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.

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.

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

They're both released on 23rd April.

Looks like La Belle et la BÍte might be pushed back to July if the Amazon listing is to be believed. That's fine with me as I have way too much of interest in the next couple of months, and also means I don't have to decide between Ichikawa and Cocteau (likely gonna grab An Actor's Revenge once it's in HMV's 2 for £25 offer).

Richard III - 90's adaptation of Shakespeare's famous political intrigue drama set in an alternate 1930's Britain in the time of civil war. Ian McKellen made his international name with this film, having both written the screenplay and played the lead part with relish - he went on to play Gandalf in LoTR and Dumbledore in Harry Potter. There's nothing by way of subtlety here. The characters are one-dimensional and it plays almost like a farce. But everyone seems to be having a good time and the film certainly moves fast with some spectacle during the battle scenes. BFI's blu-ray gives a wonderful A/V presentation with rich color in the settings and costumes, and some bombastic 5.1 surround sound during the skirmishes with tanks and planes.

Haven't yet dipped into the extras and booklet.

Indeed it was the late Richard Harris. Ian McKellen turned down the role after Harris' death citing Harris' 'disapproval' of him. Michael Gambon played the character consequently.

It's also not set in "our" 1930's Britain but an alternate one where the Houses of York, Lancaster and Tudor are vying to rule as fascist dictatorships.
