Is that seriously the best poster design that Rialto could come up with for Marienbad?

I actually like the Marienbad poster a lot. It's very similar to the one they did for Elevator to the Gallows. Did you see it somewhere or are you referring to the picture on the Rialto site? What Rialto has up, the still and the title, isn't the poster.

I was referring to the image they have on the page dedicated to Last Year in Marienbad on the Rialto website (also the same image they use on their front page). What does the actual poster look like?

Okay, that's what I thought you might have meant. It doesn't look like that, thank goodness! It's drawn in the same style as Elevator to the Gallows and Army of Shadows, except with a silver background and white figures (if my memory is accurate). I was actually struck by how nice the poster looked when I saw it at Film Forum.

Well, that's reassuring. It doesn't help that Posteritatimistakenly has the Diva poster up on their site where the Marienbad poster should be. I wish these corporate drones would pay more attention to their work. Now off to google images of Marissa Miller while my boss is away.

Is this the poster you're referring to, souvenir?

Yes, I believe that's it. Predictably, given my anything but photographic memory, it doesn't really match my description.

Wow--I've never seen that--that is beautiful. Criterion, please take note.

That's an incredibly unforgiving photo of Delphine Seyrig. The zits on her chin, the lines in her forehead, the heavy eye makeup. And she wasn't even 30 at the time!

Totally agree. Seems like an odd way to promote a movie that concentrates so much effort in emphasizing the aloof quality of her beauty.

Contempt is gearing up for a two-week run at Film Forum and Rialto have given it a new, interesting poster:

I really like that! Here's hoping Criterion start selling it in their store.

This would make a worthy addition and for me get Criterion get back on track. How about this in a Postwar London East End 'Bombsite' Eclipse box containing Hue and Cry with Alastair Sim and Carol Reed's A Kid for Two Farthings.(Let's not forget that Hamer did one of the segments of Dead of Night as well, albeit the least interesting) The Criterion juices are beginning to flow in me again.Hope they don't dry up.

That'd be a great poster for a movie that even remotely resembled what that design implies, ie not for Contempt

Isn't that him on the far right? Otherwise, he certainly did. The billing on the poster gives a prominent place to Palance while Piccoli looks like a supporting player along with Moll. The poster is intriguing - I'd much rather have the Criterion DVD as a poster - but Domino's observation is valid. At least it's imaginative enough, though.

I quite agree about It Always Rains, which was probably Ealing's best straight-up drama. I'm relatively pleased with my R2 Optimum disc, but the film certainly deserves better recognition on this side of the pond -- and Criterion could give it that. Reed's film, however, was already released by HVe. I know that the old HVe no longer exists, but the disc is still in print. Is there much likelihood that Criterion would bother? At any rate, I'd imagine that, if Criterion did indeed do a British Eclipse set or two, they'd keep the Ealing films together. It'd make much more sense from a marketing perspective, since the Ealing name carries quite a lot of cache.

Googie Withers & John McCallum were interviewed on the Speakeasy earlier this evening. Interview starts at 42:00 minutes.

I saw "Contempt" at Film Forum last night- what a film to see on the big screen! It was a fairly packed house, so hopefully it will get a "Marienbad"- esque extension, since as good as the Criterion disc is, it doesn't do the movie enough justice until it's there in all it's eye popping glory in front of you.
To get to the point, though, there as a lobby display when we got out proclaiming that Film Forum is having a Godard in the 60's retrospective coming sometime in May (which made sense, as before the showing, trailers for "Masculine Feminine" and "Pierrot" ran). Just thought a head's up before the initial announcement might excite some of the New Yorkers here!

Film Forum press release:

Quote:
May 2–29 Four Weeks! 20 Films!

GODARD’S 60s

“From Breathless through Weekend, Godard reinvented cinema.” – J. Hoberman

Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the events of May ’68, a month-long retrospective of the thrilling first decade of Jean-Luc Godard’s moviemaking career, opening with his rule-breaking first feature, Breathless, starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg. Festival also includes all of the director’s feature films of the 1960s, including quintessential collaborations with then-wife Anna Karina (Band of Outsiders, Pierrot Le Fou, Alphaville, A Woman is a Woman, etc.) and Jean-Pierre Léaud (Masculine Feminine, La Chinoise, etc.); his career-shifting tour de force, Weekend; super-rarities Made in U.S.A., Le Petit Soldat, Les Carabiniers, A Married Woman, Sympathy for the Devil (with the Rolling Stones), Un Film Comme Les Autres, and Le Gai Savoir; plus shorts Une histoire d’eau, Charlotte et Véronique, and Charlotte et son Jules, the undress rehearsal for Breathless. “Both an innovator and artist. Godard has imposed his way of seeing on us - we look at cities, at billboards and brand names, at a girl’s hair different because of him.” – Pauline Kael (1968).

The Village Voice mentioned the Godard in the 1960s retrospective a few weeks ago. According to them, the centerpiece is to be a new 35mm print of "Vivre sa vie."

I forget, is "Vivre sa vie" with Janus now, or is that still in the nebulous void of the old Fox Lober/Winstar/Wellspring holdings?

Not sure if it's Janus or not, but it's been confirmed on multiple occasions that it is a Criterion.

Know it shouldn't go here (maybe we should make up a Janus Theatricals thread), but the NY Film Forum is showing Kobayashi's "The Human Condition" trilogy in late July, in conjunction with a Tetsuyo Nakadai retrospective.

I thought Rialto had an exclusive deal with Criterion. Why then, is Diva being released through Lionsgate?
