I get the impression there will be a separate newsletter for Academy from now on, considering it seems odd to not mention them whatsoever in the newsletter itself if that's not the case (hence all the omissions here)

I was thinking initially that Alfredo Garcia was Academy but I guess it isn't.

It isn't, and I can't spot any Academy titles on that list.

I don’t get the use of exclamation points here. “Sold Out!” makes sense, but “20% Old Out!”? I’m not ready to panic yet. But then “95% Sold Out” apparently doesn’t warrant my excitement, whereas “50% Sold Out!” apparently does.

Now that I think of it, “Sold Out!” doesn’t even need an exclamation point. Should just be a frowning emoji. It’s not like I need some incentive to rush to their online store to look for something that’s gone already.

Thinking of potential Miramax titles, Sonatine seems like a lock for either Arrow or Criterion. Many of the other early films are now spoken for by Film Movement or Third Window, and since Sonatine was what I understand to be Kitano's international breakthrough, a Blu SE seems very likely to me from Arrrow or Criterion.

Arrow let their DVD of Leos Carax's Les Amants du Pont-Neuf go OOP but I'd sorely like to see it come back into print, upgraded, if they now have access to Miramax's catalog in the States

Calvin, there is a Korean blu of Les Amants that appears to come from a fantastic restoration; you can import it stateside.

Here's a trailer I cut when I played for my college's cult screening series. Hopefully it gives you a good sense of the image quality.

Third Window have mentioned they've got more from Kitano coming by mid-2017, so it's still possible they're working on his earliest films too. Whoever releases them in the UK, at least they won't have Film Movement's cover art.

Jack M,

Watched the trailer you referenced - and it's available in the U.S. via a Korean transfer? Looks great. But can you provide a source for the said transfer? Thanks.

Hey isakorg2!

It's my understanding that it is from a South Korean label. It comes with a fold-out poster, a booklet with a really insightful interview w/Carax (provided in English!), and several post cards. It's conveniently REGION A and comes with English and Korean subtitles. The disc menu is in Korean as well but it is easily navigable.

Here are a few links with images of the packaging and technical stats. I ordered mine from a third party off of eBay, though you may be able to find it elsewhere. You might have to ship it overseas like I did, but it's worth every penny. Never thought I would the film looking so good.

I would be happy to share more pics from my set as well. It's a great package.

It looks like Koch in Germany is planning a blu-ray of Mario Bava's Kill, Baby, Kill! with a March release date. The German version goes by the film's amazing title in that country, The Dead Eyes of Dr. Dracula. I wonder if this is a good indicator that Arrow is planning a release of the film in the near future?

Could anyone please direct me to a list of Arrow Video UK releases, if it exist. I keep stumbling upon the Arrow Video US thread. I am particularly interested on a listing of their Limited Editions, the old ones with a slipcover and 4 different cover arts, but would be happy to browse a master list of all Arrow Video UK releases (not the Academy).

Many thanks.
