FANTASTIC MR FOX

Fantastic Mr. Fox is the story of a clever, quick, nimble, and exceptionally well-dressed wild animal. A compulsive chicken thief turned newspaper reporter, Mr. Fox settles down with his family at a new foxhole in a beautiful tree directly adjacent to three enormous poultry farms—owned by three ferociously vicious farmers: Boggis, Bunce, and Bean. Mr. Fox simply cannot resist. This adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novel from WES ANDERSON (The Royal Tenenbaums) is a meticulous work of stop-motion animation featuring vibrant performances by George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Michael Gambon, and Bill Murray.

DEVI

Master filmmaker SATYAJIT RAY (The Apu Trilogy) explores the conflict between fanaticism and free will in Devi (The Goddess), issuing a subversively modern challenge to religious orthodoxy and patriarchal power structures. In the waning days of mid-nineteenth-century India’s feudal system, after his son (Apur Sansar’s SOUMITRA CHATTERJEE) leaves for Kolkata to complete his studies, a wealthy rural landowner (The Music Room’s CHHABI BISWAS) is seized by the notion that his beloved daughter-in-law (The Hero’s hauntingly sad-eyed SHARMILA TAGORE) is the reincarnation of the goddess Kali—a delusion that proves devastating to the young woman and those around her. The opulently stylized compositions and the chiaroscuro lighting by cinematographer Subrata Mitra (Charulata) heighten the entrancing expressionistic intensity of this domestic tragedy, making for an experience that is both sublime and shattering.

THE THIN RED LINE

After directing two of the most extraordinary movies of the 1970s, Badlands and Days of Heaven, American artist TERRENCE MALICK disappeared from the film world for twenty years, only to resurface in 1998 with this visionary adaptation of James Jones’s 1962 novel about the World War II battle for Guadalcanal. A big-budget, spectacularly mounted epic, The Thin Red Line is also one of the most deeply philosophical films ever released by a major Hollywood studio, a thought-provoking meditation on man, nature, and violence. Featuring a cast of contemporary cinema’s finest actors—SEAN PENN (Dead Man Walking, Milk), NICK NOLTE (The Prince of Tides, Affliction), ELIAS KOTEAS (Zodiac, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), and WOODY HARRELSON (Natural Born Killers, The People vs. Larry Flynt) among them—The Thin Red Line is a kaleidoscopic evocation of the experience of combat that ranks as one of cinema’s greatest war films.


The Criterion Collection and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment present FANTASTIC MR FOX on 1st November, and DEVI and THE THIN RED LINE on 22nd November, on Blu-ray™
