With filming set to wrap up in a few months, we are finally getting a new Bond film this year. Details have been sparse on Sam Mendes‘ Skyfall, but some more tidbits have trickled into today, along with new images thanks to French magazine Studio Ciné Live. We get our first look at Naomie Harris playing field agent Eve and Ralph Fiennes (with more details on his spoilery role here) in some unfortunately lo-res images, but there are a few nice stills of Daniel Craig in action as James Bond. The piece reveals that Mendes is intent on bringing more humor than in the last two movies and wants to explore the roots of the MI6. Check out the scans below and more details at Commander James Bond (via CBM).
Update: New, hi-res images have arrived, showing Craig and Fiennes in action, along with some wonderfully moody shots of Bond. The official site also brings new on-set featurette, which allows Bardem to give some insight into the film and his character.

When discussing the “merit” of titles joining The Criterion Collection, it seems like a no brainer to see Fred Newmeyer and Sam Taylor’s Safety Last! as the latest masterpiece to get a spine number. The Harold Lloyd-starring comedy remains an endlessly delightful romp, as inventive as well as relatable as it must have felt in [...]

Note: The following piece contains spoilers for both Shadow of a Doubt and Stoker. Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt is already available on Blu-ray, as a component of the sizeable Hitchcock box-set that was released last October. This month, however, sees its individual, standalone release on the format, and the timing couldn’t be more [...]
After a recent New York screening of František Vláčil‘s Marketa Lazarová, my friend and fellow critic, Vadim Rizov, tweeted the following response: “Sheep God war men snow church blood swords ‘old crone’ justice grass wtf WTF UNCLE.” He certainly wasn’t alone in such a confused response. Lazarová — now out on Blu-ray via Criterion — is [...]
