I'm not sure if this is old news since I admittedly don't follow Visconti DVD releases as much as others, but Koch Lorber will be releasing Visconti's Ludwig onto R1 DVD this fall.

I don't believe there is a cover yet.

Ha! Unbelievable ... Ludwig is one of those titles that they've been promising since 2000 or so, back in the Fox Lorber days. A rival for Fantoma's Dead Pigeon on Beethoven Street as the most delayed DVD of all time....

And it'll probably look like crap, of course.

Look like crap? There may be some combing, but their two recent Godard releases were pretty stellar. What makes you think it will be crap?

Ah, excellent! I've been curious about this film for ages. How does it stand in the Visconti canon?

Sorry but the Koch Lorber disc does not look worse than the Image. They look fairly similar all around with the Koch disc showing a bit more detail at times and the Image at other times. For dvdbeaver to continue to take these harsh stances against something far more trivial once you look at the screen caps... well, it's not below them, but it's certainly beginning to wear on me. With it's sensationalism, and often undeserving animosity, I can't help but see them as the Fox News of DVD Review sights. A few baseless tidbits:
Wow - what a mess!

the combing is horrendous with lots of artefacts - worse than the improper-standard 'ghosting' on the old Image disc.

Gee whiz - couldn't someone do better? This is awful.

Shameful.
Now look at those screencaps and ask if those are exaggerations.

Just a matter of personal taste perhaps, but the Koch Lorber caps look awfully contrasty to my eyes--quite a few blown-out highlights. The Image has a smoother range of grays.

Ludwig finally coming October 14:
The two-disc set presents the digitally remastered Ludwig in its original widescreen 2.35:1 aspect ratio and Dolby Digital sound. Cut by its producer and distributors upon its initial release, the movie has been restored to its 238-minute length. Koch Lorber Films presents it in Italian with English subtitles, and extra features include documentaries about director Visconti, writer Susan Cecchi D’Amico, costume designer Petro Tosi and more.

Run Time : 238 mins. + extras/2 Discs

Old news, dude.

They are also releasing a two-disc set of Chabrol's Madame Bovary in November -- a supposedly newer print than the OOP MGM disc.

No, as far as I know. I did receive a copy from my wholesaler last week, but don't know anything about retailers though

I'll try to do this as soon as I start watching the box (which I really want to enjoy - in the proper sequence, etc.) - if this still be for any CF member's interest at that time

Whoa, nice. The MGM is non-anamorphic and the R2 is cropped from 1.66 to 1.78, so this is good news indeed

I bought the Ferreri set from Ebay for 55$ delivered :P
However,i missed an earlier auction which ended at 45$ delivered :oops:
So far i've tracked 11 Ferreri flicks on English-friendly DVDs:
The 8 in the boxset,The Harem as well as Dillinger is Dead and Liza from Raro Video.

Just received Koch Lorber's Marco Ferreri box set, which contains the rarely seen uncut 113 minute version of BYE BYE MONKEY, almost 20 minutes longer than any of the transfers available previously (such as Image's Region 1 DVD). The main addition is a scene with William Berger, who was completely eliminated from the shorter variant (though, curiously, he's still not credited).

According to Koch, the 2-DVD set includes a bonus documentary, “Isabelle Huppert: A Life of Acting”.
