Criterion is going to be releasing some amazing IFC Films on DVD.
First up is Arnaud Desplechin’s A Christmas Tale (Nov. 10) and Matteo Garrone’s Gomorrah (Nov. 24), which I wrote about a while ago. Criterion also will distribute films from the IFC library, some of them on Blu-ray Disc, in addition to DVD, such as Steven Soderbergh’s Che, which will come out on both formats in late 2009.
Releases in 2010 will include Jan Troell’s 2008 Golden Globe-nominated Everlasting Moments; Olivier Assayas’ acclaimed 2009 hit Summer Hours, starring Juliette Binoche; Steve McQueen’s Hunger, starring Michael Fassbender; Hirokazu Kore-Eda’s Still Walking; and Abdellatif Kechiche’s films Venice and the César Award-winning The Secret of the Grain. Special editions of library titles will include Alfonso Cuaron’s Y Tu Mama Tambien, one of my favorites, starring Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna and Maribel Verdu; as well as Christopher Nolan’s Following, the Dark Knight director’s 1998 film noir debut.
