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

AugustCriterion Collection_3Orson Welles will preside over Criterion’s incredible August lineup. First, “Chimes at Midnight,” Welles’ monumental Shakespeare adaptation — for decades, one of the world’s most sought-after lost films — in a gorgeous new restoration straight from Janus Films’ successful theatrical run. Meanwhile, Welles’ “The Immortal Story,” starring Jeanne Moreau, is a gorgeous reverie of a film that, like “Chimes,” has never before been available on DVD or Blu-ray in the U.S. Speaking of dreamlike films, presented is Robert Altman’s brilliant deconstructed Western “McCabe & Mrs. Miller,” among the great works of the American 1970s, starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie. All this plus Tony Richardson’s benchmark of 1960s British realism ‘A Taste of Honey,” still a revelation; “Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words,” a revealing and beautifully constructed new documentary about the life and career of the legendary actor; and new DVD and Blu-ray editions of Hiroshi Teshigahara’s radical and erotic 1960s art-house sensation “Woman in the Dunes.”
