Via IndieWire, Claire Denis' 35 Shots of Rum [35 rhums] has found a US distributor in Cinema Guild, who just started their own DVD label after New Yorker Films closed up shop. In other Cinema Guild news, they have teamed up with Project X, who previously brought us a bunch of amazing Peter Watkins films. Their first release together will be Christian Petzold's The State I Am In [Die Innere Sicherheit] in July, followed by Watkins' 14-hour doc The Journey [Resan] sometime later this year.
Criterion announced their July titles this afternoon. Roman Polanski's Repulsion, previously only available in a wretched bargain bin disc, will be out on both DVD and Blu-ray on 28 July. Masaki Kobayashi's The Human Condition is set for the 14th, as well as a Blu-ray of For All Mankind. And Godard's Made in U.S.A. is the other release, though Eric pointed out that spine number 482 has yet to be announced. He suspects it may be Godard's 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her [2 ou 3 choses que je sais d'elle] (though Polanski's Cul-de-sac is another possibility). I suspect it may be Revolutionary Road (if Criterion's release of Benjamin Button is any indication). Let's hope he's right.
