In a sane world, we would have had it long before this ... sadly with the current climate 'over there' ;);) .... common sense is at an all time low. You can but hope though ... stranger things have happened .....

Yes, but thereís no point lobbying the wrong people. Itís Warner US thatís the sticking point - even Warner UK was prepping a 2005 DVD release, which was when the commentary was recorded. And Iím sure Criterion has raised the issue with them.

Well now we know who to lobby eh?

Not all of us work inside the industry.;)

God it'd be great if Criterion got their hands on it!

Thereís nothing to stop you petitioning either the BFI or Warner Bros, and many have done over the last fifteen years or so.

But my point is that targeting the BFI is a complete waste of time and effort: you wonít be telling them anything they donít already know or suggesting anything that they wouldnít gladly have done back in 2012.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 4th June 2018 07:21 PM

Point taken Mike.
As I said,not everyone is privvy to 'industry insider' info like yourself,and as the BFI did such a sterling job on the dvd package,well for any of us 'mere mortals',that would be the sensible place to start imo.:)

Anyone picked up The Touch yet?

One of the 2 Bergman films, I've never seen. It's meant to be rubbish and he hated it but feel I need to watch it.

Distant Voices, Still Lives is being released on Blu-Ray on October 22nd, 2018

It's available on Amazon UK pre-order for £15.99

"Distant Voices, Still Lives (Blu-ray)
Directed by Terence Davies

Terence Davies film, depicting life in working-class Liverpool from the 1940s into the 50s, is 30 years old this year, and already a modern classic.

Now that Eileen, Maisie, and Tony are adults, their childhood memories and in particular those associated with their father are inconsistent. While Eileen clings to happier times, her siblings remember his brutal violent nature, which has been a major influence on their growth and development. This troubled family must deal with the day-to-day alongside their past. Terence Davies creates a loving portrait with this partly autobiographical tale (shot in two sections), and it was voted one of the greatest British films by Sight and Sound.

Distant Voices, Still Lives has been restored in 4K resolution by the BFI under the supervision and approval of director Terence Davies.
