I check in on various Criterion forums and subreddits from time to time and anytime anybody starts a thread about what's on everybody's Criterion wishlist somebody will inevitably mention Inland Empire, without fail. Also if the replies to this tweet are any indication...they'll sell some copies: https://twitter.com/janusfilms/status/1 ... 2591137793

I believe the thread where canthaveit started all this stuff about Wisteria was on Criterion's reddit page.

I dunno what a 4K scan of the 35mm blow up of SD video would look like....
I'm guessing that film blow up is the look Lynch wants.
but there may be ways to up rez the SD tapes he shot Inland Empire on a bit better now.

a lot of SD-shot Dr Who getting released to blu ray these days. I dunno how good they look.

Overall, the release (or re-release) of the music video tells us one very important thing in regards to Wisteria/Unrecorded Night:

We essentially still don't know anything.

NormoftheAndes wrote: Mon May 10, 2021 5:44 pm In terms of the US release of INLAND EMPIRE that's due, how many units can you see that shifting? I've got plenty of time for the film and extras would interest me but I am just wondering how much interest there really is in the US for that release now?
I'm sure it would sell pretty well just given how strong the Lynch brand name is when it comes to Criterion/boutique circles. Plus AFAIK it's not out on Blu Ray in the US and is otherwise hard to access?

There's also a fairly erroneous idea that a Criterion "restored" Blu Ray release would make the film somehow look significantly better than it does when of course it will always be tied to the very low resolution format it was shot on. But I've read various comments over the years from people clamouring for this release specifically just so they can see it in "better quality". They may be disappointed...

agree.

All you're both saying is of course correct. But, for what it's worth, the existing UK and German Blu-rays definitely offer superior image quality and sound than the US DVD - not because they make it look better, obviously, just more detail, closer to the theatrical presentation, etc. The best practical reason for Criterion to release it is so that all of Lynch's preferred subtitles make it onto a Blu-ray release with all of the DVD extras restored. As I once discussed in another thread, both the other foreign Blu-rays I own omit a key line or two in the subs that are on the DVD, and they have their own set of extras rather than Lynch's lovingly curated special features for the US release. And yes, I think it will sell well since it is Lynch and the film remains underseen.

On the subject of subtitles, how come the only four blu rays out of 250 that I own without subtitles or closed captions are Lynch movies?

Am I paranoid for not thinking it's a coincidence? Probably.

Haha, interesting. Makes sense. But to be clear for the record, I was talking about the English subs for the Polish parts on Inland Empire.

Maybe Lynch is averse to closed captioning? I never noticed as I don’t really use them. He has a hatred for all sorts of DVD features that can interfere with his preferred presentation of the film (chapter breaks, audio commentaries), so it’s certainly possible.

That one felt especially egregious. My disc has one "English" subtitles track for the Polish dialogue. They went through the effort of not hard coding them and including a seperate track only to refuse to include text for the English language parts on an SRT that's already there.

I get pushback whenever I suggest it might be an artistic choice but if it is then it's really indefensible. Some of us don't have good ears or have other difficulties requiring captions. No one is excluded by not adding chapter breaks but many are with not hearing stuff.

I've heard it's a rights issue or a Studio Canal choice but even then I have 20 Studio Canal titles and only two don't have subs. Both are Lynch films. The Mulholland Drive one includes subs for five other languages and English CCs for the extras. Just not the film itself.

Anyhow, sorry if I took this thread off track.

David definitely didn't record today's report on the same mics/recording environment. The sound quality is drastically reduced as if it's a whatsapp voice note.

The wheezing in his breath was very faint in prior reports because the mic was presumably a lot further away and had more dynamic range. The one today sounds like he's holding the device to his mouth. Tempo is also raised. And it happens to be the first report not to have video. Figures :D

Very interesting indeed. No explanation offered by Lynch as to why he has recorded it in a different fashion. Hmm.
