Capturing the Friedman's.

 

There's a lot great stuff coming this week from the UK:

Adua e le compagne (Antonio Pietrangeli, Italy) C'est la Vie [R2-UK] 16:9

Belleville Rendez-vous (The Triplets of Belleville) (Sylavain Chomet, France) Tartan [R2-UK]

End of Summer (Yasujiro Ozu, Japan) Artificial Eye [R2-UK]

Floating Weeds (Yasujiro Ozu, Japan) Artificial Eye [R2-UK]

The Green Ray (Eric Rohmer, France) Arrow Film [R2-UK]

Santa Sangre (Alexandro Jodorowsky, Mexico/Italy) Anchor Bay [R2-UK]

Sunrise (FW Murnau, US) Eureka [R2-UK]

 

This edition of Sunrise has an even better transfer than the Region 1 disc.

Dr Strangelove Superbit: I don't see a release or an annoucement for that title.

 

I'll buy Best Defense but not until it goes on the bargain shelf. THe lack of supplements etc make this a perfect dvd to hit the bargain bin for $6 to $10.

 

So nothing for me.

That's interesting. Did the BFI restore it for the R2? There's a print that has been touring here in the UK, and it may be from the same source. I am hoping to see it theatrically at some point. My hatred for PAL 25fps deprives me of whatever superiority any domestic DVD release may bring however, since I just wont buy em. A shame as I have to wait until Belleville Rendez-vous appears on R1.... :?

 

As for 27th releases:

 

Alice in Wonderland

The Critic

Time Bandits

 

I'll get Superbit Strangelove IF it is sourced from a new print.

Dan, here's a comparison between the R1 and R2 discs from DVDBeaver. The reviewer, Gary Tooze, gives the edge to the R1 because it's a tad sharper, but I think the tonality of the Eureka disc is better; look at the improved detail in the shadows. The R2 has the same extras, plus a documentary not found on the R1 disc, and they're all spread over 2 discs, yielding a higher bit-rate.

A close race there. I think I'd stick with the R1. If the documentary on the R2 is extensive, I will perhaps get it when it?s on sale sometime. For the film itself though, I'm just too pedantic to accept any film configured for 25fps. :?

 

I appreciate the link though, Gary does some good comparisons on a lot of discs. It's a handy resource for those of us who carry more of a taste for classic and foreign films I must admit.
