Mulholland Drive.

Eraserhead is yet another over-rated movie lovingly embraced by the folks at Criterion. Why don't they do a Criterion edition of Blair Witch Project next...!

To all the people complaining that Lynch and/or Eraserhead are "overrated" you have to understand that taste is subjective - for me personally Eraserhead is one of my favourite Lynch films and Lynch himself is one of my favourite directors. I still have strong memories of discovering Eraserhead at a particular point in my life and it having a huge impact - this release may not be for everyone, but for those of us who want it why would anyone begrudge us that?

"To all the people complaining that Lynch and/or Eraserhead are "overrated" you have to understand that taste is subjective"

Taste may be subjective but the reputation of Eraserhead isn't. It is regarded as a classic arthouse film. So when people claim it is overrated, they are expressing their personal opinion about a general consensus which is not subjective.

Now that that has been that cleared up, I will be pre-ordering Eraserhead. :-)
