"A 4K it was..." Orson Welles' Iconic Thriller 'The Lady from Shanghai' Comes to 4K UHD July 23rd

“My 4K UHD had torn himself from the player, and the scent, or maybe the stain it was, and him bleeding his bitrate away drove the rest of them mad. Then the collectors took to eating each other.”   

Orson Welles' 1948 thriller THe Lady from Shanghai will devour its first 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release from Sony, come July 23rd. From the terrific performances, the crisp dialog, and the incredible hall of mirrors finale, the film is one of Welles' all-time greats often overshadowed by his many other cinematic masterpieces. Co-starring Rita Hayworth, this iconic thriller will finally see it's day on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray as a single-disc release with Dolby Vision HDR and a swath of archival extras. 

The Lady from Shanghai - 4K Ultra HD

 

SYNOPSIS
Baffling murders, fascinating plot twists, and remarkable camerawork all contribute to this spellbinding, time-honored film noir written, directed by, and starring Orson Welles. Hired to work on a yacht belonging to the disabled husband of femme fatale Elsa Bannister (Rita Hayworth), Michael O’Hara (Welles) is an innocent man drawn into a dangerous web of intrigue and murder.

The subject of great controversy and scandal upon its initial release, THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI shocked 1948 audiences by presenting Hayworth with her flaming red hair cut short and dyed champagne blonde. THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI is now considered vintage Welles, with his famous hall-of-mirrors climax hailed as one of the greatest scenes in cinematic history.

Criterion Collection Crowns Their August Batch of 4K UHD & Blu-ray Titles

The Criterion Collection has announced their August 2024 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray titles. This wave includes Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor in 4K, Brief Encounters / The Long Farewell: Two Films by Kira Muratova as well as Martha Coolidge's Not a Pretty Picture on Blu-ray, and finally Albert Brooks' Real Life and Mother - sold separately on both formats.

On August 13, The Criterion Collection will offer Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (the Blu-ray is already available).

The Last Emperor - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

The Last Emperor - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor won nine Academy Awards, unexpectedly sweeping every category in which it was nominated—quite a feat for a challenging, multilayered epic directed by an Italian and starring an international cast. Yet the scope of the film was, and remains, undeniably powerful—the life of Emperor Puyi, who took the throne in 1908, at age three, before witnessing decades of cultural and political upheaval within and without the walls of the Forbidden City. Recreating Qing-dynasty China with astonishing detail and unparalleled craftsmanship by cinematographer Vittorio Storaro and production designer Ferdinando Scarfiotti, The Last Emperor is also an intimate character study of one man reconciling personal responsibility and political legacy.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED 4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • 4K digital restoration, presented in the aspect ratio of 2.35:1, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack

On the same date, Brief Encounters / The Long Farewell: Two Films by Kira Muratova will arrive on Blu-ray.

Brief Encounters / The Long Farewell: Two Films by Kira Muratova - The Criterion Collection 

The Brief Encounters / The Long Farewell: Two Films by Kira Muratova - The Criterion Collection 

Nobody made films like Kira Muratova. Uncompromising and uncategorizable, the Ukrainian iconoclast withstood decades of censorship to realize her singular vision in hypnotically beautiful, expressionistically heightened films that remain unique in their ability to evoke complex interior worlds. Her first two solo features, Brief Encounters and The Long Farewell, are fascinatingly fragmented portraits of women navigating work, romance, and family life with a mix of deep yearning and playful pragmatism. Long suppressed by Soviet authorities, these films became legendary—along with their maker—and they now make for a revelatory introduction to this most fearlessly original of artists.

SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New 4K digital restorations, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks
  • Interviews with scholars Elena Gorfinkel and Isabel Jacobs 
  • Archival interview with director Kira Muratova 
  • PLUS: An essay by film critic Jessica Kiang         

Martha Coolidge's Not a Pretty Picture arrives on August 20.

