I thought many here blamed the dual format fiasco, at least in part. I have no special knowledge, so my statement could be wrong.tenia wrote:Aren't the book reduction the answer to increased production costs for booklets and increased transportation costs ?

It probably just means they're out of the dual format edition, and will be rereleasing it in separate blu and dvd editions.Yaanu wrote:I just looked at Criterion.com, and L'eclisse is labelled as "Buy on Amazon.com". Dunno if that means anything, but it doesn't help that the third-party sellers boosted the price up to $400.

That's my favorite film and I'm heartened that enough people would purchase it such that it would go OOP, but I suppose it's equally likely that their initial run was low or that people just like staring at Alain Delon or Monica Vitti seeking spiritual succor (they sold out of L'Avventura posters in their shop as well).
