Chicago – What do Carol Reed’s beloved “The Third Man” and Jean-Pierre Jeunet & Marc Caro’s “Delicatessen” have in common? Almost nothing and yet I kind of love that they’re now linked in Lionsgate’s StudioCanal Collection because it illustrates the diversity of this increasingly-interesting wave of releases. They’ll never top The Criterion Collection, but it’s nice to have another series of timeless and modern classics making the Blu-ray market that much richer.
The Third Man was released on Blu-ray on September 14th, 2010

It’s rare that we can say something this squarely — Carol Reed’s “The Third Man” is one of the best films ever made. It’s one of those influential works that seems to constantly be in the film conversation, whether it be through a remastered print playing at a local theater, a new DVD/Bd release, »

Last week HeyUGuys were invited to attend the Alfred Dunhill BAFTA A Life in Pictures event and in an extended interview on stage at BAFTA Headquarters with critic, writer and broadcaster Francine Stock, French Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet reflected on his career to date.
Reminiscing about his film-making roots, Jeunet recalled his early love of film as a very young and wide-eyed 8 year old. Captivated by the movie, Once Upon a Time in the West, Jeunet cheerfully remembered how much it impacted him and piqued his interest in film-making. By the age of 12 , the budding film-maker had acquired his first camera, projector and view-master, and began dabbling in puppet theatre slides.
Mesmerised by the appeal of working with his own camera, Jeunet instinctively knew that he was destined to work in film. A sci-fi lover and fan of Italian and 1940s French cinema, Jeunet has always been passionately inspired by genres unbridled by limitation or imagination. »
