BLU RAY?

The 1998 feature film about a young writer who follows strangers for material meets a thief who takes him under his wing.

Even if there was, it wouldn't exactly be a great transfer if they blew up the image. To retain any real detail, they'd have to keep the original ratio, which isn't great, really.

Yeah, if they did ever come out with a blu ray, it probably wouldn't have much of a quality difference to the DVD.


Heck ,I'm still waiting for a re-release of the DVD. Wasn't it going to be from Criterion? Supposedly their releases have a good reputation for being awesome.

sickofsickness emailed criterion about it awhile ago.

Hi Jonah,

Thanks for your email!

Yes, we do hope to release this film in the not-so-distant future but have no exact date set yet...

We try to announce our upcoming releases as far in advance as possible-- both on our website and in newsletter form. I recommend checking out the "Coming Soon" section of our website as well as our e-newsletter. I'm including direct links for you below.

I hope this helps, and feel free to write again should you have further questions!

Sincerely,

Jon Mulvaney


Also, I don't know who he was, but in one Facebook Criterion posting, someone in the comments said it will be 2012.

I already have the Following DVD, so the only supplementals I really am hoping for are the earlier Nolan shorts that have yet to be released. Improved picture & sound, new interviews are nice, but I want these shorts badly.

If it is without these, I doubt we will ever see them, so I hope to FSM that they will be on this release.

BUT, a 2012 release does seem logical, as it would coincide with TDKR
If they ever decide to followed through that would mean it would probably include some of his earlier short films, as Criterion tends to do that. As well as a spectacular transfer.

A 2012 would be perfect! My only Nolan movie left to buy on BD.

Is there any particular reason why this movie was never released on blu-ray?
