Criterion is going to release Orson Welles’ ‘Othello’

It was reported overnight by Wellesnet that the Criterion Collection is going to release Orson Welles’ Othello on Blu-ray in Fall 2015. This is incredible news. Othello (1952) is the last completed Orson Welles movie that I haven’t seen yet. (Obviously, I haven’t seen The Other Side of the Wind, which hasn’t been completed…yet.)

Hopefully, someone will get to release Chimes at Midnight soon. I only saw that once on a really terrible VHS copy that Hofstra University had in its video library. It might have even been a bootleg.

Anyway, more Orson Welles from Criterion is the best news of the day. Their releases of Mr. Arkadin and F For Fake (which I still haven’t picked up on Blu-ray) are essentials.
