They're all from The Docks of New York (1928) except image 6, which is from Underworld (1927)

von sternberg is criiiiisp. he has a power of perceptive light. his camera's movement is a sense of space

i was thinking of gallo like this

morvern callar like this

i like it when you can touch the visuals. their lights and colors can be misty. without a permit one feels less burdened by questions about business and people rights. we're in los angeles, the camera is in the car, the shot is continuous, and i made it look like this


i have a personal experience thing about it. we're so sangsoo

William Friedkin's Sorcerer (1977) on blu-ray from Warner Bros.



Sorcerer (1977) - Amazon


The film has been remastered by Warner Bros. under Friedkin's supervision, along with colorist Bryan McMahan who has worked with the director since 1994. "The new restoration makes the film appear as if it was just made. None of the essentials -- the clothes, the hair -- are dated in any way. It looks the way it looked to me when I looked through the lens of the camera," said Friedkin. The restoration began with a 4K film resolution scan of the original 35mm camera negative.

Samsung: 4K Blu-ray Discs Coming Up
via blu-ray.com

Vice-president for consumer electronics at Samsung Australia Philip Newton, who is currently at CES in Las Vegas, has revealed that 4K Blu-ray discs will likely become available by the end of the year. The news was leaked in an article published earlier today by The Australian.

According to Mr. Newton, the new 4K Blu-ray discs will likely have four layers but Samsung is ready to make available Blu-ray players that can play them. According to Mr. Newton, the key issue that is still holding back production is the selection of the codec that will be used for 4K content.

I was wondering if there's a website that helps you with requests with movies you want to be released on blu-ray?

Not really...the easiest thing to do would be to research and contact the current rights holder.

Kino Lorber Signs Multi-Year Distribution Deal With Palisades Tartan
via blu-ray.com

Kino Lorber announced today it has signed a multi-year agreement with Palisades Tartan to serve as the exclusive home entertainment distributor in the US and Canada (as available). The distribution deal includes packaged media (Blu-ray/DVD), digital rights, educational sales and repertory theatrical releasing.

Kino Lorber will reintroduce this much sought after 90 title collection, and reissue many of the films on Blu-ray under the Palisades Tartan label. Kino Lorber also plans new digital releases since many of the titles have not been widely available on key and new digital platforms. In keeping with its theatrical mission, the company will also curate selected films for repertory theatrical re-release.

Palisades Tartan has been bringing high-quality, compelling art house releases to audiences in the U.S. for the past dozen years building on Tartan's distinguished 25 year history in the UK. It also established the "Asian Extreme" cinema brand that has accounted for some of its most notable successes in the U.S. market.

Among the key "Asian Extreme" titles are Park Chan-Wook's Oldboy, which won the Grand Prix at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, first of his award winning "Vengeance Trilogy," which also includes Lady Vengeance and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. Other major Asian titles include Jonnie To's Election, which was nominated for the Palme d'Or in 2005 and its follow up Triad Election, Yoji Yamada's acclaimed samurai epic The Hidden Blade, and Shinya Tsukamoto's cyber punk cult classic Tetsuo The Iron Man, as well as the essential early films by Kim Ki Duk and other now modern classics of Asian cinema.

No less significant are other world cinema masterworks from Palisades Tartan. Among the recently released titles is Iranian dissident director Jafar Panahi's widely praised This Is Not a Film, made while under house arrest in Teheran. From Europe comes two landmark films of the Romanian new wave, The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, by Cristi Puiu that won the Un Certain Regard prize in Cannes in 2005 and Porumboiu's 12:08: East of Bucharest winner in 2006 of the Cannes Camera d'Or, as well as Roy Andersson's quirkily hilarious Swedish film You, The Living, and from leading Austrian auteur Ulrich Seidl Import Export, which was nominated for the Palme d'Or in Cannes in 2007. Mexican director Carlos Reygadas' is represented by Silent Light, which won the Jury Prize in Cannes in 2007 and his transcendental Battle in Heaven from 2005. The collection is rounded out with brilliant English language works including the controversial, radically sexual 9 Songs from Michael Winterbottom as well as Andrea Arnold's Red Road, winner of the Cannes Jury Prize in 2006 and widely considered one of the best British films of the last 25 years.

Richard Lorber, who negotiated the deal on behalf of Kino Lorber with Palisades CEO Vin Roberti, commented: "We are exultant to be able to bring the gems of the Palisades Tartan library back to market on all home entertainment physical and digital platforms. It's why we exist as a company-these films define our mission." Vin Roberti of Palisades added: "I've admired the companies Richard has built over many years and we feel our carefully curated collection has now found the perfect home at Kino Lorber. They get it and know how to connect with the audiences who do too."
