Thank you, MoC, for encouraging others to release steelbooks as well.

Good thing these releases include other covers though because, like RIFIFI and THE CONFORMIST, the custom artwork they've put together looks crap (nice image, ruined by a tacky looking typeface).

I'll give you Rififi, but the "tacky looking typeface" on the cover of The Conformist is in fact the same one used for the film's actual main title.

(The grab is from the Paramount DVD - the Arrow Blu-ray has the Italian title Il Conformista, but the font is the same).

I think most (if not all) Arrow Academy covers look very good.

That's a total ripoff of the sticker I designed for MoC, but fairplay to them, it looks good!

They ought to get the bloody BBFC cert logo off the steel and on the sticker like we do though. Missed a trick there!

Arrow has done a Criterion, apparently 6 of them haven't been announced.

Two unannounced that I can make out: the print A4 sheet contains liner notes for Candyman and the DVD under The Wild Geese is Fear Eats the Soul, so that's presumably an Arrow Academy release, hopefully in Blu.

Does it come with a slipcover?

Some people have pointed out the Candyman link, however, Universal released it last October. Not much in the way of extras though, I believe.

Perhaps this is a radical marketing idea, some kind of optional sedative, painkiller or analgesic provided with each new BR, just in case...

UK distributor Arrow Films has picked up Ann Hui’s Venice and Toronto drama A Simple Life.

UK distributor Arrow Films picked up Ann Hui’s Hong Kong Oscar entry A Simple Life at the EFM, as well as doc When the Dragon Swallowed the Sun from House of Film and Snowmen from Mpower Pictures.

The treble accompanies previously announced acquisition The Hunt by director Thomas Vinterberg from TrustNordisk and a newly restored print of Korczak by Andrzej Wajda.

Arrow scored its biggest theatrical success since 1994 last year with Perfect Sense.

Yet bizarrely when it came time to bring Perfect Sense out on home video it was only released on DVD.

Arrow Films is considering Demons 1 & 2 Blu-ray steelbook, but have not decided or confirmed it, yet. Here's how it looks:

I'm sure they will release it anyway...

Arrow says their releases of George Romero's "Dawn Of The Dead" and "Martin" are going out of print.

Why is Martin going OOP? Should I get the DVD or wait for a re-release or possibly blu-ray?

Run for it. Excellent package that couldn't be topped.

They have lost the rights.

Beaver - Miracle in Milan

Transfer looks a little problematic at times... to say the least. It still seems a decent package overall though, especially after a price drop.

Much of it looks gorgeous (close-ups of faces in particular, of which there are a lot), and the source print (the recent restoration) is clean as a whistle - but yet again, the Italians seem to have added completely unnecessary and unremovable digital "enhancement" to their master. It's especially annoying because I know the transfer supervisor at Arrow's end well, and he's firmly in the "less is more" camp when it comes to digital tweaking - but if the tweaking has already been carried out, there's not a lot he can do.

That said, it's a very substantial advance on the old DVD, and Il Tetto is a major bonus - it's very much in the Shoeshine/Bicycle Thieves/Umberto D. vein, but less heart-tugging because it's about a newly married couple trying to get a permanent roof of their own over their heads, so there are fewer cute children, pensioners and dogs to moisten the eyes. But I suspect the film's comparative neglect is primarily for historical reasons (by 1956, neorealism was on the wane) than for artistic ones, as it's unmistakably a De Sica/Zavattini project through and through.

I actually feel that De Sica works best with children and he tends to get overly sentimentalized about adult issues without them.

Does it still come in the classic Arrow "window" slipcase? The listing on Amazon seems to indicate a normal, plastic case.

The Roof is a wonderful film, which makes this a fantastic package. The Australian edition of The Roof was only sparingly subtitled, so I'm hoping this edition is fully subbed, because that would make this the release of the year, thus far.

The Roof is not a minor film by any standards. It's a joy to watch. Moving, funny, and ultimately, a testament to the triumph of the human spirit.

Ordered!
