Man this sucks. It will also get a criterion release which will of course include better visual and audio quality and more special features but then again Plain Archive will of course have superior packaging. Might have to get both versions since the film is so god damn great

Haha yeah I’ll buy them both too. I even ordered the French blu-ray and will try to add English subtitles via my Oppo. Fingers crossed it works.

I would open my wallet as fast as I could if this gets a similar release that Carol did, with the limited edition deluxe box set

I would really like Plain to start getting back in to the full swing of things, but sadly can't see it happening.
For now, its just a lot of announcements that don't amount to anything.

Ooooh so happy to hear this. It's a special flick!! I watched it in cinema on New Years Eve (in the background, fireworks noise from the outside lol) and it's very very good. It could have been 15 minutes shorter imo, but anyway very good movie. It relies deeply on the greek myth of Eurydice and Orpheus, and all the gaze stuff connected to it.. so you may want to take a look at what wikipedia says about that

Definitely a Beautifully shot film. Every frame in this movie is a perfect painting. Cant believe this didnt even get a cinematography nod at the Oscars...

i got this one Taiwan edition that came with art cards. I need to pop it in and check the quality though, now that i'm dealing with multiple potential copies. Criterion is a must for me, so do I add this upcoming one as a 3rd?!
It definitely depends on if the packaging is top notch or not. Criterion is a no brainer for the special features and remastered audio and video

would you mind posting a picture? I looked at a Taiwanese release on YesAsia and was tempted to order it (but would still get the Plain Archive version as well) - thanks
