Gracias
Apart from what DefLeppard has suggested, this is a terrific film (US release but region free):

It's no letting me multi quote unfortunately (perhaps I'm doing something wrong).

Thanks a lot for the recommendations, some aren't of the genres I typically watch but I'm really wanting to learn as much about Spain as possible from history books, music, cinema and so on.

Really appreciated folks!

Great film. Unsure if the re-print has booklet or not but first print (which I own) is being listed at silly price on Amz.

Couldn't agree with you more on this.Bunuel, Fernando Rey and Catherine Deneuve! Great film and a nice cover art (ignoring that big C) so will be getting this Cohen version eventually even though the AE box set is top of my wishlist.

You can find a lot of these ones on Amz Spain (since it is Region B) like the below one- legit release by Fox with eng sub. Vacas covert art reminds me of Pink Floyd's Atom heart mother album's cover. Spirit of the Beehive is another classic by Erice but Eng subtitled one is long OOP [Criterion DVD].

A breathtaking set of announcements from BFI.

I never thought I'd live to see The Touch getting a quality release. Day one purchase for me. (and spare me the "it's a bad movie why bother" comments - I'm glad you had the chance to watch it and form an opinion; I haven't). Definitely in for the other Bergman and the Ichikawa as well.
2017 Top 10 (work in progress):
1. Spielberg | 2. Wonder Woman | 3. War for the Planet of the Apes | 4. mother! | 5. The Beguiled | 6. T2 Trainspotting | | 7. Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri | 8. Baby Driver | 9. The Disaster Artist | 10. Alien: Covenant

Preemptive arguing is a good idea, especially if you're heading out without your phone.

I like the new cover art but the one we had before this was nice too and I hope it'd make it as booklet front art.

I'd preordered An Actor's Revenge last week before I realised that Criterion was also putting out a version of their own. But the specs on both equal each other out and the 4k source seems to be coming from the same place, so I'm keeping my BFI copy.

The Magic Flute is now in HMV's 2 for 25:

Never seen it - may add MoC's 'Cure' into the order now

They're both released on 23rd April.
