When is the damn MOVIE coming out in the U.S.?!


In the spring! That could mean anytime from late March to mid-June.

Original cover is much stronger, I think, than the US version. Regardless I will be buying it.

We can not change the two editions. We have a commitment with the Film Company and Mr. Donaggio to releasing at least one of them in digipak format. But believe me, is a very classy digipak.



The French cover captures the erotic elements of the film, and the U.S.
cover conveys the thriller aspects. Both are valid (and beautiful).
I want both of them. The one that makes me smile more is the
U.S. cover - with Rachel McAdams getting ready to strangle! smile

Samples sound wonderful, it's great to hear some new Donaggio.

The studio & composer may want digipacks but I'm glad the International version is in a jewel case.

A must-get, even if I never see the film. Hopefully, this will not be the last collaboration between this superb composer and your wonderful label.

Great news!
And while I prefer the more subtle French cover artwork, I will have to settle for the inferior (to me) cover because I much prefer a jewel case to protect my disc and booklet.
Still, it's all about the music and I doubt Pino will let me down.

I don't know about anybody else here, but I know jewel cases in bulk when divided by the total cost and quantity, aren't that expensive, but it's well worth it compared to a digipak. I'd gladly pay a dollar more for a jewel case. But a decent one, not one of those cheap ones that when it comes in the mail, all the little things in hte middle have borken off and slided around in the case, of cheap connectors that break the fromt housing off easily.

I have two digipaks, and I hate them both with a passion. And it's especially tough when you have to moved around constantly and the outer art gets ruined, and the thinner up-holder of the CD's makes it more susceptible to scratching and rubbing.

But, for however bad digipaks are,it's nothing compared to those horrible whatever-they-are-called's where you slip the CD in like it's a paper slip (short of looks like a digipak, only now CD holder); I got one of those. Horrible.

I buy re-sealable mylar bags for my digitpaks, etc. They keep everything nice & safe.

OK, you spoke and we listened. The French cover issue will be on digipak, but the US release finally will be on STANDART JEWEL BOX PACKAGE.

The digipak was a desire of the Film Company and the composer, and more expensive for us, but if it makes unhappy to the customer, we have no problem in change one of the editions. Fortunately we still have time to change this.


Awesome !!! The guys from Quartet are now my favourite label producers - I would have never expected a reaction at all.

And if they are now also going to release PHASE IV they would be my fave label as well.
It's Saul Bass' one and only feature film as a director !!

Pre-ordered my copy of this from Screen Archives a couple days ago when I pre-ordered The Fury on Blu-ray. Can't wait! Double De Palma!! big grin

I hope Pino continues to work with De Palma on every movie he does.

Not a word of notes in the booklet?
What's the point of having two editions, French and English, if there's not a word of notes in either French or English in either booklet????
As there are no notes in any language inside, you could just as well call it a German, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Spanish or Swahili edition.

What's the point of having two editions, in French and English, if there's not a word of either French or English in either booklet????
If there's no notes in any language inside, you could just as well call it a combined German, Italian, Russian, Chinese and Swahili edition.


Liner notes were not permitted by the licensor in this album. Licensors rarely allows liner notes in new films. Also, the composer did not want notes.
In any case, we have announced two different COVERS, not booklets (and we have never announced that this album includes liner notes from anyone). Two different covers is the legal term that we have with the licensor to distribute the album in different territories.
It's easy and insane criticize without knowing the legal terms that are behind each product.
And we have no obligation to teach any contract on any board, of course.

I saw the film last week on a local festival and thought it was pretty bad. But the score, on the other hand, is very good. I think that the CD might be included in my next order!

Quartet: please do not get discouraged by the negative voices on the board. We appreciate all your great releases, as well as the insight knowledge which you regularly share on this board.

Exactly, I doubt they'll get an apology as ol' grumpy will probably find something else negative to rant about.

Well, that's a little dispiriting. I mean, the licensors are granting the rights to have a soundtrack produced; pouring money into putting it out. Really, what's a couple of paragraphs?

And can I assume that De Palma didn't want to provide notes, either?

Don't get me wrong. I'm still buying the album, but, yeah, dispiriting.

What is up with track 12? Sounds like the speaker has a screw loose. Try from 1'40" to 1'50" for example, through headphones. Thought my tweeter was a goner at first, but two pairs of good headphones confirm otherwise.

No credit to Ravel's Pavane pour une infante défunte for tracks 2 and 12... Sad.

Got the album today. Pretty nice. So far, the techno tracks co-authored with Paolo Steffan are my favorites, though "Journey Through a Nightmare" is a beautiful track.

Still, there was room for a picture of a white-faced clown, but no notes. Bizarre.
