The Criterion Collection and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are delighted to confirm the titles to be released on Blu-ray in July and August 2018. Please note that the July titles are replacing those previously announced.
On the 9 July comes KING OF JAZZ. The most extravagant, eclectic and technically ambitious Hollywood productions of its day, filmed in luminous early Technicolour, has been rediscovered and newly restored.
Following on the 30 July is Orson Welles' delightfully shifty documentary, F IS FOR FAKE. The legendary filmmaker gleefully re-engages with the central preoccupation of his career: the tenuous line between illusion and truth, art and lies.
On the 6 August is SEX, LIES and VIDEOTAPE, Steven Soderbergh's remarkably assured, disarmingly frank debut, a game-changer for American independent film.
Following on the 27 August is SMITHEREENS, Susan Seidelman's electrifying debut, a vivid dispatch from eighties New York and a benchmark for independent film. Shot on 16 mm film that captures the grit and glam of the setting, with an alternately moody and frenetic soundtrack by the Feelies and others.
