Bergman, Tarkovsky, Assayas & More Coming to The Criterion Collection in September 2018

Coming this September, Olivier Assayas’s long-unavailable coming-of-age masterpiece Cold Water, recently released theatrically for the first time in the U.S., will join the Criterion Collection in a new 4K restoration supervised by the director. Andrei Tarkovsky’s monumental epic Andrei Rublev will make its Blu-ray debut in an edition that includes both the director’s preferred 185-minute cut and the extended cut that was suppressed by Soviet censors. A Raisin in the Sun, the classic film version of Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking play about a Chicago family’s struggle against racism and class barriers, starring Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee, will appear in a new 4K restoration. American inequality gets lampooned from the top down in My Man Godfrey, the uproarious Depression-era screwball comedy starring William Powell and Carole Lombard, now on Blu-ray. And that’s not all: Ingmar Bergman plumbs the emotional depths of a couple’s life together and apart in Scenes from a Marriage, on Blu-ray for the first time.