Not a Pretty Picture - The Criterion Collection 

Not a Pretty Picture - The Criterion Collection 

Trailblazing filmmaker Martha Coolidge made her feature debut with this unflinchingly personal hybrid of documentary and fiction. Centered on an intense reenactment of Coolidge’s experience of rape in her adolescence, the film casts Michele Manenti (also a survivor) as the director’s younger self, and observes the actor and her castmates as they engage in a profound dialogue about what it means to recreate these traumatic memories, and about their attitudes concerning consent and self-blame. A high-stakes experiment in metacinema that broke new ground with its uncompromising examination of date rape, Not a Pretty Picture brings a stunning immediacy to questions about the on-screen representation of sexual violence and the limits of artistic catharsis.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New 4K digital restoration, supervised and approved by director Martha Coolidge, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • Interview with Coolidge conducted by filmmaker Allison Anders
  • Old-Fashioned Woman (1974), a documentary by Coolidge about her grandmother
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • PLUS: An essay by film critic Molly Haskell

The 1979 comedy Real Life from Albert Brooks is headed for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray on August 27.

Real Life - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

Real Life - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

Decades before reality television reigned supreme, there was Albert Brooks’s debut feature, Real Life, a brilliantly deadpan, stylistically innovative satire about the perils and pitfalls of trying to capture the truth on film. The writer-director plays “Albert Brooks,” a narcissistic Hollywood filmmaker who plans to spend the year in Phoenix embedded with Warren and Jeanette Yeager (Charles Grodin and Frances Lee McCain) and their two children, deploying an arsenal of cutting-edge equipment (including the over-the-head Ettinaur 226XL camera) to capture an American family’s ordinary day-to-day. Chronicling the project’s disastrous fallout, as the meddlesome Albert can’t help getting too close to his subjects, this pioneering mockumentary is more relevant than ever amid today’s media landscape.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED 4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New 4K digital restoration, supervised and approved by director Albert Brooks, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • One 4K UHD disc of the film presented in HDR and one Blu-ray with the film and special features
  • New interview with Brooks
  • New interview with actor Frances Lee McCain
  • 3D trailer directed by Brooks
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • PLUS: An essay by critic A. S. Hamrah

    New cover based on an original theatrical poster

And rounding out the month also on August 27 is another Albert Brooks comedy, Mother - starring Brooks and Debbie Reynolds on both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray.

Mother - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

Mother - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

Reeling after his second divorce and struggling with writer’s block, sci-fi novelist John Henderson (Albert Brooks) resolves to figure out where his life went wrong, and hits on an unorthodox solution: moving back in with his relentlessly disapproving, cheerfully passive-aggressive mother (Debbie Reynolds), whose favorite son has always been John’s younger brother, Jeff (Rob Morrow). It’s an experiment that, however harebrained, delivers surprising results. Brooks’s film perfectly blends the writer-director-star’s biting wit with insight and inviting warmth, while giving him a formidable foil in the delightful Reynolds, triumphant in a comeback role that’s equal parts caustic and charming.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED 4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New 4K digital restoration, supervised and approved by director Albert Brooks, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack
  • One 4K UHD disc of the film presented in HDR and one Blu-ray with the film and special features

Guy Ritchie's 'The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare' Explodes onto 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and 4K SteelBook June 25th

Lionsgate and director Guy Ritchie's action-packed comedy 'The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare' starring Henry Cavill, Eiza González, Alan Ritchson, Alex Pettyfer, Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Til Schweiger, with Henry Golding, and Cary Elwes will be hitting Blu-ray, 4K UHD Blu-ray, and a limited edition 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook (only at Amazon) on June 25. Electronic sell-through will be available on June 18.

The film is based on historical events as well as the book The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: How Churchill’s Secret Warriors Set Europe Ablaze and Gave Birth to Modern Black Ops by Damien Lewis, and the story itself also inspired Ian Fleming's post-war James Bond novels.

Directed and co-written by Guy Ritchie, this action-comedy tells the incredible true story of the first-ever special forces organization formed during WWII by UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill and a small group of military officials including author Ian Fleming. The top secret combat unit, composed of a motley crew of rogues and mavericks led by Gus March-Phillipps (Henry Cavill), goes on a daring mission against the Nazis using entirely unconventional and utterly “ungentlemanly” fighting techniques. Ultimately, the task force’s audacious approach changed the course of the war and laid the foundation for the British SAS and modern black ops warfare.

