Criterion Blu-ray in December: Clement, Gilliam, Reggio, Nolan

Posted September 17, 2012 06:35 PM by Webmaster

CriterionThe Criterion Collection has announced four titles for Blu-ray release in December. On December 4th, the studio will release Purple Noon (René Clement, 1960) and Brazil (Terry Gilliam, 1985). A week later, on December 11th, it will release The Qatsi Trilogy (Godfrey Reggio, 1983-2002) and Following (Christopher Nolan, 1998).

Technical specs and special features include:

Plein soleil a.k.a Purple Noon

Alain Delon was at his most impossibly beautiful when Purple Noon was released and made him an instant star. This ripe, colorful adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's vicious novel The Talented Mr. Ripley, directed by the versatile René Clément, stars Delon as Tom Ripley, a duplicitous American charmer in Rome on a mission to bring his privileged, devil-may-care acquaintance Philippe Greenleaf (Maurice Ronet) back to the United States; what initially seems to be a carefree tale of friendship soon morphs into a thrilling saga of seduction, identity theft, and murder. Featuring gorgeous on-location photography in coastal Italy, Purple Noon is crafted with a light touch that allows it to be suspenseful and erotic at once, while giving Delon the role of a lifetime.

Special Features:
  • New digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • New video interview with René Clément scholar Denitza Bantcheva
  • Archival interviews with actor Alain Delon and novelist Patricia Highsmith, on whose book The Talented Mr. Ripley the film was based
  • Original English-language trailer
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic Geoffrey O'Brien and a reprinted interview with Clément
Brazil

In the dystopic masterpiece Brazil, Jonathan Pryce plays a daydreaming everyman who finds himself caught in the soul-crushing gears of a nightmarish bureaucracy. This cautionary tale by Terry Gilliam, one of the great films of the 1980s, now ranks alongside antitotalitarian works by the likes of George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr. And in terms of set design, cinematography, music, and effects, Brazil, a nonstop dazzler, stands alone.

Special Features:
  • Restored high-definition digital transfer of Terry Gilliam's 142-minute director's cut, supervised by Gilliam, with DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 surround soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • Audio commentary by Terry Gilliam
  • What Is "Brazil"?, a thirty-minute on-set documentary by Rob Hedden
  • The Battle of "Brazil": A Video History, a sixty-minute documentary by author and film writer Jack Mathews about the controversy surrounding the film's release
  • The "Love Conquers All" version of Brazil, a ninety-four-minute cut of the film produced by the studio in an attempt to make it more commercial, with commentary by Brazil expert David Morgan
  • The Production Notebook, a collection of supplements featuring a trove of Brazil-iana from Gilliam's personal collection: a short documentary on the screenplay, featuring interviews with screenwriters Gilliam, Charles McKeown, and Tom Stoppard; Gilliam's storyboards for unfilmed dream sequences, animated and narrated by Morgan; visual essays on the film's production design and special effects; a visual essay on Brazil's costumes, narrated by costume designer James Acheson; and interviews with Gilliam and composer Michael Kamen on the score
  • Trailer
  • PLUS: An essay by Jack Matthews on the DVD edition and a booklet featuring an essay by film critic David Sterritt on the Blu-ray edition
The Qatsi Trilogy

Koyaanisqatsi
Godfrey Reggio's Koyaanisqatsi is an astonishing collage; the film shuttles the viewer from one jaw-dropping vision to the next, moving from images of untouched nature to others depicting human beings' increasing reliance on technology.

Powaqqatsi
Five years after Godfrey Reggio stunned audiences with Koyaanisqatsi, he joined forces again with composer Philip Glass and other collaborators for a second chapter. Here, Reggio turns his sights on third world nations in the southern hemisphere.

Naqoyqatsi
With a variety of cinematic techniques, including slow motion, time-lapse, and computer-generated imagery, the film tells of a world that has completely transitioned from a natural environment to a human-made one.

