I’m not sure about the color scheme, but otherwise I really like that Portair cover.

Not entirely crazy about the Come And See cover cause the original poster is so effective, but I really can’t complain since we’re getting such a magnificent release of one of my favorite films.

Missed opportunity to use the actual powerful portrait for the Sciamma
I think it's kind of cool that they got a new piece from the artist who did the paintings in the film, at least

I didn’t realize that, DI, you make a good point and of course it’s still thematically intact

An Unmarried Woman reminds me of the cover for Sunday Bloody Sunday.

yes, this is not an actual portrait which appears on the movie "Portrait de la jeune fille en feu"- since they choose a painting I would have loved one of the actual painting from the movie (the second one). I did not seen every movie theaters poster (the poster in France was a photo from the movie with Adel Haenel on it (the fire - dance scene), but it's apparently a painting from an artist (perhaps some painting done for the movie but not actually used in the end? or a real work by the Criterion collection team) ?

Army of Shadows: basically the same as the first one, just some layout changes, drops the chapter listing inside, and a couple of other things.

I've always wondered why Criterion stopped doing that.

Many of their releases don't have chapter titles anymore.

Probably an artifact of the early dvd (or LD?) era of titling chapters, most studios dropped it when they dropped printing inserts entirely. Criterion probably dropped it because the titles are in the Blu-ray menu, and the dvd market that doesn’t have titles chapters on the disc menus is increasingly small
