And, from the downloadable pdf now up on the website:

#093 MAN HUNT Fritz Lang 1941
#101 NO QUARTO DA VANDA Pedro Costa 2000
#102 COLOSSAL YOUTH Pedro Costa 2006

And in a separate Blu-Ray numbering sequence:

#1 SUNRISE F. W. Murnau 1927
#2 MAD DETECTIVE Johnnie To / Wai Ka Fai 2007
#3 TOKYO SONATA Kurosawa Kiyoshi 2008
#4 UNE FEMME MARIÉE Jean-Luc Godard 1963
#5 FOR ALL MANKIND Al Reinert 1988
#6 FANTASTIC PLANET René Laloux 1973
#7 SOUL POWER Jeffrey Levy-hinte 200#7
#8 CITY GIRL F. W. Murnau 1930

All great news, of course, but that Godard Blu-Ray smarts having just bought the DVD!

Dammit I just ordered the Koch version from DVD Planet. Why didn't I read this thread first, I ask you? Why?

(Is the Koch really that bad?)

I can't notice a difference when watching. The MOC has a great companion booklet, however.

I'd be very surprised if the Koch versions' subtitles were anything like as conscientious as the MoC's.

That has to be the earliest review ever, two months before release! [-(

Seems like another stellar release. I've not seen it, but from reading Everything Is Cinema (on Godard) it seems like its one of his best films.

FWIW, we've never had a problem with any of Gary's BD grabs. It's a different process. We're very happy with his UNE FEMME MARIÉE BD grabs, it looks like we know it looks.

I don't suppose there's any chance of a SD-DVD for BD disc exchange? :-"

Nick, will the book in the Blu be the same size as in the SD or a bit smaller to fit the case?

Same content, same number of pages (80) -- but smaller physical size. Thicker box than previous MoC BDs.

Thanks. All things considered, I think I might go for the SD and the slightly bigger book option, since it's reported to be such a nice volume.

It's literally a (very slight) x-/y-dimensional issue. The layout and pagination are about 98% identical between both volumes (the BD book and the SD book). The Blu-ray book also fixes some very minor typographical issues that slipped by in the first edition on the SD, and introduces a very slight edit of a sentence or two in the "Graphic Violence" piece.

If you have the means to play Blu-ray, I'd suggest going for that one (not to undercut the SD edition, which still looks great). You'll see Une femme mariée — and Godard's original trailer for the film — in astonishingly beautiful form.

ck.

Craig, for those of us who already have the SD and will buy the Blu can't you do a skuhn and, in lieu of the booklet slip in a pressing of Gremillon's La Petite Lise as an easter Egg? I'll supply the VHS telecine and dyslectic Franglais fansubs.

Me again.... gawd!

The Bluray arrived last night and I basically had to pick myself off the floor after putting it on. I don't think I have ever seen Coutard's high light, low contrast photography rendered as brilliantly as it is on this killer of a disc. The beaver caps dont even begin to give you a feel for it as there is a surprising amnount of motion - typewriter style pans, etc. On that, there is one (only) panning shot which seems to have a very minor problem with stability in the image - it's in chapter 4 just after Meril has done the Kim Novak Vertigo style runaround changing cars and ducking in and out of shops etc, from which she runs from right to left in a wide travelling, with an unusually high amount of darker background detail. I would guess the actual encode probably was at issue - I don't mean to nag as it's all of two seconds, but I was interested to see the higher end projector seemed to handle the motion slightly better than the Plasma, although both are being fed with 24fps. I keep reading that the 24fps logarithms sometimes cause more problems than they solve but I have no idea about this.

Anyway - forget that, and just get out and buy it. I am still amazed that by mid year there will be five Godards out on Blu!

Is the trailer on the Blu-ray disc playable on a region A player?

Hmmm, yes. You'd think! My DVDs been up for a little while with no biters... I bought it on day of release, with no idea that I would end up adopting Blu-Ray quite so soon... and now the power of *WANT* brought on my the 'caps on Beaver of the Blu-Ray is starting to get too great... I haven't caved in, yet...

In which case, you might want to hang on to it. We're unlikely to repress DVD editions once we run out of the current pressing, where a BD edition exists. The DVDs might become more collectible then.

I received my BD the other day and put it in my player today to watch it and discovered that all the subtitles are not showing up on my screen. I enjected the disc, turned off the player, and then reloaded it. Again same problem... only about half the subtitles are showing up. Bits of dialog will go by without any subtitles at all. I have a Oppo BDP-83 and am wondering if the problem is the player. Has anyone else encountered this problem yet?

Well, I figured it out. It is the player. The last firmware update seems to have had a negative effect on the subtitles. I know this because I tried out "Tokyo Sonata" just now and it too is experiencing the same problem. The subtitles worked fine before the last update... so it's the Oppo. I emailed Oppo; hopefully they will fix it soon.
