Rats are part of living in NYC, no? I guess you wouldn't want to get bitten, so having one in a dark theater is a little unnverving, but I'm sort of unfazed even if I see one in a restauarant.
I mean, raccoons, skunks, possums, deers and coyotes were very much a part of living in my hometown, and I generally wasn't fazed by them either, but it's a bit different when you're both inside a room together.

Especially when it's a dark room in which you're supposed to remain quite static.

I wonder what implications this will have for the remaining Buster Keaton restorations since there was all the awkwardness with the competing restorations, some released by Kino and the others by Cohen.

I assume nothing. All that is happening is Kino is assuming the physical distribution of Cohen's discs (all the work producing extras, encoding, etc, is still done by Cohen) which was previously handled by Sony and Entertainment One.

So Kino will continue to handle physical distribution for competing editions of Lobster and Cohen restorations of the Keaton films?

I would assume so. Arent the Kino Keaton releases OOP?

Melbourne cinema, The Astor, has long had a resident cat. Makes we wonder if this wasn’t part of the reason in the beginning.

Isn't this why everyone loves Bodega Cats even though they're a health issue? Cats > rats

Not that I'm aware of. The old Kino Keatons are out of print but they only started releasing the Lobster restorations with the Short Films collection in 2016 which appears to be still in print. They also released double features of The General / Three Ages and Steamboat Bill Jr. / College both in 2017 and most recently Our Hospitality a little less than one year ago. These (unlike the older Kino blus of Keaton) are all based on the Lobster restorations which are a bit contentiously running simultaneously with and independently of the Cohen restorations.

That's not really a thing in Australia, nor is the name (which I had to look up!). Other than The Astor, I'm pretty sure I've only ever seen cats in second-hand bookstores.

And I can tell you when I first came across that cat at the Astor (decided to curl up on my feet), I did jump!

The Raccoon Cafe will definitely be on the itinerary if I ever get to Seoul.

Thanks for sharing that! Looking forward to the next volume. As far as my question, it does show they will continue to release the Cohen restorations but I wonder if they will release any future Lobster restorations as well.

Amazon Prime has two versions of Tavernier's documentary on French cinema. One is called "My Journey through French Cinema", which is 192 minutes long. The other is called "Journeys through French Cinema", which is the longer version in 8 parts. Of these, Cohen has issued the first as a Blu Ray disc. Does anyone know if they intend to issue the longer version in the physical format?
Just announced
Coming to Blu-ray March 30th from Cohen Media Group and Kino Lorber!

Journeys Through French Cinema (2020)
Directed by Bertrand Tavernier
2-Disc Set

My Journey Through French Cinema (2017), Bertrand Tavernier’s César-nominated three-and-a-half-hour tour through French film history, was too short to introduce audiences to all that he wanted to share. In this new eight-part series, the acclaimed director of such films as Coup de Torchon and ‘Round Midnight guides us through a roster of filmmakers both influential and forgotten, explores how his country’s cinema was shaped by the German occupation and changed again through the New Wave, spotlights little-known female filmmakers, and more. Subjects include: René Clément, Henri-Georges Clouzot, Julien Duvivier, Henri Decoin, Claude Autant-Lara, as well as composers who made movie music an art in and of itself, far from the Hollywood spotlight.

Includes:
*Optional English subtitles

I asked Cohen about their Rivette releases on a different forum that shall not be named - Gang of Four is coming soon, followed by Love on the Ground. They're planning limited theatrical runs for Up, Down, Fragile and Secret Defense before putting those out, so it may not be until 2022.

The freshly-registered Cohen rep posting in the Kino thread also soft announced some others titles:
Regarding [Joan Micklin Silver's] A FISH IN THE BATHTUB, we are hoping to have this out by the end of the year or possibly just into 2022. We just finished a 4K restoration of the Joan Micklin Silver film HESTER STREET and are looking at some festivals in the fall, with a limited theatrical release after. The plan at the moment is to release HESTER STREET, along with FISH IN A BATHTUB and the Raphael Silver films ON THE YARD (1978) and A WALK ON THE MOON (1987) at or around the same time through our friends at Kino Lorber.

Whoa. I never though we'd even get On the Yard on DVD.
