MisterLime, if you are visiting this thread, I really wish Kino would bring back the awesome slipboxes, at least for the silent films and older classics. I always liked the Kino slipboxes. They were well made and looked great on the shelf.

Did Duel at Diablo really come with a slip case? I've never seen a copy sold with one on eBay.

I don't think any of the Kino Lorber Studio Classics have ever had slip cases. Some of the Kino Classics (confused, yet?) titles have had slip cases.

In which category does Duel at Diablo belong? Is it a Kino Classic or Kino Lorber Studio Classics?

It's a Kino Lorber Studio Classic title.

Anyway, belcherman is correct. None of the KLSC titles have had slipcases or sleeves. Some (but not all) of the Kino International/Kino Classic titles have, as have some (but not all) of the Lorber Films/Kino Lorber titles.

To attempt to straighten out what's what, these are the following imprints that Kino Lorber uses:

"Kino Lorber" (formerly "Lorber Films") tend to be more recent films, although the Scorpion/Walt Olsen-recommend titles appear under this imprint. There generally isn't any kind of imprint banner or logo on these titles.

"Kino Classics" (formerly "Kino International") tend to be older films, both American and foreign, with some scattering of more recent films. They generally have a banner/logo on the cover (see drb124's image above for examples).

"Kino Lorber Studio Classics" was an imprint started when Kino licensed a boatload of older American films from MGM's catalog (since expanded to include 20th Century Fox films).

"Redemption Films" is an imprint specializing in European horror films.

"Jezebel Films" is an imprint specializing in older (1960s/1970s) racy films.

"Horizon Movies" is an imprint for selected independent films.

I never noticed that. Yes, that entry is wrong in that respect. And technically, it says that it has a "slip cover" rather than a slipcase. Most people probably don't distinguish between the two, but to me, a slipcase is a box open at one side that the the disc cases slide into (like most box sets) and a slipcover is what I call a "sleeve": the cardboard sleeve open at the top and bottom that a lot of new releases come in.

Kino has used both kinds with their Kino Classics and Kino Lorber imprints.

I wouldn't put it so harshly. All entries in the database are user submitted. You could, for example, go correct the entry yourself if you know it to be in error and submit it for site approval. All you need is to note why the change is required.

I have done this for you. Thanks for pointing out the error.

Very interesting stuff. This is just your take on it? I've always lumped them together.

Sorry, my bad. I should have written the ENTRY on Blu-ray.com is full of sh!te. I've edited stuff once or twice myself.

KINO LORBER LAUNCHES SILK ROAD CINEMA

http://www.screendaily.com/festivals...ontentID=44435

Quote:
Kino Lorber is launching a theatrical distribution label, Silk Road Cinema, dedicated to award-winning arthouse films from India, Pakistan and the rest of South Asia.

The US distributor is partnering with New York and Mumbai-based independent director-producer Shrihari Sathe to curate the collection and collaborate on distribution strategy.

Silk Road Cinema will release around six titles a year throughout North America, in theatres and across all other platforms including DVD and VOD, starting with five titles acquired by Sathe and Alan McAlex’s 3 Monkeys.

The five titles include Afia Nathaniel’s Dukhtar and Geetu Mohandas’ Liar’s Dice, which were Pakistan and India’s submissions respectively to the 87th Academy Awards; 1000 Rupee Note [pictured], directed and produced by Sathe; Avinash Arun’s Killa, which won a Crystal Bear at Berlin in 2014; and award-winning drama Harud, directed by Aamir Bashir.

Sathe, who met Richard Lorber when he was a juror for New York’s South Asian International Film Festival, will be actively seeking new South Asian titles at Cannes with the Kino Lorber team.

Kino Lorber’s Wendy Lidell, who will oversee Silk Road’s theatrical releases, will also be in Cannes.

“As a festival juror for South Asian films, my eyes were opened to the sophistication and originality of many talented emerging filmmakers who have been overshadowed by cliché driven dominance of Bollywood,” said Lorber.

“These are international arthouse films in the best sense and deserve wider exposure at prestige festivals, arthouse theatres and in all media for smart, adventurous film lovers.”

Sathe said: “These locally-rooted arthouse films have global emotions and via Kino Lorber’s established distribution network we plan to bring these films to audiences hungry for content from both emerging and established filmmakers.

