It definitely exists. Mary M. Wiles' book on Rivette says it had a seven-week run at a single theater in Paris starting in April 2002. That's supported by the CNC's database of visas and classifications, which has an entry for a Va savoir plus dated to the same month, with a listed length of 226 minutes/6,124 meters.

I was being facetious.

Remember, many of Cohen's assets derive from the library of Raymond Rohauer who famously used a stopwatch to calculate fees for showing clips from films on which he claimed copyright. :)

The Day the Earth Caught Fire (Val Guest, 1961)

New 2K restoration, apparently the same as used on the BFI release on which Cohen collaborated.

The BFI BD was from a 4K transfer. I don't recall if there was a downscale at 2K in the restoration workflow though.

According to pro-b in the comments, the scan was 4k but the restoration work was done at 2k.

Apparently Cohen is putting out The Official Story, which is odd as just as soon as two months ago it was prominently featured as a premier Criterion title on Filmstruck

Where's Cohen streaming these days? They're no longer on Hulu and I'm pretty sure they're not a part of Filmstruck.

Just got the Chabrol set in and it has unadvertised bonuses: commentaries on L'Enfer and Rien ne va plus from Wade Major and Andy Klein (who did the great Lavardin coms) and a 40-minute Kent Jones interview with Francois Cluzet

Since they said they were planning theatrical releases, it could be a while before any of the titles show up on home video.

Apart from the aspect ratio, is everyone happy with Howards End?
Because I don't see a high quality encoding judging from the screenshots.

I hope Maurice isn't that way.

Good point. I just didn't know if all of those titles would be getting theatrical re-releases. I would think only the more popular films would, but I didn't know if there had been any news on that front.

I think it's a fair bet that after a few have built up these Merchant Ivory titles will be licensed to one of the UK labels (Cohen bought the library outright worldwide), probably in Box Set form, who usually have a better history of encoding. I'd expect similar from the Rivettes once they begin coming out.

What don't you like about it? Dreadful noise from Criterion appears gone, and assuming the elements are in great shape, a 4k scan is not going to have pervasive and significant grain. Looks great to me.

Cohen was suppose to release The Salesman. It has gone up for preorder by Sony. Could this have to do with an Oscar win?

Amazon Studios actually bought the U.S. rights for The Salesman and teamed up with Cohen for the theatrical release. I don't think Cohen was ever supposed to release it on video—this article from last year specifies that Cohen "is the US theatrical partner." Amazon titles have come out on physical media through a few different outfits, but Sony handles most of them. A similar thing happened with The Handmaiden, which Amazon handed off to Magnolia for theatrical distribution and to Sony for DVD/Blu. At least this time Sony announced a BD up front.

All recent Cohen releases are showing up as being released Sony. Looks like they just distribute them.

Amazon.com lists a few Cohen titles as Sony releases, but I'm pretty sure that's not what's going on here. Sony put out their own press release for The Salesman that makes no mention of Cohen and includes cover art that is clearly not for a Cohen release.

I edited one of the extras for Cohen.

Not that that means that Sony couldn't have taken the project over in more recent weeks (I signed off on my contribution in January and have had no involvement since), but Cohen were 100% definitely involved with the Blu-ray at some stage.

Might be a case like Hitchcock/Truffaut, where Cohen is mentioned on the back of the packaging and on the disc itself, but which was released through Universal with Universal-style packaging (e.g. the "HD PICTURE AND THEATER QUALITY SOUND" banner on the back). Cohen could've put the disc together themselves and handed it off to Universal, and maybe they're doing the same with Sony and The Salesman.
