Judex + Nuits Rouges (Masters of Cinema Series) in August
Eureka Entertainment have announced the UK DVD release of Judex + Nuits Rouges – Two Films by Georges Franju as part of their Masters of Cinema Series on 25th August 2008 priced at £24.99. Co-founder of the Cinémathèque Française and director of Eyes Without A Face, Georges Franju’s Judex and Nuits Rouges both paid homage to the surreal, silent serial-works of Louis Feuillade. Scripted in collaboration with Feuillade's grandson, Jacques Champreux, Judex is a putative "remake" of Louis Feuillade's own 1916 Judex, while Nuits Rouges [Red Nights] - released in the UK as Shadowman - was the second Franju Champreux meditation upon the films of Feuillade.
The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Georges Franju's two most mindbending films on DVD in the UK for the first time. Features include:
- Gorgeous new transfers in their original aspect ratios
- New and improved English subtitle translations
- Video interviews, for both films, by Franju-collaborator Jacques Champreux
- 40-page booklet containing newly translated interviews with Georges Franju; newly translated writing by Jacques Rivette, and more!
