Os lançamentos em Blu-ray da Criterion para dezembro

Dezembro é um mês dedicado à documentários na Criterion Collection.

De ficção há apenas o cult Eleição, com o Matthew Broderick e Reese Whiterspoon e direção de Alexander Payne, que saiu por aqui apenas em DVD há muitos anos pela Paramount.

General Idi Amin Dada: Um Autorretrato, de Barbet Schroeder, é um doc sobre o sanguinário ditador ugandense e que saiu aqui pela obscura Wonder Multimídia.

Monterey Pop!, do diretor D. A. Pennebaker (conhecidos por vários documentários musicais), é um caso estranho pois já saiu pela Criterion em BD mas com outra capa. De qualquer forma esta nova versão foi novamente remasterizada (eu tenho a anterior e já achava boa) e poucos extras novos: um curta, alguns números excluídos e algumas entrevistas, além de um novo encarte. Tem uma versão com um disco com o show de 1967 e mais alguns extras e outra cheia de extras em três discos (incluindo shows/docs do Otis Redding e do Jimi Hendrix).

Mas a joia do mês, e talvez do ano, é 100 Years of Olympic Films. Isso mesmo! CEM ANOS DOS JOGOS OLÍMPICOS (!!!)  em 32 discos de Blu-ray (ou 43 DVDs) com mais de 100 horas mostrando 41 edições das Olimpíadas, de 1912 a 2012. Além disso, alguns documentários clássicos como Olympia da Leni Riefenstahl também foram remasterizados (em 4K) e estão presentes. Infelizmente a edição de 2016 em terras tupiniquins ficou de fora mas quem sabe neles não lancem separadamente ano que vem? Quem sabe assim teremos algo do Fernando Meirelles (que produziu a abertura) pela Criterion 😉
