Moisés wraps up his Soderbergh retrospective.
Moisés continues our first experiment in long form retrospectives, taking us from Soderbergh’s third feature, KAFKA, to OCEAN’S ELEVEN a full ten years later.
Welcome to Badass Digest’s week-long Steven Soderbergh career retrospective.
Moisés finally picks a name and regular format for his Criterion column and digs into a bunch of recent news, discs, rumors, and idle speculation. He’s also started re-numbering at #1 just like a comic book reboot (just to frustrate continuity nuts).
This is easily the second best news of the day behind that amazing Drew Struzan FRANKENSTEIN print.

More Kubrick and Polanski join the Collection, along with a great modern Korean film. They pay tribute to Jean Vigo and Koreyoshi Kurahara with a pair of box sets. Cocteau’s Orpheus, Battle of Algiers, and If… get Blu-ray upgrades. Read on for more details.

It was only a matter of time…and money.
We don’t usually cover “hey, movie X is gonna be on Blu-ray” press releases so as to not clog your RSS feeds. A notable exception occurs when a studio licenses 25-year-old commentary tracks from Criterion that include Martin Scorsese.
