That Obscure Object of Desire Blu-ray

Posted November 5, 2012 06:31 PM by Webmaster

Lionsgate FilmsLionsgate Films have officially announced that they will release on Blu-ray director Luis Bunuel's That Obscure Object of Desire (1977), starring Fernando Rey, Carole Bouquet and ┴ngela Molina. The release will be available for purchase on January 29th.

Nominated for two Academy Awards including Best Foreign Language Film and Best Writing, Luis Bu˝uel's final film explodes with eroticism, bringing full circle to the director's lifelong preoccupation with the darker side of desire. Bu˝uel regular Fernando Rey plays Matthieu, an urbane widower, tortured by his lust for the elusive Conchita. With subversive flare, Bu˝uel uses two different actresses in the lead role - Carole Bouquet, a sophisticated French beauty and Angela Molina, a Spanish coquette. Drawn from Pierre Louys' 1898 novel, La Femme et le Pantin, That Obscure Object of Desire is a dizzying game of sexual politics punctuated by a terror that harkens back to Bu˝uel's brilliant surrealistic beginnings.

Special Features:
  • Arbitrary Desire (interview with Jean-Claude CarriŔre)
  • Interview with Carlos Saura
  • Double Dames (interview with Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina)
  • A portrait of Luis Bunuel (interview with Pierre Lary and Edmond Richard)

Note: Blu-ray.com has already reviewed the UK release of That Obscure Object of Desire, courtesy of StudioCanal, here.

@Peter McM - they lost the rights along with all of those other StudioCanal titles a couple of years back.

This movie tripped me out. Definite purchase at a good price. And I also didn't know Criterion lost the rights.

Yup. Along with Diary of a Chambermaid, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, The Phantom Liberty, and The Milky Way. I believe it was maybe a year and a half or so ago.
I picked them all up when it was announced that they were going OOP. I still prefer a Criterion dvd to a non-Criterion blu-ray of the same film.
I'm holding on to my Criterion dvd's of Straw Dogs, RAN, and Contempt.

Oh, come on. Criterion are not the only distributors capable of decent rendering.

There's nothing wrong with MGM's Straw Dogs Blu

@JohnCarpenterLives - this one is pretty good even if it's not criterion, you can check Dr. Svet review on the StudioCanal release, it even has decent extras compared to the Criterion dvd.
