  The Criminal on Blu-ray, DVD and digital [read more]
  Stan the man
  STUDIOCANAL is delighted to announce that a newly restored version of director Joseph Losey's (The Go-Between, Accident) gritty crime drama about the British penal system, THE CRIMINAL, will be released on September 16 on DVD, Digital Download and, for the very first time, on Blu-Ray looking better than ever as part of the Vintage Classics collection.

Featuring a great British cast including Stanley Baker (Zulu, The Guns of Navarone), Sam Wanamaker (The Spy Who Came In from the Cold, Death on the Nile), Grégoire Aslan (Cleopatra, The Return of The Pink Panther), Margit Saad (Playback, The Saint) and Jill Bennett (For your Eyes Only, Moulin Rouge), THE CRIMINAL was deemed shocking upon its original release for its unashamedly graphic violence but was highly acclaimed for the beautiful stark black and white cinematography by Oscar winner Robert Krasker and cool score by jazz legend John Dankworth. THE CRIMINAL is an intelligent and naturalistic precursor to the British gangster film genre that continues to enjoy success to this day.

For the 2019 restoration of THE CRIMINAL, STUDIOCANAL returned to the original camera negative wherever possible and, only when confronted by severe damage that could not be repaired, alternative sources were used. These elements were scanned at 4K resolution in 16bit. The project involved over 200 hours of manual frame by frame fixes and resulted in the creation of a new DCP, and a new HD version, which were produced with the same high technological standards as today's biggest international film releases.
