Artificial Eye again saves the day

Remember when I whined and moaned about Facets' upcoming DVD hatchet job of Sátántangó? If not, you can read about it here. What a mixed blessing that was. Well, now it turns out you don't have to blow $80 on a mangled non-transfer of a film that probably doesn't work on home video anyway. Because the rumors that the comically superior British company Artificial Eye were also working on a disc set turn out to have been totally true. And you only have to wait two more months. And it's almost half the price. If you'd like to drool over how A.E. treats Béla Tarr, hop over here.

Speaking of which, this is about as awesome.
