Criterion coming the UK

We may have recently been spoiled by the likes of Arrow Video, Masters of Cinema and Second Run DVD producing fantastic informative releases of classic cinema, but there was a time when UK cinema aficionados had to look across the Atlantic to the Criterion Collection for their vintage cinema fix. Even with the current wealth in stunning UK releases, the news that Criterion are finally set to officially launch a range in the UK fills us with giddy excitement.

On April 18th the label will launch five titles in the UK; as detailed in this month's Sight & Sound.

"The US home cinema label that set the bar for high-quality, extras-laden DVD and Blu-ray packages is launching in the UK on 18 April, with five titles: silent slapstick ‘Speedy’, classic screwball ‘It Happened One Night’, documentary ‘Grey Gardens’, Roman Polanski’s ‘Macbeth’ and Sydney Pollack’s ‘Tootsie’."

In addition to these five releases, Amazon are listing Only Angels Have Wings. Amazon currently list the titles as unavailable with no price but expect this to change very soon now that news is out.
