Announcement: The October Criterion Blu-Ray Releases!

At last! The Criterion Collection's Blu-Ray release of Howards End (1992) is announced! Due out in October - the 20th, to be exact - the release will feature, in addition to its gorgeous cover/box art, special features including an original behind-the-scenes featurette from the duration of filming, a 50-minute documentary about the history of The Merchant-Ivory Collection of films, and a critical essay by The Los Angeles Times' Kenneth Turan.

The film's October release will be coupled with two other Blu-Ray releases from the revered film-house: Wim Wender's Wings of Desire (1987) and Mira Nair's (A. B., Harvard College '71) sumptuous Monsoon Wedding (2001), both new additions to the Collection.
