Tati’s prophetic 1967 comedy Playtime finally arrives in its restored version on Blu-ray in the UK from the BFI.
StudioCanal Collection in the UK enters with their superb looking edition of Jean-Luc Godard’s classic, Breathless, but it’s just a little weaker on extras than the Criterion release in the US.
Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless changed filmmaking forever and defined the French New Wave. Now it gets a definitive high definition Blu-ray release from the Criterion Collection collectors should enjoy.
Alain Resnais’ enigmatic, genre-defining and defying film, Last Year at Marienbad, arrives on Blu-ray in a pleasing transfer from Optimum Releasing.
The price of Hollywood, the price of being a god, the dissolution of love — it’s Godard’s most traditional narrative, but “traditional” doesn’t mean banal when it comes to Godard, the complex emotional and symbolic layers of Le Mépris and its leading actress Brigitte Bardot.
Jacques Tati’s Playtime is superb, but this release from Criterion does not present the film in its true 70mm form, choosing instead to transfer from a 35mm copy.