'The Last Emperor' Returns to 4K UHD Special Edition from Germany's Turbine May 14th.

Bernardo Bertolucci's sumptuous biopic about the controversial Chinese leader returns to 4K UHD from Germany's Turbine. If you missed out on the beautiful Limited Edition Mediabooks, you can now pre-order a new Special Edition with standard packaging featuring the same excellent 4-Discs. 

The shame of limited editions is they often sell out - especially Mediabooks and SteelBooks. Thankfully Germany's Turbine Medien has come to the rescue after their own 4k UHD Mediabook releases sold through. Now fans can pick up Bertolucci's incredible biopic in 4K with standard packaging. I for one love Mediabooks - I think they look pretty damn cool - but I also concede they don't fit on most shelves very easily. I actually have a special section just for oversized packs and Mediabooks to maintain order in my collection. That's where Turbine offering up a new standard soft-pac edition is a welcome move. This set will offer up the Theatrical Cut in 4K UHD and 1080p Blu-ray, the Extended Edition on its own Blu-ray disc, with another disc dedicated to bonus features. To complete the package, the set will come with reversible insert art.

GEORGE ROMERO'S DIARY OF THE DEAD - From legendary frightmaster George A.

May Is A Beautiful 4K Bouquet - HDD's May 2024 4K UHD Shopping Guide

May 2024 is going to be a tough month for 4K collectors. Not because there's nothing coming out, quite the opposite actually. Now that Hollywood has gotten more flicks in theaters after the respective Writers/Actors strikes, that means we have a lot of new titles and a ton of back catalog and deep cult classics coming to 2160p! 

April 2024 was something of an interesting release month in that it started out pretty light, had some good big favorites to get excited for, but then saved the biggest dump of new releases and back catalog 4K titles for the very end of the month. On one hand it helped to spread out the finances early on, but that meant saving everything for the very last day of the month. May 2024 is hitting the gas hard early and isn't really letting up one week to the next - so let's dive in and see what we need to save up for:

May 2024 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Shopping Guide 


May 7th, 4K UHD Releases 

It can't rain all the time! The first week of the month kicks things off pretty hard and heavy. We see one notable KLSC 4K reschedule hit the frame, another Coppola re-edit, a scream factory double feature event, and then one of the biggest and most influential comic book films of the 1990s all join the 4K format along with three very exciting concert discs.

     

   

 

 

Coming May 8th to 4K UHD 

 

Coming May 10th to 4K UHD

   


May 14th, 4K UHD Releases 

Not to slow things down, the second week of May sees a lovely mix of new, deep catalog, and recent favorites all getting the 4K treatment. For one disc in particular, it's a shame Warner Bros. didn't see fit to include a certain suggestive popcorn bucket! Add in one of the craziest cult classics and one of the finest westerns ever made, and we've got to start clearing some shelf space! 

     

     

 

         

     

 


May 21st, 4K UHD Releases 

So this frame is rather interesting. Not only are we getting some exciting new and catalog titles but we're also getting something a little different. This frame will see the first wave of Paramount's multi-format 4K + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital releases priced at the bargain rate of about $10.99. While that price is appealing, these are packed in standard DVD-sized cases, so we'll see how well they sell to the collectors market or if they help tip some SD buyers into 4K collecting. 

     

     

     

     

  

Coming May 24th to 4K UHD 

 


May 28th, 4K UHD Releases

Unlike April, the last frame of May is a bit of a breather. There's plenty of great stuff coming, but a large chunk of it are the standard editions of Severin's more elaborate Website exclusives and a few other smaller trinkets. KLSC in particular has some solid titles coming our way too. 

     

     

     

 

 


And that's pretty much everything that's hitting the domestic market for 4K UHD Blu-rays in May. Obviously, some of these release dates could change and more stuff could slip in there without much fanfare or warning. If anything changes we'll update our listings and this article toot sweet. Happy Collecting!
