Criterion Made Mine! The Hedwig and the Angry Inch Edition

John Cameron Mitchell hasn’t been the best about keeping a secret of the forthcoming Criterion edition of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, even announcing just recently that the film was slated for a summer release. Thankfully, and true to John’s word, that announcement came earlier today from the Criterion CollectionMMC! is happy to say we had this back in 2015, right down to the booklet essay by Stephanie Zacharek. The announcement promises “More!” disc features, so MMC! has fingers crossed that the Follow My Voice: With the Music of Hedwig documentary and the Anatomy of a Scene featurette will also find their way to this edition.

June 2019 looks extremely solid with releases of the epic 7-hour War and Peace by Sergei Bondarchuk, Astaire and Rogers’ Swing Time, a Blugrade of the Ingmar Bergman Film Trilogy, and two early efforts by MMC! favourite Bruno Dumont. Thank goodness that earlier today Arrow Academy only announced a multi-region release of Carol Reed’s The Running Man and a Region 2 release of Jacques Tourneur’s Nightfall. Fiscal responsibility, homes!

    Nice write up as always! Criterion made mine with War and Peace, always wanted to see it and the Criterion royal treatment is a bonus. Will make a fine companion piece to my BFI Blu Ray of Abel Gance’s Napoleon.

      Me too! I’m probably looking forward to seeing War and Peace most of all.
