Just think of the "C" as a clamp/vice that takes the poster on the DVD cover and squeezes it down for the Blu-ray cover. It's all sorts of charming then!

The new Film Forum rep calendar includes a week-long run in August of Rene Clair's La beauté du diable (1950) from Cohen, so one hopes that's in the pipeline for a disc release.

Of course, after I imported the French Blu-ray ... but it's really terrific, even if Armond likes it.

It's good to see Two Men in Manhattan getting an upgrade from the French Gaumont a la demande disc. Cohen's 'Classics of French Cinema' imprint is promising, hopefully Melville's When You Read this Letter will follow suit.

Is there anywhere that's selling The Damned at a decent discount? It doesn't seem to be listed at importcds, and everywhere else seems to be offering a discount of at most about 25-30%.

E1 must be Cohen's distributor. Cohen have licensed some other titles from Gaumont - The Damned, The Bronte Sisters, Two Men in Manhattan

Ah, it's just that all those other Blus at Amazon.com are listed as "Studio: Cohen Media Group", but this René Clair Blu is listed as "E1".

Whenever I find a site with a poor search function, it's usually easier to google "The Damned site:importcds.com".

October 22
Rachid Bouchareb's Just Like a Woman (2012)
October 29
René Clair's The Beauty of the Devil (aka La beauté du diable) (1950)
November 12
Ziad Doueiri's The Attack (2012)

Two Men in Manhattan will feature a "conversation between critics Jonathan Rosenbaum and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky." Not two people I'd expect to see talking about Melville, but it should be interesting nonetheless.

Wow, their Nov slate really looks great!

On a separate note, can somebody ask them to change their cover art for Two Men in Manhattan? It seems that they are not reachable, but they need to know that some of their cover arts really suck, especially this one and the one for The Bronte Sisters!!!

I thought that Thief of Bagdad's cover looked abominable on the computer, but it actually doesn't look bad in person. I think the big C just doesn't work digitally.
