2013 TBD

Second Sight planning to release Jean-Jacques Annaud's Quest for Fire (1981) on blu-ray. I love this film -- if memory serves me, the entire thing plays out almost completely without dialogue.

Second Sight to Release Jean-Jacques Beineix's Betty Blue
via blu-ray.com



British distributors Second Sight Films have revealed that they are planning to release on Blu-ray French director Jean-Jacques Beineix's 37°2 le matin a.k.a Betty Blue (1986), starring Jean-Hugues Anglade, Béatrice Dalle, and Gérard Darmon. Currently, it is unknown whether this upcoming release will contain the longer Director's Cut of the film.

Betty (Dalle) and Zorg (Anglade) have a passionate, if somewhat unconventional relationship. When she discovers his half-written novel she burns his house down and forces him to go to Paris with her in search of fame. There they team up with another couple, who run a pizza joint, before moving south, where Betty begins her tragic demise into madness and eventual death.   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hopefully this will improve on the botched transfer that Cinema Libre Studios put out -- which makes the whole move look like it's filtered through the "smooth motion" setting on HDTVs.

Jennifer Lange is catastrophically hot in that movie.

Jessica Lange is even hotter.

I have to admit that trailer was textbook bad (in a good way). Absolutely superb.

Rated PG?  WTF?
