Dois filmes de diretores consagrados e dois filmes com nove décadas de idade estão entre os lançamentos de março

A Época da Inocência, do Martin Scorsese, com Daniel Day Lewis e Michelle Pfeiffer saiu em DVD por aqui pela Sony e há muito tempo está esgotado. Esta edição tupiniquim, que conta com os dizeres “Edição Especial” na capa, vem com extras incríveis, tais como menu e legenda… -_-

Baal, de Volker Schlöndorff, é um obscuro filme alemão feito para a TV em 1970, baseado na primeira peça completa de Bertold Brecht e conta com o cineasta Rainer Werner Fassbinder no papel do protagonista do título. Nunca saiu por aqui.

Realizado em 1928 (há 90 anos (!!!)), A Paixão de Joana D´Arc, do Carl Theodor Dreyer, é a versão cinematográfica mais admirada sobre a icônica líder francesa. Saiu no Brasil em DVD pela Versátil numa edição especial que contava com duas versões do filme: em 20 e em 24 quadros por segundo.

Mais um filme na bica de fazer 90 anos, King of Jazz, de 1930, é um belo e exuberante musical em cores que nunca saiu por aqui. Bem que a Classicline, que tem experiência em filmes do gênero, podia se animar e lançar por aqui.

Mulheres apaixonadas, de 1969, foi dirigido pelo inglês Ken Russell (que dirigiu a ópera rock Tommy, com o The Who) e tem Oliver Reed no elenco. Saiu por aqui pela Versátil com trailer , galeria de fotos e texto sobre o diretor. A edição da Criterion tem uma linda capa do artista Kent Williams, muito conhecido pela minissérie em quadrinhos Fusão, com o Wolverine (bem que a Panini podia relançar esse material).
