"Yi Yi" from Criterion Great news for fans of the film, particularly those of you who missed out on Starmax's release from about 5 years ago (the only worthwhile NTSC transfer). Fox Lorber's DVD is one of the worst transfer atrocities ever, ranking down there with their "RAN" release. But once again Criterion rides to the rescue! The only good thing about FL's disc was the Yang commentary. Criterion's doing a new one! I wish I knew how to post the cover (perhaps someone can help out), but once again: perfection. It's a shot of Yang-Yang from the rear, focusing on the back of his neck, a perspective that of course is crucial to his photography obsession and the themes of the film. Very beautiful colors, too (the red drapes and pink balloons from Yang-Yang's uncle's wedding celebration that opens the film). Needless to say, I'm thrilled!
