Indeed. I must admit I was not much of a fan of Kaos on it's initial release back in the 1980's but am more than prepared to give it another go.

Of the Jacquot triple I am most excited about Keep It Quiet. Wonderful film and I think the only teaming to date of Isabelle Huppert & Fabrice Luchini two of my favourite French actors. I haven't see the other two Jacquot films but am very eager to. He is one of the most interesting directors working in France during the last 20 years or so.

Hoping for a The Old Dark House Bluray release.

Not sure if they start releasing Buster Keaton at 4k if I'll double dip. Rather hope they release some titles not out on Bluray yet. Get tired of seeing so many re-releases. I like getting a better image, but there are so many other great films still not on Bluray.

Little late to the party here, but just ordered the following:

Thief of Bagdad
Two Men in Manhatten
That Man From Rio
Jamacia Inn


Interested in:

The Damned
Queen Margot
The Beauty and The Devil
Blancanieves
Vivien Leigh Anniversary Collection


Any other suggestions?

You and me both, but I don't think Cohen has it. At least it's not listed under "Films" at cohenfilmcollection.net . Neither is Sirk's Lured (thinking of another old Kino DVD that needs a Blu-ray upgrade).

It was among the films included in a large PDF catalog the label had on their website in 2013, but a cursory search of their site didn't show said PDF catalog.

Cohen don't list all their films on their site anymore (there used to be a PDF catalog). They have them listed at Park Circus though

The Old Dark House a new restoration has been making the rounds recently at film festivals. Watched my DVD again last night and its such a great movie all around, but is extremely blurry and muddled. I believe the DVD came from the original restoration which was made a long time ago. There have been a ton of advancedments since then in restoration and cleanup tools.

Thanks!. Had never even heard of Tristana. Buñuel and Deneuve was a no brainer. Will probably pick up intolerance and Langs film later.


Love to see some of these restored and released by Cohen as well :

Their Fattie Arbuckle films.
Scandal in Paris -Douglas Sirk
Vampyre
Demnetia
Long Pants & The Strong Man- Harry Langdon films directed by Frank Capra
WaxWorks 1924. (Who owns The Man Who Laughs Universal ?)

Two Men in Town Blu-ray PRE-ORDER



NEWS/TRAILER
http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=17429

Quote:
The Cohen Media Group will release on Blu-ray José Giovanni's classic film Two Men in Town (1973), starring Jean Gabin, Alain Delon, Mimsy Farmer, Victor Lanoux, and Cécile Vassort. The release will be available for purchase on November 10.

A hard-boiled crime drama and an impassioned indictment of capital punishment, Two Men in Town is the third and final on-screen collaboration between Jean Gabin (Grand Illusion; Pepe Le Moko), France's pre-eminent film star, and '70s Gallic anti-hero Alain Delon (Flic Story; Purple Noon). After an early release arranged by prison reformer Germain Cazeneuve (Gabin), ex-safe cracker Gino Strabliggi (Delon) is devastated by personal tragedy and banned, by statue, from returning to Paris. At Cazeneuve's urging, Gino makes a new start in the south of France, finds honest work as a printer and new love in the form of Lucie (Mimsy Farmer - More), a beautiful bank officer. But when vengeful cops start to stalk him, and Gino's ex-gang starts eyeing Lucy's bank, Gino's determination to go straight is pushed to the breaking point.

Written and directed by author Jose Giovanni (Le Trou), a real pardoned death row inmate, Two Men in Town fuses the two-fisted social commentary of Warner Bros' 1930s heyday with the naturalistic storytelling of '70s French noir cinema. Two Men in Town features a hauntingly evocative score by Phillipe Sarde (The Tenant). NEW 4K RESTORATION FROM PATHE.

It should be noted that this is the second release of Cohen's with that title. Are you thinking of the following?

Two Men in Town/Deux Hommes dans la Ville is a surprisingly good drama from Jose Giovanni, whose own prison experiences were the basis of Jacques Becker's Le Trou. The same sense of working from first-hand knowledge is omnipresent in this drama about Alain Delon's paroled convict trying to start a new life with the help of prison educator Jean Gabin and almost making a go of it until Michel Bouquet's local flic goes all Inspector Javert on him and does everything in his power to engineer his return to crime. Despite some hairspray style slo-mo montages and some awkward construction in the middle, the film manages to make it's potentially cliched story both involving and convincing, not least because of Giovanni's great sense of place and motion, with his fluid camerawork particularly striking.

Gabin is more engaged by the material than usual at this stage in his career and Delon is surprisingly good, especially in his all too convincing final scene, while a young Gerard Depardieu turns up in a couple of scenes offering three generations of iconic Gallic cinematic losers in one film. The crusading tone of the last third is a tad heavy, but the ending - both ritually stylised and yet realistically performed - makes its point far better than the courtroom speeches.

Kino's DVD of this was a less than outstanding standards conversion, so it'll be nice to see this cleaned up. I'm assuming it's the same restoration that Pathe just released in France.

Really enjoying Cohen's releases.

That Man From Rio was a delight, though I haven't watched the second movie yet.
Thief of Bagdad is always amazing and looks really great and Tristana was excellent as well. Purchased The Damned too. Worth it just for the scene Hitchcock had to see and steal for Psycho, but the whole film is great.

Got Two Men in Manhatten and Hangmen also Die, but haven't gotten around to watching them yet.

Going to order some of their newer titles. Two Men in Town looks really interesting. Anyone here see Queen Margot? Any impressions?

In the House Also looks interesting from the trailer I saw on one of the discs.

It's easily my favorite film that Cohen has ever released. Absolutely gorgeous release all over. Isabelle Adjani is a revelation. It's just an epic in every sense of the word. It's a bit long but man, it is engrossing and one of those you don't want to pause, but have to, to take a bathroom break.

Go for it. I rarely make recommendations but I give this a particularly high one.
