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

valerieFantasies and dreams intersect with reality in Criterion’s slate of titles for June. Terry Gilliam’s beloved, Oscar-winning The Fisher King, a modern-day fairy tale set in New York and starring Jeff Bridges and, in one of his most poignant and hilarious roles, Robin Williams comes to Criterion in an extras-laden special edition. Criterion also welcomes a very different kind of fairy tale, Czech director Jaromil Jireš’s Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, about a teenage girl thrust into an eerie, vampire-inhabited wonderland. Jonathan Demme directs André Gregory and Wallace Shawn’s acclaimed, dreamlike version of a Henrik Ibsen classic with A Master Builder, which is also available in the new box set André Gregory & Wallace Shawn: 3 Films, a celebration of the theater-and-film duo’s brilliant cinematic experiments that includes My Dinner with André (available this month for the first time in a Blu-ray edition) and Vanya on 42nd Street as well. Also this month, Criterion is pleased to present Five Easy Pieces, Bob Rafelson’s cornerstone of American 1970s cinema, for the first time in standalone DVD and Blu-ray editions
