Yes, as far as I know The Sacrifice, Nostalgia and the Voyage in Time documentary are owned by some Italian company. I could be wrong, but I know for sure Mosfilm doesn’t own them.

As for Andrei Rublev, aren't they working on rereleasing it on Blu? There are rumors it would be similar to The New World, where they would include a few (at least 2) cuts of the film. Cannot wait!

This is the sort of hard-hitting, in-depth analysis that always brings me back.

If and when Ikarie XB-1 is released by Criterion, I wonder if they would include the AIP version of the movie, Voyage to the End of the Universe.

The Lure
Vampyr
Fire Walk With Me
Barry Lyndon
Personal Shopper

That seems to be the prevailing assumption of what we're going to see announced later today.

Props to them not sitting on Personal Shopper for another year, they need to start speeding these newer films' releases up

So what does that leave the next likely IFC title(s)? Graduation?

If this Amazon list is correct, I'll be over the moon. Barry Lyndon was so overdue for a release worthy of it. I'm also almost certainly going to be in for FWWM but Vampyr on Blu-Ray? How much can they really salvage from the difficult source material unless it's a 4k resto?

Why does IAMMMMW need another release? End of print run?

Re-issue as a non-dual format edition?

Phantom pages up for at least of these.

Very excited to see Barry Lyndon. Saw the restoration with a live orchestra a few months ago, so I've seen a 35mm print, the blu-ray, and that restoration all in the last two years, and honestly they were all pretty close to each other in quality, and I certainly don't recall any major differences in color timing. Of course getting it in the right aspect ratio on home video will be worth it alone.

Also, it opened with a black and white Warners logo, not the 1970s Warner logo.

If Criterion are releasing the restoration of Barry Lyndon, what are the chances they release that long-overdue restoration of A Clockwork Orange?

Edit: re-looking at the caps on caps-a-holic, I would say the restoration does a better job of re-producing the intended "softness" in a few shots in BL.

I still think 2001 is on their docket as well. It was a laser disc.

I'm still patiently awaiting Criterion to use their WB resources on Lolita (which was also a laserdisc and a much better film that Lyndon or 2001 and far more neglected)

It really shouldn't surprise anyone if they got all the WB Kubricks.

Regardless of my own thoughts on the director, it'd be a smart licensing move for them to grab all of the ones WB will relinquish

I'm less sure, now that WB has been releasing a lot of catalog titles on 4K as of late. This would be ideal for such a release next year as it's the 50th anniversary.

Now that Disney's onboard, surely it's a matter of time until we see the boutique labels at least dipping their toes into UHD?
