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."

May 2014 TBD

Michelangelo Antonioni's The Vanquished (1953) on blu-ray from Raro Video



Challenging linear narrative by weaving multiple story lines and exploring a directorial style way ahead of his time, director Michelangelo Antonioni's unique triptych film features three murders, one taking place in Paris, another in Rome, and another in London. All of the perpetrators are affluent youths, each killing for dubious motives. In the France segment, a group of adolescents kill for money, even though they don't need it; in the London segment, a poet uncovers a woman's body and tries to profit from the discovery; and in the Italian segment, a student becomes caught up in a smuggling ring, with deadly results. With elements that serve as a precursor to Blowup, Antonioni explores how modern society can produce nihilistic tendencies in the least likely characters.   

This now has a release date of June 10, 2014

Alright the lower profile stuff I think is worth a look:

-Second Sight's release of Jean-Jacques Beineix's Betty Blue (1986) (Not the US version, which looks like garbage due to some smooth-motion type filtering)

-Curtis Harrington's Night Tide (1961) starring Dennis Hopper, which sort of has the feel of a Val Lewton movie

-Jean-Pierre Melville's Two Men in Manhattan (1959)

-Jean Rollin's The Iron Rose (1973), it being the most minimalist and poetic film he made

-Frank Perry's The Swimmer (1968), a dark, devastating dream set against the sun-soaked valley

-Schizophrenia (1983) (aka Angst) which puts Requiem's use of doggie cam to shame

-Claude Chabrol's La Ceremonie (1995) for the best example of folie ŕ deux I can think of

-Jacques Deray's The Outside Man (1972) starring Jean-Louis Trintignant and Roy Scheider, for a French Crime style take on Los Angeles

-James Ivory's The Remains of the Day (1993) for the masterclass in subtle acting by Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson

-All of the Pialat's, but especially Police (1985), Under the Sun of Satan (1987), and We Won't Grow Old Together (1972)

-Warner Archive's Forbidden Hollywood series of Pre-Code films

-And some classics, From Here to Eternity (1953) and The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) which will remind you of the time when Hollywood was great
