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

This May, John Schlesinger's Midnight Cowboy — the era-defining classic of New American Cinema whose sexual frankness helped earn it both an X rating and an Oscar for best picture — will join the Criterion Collection in a new 4K digital restoration. But first, a major rediscovery: Moonrise, the long-unavailable final triumph by neglected Hollywood master Frank Borzage, will appear in a new, restored 4K digital transfer. Then, fresh from its celebrated theatrical run, Aki Kaurismäki's award-winning The Other Side of Hope, the dryly comic tale of a Syrian refugee and the restaurateur who helps him find a foothold in Finland, arrives on home video. Cristian Mungiu, leading light of the New Romanian Cinema, examines the fine line between faith and fanaticism in Beyond the Hills, and shows how a father's concern for his daughter draws him into a network of corruption in Graduation, both new to home video. And that's not all: Robert Bresson's profoundly compassionate masterpiece Au hasard Balthazar and Paul Schrader's wildly unconventional biopic Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters will make their first appearances on Blu-ray, in new restorations.
