Unless you're a die-hard fan of Being John Malkovich or Putney Swope, Criterion's May announcements are pretty disappointing....
Criterion will bring Summer With Monika to Blu-ray on 29 May. This romantic Ingmar Bergman romp will arrive with a 1080p transfer, an LPCM sound mix, a Bergman introduction to the film, a set of interviews, a documentary, and the film's trailer. SRP is $39.95.
Also coming on 29 May is Summer Interlude. This Criterion Blu-ray of another of Bermgan's early films will come with a 1080p transfer and an LPCM sound mix. SRP is $29.95.
On 22 May, we'll get a DVD release of Eclipse Series 33: Up All Night With Robert Downey, Sr. from Criterion.
