"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

No Major Dundee for 2012.Yeah, I believe they said we'd be getting it by the end of the year and that the delay on the title was minor. Must have been a bigger delay than they thought. Hope to hear an update on Dundee's status.

I never did get around to buying the Spanish DVDs of The Rains Of Ranchipur and Beloved Infidel. Now I'm glad! I do have Bonjour Tristesse on DVD. I'll have another look at that because I remember it being so good that I probably don't need to upgrade. It's a good film and gave David Niven one of his best roles.I have the Spanish DVD of The Rains Of Ranchipur & it does look really good. I'd think it was a down-convert from an HD master, so with that extra bit of sharpness that HD Blu brings we could be talking about quality on par with The Egyptian. I do have a question about Hugo Friedhofer's fantastic music score. A few years back all they could find was 15 minutes of usable music tapes, have they found any more? It would be great to have an isolated music track, probably asking too much for all of it, but hopefully more that 15 minutes.

Lost Horizon graduating from Sony MOD DVD-R to a limited issue Twilight Blu-ray is a compelling precedent. I guess one shouldn't be surprised to see another title or two from Sony's MOD library take this route in 2013.
