The Complete Jean Vigo
Jean VigoEven among cinema’s greatest legends, Jean Vigo stands alone. The son of a notorious anarchist, Vigo had a brief but brilliant career making poetic, lightly surrealist films before his life was cut tragically short by tuberculosis at age twenty-nine. Like the daring early works of his contemporaries Jean Cocteau and Luis Buñuel, Vigo’s films refused to play by the rules. This set includes all of Vigo’s titles: À propos de Nice, an absurdist, rhythmic slice of life from the bustling coastal city of the title; Taris, an inventive short portrait of a swimming champion; Zéro de conduite, a radical, delightful tale of boarding-school rebellion that has influenced countless filmmakers; and, of course, L’Atalante, widely regarded as one of cinema’s finest achievements, about newlyweds beginning their life together on a canal barge. These are the endlessly witty, visually adventurous works of a pivotal film artist.

À propos de Nice, 1930, 23 min, B&W, Silent, 1.33:1

Taris, 1931, 9 min, B&W, Mono, In French with English subtitles, 1.19:1

By Brakhage: An Anthology, Volume One
Stan BrakhageWorking completely outside the mainstream, Stan Brakhage has made nearly 400 films over the past half century. Challenging all taboos in his exploration of "birth, sex, death, and the search for God," Brakhage has turned his camera on explicit lovemaking, childbirth, even actual autopsy. Many of his most famous works pursue the nature of vision itself and transcend the act of filming. Some, including the legendary Mothlight, were made without using a camera at all. Instead, Brakhage has pioneered the art of making images directly on film itself––starting with clear leader or exposed film, then drawing, painting, and scratching it by hand. Treating each frame as a miniature canvas, Brakhage can produce only a quarter- to a half-second of film a day, but his visionary style of image-making has changed everything from cartoons and television commercials to MTV music videos and the work of such mainstream moviemakers as Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, and Oliver Stone.

Criterion is proud to present 26 masterworks by Stan Brakhage in high-definition digital transfers made from newly minted film elements. For the first time on DVD, viewers will be able to look at Brakhage's meticulously crafted frames one by one.

The Quay Brothers: Collected Short Films
Stephen Quay, Timothy Quay, Christopher NolanSince the late 1970s, identical twins Stephen and Timothy Quay have been creating their unique blend of puppetry and stop-motion animation, and have, in the process, spawned an enormous cult following. The Quays display a passion for detail, a breathtaking command of color and texture, and an uncanny use of focus and camera movement that make their films unique and instantly recognizable. Best known for their classic 1986 film Street of Crocodiles which filmmaker Terry Gilliam selected as one of the ten best animated films of all time they are masters of miniaturization and on their tiny sets have created an unforgettable world, suggestive of a landscape of long-repressed childhood dreams.

The Order - From Cremaster 3
Matthew BarneyMatthew Barney's legendary CREMASTER SYCLE was hailed by the New York Times as "An Inspired Benchmark of ambition, scope and forthright provocation for art in the new century." Nine years in the masking, the five films that comprise the CREMASTER CYCLE came to a brilliant grand finale with a 31 minute sequence at the close of CREMASTER 3 called "THE ORDER". In "THE ORDER", a death-defying race to the top of the Guggenheim Museum, Matthew Barney is a tartan-clad apprentice seeking Masonic redemption. Before taking on legendary sculptor Richard Serra, who tosses molten Vaseline down the Guggenheim's ramps, Barney must bypass a troupe of tap-dancing girlscouts, a pair of dueling hardcore bands, a ravishing model who transforms herself into a cheetah, and a cabor toss with a flayed ram in a dizzying mirror to the artist's fantastical "CREMASTER CYCLE".
