I believe they just send confirmation that they've received your order. That email says to expect delivery within about a week.

Ok, thanks. I received that one last Friday, just wanted to know if I should expect another when it does indeed ship or not. Thanks again.

I placed my order on 11/23 and never received a shipping notice email. So I called them today and told me my order would be shipping today. Hmmmm, I wonder why a whole week passed before they decided to ship my order?

Nice! I was wondering what would happen to this. I remember when his last film, To Die Like a Man, got great notices - J. Hoberman among others championed it and I think it topped Film Comment or the Village Voice's poll for best undistributed film - but it took two full years after its NYFF debut to appear again in NY, and even then it was a single screening at BAM. I thought The Last Time I Saw Macao was even better.

My order arrived today in perfect shape. The box was sturdy and just the right size for the nine titles. A very nice job, Cinema Guild.

DVD talk reviews the SOKUROV set:

Sokurov: Early Masterworks is a triptych of unburied treasures, each more extraordinary and inspiring than the last, that should stand as a landmark home-video release and a cause for celebration among all North American cinephiles (DVD "Region 1" being at least one territory where these films have rarely been seen and have long been unavailable) worth their salt.

I just noticed that Amazon.com has a placeholder for a Jerichow Blu-ray - is this for real or just something that Amazon have failed to remove..?

Not real, alas. Just Amazon being Amazon.

There's an Amazon.com pre-order link up for the Leviathan Blu-ray with a Sept. release date listed. Hopefully more specs will be forthcoming soon.

I was just going to email Cinema Guild about this yesterday. Very glad to hear that, I was worried I wouldn't be able to watch it before the Documentaries List Project lists were due.

I'm still holding out hope to catch Leviathan at one festival or another around these parts - but if that doesn't happen, this might well become the second Cinema Guild release to encourage me to update my system and get a projector (their Turin Horse being already responsible for my switching over to Blu!)

Just reporting that CinemaGuild's BluRay of Neighbouring Sounds is superb. The transfer is strong, with nice, unobtrusive grain, and it comes with a director's commentary and four shorts. The first couple of horror ones are rather standard, but Electrodomestica is a direct antecedent of the (excellent) feature and an essential inclusion.

It's one of the best debut features of recent years, and this release looks like it trounces Artificial Eye's (which is DVD only and apparently bare bones).

I concur with zedz on Neighboring Sounds. An ace disc, and an even better film. It's a community consisting of personal bubbles, connected in a myriad of ways; by secrets, errant soccer balls, barking dogs, stereo thieves, family feuds, and past digressions. These connections are tied to the stories of the individuals, and Filho acknowledges the stories, with the understanding that not all of them need to be shared. Just the acknowledgement is enough. (cribbed from my blog post).

Also for those of you Netflix subscribers who are still getting discs, be sure to add The Unspeakable Act to your queue/save list. Convince them that they need to stock the film (which is something they should already know but alas).

Excited to see an Amazon.com pre-order already up for the Blu-ray of Jem Cohen's Museum Hours. If there aren't plans to do so already, might I suggest that Cinema Guild try and offer as extras some of Cohen's many and varied shorts, especially the excellent Lost Book Found.

I got mine (from Amazon) a week or so ago. Intriguingly perplexing film (as you'd expect) whose main character, like Ruiz at the time he made it, is staring down an imminent death. Lots of casual and not-co-casual allusions to decades-worth of Ruizian preoccupations (pirates; characters with multiple avatars; literature leaking into real life and real life leaking into dreams). At the end is a bizarre chain of seances in which the living haunt the dead, who haunt a bunch of fictional / historical characters.
