Indications of Incoming Indicator Entertainments

My phrase, not theirs, inspired by the fact that two members of the Second Run team also work for Indicator, as does a regular contributor to their releases (me).

It really blows my mind that Disney/Fox wouldn't issue out HealtH, when they clearly don't and never have had any intention to release it on physical media. It's been uploaded in full on YT for years- so why not make some side money?
I remember reading years ago somebody saying that the problem with a physical media release of HealtH was in relation to music rights and that was back in the days of DVD. How true this is I don't know. It is my most wanted Altman on Blu Ray and I've only ever seen it once and gratefully on the big screen.

It may well be entirely true. It's perfectly plausible that a film from 1980 might only have had its music rights cleared for theatrical exhibition and possibly TV sales - the video market was a thing by then, but major studios were still being very cautious about getting too involved with it.

Just had a look on imdb and it states there that is has never been released on Video or DVD due to music rights issues - maybe that is where I read it initially.

I saw it at the 1982 Sydney Film Festival where is was the closing night film. It later popped up on TV during the late 1980s/early 1990s. It may have played on Foxtel back in the late 1990s but that is about it.

Anyway, really looking forward to Indicator's Diary of a Mad Housewife.

I got tired of waiting for HOUSEWIFE so I bought the US blu ray (Region A of course). I’d like to think Indicator will include either the extra (deleted) scenes from the TV version or perhaps the modified version in its entirety. This version contains a many interesting scenes. For example: the attempted ‘rape’ scene after the girls go to school, an expanded version of the opening credit sequence (with dialogue intact), psychiatry scenes, etc...

If French extreme cinema is going to be a thing at Indicator, then Man Bites Dog would be a powerful choice. The Tartan license is surely up for grabs by now.

Now that’s a film I’ve not seen or thought of in a long time. It’d be interrsting to see a fresh appraisal of the film, although Man Bites Dog is Belgian.

...and there are no indications of it being an incoming Indicator entertainment.

I would be interested in hearing the story behind Indicator licensing Irreversible - is it a personal favourite of one of the team or did Studio Canal offer it up on a platter and Indicator thought it was too 'big' to turn down?

Given that Indicator are pretty much the only boutique label who have a relationship with Canal, it would be great if Irreversible wasn't the one and only French language title that they got from them. I'd love them to license some Tavernier, Godard, Borowczyk's La Marge, Téchiné's Wild Reeds, Carax's Lovers on the Bridge, and Zulawski's The Most Important Thing: Love

While the man on the left does seem like Yaphet Kotto to me, I don't think it's that film. I've just skimmed through it and I don't see any scenes where Kotto is in that outfit, any scenes that take place at a location with those signs, or any actor who looks like the man on the right.

I’ve not seen the film, but that’s defintely not Yaphet Kotto.

I was thinking it could've been either Browne or Kotto from that film, but since it's clear it's not that film at all, now I'm thinking along the lines of Poitier (rolled-up sleeves, fairly tall, short hair). Could even be a black-and-white film and this is a behind-the-scenes still, so that would cast the net quite wide (50's into 60's, maybe even 70's).

Or it's none of those things and it's something we're not at all expecting (would be a classic Indicator move).

Putney Swope and The People Next Door are two of the August releases as per a one page spread in the latest Little White Lies magazine.

Has anyone seen The People Next Door? I was thinking over the US release but the plot description sounds a bit too “a very special episode”.

I wonder if Indicator will release the TV version of The People Next Door, also directed by David Greene and with an equally (but differently) enticing cast, as a supplement.
