    DVD Planet added Hiroshima Mon Amour, Il Posto, Il Fidanzati, & Ali: Fear Eats The Soul from Criterion to their catalog today. All street on 6/24.

    Hadn't heard about Hiroshima before. Here's the specs according to DVDPlanet:

    Hiroshima was one of those film class movies that I knew was an important film, but which I couldn't stand actually watching. Cool that the CC got another important film to release well, though. I'm sure their version will look much better than the tattered print I saw.

    Finally, I've been waiting for Ali: Fear Eats The Soul since last year. Easily one of my "most wanted" discs.

    Hiroshima is good news as well. Didn't know that was on the way.

    Alain Resnais' Night and Fog is also coming from Criterion on the same date. In an unprecedented move, the disc is only $14.95 (since the film is only 30 minutes and there are no real supplements to speak of).

    I'm real happy to see Hiroshima done by Criterion!!! It's not the easiest movie to sit through, but it is definitely unique and daring, challenging traditional film structure. I'd love for Criterion to do Last Year in Marienbad next, the previous DVD transfer was real poor.
