I doubt it's La Dolce Vita since that already got a release in the U.K from the 4K source (unless it's gone OOP).

Malkovich does make a lot of sense though, much more than Fellini

And it is the 20th anniversary of Malkovich, so I'm pretty sure its that.

I'm up for Being John Malkovich since the studio disc is pretty lacklustre - but I'd also love a UK Blu-ray for my favourite Kaufman/Jonze collaboration, Adaptation. I'm sure that's possible through Arrow's Sony deal, and far more their wheelhouse since it seems a little too modern/mainstream for MoC or Indicator. Fingers are crossed for both! :)

Those folks on the other Forum are speculating the 7 1/2 is for the length of film. They mentioned a Lav Diaz film or Satantango. I’m not sure about the former but I can’t see the latter. Arbelos did the restoration and said the bluray isn’t coming till 2020. They wouldn’t be OK with Arrow releasing it at least 6 months prior. It hasn’t even toured yet.

Couldn’t it be a hat or shoe size? I hate Arrow clues since they don’t play fair, so I’m not invested in solving, but I find it hard to believe even they would clue running time

Those are lazy ass clues if that’s what it is. Better off with no clues at all.

With the Jissoji set finally coming out I was trying to think of the last boxset that came out from the Academy line. It feels like it's been a long time. And I'm strictly talking about Academy's multi-film boxsets like the upcoming Jissoji (i.e like Godard, Rohmer, Yoshida), not collections like Makhmalbaf's Poetic Trilogy that didn't come in a box or even single film boxes like Eight Hours Don't Make a Day and Ludwig.

That's arguably a single film, and anyway, all that came out then was the standard edition--the limited edition was released in 2016

The Godard, Guitry, Jia, and Kore-eda sets were all early 2018, not that long ago really

Ah yep, forgot that was the re-release. Kore-Eda set was the one before that in March 2018.

Ah ok. I think between announcements and all of the delays it just felt like a long time.