Rabin: The Last Day Blu-ray PRE-ORDER



NEWS/TRAILER
https://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=19097

Quote:
Kino Lorber has officially announced and detailed its upcoming Blu-ray release of director Amos Gitai's Rabin: The Last Day. The release will be available for purchase on June 28.

Synopsis: On the evening of Saturday, November 4th, 1995, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated with three bullets at the end of a political rally in the center of Tel-Aviv. His killer, apprehended at the scene, was a 25-year-old student (and observant Jew). The following investigation reveals a frightening world that made this killing possible: a subculture of hate fueled by hysterical rhetoric, paranoia and political intrigue.

In Rabin: The Last Day, acclaimed filmmaker Amos Gitai (Kadosh) masterfully combines staged re-enactments with actual news footage of the shooting (and its aftermath) to create a thought-provoking political thriller with ongoing relevance today.

The film was an Official Selection of the Toronto International Film Festival, won the Golden Mouse and Human Rights Nights Awards at the Venice Film Festival, and also won the Special Jury Award at the Seville European Film Festival.

OPENS TODAY AT THE METROGRAPH IN NEW YORK CITY



Quote:
Synopsis: The late Andrzej Zulawski's final film, a literary adaptation suffused with his trademark freneticism, transforms Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz's novel of the same name into an ominous and manic exploration of desire.

Witold who has just failed the bar, and his companion Fuchs, who has recently quit his fashion job, are staying at a guesthouse run by the intermittently paralytic Madame Woytis. Upon discovering a sparrow hanged in the woods near the house, Witold's reality mutates into a whirlwind of tension, histrionics, foreboding omens, and surrealistic logic as he becomes obsessed with Madame Woytis's daughter Lena, newly married to Lucien.

Saw Destiny on Kino blu.



Fritz Lang’s Destiny is an expressionistic romantic-fantasy that centers on a young 19th-century woman as she challenges “Death” in the hope of bringing back her pre-maturely taken love. What follows are three moral parables - set in Persia, exotic Venice, and Imperial China, each dealing with ill-fated love.
The multi-story format affords Lang limitless opportunities to exercise his cinematic chops. The sets are as usual breathtaking from gothic cathedrals to eerie sky-scraping walls to oriental castles to never-ending staircases.
There’s some stunning imagery on view like a spectral horde disappearing into a wall at midnight and of a terrifying hour-glass vision, forecasting impending doom. Candles are used to great effect both aesthetically (to complement the surreal setting) and thematically (as an allegory for mortal life-spans).
Bernhard Goetzke’s mysterious, darkly-clothed, succinctly-spoken embodiment of Death might seem stereotypical but is far from it. For Death is not depicted as an arrogant, moustache-twirling entity which revels in its limitless power or earthly dominance but contrarily has grown tired of winning. Death has become weary of its inevitability, its invincibility and is compassionate towards his mortal subjects.
I particularly enjoyed the newly composed score by Cornelius Schwehr and thought it blended seamlessly with the film’s grim premise.

Destiny is perhaps most famous for igniting Luis Buñuel’s surrealistic flames and leaving an indelible impression on an aspiring Hitchcock but to be honest the influences are unquantifiable.
From its unmissable Bergman (and consequent Woody Allen) impact (The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries to some extent) to P&P’s A Matter of Life and Death. The multi-scenario life-saving premise was also reminiscent of Tom Tykwer’s Run, Lola, Run.

In the end Destiny proves to be an ambitious little early-Lang which is frequently thrilling but doesn’t come close to some of his subsequent masterpieces, then again few things do.

Kino Lorber will release on Blu-ray Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers' film Fort Tilden (2014), starring Bridey Elliott, Clare McNulty, Neil Casey, Alysia Reiner, Reggie Watts, Griffin Newman, Jeffrey Scaperrotta, and Peter Vack. The release will be available for purchase on November 15.

Synopsis: Fort Tilden: New York City s secluded seaside nirvana where, like flies to honey, Brooklyn s hip millennial set flocks on sweltering weekend afternoons for unbridled summertime indulgence. Amidst the vexing stagnation of quarter-life crises, Allie (Clare McNulty) struggles to prepare for the Peace Corps, while Harper (Bridey Elliott) awaits checks from her father to fund her artistic dreams. But the two friends quickly shun responsibilities for the day when a pair of good-looking guys invites them along for a carefree Fort Tilden afternoon. As the two young women board their xed-gear bicycles and embark on a lengthy journey to the beach, they quickly realize that, akin to their confusing, transitioning lives, they neither know where they re going nor how they plan to get there.
