Despite extras and restoration, this release should be avoided because it incorrectly presents the film in widescreen just like their DVD edition. The French Blu-ray is the one to pick up

I thought it was a typical cute and pointless internet thing, but would have been better with the piano music from the 360 shot in Week End instead of the Le mepris score

I never knew Godard was actually on the Costa Concordia! (The shot of him walking off right at the end of the trailer.) I seem to remember reading somewhere that a lot of the original footage in Film Socialisme was gathered without JLG's presence during the shoot, but based on loose instructions he provided to the crew. That's interesting that he was on board the ship after all.

In other JLG news, Mubi is advertising that Le livre d'image will make its debut on their UK service on December 3 (and will, in the absence of proper distribution anywhere else outside festivals and gallery installations, doubtless soon-after be everywhere online). This follows the day after a single night of screenings in various UK cinemas.

Any one know a source for English subtitles for "Grandeur et décadence d'un petit commerce de cinéma"?

They're definitely 'out there,' so to speak - Mubi had it had it as a 'special discovery' within the last year or so, and if memory serves there were various English-subbed copies circulating on backchannels before that, too.
