Default Ironweed (Hector Babenco) -- March 2013



Olive Films will release Hector Babenco's Ironweed (1987), starring Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep, on Blu-ray in March. Both Streep and Nicholson were nominated for Academy Awards for their performances.


Note: Fans will note that Ironweed has rarely, if ever, been seen in widescreen since its theatrical release. Most DVD editions, including the recent Lionsgate US DVD, are in the 1.33:1 ratio. To my knowledge, the only DVD to present the film in its OAR or 1.85:1 was the TF1 French R2 DVD, which has long been out of print and contains forced French subtitles.

Saw this when it first came out, projected at 1.66:1 and looking great at that ratio. Powerful, if rather downbeat film, with excellent performances. It would make a good double-feature with BARFLY or triple-feature with LEAVING LAS VEGAS!

Excited to see this come out on Blu and get the upgrade it deserves. I was thinking that this would be a could Criterion title someday but a good choice by Olive. Solid performances by Nicholson and Streep, and also Nathan Lane as the ghost who haunts Nicholson's character.

Want to pre-order this but not sure for two reasons:

1) can't find whether it's region free or not

and

2) not sure how much Amazon.com charge for shipping to the UK.

Can anybody clear this up for me please?

Added to this, the DVD has utterly terrible picture quality. It looks like a VHS dupe.

Has anybody received their copy? Amazon says it's out of stock and mine hasn't shipped even though I pre-ordered back in January.

Amazon says mine will be delivered sometime the week of April 9. Can't wait to have this in my hands! It is indeed a downer, but I think it's a very cool, sadly underrated film. The whole bar scene where Streep performs for the crowd never fails to get me. And I think Nicholson is at his peak here. Great performances by the whole cast. Hoping the picture quality is good, but frankly anything would be better than the DVD version I currently have... :-)
