MISSING
(Costa-Gavras, 1982)
Release date: 20 August 2018
Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)

This tense real-life political drama about the 1973 kidnap and murder in Chile of young American journalist Charles Horman, directed by provocateur Costa-Gavras (Z, State of Siege, Betrayal), follows the efforts of the journalist's wife (Sissy Spacek - Carrie, The Coal Miner's Daughter) and father (Jack Lemmon - Some Like It Hot, The China Syndrome) to uncover the crime and bring those responsible to justice. Causing controversy upon its release (prompting the US government to condemn the film), this powerful indictment of US foreign policy went on to win an Academy AwardImage for Best Adapted Screenplay, as well as nominations for Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Picture.

Day 1 for Missing. I'll be in London - are Indicator titles sold at HMV and other retailers?

If in London the best place to go is Fopp in Covent Garden. You'll also be able to pick up loads of very cheap Arrow and Criterions there too. Fopp Arrow discs are way cheaper than the Arrow sale.

This should hopefully be from the recent 4k restoration which I was hoping Criterion would upgrade, but this will do nicely instead.

Great to see another Keith Gordon appreciation on here. Enjoyed his apperance on the Blue Collar disc.

Seems UK boutiques go through phases of releasing titles featuring a certain actor, and Jack Lemmon is the current flavour of the month* (The Apartment, The China Syndrome). Whether it's a happy accident or entirely on purpose, great to see some Costa-Gavras finally make it to these shores!

*If my calculations are indeed correct, we could also see both Cowboy and Bell, Book and Candle from Indicator. Perhaps even some more Wilder - Some Like it Hot, Irma La Douce, The Fortune Cookie and The Front Page are each deserving of fresh UK discs. And of course Altman's The Player and Short Cuts are curiously vacant too (I do hope Indicator get their hands on at least one Altman title).

I'm unsure then : will it use the newer restoration (which I believe is a 4K one) or an older one ? It looks like an older one but it might just be a wording thing.

Apparently the 4K restoration is French funded and this maybe just Universal’s HD remaster (Indicator’s wording is very consistent and the most transparent of all the labels). Hopefully MichaelB can confirm one way or the other.

Actually I was thinking it may be good that this is not the 4k restoration, because I see all the other restorations of Gavras films are tealified to the bone!
And I would expect this would be too.

Anyway, I watched this film 2 days ago for the first time and i found it too a trully great film!
