Wow, two great films- keep the Hong coming! Virgin Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors in particular is a masterpiece.

I just got my copy of the new Hong Blu-Ray. It turns out that you get to pick whether it is Woman on the Beach with Hill of Freedom as an extra or vice versa. (Reversible cover and Blu-Ray label printed with different orientation for each film). I'm going with the WotB option.

Mouth of the Wolf and Lost and Beautiful being released as a double feature in March, on Blu-ray and DVD. Lost and Beautiful was an early streaming-only title, so hopefully some of the others (Academy of Muses, He Fengming, Mimosas or, dare I dream it, From What Is Before) will also get physical releases.

Academy of Muses needs to happen!!! I don't even care if they just do a DVD.

Oh yeah I've just never chimed in. In the City of Sylvia got a DVD release from Cinema Guild so why not. I've been poking them on Twitter for La Flor and Straub/Huillet every so often so i'll add this. It seems to be working at times.

Francisca will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on April 6. Hopefully the other two Portuguese classics they recently restored will follow soon.

Shame about the lack of features, but thrilled it's finally dropped- hopefully it comes back in stock shortly. Thanks for the head's up!

Amazon’s new price for Francisca is questionable. :-k

I don't think this has been mentioned in the thread, but Bong Joon-Ho's great long short Influenza slipped out on DVD last year. Here.

They claim it's previously unreleased, but it was a Jeonju Digital Project film and was included on their superb box set about ten years ago. It's formally remarkable as a narrative film conveyed exclusively through security camera footage.

As someone who likes most Bong, I watched Influenza earlier this year and absolutely hated it. Think a shrewd, rather than comic, approach to callousness in a narrative strung together like Jackass. I can’t believe it’s being sold with a couple interviews for $20 on DVD. I might be the outlier here, but it’s def not a safe blind buy.

I agree with Zedz on its quality, but also agree that that disc is highway robbery. It’s a good short, not Night and Fog!

Grasshopper Film's Facebook have been plugging Where Dos Your Hidden Smile Lie? a lot, hopefully it will be included as a supplement on Sicilia!.

I’ve been wanting to see the Straub-Huillet since missing a one-screening-only showing years and years ago. Reading up again on it now, I see that it’s based on this novel, which I’ll try to track down and read before catching up with the film. I find I’m steadily, if not comprehensively, picking up more and more of these Grasshopper releases. Thanks for your posts on this one, which I didn’t have on my radar.

This doesn't seem to have been formally announced anywhere, but Sono's Red Post on Escher Street also looks to be getting a DVD-only release on August 24th.

Second Run will probably be releasing both of the Rocha films on Blu-ray, so I'm not going to be too sad about Grasshopper bumping them down a format.
