Year of the Dragon (March)
Desperate Hours (Cimino) (March)
Jamaica Inn (April)
Heaven Knows What (2014) (June)
Panic In Needle Park (June)

Year of the Dragon will be their #2 Ultra Collector release and Panic in Needle Park is rumored to be their #3 (Body Double being the #1).

I recently purchased the Bodega Blu-ray of Saura's Flamenco, Flamenco. The contrast is much too high, in my opinion. Granted, part of this is inherent to the film itself which uses strongly directional lighting, but I don't remember the contrast being nearly so severe on the Mongrel DVD, which I rented a few times before deciding I wanted my own copy. Maybe I'll rent it again some time and make a proper comparison, but going on memory alone the Mongrel DVD seems preferable to the Blu-ray.

I've had a chance to compare the two now, and they are not so different after all: there is more contrast in the DVD than I remember. It's just that approximately the same absolute level of contrast looks that much harsher when the image is sharper.

Out of curiousity, is anyone here getting the Carlotta Out 1 vice the Arrow Rivette set? The Carlotta arrived for me today and I haven't put the excellent booklet down in order to watch the film yet. Also, the artwork for this set is wonderful, earthtones and all. So there.

Many of the discs have literally the same encode as the Arrow release, and the subtitles were also a joint effort, so it really boils down to whether you just want the Out 1 duo or the other three features as well.

What about the Rosenbaum essay from the Carlotta booklet? Is that included in the Arrow set?

I've got the Carlotta set, lovely...do they have any plans for releasing the three other movies?

Very nice. The upcoming Signal One disc will be from the same source, and will have different extras of course (and presumably be much more affordable, though booklet-less). These fancy Carlotta editions do look handsome though.

Carlotta's most recent announcements include a Borowczyk box set. Almost seems like everything Arrow has put out is included here.

Four of those covers look identical to the covers used by Arrow (five if you include the boxset cover featuring an image from Immoral Tales). What's the deal? Are Arrow/Carlotta some kind of joint operation?

They have a very good relationship since some years. I suppose this is just an extension of that.

It's certainly 100% legitimate, but I believe the Carlotta release isn't English-friendly at all (a few snippets from the extras aside).

Studio Canal is releasing the movie on video, Carlotta only has the re-release theatrical rights.

The current Canadian Blu-Ray (if still in print) looks quite good (compared to all previous releases).
