It opened at Film Forum on February 10, released on DVD November 7. A very precise 9 months.

What's really throwing off the average right now is The Milky Way, shown at Film Forum June of 2003 and still no DVD, 3 1/2 years later! Of course, Contempt still holds the record: 5 years and 5 months from re-release to DVD.

I am very glad to hear that these two are coming... yay, more Buñuel and Resnais.

on an unrelated note: I believe that I read somewhere that Buñuel was influenced by Marienbad when creating The Exterminating Angel (in regards to repeated scenes)...

let's hope that The Exterminating Angel, The Milky Way and Simon of the Desert (an extra with The Milky Way? it is a short, and it does share the religious themes) are coming in 2007 (as one release in 2006 was not nearly enough... god I feel like a junky just waiting for a fix)

I would prefer that Simon of the Desert be either separate (as Night and Fog) or as an extra of the Exterminating Angel (because they both have Silvia Pinal and both where made in México)

I guess it would probably best be paired with Nazarin or Exterminating Angel... but however they'll (theoretically) package it, I'll be happy

Next up looks to be Jean-Pierre Melville's "Le Doulos," which opens June 29th at Film Forum.

Marienbad gets the bump once again. I don't fully blame them for wanting to take advantage of the great press from Army of Shadows and Melville, but still, they've been teasing us with the Resnais for quite a while now.

Actually, we got one more before "Marienbad." Rialto is also putting out Beineix's "Diva." It starts at Film Forum on November 2nd.

Great, I'll be moving to New York to attend CCNY in Jan for Spring semester, just in time to catch "Marienbad"!

the DVD does appear to be out of print.

Many people I've met who hear I'm a "cinephile" often ask or recommend me Diva.
not to mention my Mother, Sister, Uncle, Grandfather, etc... often bring up the film (although they never recommend it to me as they now I like "depressing movies").

Diva was THE middlebrow arthouse hit of the 1980s. For many people of a certain age it defines arty French cinema. I found it enjoyable enough at the time (when I had seen hardly any foreign language films), but it hadn't aged at all well when I saw it again in the mid 90s. By that time it was looking a bit like a very long episode of Miami Vice art directed to hell. It should still have some residual kitsch value, at least.

According to Film Forum's site, next up after "Marienbad" is a re-release of "Contempt," and a theatrical run of Robert Hamer's "It Always Rains on Sunday."

Is that seriously the best poster design that Rialto could come up with for Marienbad?

I actually like the Marienbad poster a lot. It's very similar to the one they did for Elevator to the Gallows. Did you see it somewhere or are you referring to the picture on the Rialto site? What Rialto has up, the still and the title, isn't the poster.
