Thanks for the info, Marc! I've heard only great things about Jules et Jim, so I'm sure to blind buy it on release. Always up for more Renoir, and Young Torless sounds pretty good (awesome cover). I've never seen any Antonioni, but this disc sure sounds packed. Already shaping up to be another great year..Bring on some more Bergman!
According to Criterion's homepage, it's two discs: "Michelangelo Antonioni's classic examination of modern alienation, L'eclisse, will be released by Criterion in early 2005. The two-disc special edition..."
Specs are now also in for the Andrzej Wajda boxset:
Oh goodness... I'll definitely buy "Jules and Jim" and probably "L'Ecclise," but the rest I'll add to my Netflix queue. I love Criterion, and am usually willing to buy their films blind, but I just can't afford all of these DVDs...
Yes I hope Criterion will release 'Face To Face' in 2005 - this would be a great follow-up to their superb sets of 'Scenes From A Marriage' and 'Fanny And Alexander', not to mention all their other Bergman releases.
The March line-up from Criterion is awesome - Jules and Jim, L'eclisse and the Wajda trilogy in one month! Can the rest of the year get any better than this!?
I remember reading that a week ago, but assumed the specs mentioned on the DVD features page meant it was only a 1-discer. But I think you're right, since their features aren't always accurate at first.
When is the new, re-mastered PLAYTIME coming out!!! On another note - cool releases, didn't think Jules and Jim was so close on the horizon. The Sword of Doom looks like definite blind-buy material... flippin' cool cover art!
Of course the total winner in this group is the one people here keep ignoring - The River. A wonderful picture, with great photography and simple poetic direction. A masterpiece - very excited to see the transfer.
Great ! I have been looking forward to L'Eclisse and Jules and Jim for a long time. I don't know why L'Eclisse took so long because the Martin Scorsese documentary My Voyage to Italy featured clips from a nearly pristine print.
