Os lançamentos em Blu-ray da Criterion para novembro

Novembro meio fraco com apenas quatro lançamentos pela Criterion Collection: dois meio obscuros e inéditos em DVD no Brasil e dois clássicos do cinema mundial. São eles:

Núpcias de um Escândalo, de George Cukor (que foi um dos diretores de O Mágico de Oz e E o Vento Levou) com Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn e James Stewart já saiu aqui em DVD pela Warner e Classicline.

Corações Desertos (1985) é um romance de época entre duas mulheres e nunca saiu em DVD por aqui.

O samurai, de Jean-Pierre Melville (O Circulo Vermelho) com Alain Delon saiu em teras tupiniquins em DVD pela Versátil com vários extras.

Jabberwocky, Um Herói por Acaso, primeiro filme solo do Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Macacos) conta com o também Monty Python Michael Palin e usa um poema de Lewis Carroll’s (autor de Alice no País das Maravilhas) como base para uma história envolvendo um dragão e com uma estética muito parecida com a de Em Busca do Cálice Sagrado.

Confira as capas e os extras de cada edição:
