Timing

With the recent dispute between Donald Sutherland and Peter Bart over the filming of that legendary Don’t Look Now sex scene (which Bart has more or less admitted error on by telling The Hollywood Reporter‘s Merle Ginsberg that the scene in question was shot “over four decades ago!”), there’s considerable interest right now in Nicolas Roeg‘s 1973 thriller. Which bodes well for the British Region 2 Bluray that streets on 6.27.11.

Will there be a version for Americans without multi-region Bluray players? Of course not. Or at least not in the foreseeable future.

    “With the recent dispute between Donald Sutherland and Peter Bart over the filming of that legendary Don’t Look Now sex scene … there’s considerable interest right now in Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 thriller.”

    Wow, what an amazing coincidence. Why don’t they rename it DON’T LOOK NOW – THEY’RE FUCKING ON CAMERA! and get it over with.

    I can’t believe 8 years after THE BROWN BUNNY, that people are still titillating over whether Julie Christie got a hot Klute injection onscreen.

    Surprised they haven’t announced a remake.

    Between region locking and the implementation of the image constraint token I guess they just want the format to die. More profit and control with streaming.

    There was a remake, D.Z.: ALONG CAME POLLY.

  • Jim Peacock

    So, is Bart’s book fiction?

    Has Julie Christie had anything to say on this subject?

    Re Rating: it’s interesting the film’s rating has now been reduced – it was an “18” when I was a kid…

    Re: DVD/Blu-ray formats: sorry guys, if I can’t bring myself to feel too sorry for you all, any serious cinephile outside of the U.S. Has had to have a multi-region DVD player to watch all the great quality releases that only available in the States, not mention any Criterion stuff… There must be firms in the U.S. Making a tidy profit out of selling region- free DVD and Blu-ray players in the way Richer Sounds did in England back in the day, otherwise there must be hacks online to convert the players to multi-region format…

    While we’re on the subject – can anyone recommend a good region-free DVD and Blu-ray player?

    I am based in the UK but don’t let that limit us…..

    I really need to know if they were having sex for real as it will help me in jerking off to Donald Sutherland.

    IIRC there were rumblings about a remake a few years ago – Andrea Berloff of WORLD TRADE CENTER had been tapped to write the screenplay. Haven’t seen anything about it since so it’s probably dead, thank Dog.
