The Passenger has only been released in the US on VHS.

Criterion did release an excellent LD of Blow Up, but either because their rights permission ran out or other obstacles, they haven't committed it to DVD.

>> where has the copy of red desert gone too?

Yup. It went OOP last year.

I hadn't noticed that the GC listing for Red Desert was listed as currently unavailable. Too bad. I thought that they had a copy.

It will come back in print eventually. I've got a copy of Red Desert, but always hope for a better print to come along one day. Patience rules!

The one film of Antonioni that I haven't got, but would very much like is L'eclisse. There is a 1.33 DVD available in Italy, perhaps without subs, and maybe a questionable print, so why buy. I'll gladly sit on my hands and wait for a good print of L'eclisse to appear on DVD. If it looks as good as La notte, then that will be fine.

You HAVE a copy of Identificazione di una donna??? Where did you get it? That's the only Antonioni film I really like. Very cool...

Blow Up is scheduled to be released on DVD in Feb. 2004 but I don't think it's Criterion that will be releasing it.

Criterion's edition of L'Avventura is magnificent. Stunning film, stunning transfer, etc. I think they're also due to release L'Eclisse, right? It's stuck in my head because I remember thinking they were going through an Alain Delon phase, starting with Le Cercel Rouge...

Found it: In March, John Mulvaney said "We hope to release L'Eclisse in the future, but nothing is definite at the moment." So maybe.

Non ho Identificazione di una donna. You misunderstood. If available on DVD, and if a decent print, i.e. in original aspect ratio, and with subtitles, etc., I'll buy. I have an all-region DVD player and have collected a few DVDs from European vendors in GB & Italy.

Blowup is being released by Warner Bros. who will also be releasing two Visconti films, Death in Venice and The Damned.

L'Eclisse has been on Criterion's back burner for a while. You can bet when BFI or the Film Forum screens a new print that it will eventually appear on DVD.
