I assume that the rights for these films would revert to production company Les Films du Carrosse, likely controlled by Truffaut's estate and not by one of the big French distributors. It's possible these could go to Janus/Criterion, but if a different French distributor buys the library, they may find another home. The only other company I can think that would license these for the long haul is Cohen Media Group. Otherwise, Janus is the go-to for foreign-language films looking for a forever home. If they're licensed piecemeal, Janus may only bother if new masters are created at the same time.

Don't know any movie and since I have a limited budget, nothing for me.

let's see:
Disappointed by the recent announcements of Eureka, Criterion, Arrow video, Twilight Time. (doesn't really matter because I'm way behind my Bluray purchases)
Now looking forward to Arrow Academy! :D

(Plague Dogs! Plague Dogs! Plague Dogs! Plague Dogs! Image)

I know, I'm difficult, but I buy the absolute necessary now.
Currently unemployed Greek living in Greece right now, so I guess you get the idea! :lol:

the most exciting title of the bunch if the best of Sam Fuller's worst films.

If you like either of the respective genres, I think the releases of Brutal Tales of Chivalry and the Yuen Woo-ping/Jackie Chan titles are pretty exciting. I'll probably go for the MoC release of the later two (assuming they are releasing Snake) but unless Arrow is going to release the eight Brutal Tales films in a box, I'm absolutely going to pick this first one from TT.

I'm surprised you folks are so cool on the very solid Who'll Stop the Rain, but there wasn't a whole lot of enthusiasm for Reisz's The French Leiutenant's Woman, either.
More Tuesday Weld in HD is always a good thing.

Man in the Moon is nice, too. Not top-tier Mulligan, and a bit melodramatic, but it's anchored by some really great performances.

HELL AND HIGH WATER is a magnificently composed film ('Scope, natch), and I'm excited to see it coming out (though reports that it is not among Fuller's most successful works—in terms of drama, anyway—are indeed accurate.) SNAKE and DRUNKEN are both treasures, too, though I suspect their gang of converts have mostly been found already.

Hell and High Water is the only Fuller film I've seen and chose not to own. (I've not seen Shark or the post-White Dog films.) I'll wager it's because Fuller wrote from an already existing script that it's fairly conventional and somewhat of a dud. There are a couple of suspenseful moments on the submarine and a few injected doses of war realism in a couple of places, but overall it's fairly feeble and not comparable to the usual quality of his films.

Hell and High Water would be a hard pause at $11 from Kino Lorber. At $30, it's an easy pass. Plus, a Fox Fuller title that's HD ready? Wake me when MOC puts it out in a few months and I'll reconsider

I will eventually pick up Inferno as I am committed to supporting 50s 3D, even though I've been able to see this one already, and it's only really good in the last 20-25 minutes, IMO.

I haven't seen any of the other films, so on the TT watch list they go. I'll probably start with the Jackie Chan films as they seem the most likely to sell out due to a dedicated fan base.

Received my copy of Chilly Scenes of Winter here in the UK this week, haven't viewed the film since chancing upon it via a satellite channel during a sick day in the mid 90's.

Heard's performance makes the film, understated, heartfelt and genuinely likeable as Charles, the lovelorn Salt lake City civil servant. Mary Beth Hurt also worth a mention, like Lisa Eichorn in a film around the same time, Cutter's Way aka Cutter & Bone, I struggle to think why these weren't breakout performances for them both, and why their careers somewhat floundered in film post late 70's / early 80's.

Great supporting cast; Kenneth Macmillan, Peter Reigert, Nora Heflin and the wonderful Gloria Grahame round out a film that went pretty much under the radar *certainly in the UK* but is one of my personal favourites. Possible accusations that it rode on the coat tails of the vaguely similar Annie Hall (in the unrequited love motif, and certainly in sentiment), though the source novel was written in 1976 predating Allen's landmark. *haven't read the novel but believe it to be fairly authentic*.

Only gripe is when checking the subs, there's a misheard / misunderstood line from one of Charles's witticisms;

'I read a magazine article on Jacques Cousteau, where a dolphin grew so fond of him, she always had her head out of the water to see him. Got sunburned. Christ, even if you're a dolphin love gives you a headache'

The subs read; 'Christ, even if you're a dolphin lover you get a headache'. Doesn't even make sense.

Finally biting the bullet on some Woody Allen titles. Between this and the Criterion Store flash sale, I'm a bit tapped out.

Thanks for posting about the sale. Picked up several random titles for $10-15 I never would have gone for at $30. Would've been nice to get The Bride Wore Black, but hopefully a superior edition is forthcoming from another label (despite their imperfections I decided Mermaid and Adele H were worth $10 apiece).

I don't normally buy from TT, but I love Interiors, so I bought their disc. Whoever this Julie Kirgo is, she ain't much of a film scholar, because her writing - both the liner notes and even the damn synopsis on the back cover! - belie the fact that she watched this movie once and barely paid attention. It's like she got Geraldine Paige's character mixed up with Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. "Controlling madness", "caught in her web", talk of how she brilliantly manipulates people. And the way she reaches to turn the movie into some metaphor for benign WASPy anti-semitism? Good grief.

They can't possibly produce such an awful product on a regular basis, can they? And still be in business? And claiming the mantle of "film historians"? Jesus.

I stopped listening to TT's commentaries because of Kirgo, I really have trouble with her. (Redman is OK.) I forget which Truffaut it was (Mermaid or The Bride, probably), but she makes it sound like she's a Truffaut expert but then she couldn't put some of his films in the correct chronological order.

You want bad? The liner notes for Twilight Samurai are laughably bad. To be fair, I recall her liner notes for Killer Elite being ok, but other than that, I can't think of any that are worth reading.

Maybe, just maybe, a TT title that caught my attention: Gran Bollito / Black Journal (1977)

If I buy this, then the next day Indicator announces their edition :?. Would rather buy theirs.

What studio's are the common BLurays in Indicator and TT?
I would prefer Indicator's too, since they are cheaper.
But if there are some TT blurays from a studio that indicator hasn't got a deal with, I'll buy the TT ones.
