Code Unknown (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Criterion Collection (Direct) Brand: CRITERION COLLECTIONS
One of the worldâ€™s most influential and provocative filmmakers, the Academy Awardâ€“winning Austrian director Michael Haneke (Amour) diagnoses the social maladies of contemporary Europe with devastating precision and staggering artistry. His 2000 dramaÂ Code Unknown,Â the first of his many films made in France, may be his most inspired work. Composed almost entirely of brilliantly shot, single-take vignettes focusing on characters connected to one seemingly minor incident on a Paris street, Hanekeâ€™s filmâ€”with an outstanding international cast headlined by Juliette Binoche (Three Colors: Blue)â€”is a revelatory take on racial inequality and the failure of communication in todayâ€™s increasingly diverse European landscape. DIRECTOR-APPROVEDÂ BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURESÂ â€¢ New, restored 2K digital transfer, approved by director Michael Haneke, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack â€¢ New interview with Haneke â€¢ Introduction by Haneke from 2001 â€¢Â Filming Haneke,Â a 2000 making-of documentary featuring interviews with Haneke, actor Juliette Binoche, and producer Marin Karmitz, as well as on-set footage of cast and crew â€¢ Interview from 2001 in which Haneke discusses the filming of the boulevard sequences â€¢ New interview with film scholar Roy Grundmann â€¢ Trailers â€¢ New English subtitle translation â€¢ PLUS: An essay by critic Nick James
A Room with a View
Manufacturer: The Criterion Collection Brand: CRITERION COLLECTIONS
Merchant Ivory Productions, led by director James Ivory and producer Ismail Merchant (Howards End), became a household name withÂ A Room with a View,Â the first of their extraordinary adaptations of E. M. Forster novels. A cherubic nineteen-year-old Helena Bonham Carter plays Lucy Honeychurch, a young, independent-minded, upper-class Edwardian woman who is trying to sort out her burgeoning romantic feelings, divided between an enigmatic free spirit (Leaving Las Vegasâ€™s Julian Sands) she meets on vacation in Florence and the priggish bookworm (Lincolnâ€™s Daniel Day-Lewis) to whom she becomes engaged back in the more corseted Surrey. Funny, sexy, and sophisticated, this gargantuan art-house hit features a sublime supporting castâ€”including Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Judi Dench (Philomena), Denholm Elliott (Raiders of the Lost Ark), Maggie Smith (Downton Abbey)â€”and remains a touchstone of intelligent romantic cinema. DIRECTOR-APPROVEDÂ BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURESÂ â€¢ New 4K digital restoration, supervised by cinematographer Tony Pierce-Roberts, with 2.0 surround Master Audio soundtrack â€¢ New interviews with director James Ivory, Pierce-Roberts, costume designer John Bright, and actors Helena Bonham Carter, Simon Callow, and Julian Sands â€¢ Segment about Merchant Ivory Productions from a 1985 NBC television programÂ â€¢ Trailer â€¢ PLUS: An essay by film critic Farran Smith Nehme
