...yet another title I'm not *entirely* sure couldn't have been released under the MoC imprint. (I know this delineation doesn't actually matter, and I don't even really like the film this time around, but will look forward to the full details).

Glad to see Cure getting a Blu release, maybe a Criterion is on the way! It's been on their streaming services forever (or at least it was on Hulu for a long time). And of course, Marty is in Kino hell over here.


As someone noted over at Blu-ray.com, it'll be interesting to see what they do about the aspect ratio. Perhaps they will offer different options, like they did for Shane, though that ended up spilling onto a second disc (and was Limited Edition; still one of my favourite MoC editions).

And yes, Cure is a brilliant surprise! I was wondering if more Kiyoshi Kurosawa would arrive on Blu-ray soon after Arrow's brilliant Pulse release, but figured MoC were more interested in his contemporary efforts (especially as they're probably both easier to sign, and be in better shape transfer-wise). So I'm very happy to be able to finally get this through MoC of all labels.

I found a copy of David Kalat's book on J-horror in Oxfam last year, and this film was obviously mentioned a lot, so I'm looking forward to seeing it for the first time. And whilst we're talking J-horror, my favourite to date would have to be Takashi Shimizu's Ju-on: The Grudge, which I noticed was one of the 'most wanted' titles in this Arrow's 2017 poll, so I'm hoping they'll deliver that eventually (maybe even with its sequel, and/or the previous TV movies).

Many of these films were the kind of thing Tartan used to put out on DVD and I'd find somewhere down the line rummaging through the bargain section of Blockbuster, so it's great to finally see the best of them given an HD upgrade, plentiful extras and a decent bit of literature from labels like Arrow, Eureka and Third Window. Let's hope it continues despite the competitive nature of the market, and I'd love to see some Korean stuff from the same era show up (I notice 88 Films are starting to dig into that particular niche).

Why not? They've released three other K. Kurosawa titles under MoC so far, one of which was notably a 'genre' film.

Maybe I used a double negative which confused the meaning, but I meant why the one Best Picture winning title is not 'worthy' of the MoC imrpint.

With Criterion hinting at Bull Durham, sigh, I'm thrilled that MoC will give us a Cure. Bluray. Thanks MoC.

Ah sorry yeah, no idea why they've opted for Eureka Classics on that one...unless that's a typo. I guess we'll find out tomorrow.

Then again, I thought both Fleischer titles would be perfectly acceptable as MoC, and some people even argued for The Party or Rapture to be 'recognised'. Who knows how they make these decisions?
