BD 21 Everybody in Our Family

Another Radu Jude film coming from Second Run, coming soon, hopefully on Blu-ray.

EDIT: I just realized that Tuesday After Christmas was Muntean, not Jude. Oops.

Great news.

Jude's Scarred Hearts (2017) recently received a DVD only release in the US by a little know label called Big World Pictures. Its a pretty impressive transfer.

My big wish is that Radu Jude's most recent and best of what I have seen of his work, I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians (2018) is picked by some enterprising UK or US label in the near future.

Thanks for pointing this out. I think this film cements Jude as Romanian's greatest treasure in a sea current with them. This had such a deep and profound effect on me even as Blecher is entirely new to me. I feel that many commentators are being distracted by the aesthetic, which is as good as everyone says, to the detriment of a very complex look at the history of antisemitism in Romania. In a sense this compliments Aferim!'s commentary on the treatment of the Romani. As befits his subject Jude turns to a more urbane style layered in western philosophy as a guard from the truth of a difference that everyone else makes note of. Some scenes as a result are deeply uncomfortable because of their humour such as one where after a slight attempt at defense Emmanuel merely simmers as a fellow invalid comically praises Hitler. It's also creepy how the state of Jewish masculinity mirrors the idea of a sick Europa with the sexual impulse and brain being the only surviving parts. In many respects the film mirror's Has' The Hourglass Sanatorium as a sort of Romanian equivalent. This character need not just be a modern take on Blecher. He is just as must Kafka, Rosenzweig, or a hundred others in their place. Yet somehow this death seems more kind then that which would ail Zweig, Benjamin, or Schulz among many others in the subsequent decade. At least Blecher can laugh at his mortality.

Is this a BD-only release?

How many folks who buy Second Run releases haven't yet upgraded to Blu-rays?

I gather that complaints received by Powerhouse when Indicator went BD-only a year and a half ago were in the low single figures - a fair bit less than they'd anticipated.
