5.0 out of 5 stars Heads-Up: Special Edition Coming Later, November 23, 2013
This review is from: Blue Is the Warmest Color (Criterion Collection) (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
I just want to give everyone a heads-up that Criterion will be releasing a Special Edition for this film later next year. The film is fantastic, and I am giving it 5 stars, but the review is simply a heads-up in case you didn't know there was a better edition coming out later.

Criterion specifically says this on the product page for the movie:

"A full special edition treatment of this film will follow at a later date."

I hope this helps someone. I know I'd be upset if I spend $20 on this basic edition, and then found out later that there's another coming out with a lot more extras included.

Actually, a longer cut in rumored to be released in video. This low price release might then be the only possibility to get the theatrical cut, should this longer cut replace the theatrical cut for video release (which would be sad, because one should always have the choice).

Hi, and thanks for the comment. If the longer cut is included, I think Criterion will likely include the theatrical as well. This first release was meant to be a barebones one, but the special edition is meant to be definitive, and that wouldn't be the case if it only included one cut, and not both.

Do you mean the criterion release coming out February 25th is the special edition? Or criterion is releasing another version later on? I've never heard of them doing that.

M. Pereira says:
Hi, the one coming out in February is the regular edition. There will be a special edition later on. You can see it on the movie page at their site:

http://www.criterion.com/films/28603-blue-is-the-warmest-color?q=autocomplete

Under special features it says:

"A full special edition treatment of this film will follow at a later date."

It's the first time they've done that for Blu-rays, I'm not sure if they have for DVD's or Laserdiscs though.

Sorcerer is a title Paramount gave to Warner to distribute, so there's nothing Criterion could do about that. It's also arguably getting a more premium release since it'll be specially packaged in a Digibook, and have several extras.

Your comment has nothing to do with M. Pereira's helpful "review" so stop trying to piggyback off of it to preach your opinions on what constitutes art.

Do you think the Special Edition treatment will include an English dubbed version?

Not quite sure I like the idea of Criterion releasing 2 editions of this. To me, "full special edition" is synonymous with the word "Criterion" - meaning that ANY Criterion release *should* be the definitive "full special edition."

So why the rush to get this out? Why not wait until the complete release, worthy of the Criterion branding, can be completed? Is this going to be something that they do now, barebones releases and then "special editions" later? Because again, I thought "Criterion" WAS a special edition onto itself.

I guess it just doesn't make any sense to me - and makes me a slight paranoid. lol
