It’s Lionsgate, releasing Contempt on Blu-Ray. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
The iconic Brigitte Bardot heats up the screen in this subversive drama about marriage, motive and the motion picture industry from French director Jean-Luc Godard, named the #4 “most influential director of all time” by Moviemaker Magazine. Called “a great movie” by Entertainment Weekly, this film within a film is, on the surface, about a director whose wife Camille falls out of love with him while he is rewriting an adaptation of Homer’s “Odyssey” for an American producer. However, underneath this tragic tale of a doomed romance lies the true subject: the commercial film industry, which Godard shows his contempt for in a directing performance that is slyly subversive, darkly comic and completely original. The Blu-ray Disc is presented in 1080P High Definition Widescreen format with French, English, Spanish and German DTS Master Audio. Special features on the disc include an introduction by British film producer and Godard expert Colin MacCabe, a “making-of” documentary “One Upon a Time There Was…Contempt,” a documentary on Godard’s legacy in film “Contempt…Tenderly,” a discussion between Godard and director Fritz Lang “The Dinosaur and the Baby,” the theatrical trailer, BD-Live and a 20-page collectible booklet.
