I am lending these caps from a certain Mlle Anne Harding from Paname AKA Paris, France. She posted them on our twin forum Dvdclassik.com (section Classiques naphtalinés) this afternoon. I am still waiting for my dvd from french Amazon and have no idea if Les Cinq Gentlemen maudits is available too.

Mlle Harding reports that the image is beautiful but that it seems to have been impossible for the editors to do miracles to the rather primitive soundtrack recorded by Tobias Klang for Duvivier's first talkie.

Paradise! Spotless razor sharp image, with color so vibrant it jumps out of the screen. Flawlssly rendered opticals, and even the Red Filtered and Fog Filtered scenes have a clarity that approaches HD. IN other words it looks like VisaVision. I'm even getting used to the DD four track remix.

Just sublime...

Masahiro Shinoda's Punishment Island (Toho, R2 JP).

The film is visually truly arresting. Unfortunately the captures came out squeezed vertically. If someone can instruct me how to achieve the proper aspect ratio, I would be thankful and will repost.




Beaver on Captives Island

One easy way to get the correct aspect ratio on screencaps is to use VLC (in this case the size should be something like 853x480)

One more from Funny Face (Pal, R4). PQ is so detailed, so beautiful, you can see, and almost caress, Audrey's slighty dry, pale lips and fragile young skin, with a hint of acne scarring from only a few years before.

Thanks for those! I have the Crit but decided to get the R4 local after those caps. The color is totally superior and the infamous Criteion LH crop is violently in evidence.

As you also must be aware these Studio Canal sources all look superior to the Criterions, and that certainly includes A bout de Souffle.

Only title I havent checked yet is Deux ou Trois Choses. Tomorrow.

The Madman Two or Three Things I Know About Her is quite grainy, but otherwise good: progressive, high av. bitrate (8.61Mbps). According to michaeldvd.com.au the disk has an aspect ratio of 2.40:1, but as these caps show it is closer to 2.37:1.

Alice in the Cities - Madman (R4) -

Holy cow - no wonder this release was delayed for months. Maybe they should have shelved it all together if this is the best they could get this great film could look. Those streaks run throughout the film.

Digital Meme - Downfall of Osen (1935) Mizoguchi Kenji (R2 Japan)
NOTE: about 25% of the film is pretty badly damaged, but overall
its a good transfer, though maybe not up to really high standards.

Häidenvietto Karjalan runomailla / A Wedding in the Karelian Songlands

A Finnish 'documentary' from 1921 (A year before Nanook!). It's a documentary in the same way as Nanook is, meaning that there wasn't really a wedding and local people were only acting their parts, and isn't certain how much of the rites were simply made up, as the people were told what to do, and the interiors are shot in a built set. It's a really intresting film. The camerawork is quite clumsy at times, but there are some quite beautiful scenery shots as well.

The DVD is of high quality. The print has a lot of damage, but it's also extremely detailed. As far as I can tell, It's in the original projection speed, and thus is non-progressive. No need to worry about that though, since the combing is minimal and cannot be seen on normal play. The original score is included on the DVD and it's absolutely beautiful. Intertitles have optional english subtitles.

There's a booklet with english translations included and the DVD is housed in a thin digipack. This is an excellent release of a movie that deserves to be more widely known.

Avaible here, though unfortunately it seems to be out of stock at least at the moment.

LOVE this film.

It may not be a masterpiece like Sjöströms film, but it is certainly the work of a master. A bit uneven but with some very good parts.
