A Hard Day's Night Picnic At Hanging Rock

Well folks, it’s time to start picking up some extra shifts or sign up for some primo medical experiments because everybody’s favorite home video boutique label has released their sizzling slate for the month of June.

First up, on the second Tuesday of the month two older titles will receive Blu-Ray upgrades: the Douglas Sirk iconic melodrama “All The Heaven Allows” and the final chapter of Michelangelo Antonioni’s informal trilogy on contemporary malaise, “L’Eclisse.” The latter film’s upgrade leaves the first film of the so-called trilogy, “L’avventura,” as the sole film without a high definition release.

The following week sees a trio of releases from roughly the same era, with refreshed releases of Peter Davis’s blistering 1974 Vietnam documentary “Hearts and Minds” and Peter Weir’s 1975 breakthrough “Picnic at Hanging Rock." Meanwhile Georges Franju delightful “Judex” makes its Criterion debut bringing with it interviews, a TV special and more as bonus content.

And finally, closing out the month is the iconic Beatles film “A Hard Day’s Night” with a 4K transfer approved by director Richard Lester along with archival interviews and footage, two documentaries on the making of the film, a new piece on Lester’s groundbreaking approach to editing and the director’s Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan-starring Oscar-nominated short "The Running Jumping and Standing Still Film.“ So if you’re a Beatles fan or a fan of Lester, like Steven Soderbergh, you’d best start saving up now.