Special Features:
  • New, restored high-definition digital transfers of all three films, approved by director Godfrey Reggio, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtracks on the Blu-ray editions
  • Essence of Life, an interview program with Reggio and composer Philip Glass on Koyaanisqatsi
  • New interview with cinematographer Ron Fricke about Koyaanisqatsi
  • Early forty-minute demo version of Koyaanisqatsi with a scratch soundtrack by Allen Ginsberg, along with a new introduction by Reggio
  • New interview with Reggio about Koyaanisqatsi's original visual concept, with behind-the-scenes footage
  • Impact of Progress, an interview program with Reggio and Glass on their collaboration
  • Inspiration and Ideas, an interview with Reggio about his greatest influences and teachers
  • Anima Mundi (1992), Reggio's twenty-eight-minute montage of images of over seventy animal species, scored by Glass
  • Video afterword by Reggio on the trilogy
  • The Making of "Naqoyqatsi," a brief documentary featuring interviews with the production crew
  • Panel discussion on Naqoyqatsi from 2003, with Reggio, Glass, editor Jon Kane, and music critic John Rockwell
  • Music of "Naqoyqatsi," an interview with Glass and cellist Yo-Yo Ma
  • Television spots and an interview with Reggio relating to his 1970s multimedia privacy campaign in New Mexico
  • Trailers
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring essays on the trilogy by film scholar Scott MacDonald, Rockwell, and author and environmentalist Bill McKibben
Following

Before he became a sensation with the twisty revenge story Memento, Christopher Nolan fashioned this low-budget, black-and-white, 16 mm neonoir with comparable precision and cunning. Supplying irrefutable evidence of Nolan's directorial bravura, Following is the fragmented tale of an unemployed young writer who trails strangers through London, hoping that they will provide inspiration for his first novel. He gets more than he bargained for with one of his unwitting subjects, who leads him down a dark, criminal path. With gritty aesthetics and a made-on-the-fly vibe (many shots were simply stolen on the streets, unbeknownst to passersby), Following is a mind-bending psychological journey that shows the remarkable beginnings of one of today's most acclaimed filmmakers.

Special Features:
  • New, restored high-definition digital transfer, supervised by director Christopher Nolan, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • New 5.1 surround sound mix by sound editor Gary Rizzo, presented in DTS-HD Master Audio on the Blu-ray edition
  • Audio commentary by Nolan
  • New interview with Nolan
  • Chronological rendering of the story
  • Side-by-side comparison of three scenes in the film with the shooting script Doodlebug (1997), a three-minute film by Nolan, starring Jeremy Theobald
  • Trailers
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic and programmer Scott Foundas

The American theatrical cut of Brazil is already out on Blu-Ray and it's awesome. The 142 minute cut is highly overrated. I've combined my Criteriorn DVD with my Blu-ray and won't have to make the double dip. The Qatsi trilogy from Criterion is exciting!

BRAZIL! FINALLY! As I mentioned on their Facebook page, their previous November announcement of Rashomon got me excited, but Brazil is the one I've waited for forever. I held out on buying the 3-disc DVD hoping that a blu-ray update would show up. Aside from this, I've been very curious to check out Following. Aside from his remake of Insomnia, it's the only Nolan film I've yet to see.

There has been a lot of contention regarding what the aspect ratio of Koyaanisqatsi should be. Some say it's widescreen while some vehemantly think it should be full screen. The MGM DVD is 1.85:1. But the IRE DVD, now OOP, commissioned by Godfrey Reggio himself, was in full screen 1.33:1. The Criterion edition, apparently with Reggio's participation, will be 1.85:1. All this leads to a whole lot of confusion...

Qatsi Trilogy? And to think we were all excited about Brazil two days ago! Let's launch this rocket!
(Three-and-a-half-ilogy, actually, if you count getting "Anima Mundi" on the bonus features.)

I remember actually buying one of those Kickback charity DVD-R's for $100, just to help Reggio pay his legal bills, get out of the hole and finish filming Naqoyqatsi...That was back when we thought we'd literally never see the original on SD DVD.

Time Bandits is better than Brazil, but Gilliam's best is The Fisher King. I'd love to see Criterion do that one. But then it's actually an entertaining movie with a coherent narrative so it's probably too mundane and bourgeois for Criterion fans. Yes, more Cronenberg, Stillman, maybe some Baumbach. :-/
