Red River Like Someone In Love

Another month, another reason to break open the piggy bank as The Criterion Collection unleashes another slate of films. And this May, they are unveiling their usual mix of classic titles, foreign fare and contemporary faves.

First up, Howard Hawks' western "Red River" starring John Wayne and Montgomery Clift arrives in a couple of different cuts. The 90-odd minute theatrical cut—the director's preferred version—gets the full blown 4K restoration, while the longer, two-hour-plus version gets the 2K treatment, and both are included. As for the extras, it's mostly a slew of interviews providing more context to the 1948 film.

Abbas Kiarostami's odd tale of romance between an elderly professor, "Like Someone In Love," gets the wacky C treatment. It will be a fairly bare bones affair, with a 45-minute documentary providing the meat of the extra material.

Capping off the unusually lean month for Criterion are a trio of Blu-ray upgrades with Wes Anderson's "The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou," Stuart Cooper's "Overlord" and Billy Wilder's "Ace In The Hole" all going high def.
