Quantcast
"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."
-- Federico Fellini

In January, the Criterion Collection will ring in the New Year with John Hughes's generation-defining high school movie The Breakfast Club, in an edition packed with special features, including extensive new and archival interviews with the film's iconic cast and fifty minutes of never-before-seen deleted scenes. That's just the beginning of a month that will also see the releases of two revelatory films by G. W. Pabst: long unavailable and newly restored, Westfront 1918 and Kameradschaft are thrillingly realistic, socially engaged landmarks of early sound cinema. In another rediscovery, our Eclipse line returns with Claude Autant-Lara – Four Romantic Escapes from Occupied France, a quartet of sophisticated, slyly subversive romances from an unsung master. And there's more: a defiant individual takes on uncaring bureaucracy in I, Daniel Blake, the Palme d'Or-winning drama from veteran British rabble-rouser Ken Loach, in an edition featuring two documentaries surveying the director's career and working methods; and Young Mr. Lincoln, John Ford's poetic biopic starring Henry Ford, on Blu-ray for the first time in a new 4K restoration.
