The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover was informally confirmed at one point, but a rights problem intervened and it's no longer in the pipeline.

slightly off topic, but also there was the rumour that Criterion had thoughts on releasing the Pasolini 'Trilogy of Life' films: (Canterbury Tales, Decameron, Arabian Nights) but nothing came about.

back on topic though, 'The Baby of Macon' blu - clarity and sharpness is really quite remarkable and as it was mentioned before, it's the best the film has ever looked on home video.

My copy arrived from english.megastore.se today!

I am pleased to report that Atlantic Film's BD of The Baby of Mācon does in fact contain full 1080p video (24.000fps) and an English: DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 soundtrack (verified by both BDInfo and my A/V receiver's display). Other than the feature, the disc contains only a static 1080p loading screen (in English), followed by another static 1080p screen with subtitle options. The subtitles can be easily disabled via the pop-up menu, which is also in English.

I can also confirm what Dubstar has said above about the lack of timecoding. When playing the feature, my player's display simply showed "PLAY".

One other surprise was the lovely artwork on the obverse of the Swedish cover art (please forgive the crudity of my scanner):

Default Baby of Macon BD region free or region B?

Hi,

I have read that the Swedish Baby of Macon BD says it is region B but that it is in fact region free. Can anyone verify which is true?

Thanks.

It is region-free. I have tested the disc myself.

Just a heads up for anyone interested... I have an extra copy of this blu. I have it listed in my trade thread, but thought I would let those interested here know as well, as it could save some shipping costs for you. It is region free btw... for whoever wanted some further clarification.

I want it... of course, I live in Mexico. Rather than cutting shipping costs, I thought I could try cutting shipping time, so yeah. What do you want for it?

I'm probably waaaay too late on this (just saw your post), but I'd gladly snag this if it's still available.

I just watched this film on Blu-ray, and... wow. I wasn't expecting it to be so pretty to look at, even when what is happening on screen is so horrible. Ralph Fiennes sure looked young, and Julia Ormond - she really went for it in this. I can see where religious types wouldn't like this film, but it makes some good points, particularly about celebrity. It certainly deserves to get a release. The play within a play within a play format was confusing at first, but after a while, I got used to it. I give it 4 out of 4 goring bulls.

This is literally 7 years too late. Just saw this film for the first time and I feel like a huge puzzle of my life has been dropped into my lap after a lifetime.

I need this. Should I get the bluray, get the Greenaway collection or is there a better release on the horizons?
