Criterion September

It’s that time of year again, where weekend after weekend brings more cities being destroyed in louder and louder fashion on the big screen. But fret not, Criterion has just the sustenance you need to survive. The famed distribution label has released their schedule for September and it includes some new additions and a few reissues.

On the new front is a set of three films by Italian neorealist Roberto Rossellini that all star Ingrid Bergman. Included in the set are “Stromboli,” “Europe ‘51” and “Journey To Italy.” All three films of course will feature extensive bonus features including a short film Rossellini completed with Bergman between “Stromboli” and “Europe ‘51” called “The Chicken.”

Also new to the Criterion Collection is the 1978 French comedy, “La Cage Aux Folles.” It’s perhaps most famous at this point for spawning both a Broadway musical and the Mike Nichols-helmed 1996 remake “The Birdcage.” Don’t let that scare you away though, the original is still just as funny and potent as it was when it became an arthouse hit in 1978.

And for those of you looking to upgrade from your DVDs, Criterion is reissuing the John le Carré-adaptation “The Spy Who Came In From The Cold,” Richard Linklater’s seminal “Slacker,” and another Ingmar Bergman title “Autumn Sonata” on fancy pants Blu-ray.

All titles will be available in September so start saving up that money. And a little tip for you readers strapped for cash, you can sell your plasma for more than regular blood donations and more often.
