ROSEMARY’S BABY coming to The Criterion Collection?


The possibility of an edition of Roman Polanski's classic thriller, ROSEMARY'S BABY, released by The Criterion Collection has been rumored for ages.  The film seemed destined for Criterion (KNIFE IN THE WATER, CUL-DE-SAC, and, his best film in my eyes, REPULSION, have hit home video via the mighty C) and due to one of their ever-great "wacky drawings," looks to be made available soon.

Criterion's latest newsletter, released today, included  such a drawing.  With an eye towards this month's DVD/Blu-ray releases, the aforementioned piece of art features a heart alongside two sprigs of rosemary and is entitled, "Wacky Rosemary."

This is brilliant news.  I have a rather fine DVD version of the film myself but this is the one film in Polanski's canon, maybe more than any, that deserves the highest quality of Blu-ray available. Knowing Criterion, that would just scratch the surface of what they have planned.

What do you think?

About Joshua Brunsting

Born in the tiny Michigan city known as Holland, and raised in the even smaller city known as Saugatuck, I have been a film geek for the majority of my life, and have known film was my passion ever since the final frame of THE LION KING. I’m a romantic with a thing for 60’s pop music (preferably French), John Keats poems, and an even bigger thing for film noir. Currently a Journalism Major at Grand Valley State University, I am using my love of film, and my deathly, ninja-like, skill behind the keyboard to slowly take over the world. When I’m not writing about or watching film, I’m listening to music, particularly from the likes of TV on the Radio, Best Coast, and Semi Precious Weapons. I play the ukulele, and I also have a deep and intense love for Gustavo Santaolalla and Ennio Morricone, but then again, who doesn’t. I was drum major for my high school marching band for two years, I’m one of the four people who actually watched Dollhouse, and my favorite film of all time is Godard’s BREATHLESS. I’m a wannabe screenwriter, a wild thing, a nerd, a geek, and most importantly, I’m a lover of film. Oh, and I want to be Captain Planet when I grow up.
